Please, sir, may I have some more "Mad About You"?
Verified purchase
I'm hoping the powers that be will continue to release the remaining seasons of "Mad About You" on DVD. But at least we now have the third season, which is one of the show's best. My partner and I used to watch this series early on in our relationship, and we kind of identified with the two lead characters, Paul and Jamie Buchman, who are coping with married life. Paul Reiser and Helen Hunt are perfect in their roles, and they work so well together. Their comic timing along with that of their delightful co-stars Leila Kenzle, John Pankow and especially the wonderful Anne Ramsay as Jamie's wacky sister, Lisa, is what makes "Mad About You" such a great sitcom. This show makes me laugh out loud. I think almost every episode during its third season is a winner, but a few of my favorites are: "The Ride Home" (Paul and Jamie go to a party and meet guest stars Eric Stoltz--who plays her old boyfriend--and Wendie Malick), "Giblets for Murray" (a hysterical Thanksgiving episode), "Purseona" (Jamie and Lisa switch purses accidentally), "Two Tickets to Paradise" (the Buchmans go on vacation) and "Cake Fear" (Paul celebrates his birthday). Plus Carl Reiner and Cyndi Lauper each show up on an episode. If you're looking for a sassy sitcom to make you smile, be sure to check this one out.

I forgot how much I love this show
Verified purchase
Although the show can be quirky and there are a few episodes (overall) that I don't like, I find myself drawn to this sitcom as much as I am to Seinfeld or Everybody Loves Raymond. The assortment of talented character actors along with Paul & Jamie just make this sitcom hilarious. I have watched many a re-run over the years and am glad they finally released the 3rd season and can only hope they continue on.

If you've never watched the show, find some re-runs on TV before committing to the DVDs or rent some. I find the show appealing because it is about two obsessive compsulsive people and their adventures in life - from dealing with their neighbors to their crazy friends and family. The sitcom did suffer some low points along the way, as most long-running shows do. Still, I think you'll like it if you give it a try.

...jump into the not-so-final frontier...

hey...we can breathe again...

someone wiser (and richer) than us decided it was time to release season three...(now let's not wait many more birthdays before the rest of the troops arrive, o.k.?)...

i for one, am exstatic about the release of this season, specifically for the "up in smoke" two-parter...i just always thought that that was one of the coolest episodes...

also, this season really entrenched john pankow into the fold, and all i can say is...more ira, better shows...

and this season was also depth-charging the characters, leading them into what would follow...

so what's not to love...(true, the packaging is skimpy, and the extras are non-existant, but we knew that from season one and two, and would be one of the few reasons for the 'collection' box...)

so, think about it...new york, buchmans, ira, fran...throw in pizza and an onion bagel and we'll call it even...

I really like this television series and wish it had continued------
Verified purchase
I like this TV series very much. I once lived in NYC and can identify with some of the neighborhoods and areas in the show, and the scenery, which makes the show all the more enjoyable. The characters are great and well cast. I love the dog, Murray!, especially when they tell him to "Get the Mouse." The show makes NYC feel like a great place! Also, the people!!! That's the way I remember it! I miss the show, and wish it had continued. I would tell anyone to buy the entire series. It has a nice warmth to it!! Very well acted!

No extras, no subtitles but it has closed caption!
Verified purchase
Yes, for everyone of you who speaks another language but already know some English: it has closed caption so it helps a lot! This kind of series need it frequently because of the fast dialogs. It's so funny. I don't miss at all the spanish audio track (even when it's a good translation) but I already miss the spanish subtitles.

Anyway, I can't wait for the 4th season!

But please give it some extras! maybe some "behind the camera" scenes (I know they got it, they include some of this in the "Mad About You Collection" DVD.

I LOVE this show. One of my favorite sitcoms of all time. Why the heck aren't the rest of the seasons out on Amazon video? They need to release the rest, plus all seasons of Dharma and Greg - another of my absolute favorites. What's taking so long? Hmmmmmmmm, Amazon?

Great comedy series!
Verified purchase
This 3rd Season is just as funny as the first two. This was one of the first adult sitcoms and the writing still stands the test of time. The characters are colorful and the story evolves through a seemingly natural progression of a committed relationship until the last season when the couple finally have a baby girl. Parenthood or sometimes a series of guest stars seem to be the death knell of most modern sitcoms when writers seem to have exhausted all of their story ideas for the main characters. But, while their relationship is growing most of the episodes are well written as well as acted. Paul Reiser and Helen Hunt received many accolades and awards for their performances on the show and I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys witty sitcoms like 'Rules of Engagement'.

Finally!
Verified purchase
I just got my DVDs today, and I can't wait to start watching!

Season 3 picks up on much of the same real-life comedy that made the quirky Buchmans so much fun in Seasons 1 and 2. There are hilarious quibbles - like over the name of a much-beloved restaurant they once ate at in "Escape from New York," - run-ins with exes, a two-part reminiscence about the months prior to Paul and Jamie's wedding, the discovery that Murray's going to be a father, and much more.

Jamie's underachieving sister Lisa, Paul's cousin Ira and their friend Fran also reprise their supporting roles, adding to the mishaps and comedy.
