Blu-ray Review: Third Season of FOX Hit ‘Glee’
CHICAGO – The kids of “Glee” are back a little early this year as FOX has released the third season of the hit musical comedy earlier than the wave of TV-on-Blu-ray releases that are about to hit stores. This season was a bit of a letdown after the first two, earning much fewer Emmy nominations and sliding pretty far in the ratings. And the Blu-ray release feels like a step down from previous years as well. True fans will be happy but newcomers should obviously start with seasons one or two.
Blu-Ray Rating: 3.0/5.0
By now, “Glee” is not a new concept to anyone and even its Blu-ray releases have followed a pattern. The coolest feature on any of the season sets has been the Jukebox, which allows fans to skip that pesky plot stuff and just listen to the music. You can pick your favorite musical number, play them all in order, or even shuffle them up for a “Glee” party. Other than the Jukebox, this season set is a little light on special features compared to previous ones. The transfers are strong, especially the audio tracks, a necessity for a music-heavy show like this one.
Will “Glee” bounce back creatively in its fourth season? The ensemble and writers are talented enough to believe that it could although there is a bit of reason for concern given the fact that creator Ryan Murphy will more likely be occupied with the vastly superior “American Horror Story” and his new sitcom “The New Normal.” This could be the last notable season of “Glee” or merely the dip before the comeback.
Glee: The Complete Third Season was released on Blu-ray and DVD on August 14, 2012
