From Amazon.co.uk

With this third season, Frasier scored an impressive hat trick, winning its third successive Emmy for Outstanding Comedy Series. You don't need too much analysis to get to the bottom of this unprecedented success. The series was a primetime oasis of wit and sophistication, with welcome forays into farce that pricked Frasier's bubble of pomposity. His priceless reactions to the assaults on his dignity are worthy of Jack Benny. Frasier (Kelsey Grammer) can be infuriating, as in "The Focus Group," in which he is obsessed with knowing why a lone focus group participant (guest star Tony Shalhoub) doesn't like him. But he is also endearing in his delusional view of himself as, in the words of one mocking bystander, a "man of the people." Frasier meets his match in new station owner Kate Costas (Oscar-winner Mercedes Ruehl). Their combative relationship turns to lust over the course of the first 10 episodes.

But the season's most pivotal story arc is the separation of Niles (David Hyde Pierce) and Maris. "Moon Dance," which marked Grammer's directorial debut, is a series benchmark, as a crestfallen Niles tangos with his unrequited love, Daphne (Jane Leeves), at a high society ball. Not that the Crane family still doesn't have issues to work out. Frasier cannot abide being beaten at chess by Martin (John Mahoney) in "Chess Pains." Frasier and Niles ill-advisedly go into joint practice in "Shrink Rap," and find themselves on the opposite sides of a sanity hearing in "Crane vs. Crane." Lilith is sorely missed, but in this season's blast-from-the-past episode, Shelley Long returns in "The Show Where Diane Comes Back." It is a joy to see Cheers resurrected, if only in Diane's self-absorbed new play, which Frasier agrees to back. And any episode with Frasier's amoral agent Bebe (Harriet Sansom Harris) is must-see television. Frasier's humor was character-based, rather than topical, giving it a longer shelf life. For those who lament the end of one of television's gold standard series, this box set will be excellent therapy. --Donald Liebenson

Product Description

All 24 episodes from the third series of the sitcom about a middle-aged Seattle psychiatrist beset by problems largely of his own making. In 'She's the Boss', Frasier (Kelsey Grammer) falls out with Kate (Mercedes Ruehl), the new station manager. 'Shrink Rap' has Frasier and Niles (David Hyde Pierce) deciding to work together - with disastrous results. 'Martin Does It His Way' sees Frasier discover a half-finished song written by his dad (John Mahoney). 'Leapin' Lizards' finds Frasier turning the tables on Bulldog (Dan Butler) and playing a practical joke all of his own. 'Kisses Sweeter Than Wine' has Daphne (Jane Leeves) get very excited about the man from the floor polishing service. 'Sleeping With the Enemy' sees Frasier attempt to represent the staff in a pay dispute. 'The Adventures of Bad Boy and Dirty Girl' finds Frasier and Kate taking their relationship onto the airwaves. In 'The Last Time I Saw Maris', Niles is thrown out of the house by his wife. 'Frasier Grinch' has Frasier embark on some last-minute Christmas shopping. 'It's Hard to Say Goodbye If You Won't Leave' sees Frasier and Kate spend the night in an airport lounge when she announces that she's leaving for Chicago. 'The Friend' finds Frasier looking for a new friend. 'Come Lie With Me' has everyone concerned that Daphne might leave the Crane household. 'Moon Dance' sees Daphne and Niles dance the tango together - but does it mean as much to her as it does to him? 'The Show Where Diane Comes Back' finds Frasier agreeing to finance the Seattle production of his ex-fiancee's (Shelley Long) play about a bunch of losers in a bar. 'A Word to the Wiseguy' has the Crane brothers get involved with a shady character. 'Look Before You Leap' sees Frasier getting ready to sing an operatic aria in public. 'High Crane Drifter' finds Frasier involved in a cafe dispute. 'Chess Pains' has Frasier suffer a chess beating at the hands of his father. 'Crane vs Crane' sees the Crane brothers back opposing sides in a court case. 'Police Story' finds Frasier falling for a policewoman. In 'Where There's Smoke There's Fired', Frasier must help his agent Bebe (Harriet Sansom Harris) give up smoking. 'Frasier Loves Roz' has Roz (Peri Gilpin) mistakenly believe that Frasier is declaring romantic intentions towards her. 'The Focus Group' sees Frasier get uptight when a focus group member declares his show less than perfect. And finally, in 'You Can Never Go Home Again', Frasier remembers the day he first came to Seattle.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderfully written 7 Aug 2005
Format:DVD
Having caught and enjoyed the occational Frasier episode on TV earlier, I bought the Season 3 Set hoping it could confirm its place in the upper division of sit-coms. Having watched the entire collection probably three times now, I hold this show as my favorite and this season my preference.
As mentioned in previous reviews, the genious of the series lies in the absolutely brilliant writing job behind it. It's packed with witty puns, intelligent lines and clever references. I deeply enjoy the recurring themes and conflicts of the show, like Maris in all her absurdity, the two brothers' neverending rivalry and jealousy, and of course Niles' hopeless infatuation with Daphne. They serve well to tie the episodes and even seasons together, allowing us viewers to feel somehow connected to the characters and sad for Niles and Frasier every time they fly high only to be shot down (which happens, well, all the time).
The acting is top notch - David Hyde Pierce's brilliant timing and wonderfully theatrical body language cracks me up every time, and Kelsey Grammer and Jane Leeves always deliver awesome performances.
As any other 20-something episode set, this season has its slower points ("Chess Pains" comes to mind) but also stunning highlights that I enjoy over and over, like "The last time I saw Maris", "Moon Dance" and "Crane vs. Crane".
All in all I can only give this set my best recommendations for all those who enjoy intelligent comedy and good acting.

