"Definitely the turning point of the show where Ellen Degeneres defined both her character Ellen Morgan and her comic capabilities - ranging from physical, visual to linguistic comedy......add to that an eclectic pot pourri of supporting cast....from the sexually liberated Paige to the ditsy Lois, Ellen's mother whose life-dream is to find Ellen the perfect husband, this season really does come up trumps.
Season 3 also introduces the amazing Jeremy Piven as Ellen's cousin Spence, and bids farewell to Arye Gross's Adam (who really wasn't that funny).
There are too many comic moments to note, but some classics are Ellen and Lois trying to bond as mother and daughter, with disastrous results, those spoof introductions (my favourite being where they finally have an opening sequence.....the theme tune is hilarious alone) and the girls' night in where Ellen freezes her bra and chicken niblets.
I can't wait to finally have this series on DVD and anxiously await the remaining Series. Hope they come out quicker than the year between Season 2 & 3.
Degeneres proves here why she is one of America's foremost comedians - period. So pleased to have met her too in NYC.....now this is what comedy and good television are all about!"
Ellen is more Herself Now

"I never got to watch Ellen's show when it was actually on TV because I was living overseas and couldn't get it there. I'm still living in Europe, but now w/DVD's I can catch up (hello - can we PLEASE have seasons 4 & 5 already??!!! I can't take the waiting!!!!). I have, however, seen Ellen's current talk show ("The Ellen DeGeneres Show" on NBC), and feel that in Season 3 of her series (having gotten to know her quite a bit through her current daytime show), she is being more herself - still in Ellen Morgan character - but the writing for Season 3 is largely based on her own convictions and views which are constantly brought up on her talk show, where she is completely being herself and not pretending to be any sort of character. Aside of transparent honesty in the script-writing, the show is as funny as ever, if not funnier in many instances, and we also see the first hints of transition (sometimes not very subtle hints), where Ellen is beginning to move Ellen Morgan's character into being more open about her sexuality (not wanting to wear dresses, sporting a shorter hairdo, never having a love interest during the entire season except for REALLY wanting a certain new best friend, who just happens to be a woman, etc....). A must for die-hard Ellen fans, but everyone must get this - you will roll on the floor laughing!!! Get It!!!"
Wow! Amazing Season.

"This Season 3 Set of Ellen is incredible. It's like some magic thing happened at this point when compared to the first two seasons. The writing, the pacing, the major guest stars, and the chemistry between the actors is all genius. These shows have me uncontrollably laughing out loud. There are so many priceless episodes in this set including the hilarious bachelorette party that Ellen and Audrey throw for Paige. I watched that particular episode late at night and I was laughing so hard I thought I was going to wake up the neighbors. Other highlights in this season include Ellen's mammogram, the arrival of cousin Spence, her dinner party with Martha Stewart, and Paige's wedding.
Ellen DeGeneres, Clea Lewis, Joely Fisher, David Anthony Higgins, and Jeremy Piven give performances that rival the very best in TV. Clea Lewis certainly hit a new high in this season. She's so good. She keeps you smiling and in stitches.
To make this set even better, the picture quality is a major improvement over the first 2 Season sets. It looks and sounds great. This Season 3 set was worth every cent. I can't wait for Season 4. Thank you Ellen and A&E!!"

"In my opinion... ELLEN SEASON THREE was by far the best season. The writing on the show's third season was so witty, quick and intellegent! Not to say the others aren't, but I do believe this was probably the show's highest point. Can't wait to get it!"
