I am really enjoying this season but I am on disc 5 and it has stopped working! The second disc falls out of the case as it broke the day I got it. This disc clearly has scratches and is at a dramatic time of the series!! Not impressed Amazon!

Season Three of the amazing family-drama Brothers and Sisters manages to drop on the quality of programming seen in it's first two seasons; but it certainly remains one of the finest programmes on television and this box set makes for excellent viewing.

It remains to be excellent viewing- the plotlines in this season are as complex and twisting as in the show's first two seasons, and the humour is mixed perfectly with the heartache as the show manages to bring viewings from tears to laughter in every episode, and the chaos of the Walker family keeps me coming back for more and more- I never tire of this programme, and although I didn't love it as much as Seasons One and Two; I still did love it!

I think this seasons big disappointment; or the key item which lets it down, is the character Robert, who is beyond amazing in the debut seasons- strong, powerful, warm, loving and funny- this season he becomes cold and distant, which detracts from the enjoyment of this season- although this character development is essential to the plotlines of this- and future seasons.

Away from Robert, the relationships and characters are as great as ever- in particular Kevin and Scotty are truly wonderful viewing, and Justin and Rebecca become firm favourites as the most adorable couple on television. The relationship between Nora and Holly remains excellently executed, and whilst Sarah's storyline is not central to the development of the season, the character develops strongly during this season and becomes more and more wonderful throughout and remains to be a firm favourite of mine. Whilst I'm not a big fan of the character, Balthazar Getty does a fantastic job playing Tommy this season, and it's his story which drives this season from start to finish.

I loved this series and the story lines are just excellent Sally Fields is such an amazing actress and deals with all family situations as they arise. Overall throughly enjoyed this series as much as the other two but I would agree with other reviews that this one is lacking something and possibly isn't as good as the first two. I throughly enjoy seeing all the characters developing and how they deal with situations eg. Robert's heart attack. Its shows a strong family unit that comes together in these situations.

On another note though I have had a few problems with this boxset, I ordered the boxset received it but had trouble viewing disc 5. I tried it out on 2 DVD players but sadly neither worked. Has anyone else had these problems? Anyway I ordered a replacement and had the same problem, yes you would think it might be the DVD player but sadly no it was the disc as another DVD player played it. Rather frustrating and quite off putting, I am a loyal customer to Amazon but the quality of the disc's in this boxset are not the best. Other than that I would definitely recommend viewing this series.

After two phenomenal previous series it was always going to be difficult for the script writers to come up with fresh and entertaining story lines. This third season was still very good viewing but perhaps lacked the intensity of the past two.

Some story lines lacked depth that left you rooted to your seat, but taking nothing away from the actors and actresses they were all on top form as ever. A new character arrives on the scene and I was most definitely not a fan of the performance but it must have been coming into the story after the rest of the cast have known one another for so long.

Nora Walker plays the pivotal role in this series again and has some wonderful scenes with her offspring. Justin is supposedly maturing into a clean man, but can it last? Kitty and Robert are going through the rigmaroll of political life again. Sarah is now a single Mum seeking a bit of fun back into her life, whilst finding a job. Kevin is enjoyed married life to Scotty, and Tommy is finding it difficult to fill his Father's shows. The smaller roles of Holly, Saul and Rebecca are all brilliantly interlinked into the story.

The series manages to ride over the bumps and it comes to a pleasing conclusion (although a fourth series is being filmed at the moment). It is hard to see where else the Walker family can go to, but I'm sure the scriptwriters will have a whale of a time thinking of new, weird and wonderful situations to put the Walker family into.

Although this series is nothing like as impressive as the previous two it still manages to make you crave the next episode time and again. If you enjoyed the first and secondd season this is a must buy. If you haven't seen it buy the first one because it is fantastic.

I got Season 3 for Christmas, and over a period of weekends I watched it back to back (again) and was completely drawn in. Like all the rest tears and laughter are a plenty!!

The drama and realism of this series is pure brilliance. As previous reviewers have already said, it leaves you craving the next episode each time...

Again Sally Field is a total gem! All the cast are amazing - there isn't one bad thing about to say. It gets more addictive each time, and I think this is because you end up feeling like you know each character on a personal level. It almost makes you want to be a 'Walker'!

I highly recommend this to everyone willing to listen to me ... I never want Brothers and Sisters to end, ever!!!!!!
