Not bad, not great

"I really like Tripping the Rift; I have the first two seasons on DVD. Then I purchased the movie, which I was very disappointed with, so I was hoping that season three would bring me back to the fold. Unfortunately, not so much. 3 or 4 of the episodes are straight from the movie (or the movie is straight from 3 or 4 episodes depending how you look at it), so the claims of "13 ALL-NEW EPISODES" on the DVD cover doesn't ring true.
I also don't understand how they came up with the censoring of foul language. In one episode ("Raiders of the Lost Crock of $%?&*!"), they bleeped the word b*****d (but left enough in that you could tell what it was) and a couple of minutes later the word was said again but not bleeped. It seems to be a little random. I don't get why they can't put out a "grown-up" version of Tripping the Rift (i.e. rated 18 or even 16). I can handle the swearing, the crude jokes, even a little CGI nudity (the censored banners in the Raiders episode mentioned above).
There are no extras with this DVD set. No outtakes, no trailers, nothing. It really seemed like it was put together quickly and released. If I hadn't seen the movie, I probably would rate this season a bit higher. I feel the movie has damaged the franchise somewhat. Who knows if there will be a fourth season. If there is, I hope they realise there are grown ups out there who watch "Tripping the Rift" and we're OK with adult content in our favourite animated shows."

"If you are planning to buy Tripping the Rift:the Movie, don't bother. They cut it up and made it into individual episodes for this disc. The graphics for the character six seem to have gone down a notch. And Jenny McCarthy sounded like she just didn't care about how dull her voice sounds."

"You need to be a fan to appreciate this edition, but if you are, it is really good. They do some wonderful episodes based on famous movies and write around them with the "Tripp" crew involved. Stephen Root and Maurice LaMarche, are masters of voice overs. All of the voicing is exceptional except for the sexlessness of Jenny McCarthy. Am I wrong or did she also voice HAL 9000? Since this is a DVD only release, I was surprised by the "DE-JIGGLING" of six and the language censorship. The only other things missing are Tom Kenny and Billy West. But I have to say, I popped in the DVD, and really enjoyed sitting through these episodes. I would really like to see additional filler in the future of the actors doing their voices. Seth Macfarland is doing it now, as well as Simpsons actors. The worry that seeing the actor actually doing the voice will spoil the illusion, is baloney. It is really quite entertaining to see the voice overs in action. But getting back to this edition. . get it."
Less Costumes for Six

"This season is as funny and innovative as the rest. There's even black and white footage for contrast, in the Skankenstein episode.
The only thing I find disappointing about this season is that Six seems to have fewer bikini and nude scenes."
