Rules of Engagement: Season 3

Customers Who Bought This Item Also Bought
New characters introduced this season include Orlando Jones as Brad, whom Jeff is surprised to find that he likes despite his being gay, and Timmy (Adhir Kalyan), nominally Russell's "assistant" but in reality his servant and all-around whipping boy. The latter is a great addition; in the "Family Style" episode, Russell's dating a therapist who refuses to take him on as a patient, so he sends Timmy in his stead, with hilarious results. Elsewhere, veteran actor Brian Dennehy guests as Jeff's father, whose chauvinism toward women in general and Audrey in particular makes his son look like the Dalai Lama, while other funny story lines involve Audrey pretending to be pregnant in order to get special treatment at work, Jeff injuring his back (and confronting his creeping senescence) playing softball, and Russell trying to induct a wide-eyed Amish visitor into his depraved lifestyle. With its constant sexual innuendo and gags about homosexuality, male braggadocio, and such, Rules of Engagement isn't exactly for intellectuals; nor is it likely to join All in the Family, M*A*S*H, Seinfeld, and others in the pantheon of immortal sitcoms. But that shouldn't stop this entertaining show from continuing to find a broad and loyal audience. --Sam Graham

Seasons 3 consists of thirteen episodes that aried from March - May 2009 as a midseaon pick up.
Season 3 comes in a DVD Boxed Set with all 13 Episodes spread across 2 discs. The front cover has the cast laying on the show's famous Bed with the text "Rules of Engagement: The Complete Fourth Season." This set, sadly, contains absolutely no bonus material or motion menus. The menu is a picture (the picture is the EXACT same as the cover) with the choices Play All, Episodes, or Set Up.
The first disc comes in a DVD slip cover. The front cover has a englarged picture of Jeff (Patrick Warburton) and Audrey (Megyn Price) and a small picture of Russel (David Spade)in the corner. The back cover features an episode list with descriptions of each episode. The art on the disc features Audrey, Jeff, and Russel (with the same exact same pictures of them as the front cover). The first disc contains episodes 1-7.
The second disc comes in another DVD slip cover. The front cover features an enlarged picture of Jennifer (Bianca Kajlich) and Adam (Oliver Hudson) with a small picture of Russel in the Russel (David Spade) in the top corner. The bac freatures an episode list with descriptions of each episode. The disc art features Adam, Jennifer, and Timmy (Adhir Kalyan - credited as "Special Guest Star" during this season) with the same pictures as the front cover. Disc 2 contains episodes 8-13.
This season of Rules of Engagement is my 2nd favorite of the whole series, close behind Season 4. This seasons cast members include Patrick Warburton, Megyn Price, Oliver Hudson, Bianca Kajlich, and David Spade.Read more ›
I will buy the rest of the seasons in the near future. The negative side and the reason I give it four stars instead of five is because these season DVDs are very short; seasons 3 and 4 are only 276 and 277 minutes. They are roughly half the length of Two and a Half Men season DVDs. I checked two of the seasons I have and they were both over 500 minutes. I own about 8 seasons and I am pretty sure they are all about that length. Maybe that’s why I hadn't seen Rules of Engagement sitcom any sooner--their seasons are mini ones.
