Alluring, sexy and instantly addictive, Footballer?s Wives is as much about football as Dallas was about oil.« less
"Much like the who shot JR story line on Dallas, you would think that after the second season cliffhanger the biggest question surrounding the third season of Footballer's Wives would be who killed Jason Turner. You would be wrong. In fact, that question is answered on the very first episode of this season. Instead, the focus of the third season of Footballer's Wives is on the new recruits to Earls Park and their interactions with the old favorites--like Tanya Turner.
The new blood on the team includes:
Conrad and Amber Gates: Conrad is pretty much the David Beckham of the team. He's got the looks, the body, and the has-been wife... but not the kids. Amber's a former Bollywood actress who is having more than a little trouble getting any work. Conrad and Amber have an open marriage and Conrad makes it no secret that he plays the field. He may have met his match, though, when Tanya sets her sights on him.
Harvey Lawson and his girlfriend Shannon: Harvey is a seventeen year old kid who proves that age really doesn't matter on the pitch. His girlfriend Shannon is a bit country and not at all up to par with the other footballer's wives. She's also jealous, possessive, and can't hold her liquor, which makes for excellent television where this show is concerned.
Noah Alexander: Noah fills in when one of the show's key players is injured, but causes more than a little scandal when his personal life starts to overshadow his performance on the pitch. When he gets in the way of what Tanya wants, she puts him in his place quickly and let him know who's boss at Earls Park.
There is nothing that the writers of this show will not do. There isn't an American equivalent to the over-the-top campiness of this show, Desperate Housewives and Passions included. It's almost too much sometimes, but I just can't look away. If you've never seen Footballer's Wives cocaine addiction, hermaphrodite babies, and gambling addiction are just a few of the story lines you have to look forward to if you give this show a chance. If you enjoyed seasons 1 and 2, I can guarantee that you won't be disappointed with this season. The only problem is the length of time it takes the American DVDs to be released. They're already on season 5 in Britain, and it'll probably be another year or so before we get those on DVD."
Tanya Turner is back.....boy is she!

"With the addition of Amber Gates, Tanya Turner has a great new enemy. Amber's bi-sexual husband Conrad is messing with anybody who'll play and with any(thing) his wife get's her hands on...well, you just have to see that scene! Tanya's got her hands full with Frank...trying to off him and maintain her lifestyle...and the fun continues! Too bad we can't produce a mainstream TV show this awesome and gloriously wicked in the States. If you haven't watched this series, check it out soon... from the beginning if possible. Peace :o)"

"This season is great, along with every other season of Footballers Wives, I will buy this DVD for the show, but I wish we had some extra features. This Season in the UK includes outtakes and Hazel Baily's World of Football. Why is it that the US versions never have features, well except for the Slang Dictionary, but lets face it that is hardly a special feature. Anywho, the show is great so buy it for that! "

"It is ALL about Tanya. Notice any resemblance to Victoria Beckham? Annoyed that Amazon does not carry episode 4 & 5. Feel like I am left hanging."
Go Tanya Go!!!

"Great show thats a bit over the top but its entertaining as Hell! Its sad to see a lot of the more familiar actors get written off the show but the new storyline and characters adds so many more new twists and turns. I can hardly wait for season 4 but someone has written it will take 1 1/2 years for it to reach our retail market but BBC America is already selling Season 4 and 5 in Region 2 which doesn't make any sense to us Region 1 fans. Also, bootleg copies are already surfacing on Ebay with enticements like unrated. If you can't wait then go to the footballers wives website and totally spoil it for yourself."
