Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble
The Dick Van Dyke Show never jumped the shark. But even by its own high standards, this third of the series' five seasons was a benchmark, beginning with the groundbreaking season premiere, "That's My Boy???" A flashback episode, it finds Rob Petrie (Dick Van Dyke) recounting to Mel (Richard Deacon) the tale of how he became mistakenly convinced that he and Laura had brought the wrong baby home from the hospital -- as all the documentation said "Peters" instead of Petrie. When Mr. Peters -- future Mission: Impossible star Greg Morris -- arrives with his wife to try to set things straight, the joke is on TV's black-and-white racial barrier. This was, after all, September 1963. The classics just keep on coming: among them are "October Eve," in which a nude portrait of Laura (the imagination reels!) surfaces in a New York art gallery; "Laura's Little Lie," in which Rob and Laura learn they are not legally married; "Big Max Calvada," featuring series producer Sheldon Leonard as a feared underworld kingpin who recruits Rob, Buddy, and Sally to write a nightclub act for his untalented nephew; "Who and Where Was Antonio Stradivarius?," in which an amnesiac Rob finds himself at a swinging New Jersey party; and "My Part-Time Wife," in which Laura fills in for Sally at the office. Another series landmark is the Christmas episode "The Alan Brady Show Presents," in which Rob's boss -- heretofore rarely seen, though much talked about and much feared -- becomes a recurring character raised to iconic status by series creator Carl Reiner. There is, to be expected, the odd clunker ("Turtles, Ties, and Toreadors"), but, thankfully, there are no tortuous episodes about Sally's luckless love life. Emmy Awards for best series, lead actor and actress, writing, and directing confirm that this was, arguably, The Dick Van Dyke Show's very best year, and a season fans of the series will trip over themselves to own.

Dick Van Dyke Show: Season 3 5 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
Anonymous More than 1 year ago
The Dyke Van Dyke Show is very relaxing to watch, but very exciting at the same time. It is always very funny. It keeps a smile on your face. Dick Van Dyke is one of the best shows since it came out. With Laura (Mary Tyler Moore), has been very good with the show adding on to what Dick Van Dyke does. It is a very good show and I hope that you watch it for the excitment.
