Another serving of our favorite butler

"Shout Factory! serves up yet another serving of our favorite butler Mr Belvedere, with Mr Belvedere Season Three. The eagerly awaited set doesn't disappoint. The 22 episodes bring us yet another batch of laughter and tears in the Owens household, all with Mr Belvedere ending the day with his insightful and funny journal entries.
The episodes are all the original network episodes, all running over 23 minutes in length. All the music featured in the episodes is included as well. Shout! did a great job in ensuring that we get to see Mr Belvedere the way we remember him during his network run. The episodes themselves look clear and vivid without any audio problems either. The original opening and closing credits are included as well. There were quite a few songs sang and played in the episodes and Shout! did great work in ensuring that they didn't get edited for this DVD. The fans appreciate it! Robert Goulet even guest stars and sings a few songs. Other guest stars this season include Doris Roberts (Every Loves Raymond), Susan Anton, Dr Joyce Brothers, Bubba Smith and Tony Danza.
Season three continues to feature great episodes that don't feel dated even though this is an 80's sitcom. Bonus features include commentary on 6 episodes with cast emembers Ilene Graff, Rob Stone, Tracy Wells and Brice Beckham. Unfortunatey Bob Uecker wasn't available but at least this time Tracy Wells was able to participate. Besides, there's always next season. The commentary tracks are fantastic, as you join the cast as they laugh and revisit Mr Belvedere. They talk about the goings on on stage and back stage on the set, their memories of working on the show, how much of an impact the show had on the fans and even touch on an urban legend regarding Rob Stone. You learn a lot from the commentaries and feel as though you are watching the show with the cast as they revisit Mr Belvedere. The commentaries are on the following episodes: Debut (aka Close Call, Kevin's Date, Pills, The Crush, The Competition and Kevin's Older Woman.
Any fan of Mr Belvedere is surely going to want this set. The show continues to hold up well in its third season. Even if you have never seen the show and don't have the first seasons you can still enjoy a great sitcom with clever dialogue, funny lines and some genuine moments of family problems (as Ilene Graff says all solved in half an hour of course). Be sure to buy this set and we can hope Shout! Factory brings us season four in as quickly an amount of time as possible. Thanks again Shout! for doing such a great job on such a great show!"
Season 4 is Coming... BUT!!

"I do appreciate Shout! Factory taking otherwise forgotten TV and releasing it on dvd. Its a nice trip down nostalgia lane. But for some reason, retailers will not be carrying the remaining seasons (4-6) in stores. We are lucky though that Shout! Factory is releasing season 4 on their website this January for fans of the show that want to continue their collection. Great idea! I applaud them. Unlike other producers of DVD's who just stop after one or two seasons(Growing Pains, Who's the Boss), we finally get someone that has the customers in mind. And for those a fan of My Two Dads, they will also be doing the same thing. So I urge everyone to check out their website and purchase these items to encourage the continuation of this series and hopefully get other companies to follow in their footsteps that have otherwise given up on their product liceances."
