4.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic!, 8 Mar 2006
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: That '70s Show: Season 3 [DVD] (DVD)
If you're lucky enough to own seasons 1 and 2 of this fantastic show then you'll know how hilarious it is and won't need much encouragement to purchase season 3.
If you're new to the show, then I highly recommend it - it has everything you'd want from a sitcom: great one-liners, amusing situations, love triangles, and the reassuring presence of a group of 6 close mates who do everything together. It's like Friends, but for a sillier and perhaps slightly younger audience. It does, however, have possibly even more laughs than Friends, and just as high a feel-good factor - it's the kind of show that makes you grin all the way through and you only realise at the end how much you've been smiling. For more info on the characters, read my review for season 1.
There are a couple of weak episodes in season 3 - most notably the 'Too old to trick and treat, too young to die' episode which rips off Hitchcock films but tries too hard to be funny and ends up failing - but mostly the quality is as high (or almost as high) as the first two seasons.
The DVD boxset for this season is certainly an improvement on seasons 1 and 2, however, because of the extra special features. The 'promo' or Tv advert/trailer for every episode is included, and almost every episode includes an optional 1 or 2 minute introduction from a cast member such as Mila Kunis (Jackie), Danny Masterson (Hyde), Debra Jo Rupp (Kitty), Wilmer Valderama (Fez) or Kurtwood Smith (Red). These introductions range from a brief summary of the episode to a quite long anecdote about amusing incidents that occurred during the filming, and are definitely worth watching.
In addition, there are some episode commentaries, although a word of warning - these include spoilers! My advice is not to listen to them until you've watched the entire series unless you're happy to know what happens with the different relationships later in the season. I was really annoyed when certain things were revealed in a commentary on the first disc that I just didn't want to know.
All in all then it's a fantastic show and the special features really makes the fans feel like some effort has been put into the boxset. Buy it, you'll laugh and laugh :). Can't wait for season 4!
