All 19 Original Episodes! The legal eagles at McKenzie, Brackman, Chaney and Kuzak are back to approach the bench in L.A. Law: Season Three! This latest collection of the smash hit from Emmy award-winning show-runner Steven Bochco and Terry Louise Fisher compiles the complete nineteen-episode third season as originally broadcast on NBC from 1988-89.
In a year which saw nine members of its cast nominated for Emmy awards, the third season of L.A. Law also received its second of four victories as Outstanding Drama Series. Highlights of Season Three include: Jonathan Rollins (Blair Underwood) defending a mentally disturbed ventriloquist; Abby (Michele Greene) exiting the firm to strike out on her own; and Ann (Jill Eikenberry) and Stuart (Michael Tucker) continuing their efforts to have a baby. Also starring Susan Dey, Harry Hamlin, Corbin Bernsen, Larry Drake, Jimmy Smits, Susan Ruttan and Richard Dysart, Season Three makes a case for being considered the best season of L.A. Law yet...and we're sure you'll reach the same verdict!

Priced at $29.93 SRP, this collection features all 19 episodes from the 1988-89 season on NBC (note that the fewer-than-normal number of episodes was due to a writer's strike that production year, which affected other shows as well, such as - memorably - the second season of Star Trek: The Next Generation
). L.A. Law - Season 3
