This is the third season of America's favorite dysfunctional family. This sitcom was spurned by conservatives because of twisted fun; subverting TV's traditional values, often controversial in its content and breaking all the rules other family sitcom hold. There are 22 episodes in three discs and some of the best episodes of the series are on these discs. In the episode, I'm Going to Sweatland - Peg thinks she might have seen Elvis at the mall and Marcy notices a pit stain shaped like him on Al's shirt. Elvis fans come flocking around just to see it and Bud and Kelly quickly try cash on it. In Poke High (The Red Grange Story) - A High School boy dating Kelly is getting to break Al's football record at Polk High, and Al gets worried that his football record may be broken. In the episode, The Gypsy Cried - Al, Peggy, and Steve have go to a business conference with Marcy because a psychic convinced her that she has bad luck and their luck is good. Eatin' Out, Married ... with Prom Queen and Here's Lookin' at You, Kid, are some of the funniest episodes. I highly recommend this set if you are a fan of this show; because it is worth every penny.

I Remember Married with Children in the 80's it was My favorite Program. To find out I could buy the DVD made me Happy. It was just as Funny as the First Time I will watch this till the cows come home. if you have never seen the series or you were too Young to remember it . Then Buy the DVDS OR The Complete Series it is the funniest Comedy to come out of the USA.

I agree with the previous reviewer that the series is not the same without the "Love and Marriage" theme tune, the reason for this not being is as follows....

"The DVD box sets from Season 3 onward do not feature the original "Love and Marriage" theme song in the opening sequence. This was done because Sony was unable to obtain the rights to the theme song. It is highly unlikely that the theme song will return in any yet to be released DVD box set." This is according to wikipedia.

That being said I am so glad Al is back, i loved the series first time around and cannot wait till season 4 is released at the end of the month. Please buy the series for the excellent comedy and try to ignore the dreadful theme tune.

Loved the series the first time I saw it. Ed O'Neill steals the show in Modern Families and watching this you can see why. Very Funny!

This is one of the best shows I have ever seen and used to watch it growing up.
The one thing that is annoying is the fact that Sony and the Sinatra family could not come to an aggrement to have the original love and marriage theme tune included. Apart from this a brilliant season and worth every penny.
HURRY UP SONY AND RELEASE ALL THE SEASON's IN REGION 2 FOR UK & IRELAND.

The third year of classic sitcom married with children comes to region two dvd at last.

Featuring the exploits of Chicago based family the Bundys. Everyman Al scored four touchdowns in a single game of football at college, and seemed destined for greatness. But that didn't happen. Working a minimum wage job selling ladies shoes. Married to lazy chat show and bon bon loving Peggy. Father to brainless bimbo daughter peggy and lusty virgin son Bud, they live a somewhat miserable existence. Their lives constatly clashing with that of their straight laced and career minded neighbours steve and marcy rhodes.

The third season contintues the show's steady move away from more conventional sitcom territory and into sharper areas as the writing plays up the lifestyle of the bundys to the full. The occasional surreal element and thinking animals of later years is yet to come. But here we have twenty episodes of very sharp writing providing often laugh a minute character based comedy, spread across three discs.
Each episode runs roughly twenty two to twenty five minutes in total.

Languages and subtitles on the dvd:

Languages: English

Subtitles: Dutch English French German.

Rights issues mean that the song love and marriage, used as the theme tune on the tv show, has had to be replaced by a different piece of music.

This is the region one dvd release converted straight over to a region two and since the former came out a few years back it hasnt been updated at all. Thus the movie and dvd trailers on disc one that purport to be for new releases are now rather out of date. The reference on the box to a lost episode refers to one called I'll see you in court that never got repeated in america for a long time as the network didn't like some - rather mild - sexual references in it.

And the box also promises ten easter eggs spread across the dvds featuring interviews with the cast. If you can't find those get season one and you'll find all these as part of a cast reunion documentary that was on there.

But even so, twenty two episodes of a classic comedy is enough to make this worth five stars.