5.0 out of 5 stars That little bit extra 1 Mar 2005
Format:DVD
Having just trawled through the first 3 seasons of Frasier, I would have to say that it would be a nightmare trying to decide which is the best.They seem to run in a sort of continuum of excellence at this stage, with only a couple of duff entries (I thought 'Chess Pains' in this instance, although it seems to be regarded as something of a classic) All the essential ingredients are intact in Season 3: elegant wordplay, sublimely structured farce, bittersweet Romance. And the superb casting, right down to characters who walk in on one scene and have a comic life of their own. What would seem to make this season somewhat different to the first two is the actual look of the show: there seems to be a predominance of tans and beiges in the design and also that little bit more sharpness in dress and hairstyle (seriously! - check out Frasier's haircut compared to the first two seasons) that give an already unusually classy show that bit extra. The only regret I would express is that Eddie is used somewhat less than previously. This was a show so good that even the dog could act.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic! 26 Nov 2007
Format:DVD
If you liked 1-2 you will love 3 - scripts as funny and sharp as ever - acting faultless. Not sure how anyone can rate the collection as 1*, if you like Frasier it's great - if you don't why buy it?

5.0 out of 5 stars More brilliance 1 Dec 2007
By fps
Format:DVD
Frasier, at this point, and through the first 7 seasons, is the most perfectly scripted sitcom ever. It is theatrical and witty, with a great cast. Funny as hell. I'd tell you to ignore the 1 star reviewer's comments on the show, but he doesn't actually mention it...

5.0 out of 5 stars Good mental health! 25 Mar 2008
By KN VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
This is the first Frasier season that I bought on DVD and it was worth every penny. These are 24 episodes of situation comedy that just doesn't get better (unless you count some of the other seasons).

The series begins with a new, female, station manager at the KACL radio station (She's The Boss). She also happens to be more than a match for Frasier in sharp-wittedness. This brings Frasier down to Earth and leads to some awkward and funny moments for Frasier (Sleeping with the Enemy & The Adventures of Bad Boy and Dirty Girl).

Niles' story also develops significantly during this season. His marriage to the never-seen Maris is now well and truly on the rocks (The Last Time I saw Maris) and his infatuation with Daphne reaches new levels (Moon Dance). Bebe Glazer makes another welcome appearance as the unscrupulous and manipulative agent from hell (Where There's Smoke, There's Fired). As tradition we also get a re-union with a "Cheers" character, with Diane Chambers paying Frasier a visit.

The only negative comment I can make is that there are hardly any extras on this DVD box-set. I personally wasn't disappointed by this but others may feel differently.

After finishing this series (it took only a week) I was left with the difficult choice of watching earlier or later seasons; I did both!

5.0 out of 5 stars Frasier has not left the building! 6 Sep 2009
Format:DVD
Series three keeps up the excellent standards of series one and two. The writing is simply superb as are the performances. Can they keep this up in later series? (We are latecomers to Frasier, having never before seen the tv series). Whatever the stresses of the day, frasier is guaranteed to make you laugh and forget your problems.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cooking with Gas 22 April 2008
By Mr. Ross Maynard VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
Frasier series Two was great but series Three lifts the bar further. It really is matchless comedy. The scripts are razor sharp and the timing superb. In series two you begin to notice David Hyde-Pearce's brilliance as Niles; that trend continues in series three. More than any other actor in the series he really lifts the episodes he is in. Dare I say that the best Frasier episodes are the ones where Niles has a leading role ? Certainly "Moon Dance" in this set is a strong contender for best ever episode. A great great series of Frasier.
