thirtysomething was more than a snapshot of the late 80s /early 90s it was a cultural phenomenon.
By Season Three, the show about the inner workings of a group of close friends and married couples had reached full maturity as a series. The relationships and conflicts existed on a completely realised level that allowed the viewer to associate, to new heights, with what was happening on their TV. Whether it was Michael and Hope trying to keep their fire lit, Gary evolving into fatherhood, Melissa s ongoing struggles with the opposite sex, Ellyn s wandering moral judgment, or a transformed Elliot caring for his cancer-stricken wife Nancy (an Emmy®-winning performance by Patricia Wettig) the lives of these characters had come a long way in just a couple of seasons, much like the progression of real life... thirtysomething life.
The Complete Third Season features all 24 episodes with select in-depth commentaries from the creators, cast and crew.

I was twentysomething when it was broadcast, and while my life could not have been less like those of the characters, I enjoyed it. As a fortysomething(due to the long delay in this series coming out on DVD) I still enjoy it. Strong writing, characters, and acting ensure that this does not feel dated( though it is amusing to relive the fashions of the time and see how big the cell phones were).
I can't comment on the extras- I rarely ever watch/listen to them- I prefer to let the work speak for itself. The quality of the video and audio were just fine on my non- HD tv. The booklet is worth looking at only for the hilariously banal one line descriptions of the episodes.
I was surprised by how much of this show seemed familiar after all this time- more stuck in my memory than I would have guessed, but I related to it somewhat differently than when I was younger. This is a quality tv show that has stood the test of time - if you liked it then, rewatch it now, and if you dismissed it as yuppies whining back then, give it another try.
Now can we get China Beach on DVD?
I have been a Prime Member for years and am very upset by this. Other suggestions are also now charging.
Perhaps Prime will no longer be worth it. Buying the Entire Season is a poor option but, less expensive than each episode. Shame !!
