Guest stars for this round of song and dance include Jeff Goldblum and Brian Stokes Mitchell (as Lea Michele's fathers), Whoopi Goldberg, Ricky Martin, and Idina Menzel — with additional, not-so-note-worthy appearance by Lindsay Lohan, Perez Hilton, and NeNe Leakes. Fox Home Entertainment brings us all twenty-two episodes of this memorable season to Blu-ray in a glorious transfer that brings out the best the shot-on-film show has to offer all-around. The colors are extremely lifelike, contrast is well-balanced, and black levels are perfect. There is some grain present here, but that's to be expected for a series that's not shot digitally, so I don't want to hear any whining on that one, folks.
The set's DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 soundtrack is also great here, and balances out the show's dialogue and enthralling musical numbers wonderfully. Subtitles are provided in English (SDH), Spanish, French, and Portuguese. Special features include an option to jump to your favorite song from this season, a couple of deleted/extended scenes, an assortment of one-liners from Jane Lynch's inimitable character, and a half-dozen featurettes that range from the show's production to an answer session from the aforementioned Ms. Lynch as Sue Sylvester.
Like I said before, this is my first experience with Glee. Many fans who have been with the series since the beginning have expressed their dissatisfaction with this season as opposed to Seasons One and Two, so I can only imagine the greatness I've missed so far. Oh, well, I'm very happy with Glee: The Complete Third Season both in terms of the show's quality and the Blu-ray's transfer.
