Collectible 6-DVD Set Packed with All 24 Memorable
Episodes and Special Bonus Features

thirtysomething was more than a snapshot of the late '80s/early '90s - it was a cultural phenomenon. By Season Three, the show about the inner workings of a group of close friends and married couples had reached full maturity as a series. The relationships and conflicts existed on a completely realized level, that allowed the viewer to associate, to new heights, with what was happening on their TV. Whether it was Michael and Hope trying to keep their fire lit, Gary evolving into fatherhood, Melissa's ongoing struggles with the opposite sex, Ellyn's wandering moral judgment, or a transformed Elliot caring for his cancer-stricken wife Nancy (an Emmy-winning performance by Patricia Wettig) - the lives of these characters had come a long way in just a couple of seasons, much like the progression of real life...thirtysomething life.

thirtysomething: The Complete Third Season DVD features all 24 episodes mastered from new high-definition transfers with select in-depth commentaries from creators, cast and crew. SRP: $59.97. Special Features:
  • New Introduction by Edward Zwick and Marshall Herskovitz
  • Commentaries by Edward Zwick, Marshall Herskovitz, writer Liberty Godshall, Peter Horton, Patricia Wettig, Melanie Mayron and writer Joseph Dougherty

Created by the award-winning director/writer/producer team of Marshall Herskovitz and Edward Zwick, the critically-acclaimed television series thirtysomething became something of a phenomenon by virtue of its recognizable title, compelling storytelling and identifiable characters during the course of its four-season run on network television from 1987 through 1991. The winner of ten Primetime Emmy Awards, a Golden Globe, a Peabody Award and numerous honors and accolades, thirtysomething captivated television viewers with its realistic on-screen portrayal of a baby boomer generation coping with the complexities of growing up, and inspired many of them to re-examine their own lives.

Boasting an all-star ensemble cast including Timothy Busfield (Lipstick Jungle, The West Wing), Polly Draper (Gideon's Crossing), Mel Harris (Saints & Sinners, Stargate SG-1), Peter Horton (The Philanthropist, Grey's Anatomy), Melanie Mayron (Lipstick Jungle), Ken Olin (Brothers & Sisters) and Patricia Wettig (Brothers & Sisters), thirtysomething channeled the consciousness of baby boomers into a running commentary on what it really meant to be on the cusp of success and failure, marriage and divorce, adulthood and parenthood. Every week the show blurred the lines between television and film, drama and comedy, hard reality and twisted imagination. Each episode of this truly groundbreaking series was its own unit yet somehow fed a larger, growing experience from week to week.

The television series thirtysomething is a production of the Bedford Falls Company in association with MGM/UA Television Production Group.
