Product Description

Laurie's in love. Danny's in trouble. Shirley's in debt. And Keith is flunking sex education! These are just a few of the hijinks that take place in the celebrated third season of TV's beloved The Partridge Family! Join Academy Award-winner Shirley Jones (Actress in Supporting Role 1960 for Elmer Gantry) and America's original idol, David Cassidy, with Susan Dey, Danny Bonaduce, Dave Madden, and the rest of the talented cast as pop's first family meets a princess, a convict, a biker, and a millionaire while taking on rogue computers, racehorses, crooks, crushes, and even a flash flood! With an all-star guest cast taht includes Ray Bolger, Arte Johnson, Anthony Geary, John Astin, and a very young Jodie Foster, The Partridge Family: The Complete Third Season is your backstage pass to life, love, and laughs with the tuneful, terrific Partridge Family!

An explosion of stripes, pastels, and pure bubblegum pop music, The Partridge Family were more popular than The Brady Bunch when they were both on the air. It's easy to see why; though perhaps best known for launching David Cassidy as a pop idol, The Partridge Family merged infectious melodies with fresh writing and charming, lighthearted performances. In The Complete Third Season, the show is at its peak. The touring of a family band had largely been laid aside; the focus is on domestic life, though every episode features at least one musical number. Dating, school, and family squabbles form the bulk of the plots, but the topical issues of the 1970s crop up again and again: Some of the best episodes grapple with the battle of the sexes, permissive parenting, group therapy, and sex education (which receives a firm endorsement from this family show). Of course, there's also silliness--the family has to dress as chickens when they get hired for a commercial, an escaped convict holds them hostage in their own home--but the stories are consistently well-crafted. Furthermore, the show stands out for its willingness to puncture sentimentality. When Keith Partridge (Cassidy) runs for student body president and nobly asks the students to vote for his more qualified opponent, his younger brother and campaign manager Danny (Danny Bonaduce) disgustedly mutters, "I've molded a loser!"

The show's bedrock appeal lies in Shirley Jones' wholesome foxiness, Cassidy's genuine pop charisma (as well as his willingness to be the butt of a joke), and Bonaduce's caustic preadolescent deadpan. But Susan Dey as oldest sister Laurie became a key player this season, demonstrating the charm and wit that would lead her to further stardom on L.A. Law (she also gets the most spectacular outfits--check out the red plaid jumpsuit she wears in the escaped convict episode!). Guest stars include such classic 1970s support players as Bert Convy, Mary Ann Mobley, and Nancy Walker; future sitcom stars like Gordon Jump (WKRP in Cincinnati) and Charlotte Rae (Diff'rent Strokes, The Facts of Life); and even future movie stars like Jodie Foster, who punches Danny in the eye when he tries to kiss her. The Partridge Family was a winning show, clever, cheerful, and actually funny. Regrettably, there are no audio commentaries or interviews with the cast. --Bret Fetzer

I'm a Partridge Family fan from when it first aired. I had every album, knew every word to every song, watched every night.. had the neighbors in our garage with the record player and tennis racket for guitars, boxes and cans and chopsticks for my drums, the banana seat on my bike as a keyboard, and a real tamborine as we all played with the Partridges AS the Partridge Family, singing to imaginary crowds or garage rehersals.. for hours on end.

I have to disagree. The FIRST season was the BEST! (Jeremy Gelbwaks was a better Chris Partridge. Had more and better lines). However... owning Season 3 and hopefully soon Season 4 to complete my Partridge Family Collection would be the a dream come true.

No, it did not go to a 5th season, and I totally agree... I hope it doesn't take as long to release the final.. season 4.. Would be nice if they include some interviews with the cast.. (including Jeremy). Would be nice to see HOW they recorded the music scenes for the show... (Pads over the drums and keyboards). Maybe even include the "This Is Your Life" on Shirley Jones, as well as include the HORRIBLE NEW PARTRIDGE FAMILY pilot they did in 2005. (It was better than The Partridge Family AD cartoon).

Would also be nice if they released another CD with more unreleased songs on it too as a set.

Bring back this kind of TV and maybe kids would be different! I love this show not just for David Cassidy but its entertaining. Many out there I know are not fans of this but at leaset it is good clean humour and the whole family can watch it unlike many of the shows on TV today. My twenty year old daughter loves it as much as I do. And you have to admit David Cassidy is sucha spunk. I also like the way he is with his step mother Shirley Jones I think this series made them closer. Great family viewing.

The Partridge Family's third season was definitely among this series' best: the characters had gelled; the plotlines were solid (and more hilarious than ever!); and the music, like its prime audience, was maturing. I LOVE this season, and this show (can you tell? LOL), and CAN HARDLY WAIT TILL ITS RELEASE THIS FALL!!! I know this is a bit belated on my part, but THANKS SONY!! And I hope all we PF fans can all look forward to the series FINAL Season in the not-too-distant future as well! Thanks again to everyone responsible for making this happen!!!

I think movies and TV shows pretty much speak for themselves. If you are searching for this movie/show, you must be considering buying it. I purchased this for my electronic library because I did not feel the need to have the media. I am very happy with the fact that I can go to my library from my phone or tablet whenever I want to and watch this. It is also handy to be able to access it on my home theatre system you finish one and then go to the next; it avoids having to run up and down the stairs switching out DVD’s .

We have had this movie for a few years now and decided I should write a review. I bought it for my wife who loves this TV Series. We bought this movie from Amazon because at the time it was not available in Australia. Highly recommended..

This old 70's sitcom has a reputation for being corny because it is clear that the children are not singing or playing instruments during the concert scenes, but the writing is humorous, and the acting is actually pretty good. If you watched the Partridge Family every Friday night when you were young, you will enjoy seeing it again. I did.

This season and the first two are my favorites. I recommend all 4 seasons, but seasons 3 and 4 are where David Cassidy really takes the spotlight. These are very entertaining shows to watch. The color and sound quality is great and these DVD's are well worth the money spent.
