More fun, more flames, more flameouts: more Gilmore. This Deluxe 6-Disc Set contains all 22 third-year episodes (plus bonus features) of The Gilmore Girls, the hit series known for its witty, rapid-fire dialogue and poignant, suds-free storylines. For mother and daughter Lorelai and Rory Gilmore, it's a year of change. Much of it is expected, like Rory's graduation from Chilton and the anxiety of waiting for college acceptance letters. But much of it is not. Rory starts the year with two boyfriends (that may be two too many). Lorelai rekindles the flame with Max (maybe). Lane meets Mr. Right (at last). Sookie gets a surprise (a good one). And so does the Independence Inn (not such a good one). The girls are waiting (get watching!).=20
Senior year meant some surprising changes for the Gilmore girls, as both Lorelai (Lauren Graham) and Rory (Alexis Bledel) wrestled with their pasts in order to figure out what the heck they were going to do with their futures. In the wake of finding out that her relationship with Rory's dad was not to be rekindled, Lorelai endured a variety of suitors as she attempted to keep her life on an evil keel--not easy when her former flame's girlfriend was pregnant (and clueless), her former fiancé shows up unexpectedly, and her beloved inn suffers some unforeseen damage. If it was minor drama for Lorelai, it was full-fledged soap opera for Rory, who broke up with longtime boyfriend Dean (Jared Padalecki) in the wake of her attraction to the moody bad-boy Jess (Milo Ventimiglia), only to find her new relationship fraught with difficulties. Add to that the pressure of getting into college (Harvard or Yale?) and stressful senior class politics at the snooty Chilton private school, and it's a wonder she still had time to crack wise at breakneck speed with her mom and the rest of Stars Hollow.
The center of the third season of Gilmore Girls was the Rory-Dean-Jess triangle, which played out with surprising sensitivity and not a bit of sadness; it all came to a head in the episode "They Shoot Gilmores, Don't They?" in which Rory and Lorelai's quest to win a dance marathon ends in tears and break-ups. The year's teen drama did have a tendency to put the adults on the back burner, but the luminous Graham made the most of her character's dilemmas, whether gauging her growing attraction to diner owner Luke (Scott Patterson) or wrestling with her parents' continuous meddling. While it is hard to pinpoint a specific compelling story arc for this season, that doesn't mean it wasn't filled with the charm, smarts, and rapid-fire dialogue that made Gilmore Girls one of the brightest shows on television. Stellar supporting turns from Liza Weil as Paris, Rory's friend and nemesis by turns, and a pre-O.C. Adam Brody, as a band member who falls for Rory's best friend Lane (Keiko Agena), also punctuated the drama of the season with great comedy. --Mark Englehart

Un mot sur la série elle-même : Gilmore Girls est l'une des meilleures séries produite par la télévision américaine ces dernières années (à égalité avec Veronica Mars). A voir et à revoir.
What defines this third season for Lorelai and Rory are not the men (or boys) in their lives but rather their goals of realizing their dreams. For Lorelai this means opening up her own inn with Sookie. That dream gets put on the front burner when a fire damages the Independence Inn ("A Tale of Poes and Fire"), but buying the Dragonfly Inn (the house from "The Waltons" if you know your television history) proves to be a problem ("Say Goodnight, Gracie"). When Lorelai insists on spending the money she got from her father on her daughter's education at Yale it is Rory who has to cut her own deal with Richard and Emily so that her mother can get her dream too ("Those Are Strings, Pinocchio"). It is supposedly a "win-win-win" situation, but that remains to be seen.Read more ›
The packaging, however, is cheap! The first two seasons were delivered in a heavy case, nicely presented, a real keepsake. This third season was noticeable thinner in appearance from the outside. When the purchaser opens the package up, they will notice that the DVDs are set into thin, plastic sheets that are easily breakable (in fact, I returned my first package because it arrived broken). The spine of the plastic sheets is held together with clear plastic tape? Only the last plastic sheet is even attached to the cardboard frame. For $50+ purchasing, I am really disappointed that the production company cheaped out in the third season. After establishing such a beautiful set for the first two seasons, I can only assume that they cut back to save costs -- ripping off the fans in the process.
Richard, Lorelais father, gives Lorelai money that he invested in her name when she was born. With this money, she pays back her parents for the Chilton loan, thus upsetting Emily dearly. Emily and Lorelai don't talk for a while, and Lorelai plans on using the left over money to invest in the Inn with Sookie. However the financial aid doesn't come through for Rorys college which puts the Inn plans on hold for a while. In the mean time, Rory finds out and takes it upon herself to go to her grandparents to ask for a loan, in order to ensure that Lor can open her own inn.
The last episode is the graduation and then the Gilmore Girls are off to backpack around Europe!
Anyway,back to my review. I love this season as the previous. I still can't believe they haven't added a commentary or some sort for some episodes like some other movies or series. I'm a little bit disappointed.
A nice bonus/extras on the actors comments on their childhood,short but cute.
I like the part where Kirk shows some dance moves.
One addition I like to see in the future's dvds besides the commentary from the actors and director is adding the Stars Hollow map where the viewer can have a virtual visit to this beloved town.
I love Gilmore Girls and I know when the 4th season comes out,I'll be first in line to get them.
