"I'm assuming people looking at this already know whether or not they like the show, if you don't know or haven't seen it yet it's not hard to catch the episodes playing almost round the clock in syndication on TLC. The third season is still the lovable Gosselin family, the episodes are the finest of the series so far as it showed us the families real daily lives around the home more than recent episodes but the children were older and more mature than earlier seasons. This set also has the especially enjoyable episodes that focused on individual time between Jon & Kate with each individual child on their own special day. Episodes included in this 4 disc set are:
Trip To The Zoo
Day In The Life
Twins Turn 7!
Kate Hires A Nanny
Potty Training the Boys

Plus Special Features: Behind the Scenes of Jon & Kate Plus 8 (which originally aired as an episode).
Viewer FAQ (Which originally aired as an episode)
Music Video: A Hug & A Kiss (Which was promoted and aired once on television)
All episodes this season are shot and shown in 16:9 Anamorphic Widescreen Aspect Ratio. Audio is Dolby Digital 2.0. There Are English Subtitles, the set is rated G and has a running time of approx. 698 minutes.
This season is in my opinion the best Jon & Kate has to offer. I haven't enjoyed recent episodes as much as these ones, possibly because they've been away from home alot doing too many out of the ordinary things that I can't relate to when I always found that sense of home to be the heart of the series. Hopefully now that they've settled into their new house the show will return more to the format I enjoyed. Though the hype the show has received and the affect it seems to have had (in my opinion) on the family will never allow it to be as great as it was in this third season it is still and probably will always be an enjoyable family series for most and they're who I recommend this to.
A Little Misleading.

"There's nothing wrong with the quality of these DVDs, they feature the same episodes we know and love, however, there are some things that could have been improved. Firstly, there is no "play all" option, which would have been a nice feature. Also, when watching on a computer you can't skip and reverse by clicking on the progress bar, you actually have to fast forward and rewind using the extremely slow arrows. This makes finding specific scenes or moments in the episode more difficult than it needs to be. I've tried doing this in several programs and on more than one computer, but I apologize if this is something that works for others.
Especially troubling is the fact that regularly aired episodes are listed as 'Special Features'. These are listed on the box as "Behind the Scenes" and "Viewer Faq", which makes one think these are things we haven't seen before. If it's an episode that is played regularly, it's not a Special Feature. The music video featured on the DVD was also shown on TV. This wouldn't have deterred me from purchasing these DVDs, but I find the misadvertising annoying.
If you love this show, these DVDs are still great!"

"I now own all 3 available seasons of the Jon and Kate Plus Ei8ht series. I love them all. As usual, Kate is her nasty self. Some of the antics the kids pull are unbelievable but funny. I watch young children and so have to just laugh when I watch these guys - especially the younger 6.
