Some reveiwers I've seen on Amazon and other sites claim that the third season of the Titus Show doesn't compare to the first two seasons. I disagree whole heartedly. Season three stands alone, and doesn't need to be compared to the other two seasons. As far as it being less funny, I just don't see where thay get that from. This season is hilarious, and filled with the type of over the top, pushing the envelope funny that Christopher titus has always strived for. In fact there are many moments where this season comes across edgier that seasons 1 & 2. Whether your are a Titus fan or not, this collection will make you laugh until it hurts.
Titus - The (unfortunately) Final Season

"The third season of Titus brought some major laughs, as well as some daring, thought-provoking episodes. The laughs, as usual, came from an excellent comedy team, though I personally look forward to Stacy Keach's performance as the devilishly drunk womanizer Ken Titus, and his sadistic one-liners, though in one episode, the tables are turned on him by his equally sadistic mother, played by Phyllis Diller. Other daring episodes include "The Protector", where the guys find out that Erin's niece Amy was molested as a child and take steps to help her on the road to recovery.
Other daring episodes include "Tommy's Not Gay", where his father comes out of the closet, and "The Visit", where Titus' mother returns . . . well, I don't want to give everything away, in case you haven't seen it yourself.
I'm eager to add this set to my DVD collection, and plan to spend my down time watching Titus, instead of some trashy reality show. Do you prefer quality, or garbage?"

"While some may say that this season lacked, I disagree strongly. This was a great show, and was pulled off because of going over the edge, which I love. Better that it ended being hilarious and extreme, than getting dull and lifeless."
Capstone To A Perfect Series

"Season three of "Titus" is the darkest, but the best, of the three. The show was extraordinary and daring in the exploration of taboo and politically incorrect subjects, and while it was a shame it ended after only three seasons, the entire package when seen as a whole (especially when seen in order) is perfect. While I had always been disappointed about the cancellation, the bonus interview with Zack Ward (who is much smarter than "Dave") had the insight about the perfect whole, and I think he is right: the show ended on a high note, and will always be looked at positively in retrospect, unlike many shows that live on past their prime.
The third season deals with the darkest of all possible subjects, taken largely from Christopher Titus' own life. Most difficult is the subject of his mother's insanity and suicide, and coming to terms with the fears that it may be genetic. The episode "Tommy's Not Gay" is also extremely powerful (especially the black and white segments,) but for me the most difficult episode was the final episode "The Protector" which deals with child abuse. While I was never abused, I have seen the aftermath. It is a tragedy of the highest magnitude, and the manner in which "Titus" dealt with it in the final episode is both a cautionary tale to parents and other "protectors" and an indictment of abusers. I thought the resolution in that episode was absolutely perfect: seeing the principal finally allied for good with the ones he was charged to protect was a stunning moment of moral clarity. Heavy stuff, this, but important to see.
"Titus" is an extremely unconventional show, but a show with extreme merit. I can't recommend this series enough."
