This half-hour comedy chronicles the hilarious world of Christopher Titus and his totally messed-up poor white trash family. Between his drunken father, his dimwitted brother, and his goody-goody best friend, it's amazing Titus is alive, let alone engaged to a "normal" girl.

One of the greatest shows ever comes to an end Nov 02, 2005
While some may say that this season lacked, I disagree strongly. This was a great show, and was pulled off because of going over the edge, which I love. Better that it ended being hilarious and extreme, than getting dull and lifeless.

Capstone To A Perfect Series Dec 06, 2006
By Robert I. Hedges
Season three of "Titus" is the darkest, but the best, of the three. The show was extraordinary and daring in the exploration of taboo and politically incorrect subjects, and while it was a shame it ended after only three seasons, the entire package when seen as a whole (especially when seen in order) is perfect. While I had always been disappointed about the cancellation, the bonus interview with Zack Ward (who is much smarter than "Dave") had the insight about the perfect whole, and I think he is right: the show ended on a high note, and will always be looked at positively in retrospect, unlike many shows that live on past their prime.
The third season deals with the darkest of all possible subjects, taken largely from Christopher Titus' own life. Most difficult is the subject of his mother's insanity and suicide, and coming to terms with the fears that it may be genetic. The episode "Tommy's Not Gay" is also extremely powerful (especially the black and white segments,) but for me the most difficult episode was the final episode "The Protector" which deals with child abuse. While I was never abused, I have seen the aftermath. It is a tragedy of the highest magnitude, and the manner in which "Titus" dealt with it in the final episode is both a cautionary tale to parents and other "protectors" and an indictment of abusers. I thought the resolution in that episode was absolutely perfect: seeing the principal finally allied for good with the ones he was charged to protect was a stunning moment of moral clarity. Heavy stuff, this, but important to see.
"Titus" is an extremely unconventional show, but a show with extreme merit. I can't recommend this series enough.

Titus - The (unfortunately) Final Season Nov 21, 2005
The third season of Titus brought some major laughs, as well as some daring, thought-provoking episodes. The laughs, as usual, came from an excellent comedy team, though I personally look forward to Stacy Keach's performance as the devilishly drunk womanizer Ken Titus, and his sadistic one-liners, though in one episode, the tables are turned on him by his equally sadistic mother, played by Phyllis Diller. Other daring episodes include "The Protector", where the guys find out that Erin's niece Amy was molested as a child and take steps to help her on the road to recovery.
Other daring episodes include "Tommy's Not Gay", where his father comes out of the closet, and "The Visit", where Titus' mother returns . . . well, I don't want to give everything away, in case you haven't seen it yourself.
I'm eager to add this set to my DVD collection, and plan to spend my down time watching Titus, instead of some trashy reality show. Do you prefer quality, or garbage?

THE FUNNIEST SHOW NOBODY HAS HEARD OF! Jan 14, 2006
A very unique show but killed off for that very reason. The interview with Stacy Keach will vouch for that(in the bonus materials). I think it's very likely it was taken off the air due to the plot of the 2 part episode. There will never be another show like this one. Taking the darkest moments in life(or family) and turning it into 22 hillarious minutes. Season 3 went to more extremes, and on occassion a bit dramatic, than the previous seasons and also some new characters are introduced(Titus' sister & Grandmother, Tommy's Dad, etc). Both DVD sets are worth buying if you are NOT easily offended. If you think shows like SEINFELD and THAT 70s SHOW are edgy, then you have never seen one single episode of TITUS. Great show. It's too bad Fox took it off the air. The interviews with the cast are the best I've seen for a TV show dvd(but where was the actor who played Tommy? MIA) and there are also about 27 minutes worth of bloopers & outtakes from all 3 seasons to watch that are not mentioned on the back of the DVD. That was nice little surprise... but be prepared for a lot of foul language! The commentaries are also fun to listen to. Highly recommended DVD. If you own the previous DVD set, then Season 3 is a no brainer. You may start laughing hillariously now.... "Err!"

ABSOLUTE MUST BUY Jul 27, 2006
Titus is one of the few comical series which deals with issues that most won't touch. It is considered to be very politically INCORRECT, dealing with sexist, raceist, and contraversial issues, thus making it an instant classic (like, "All in The Familly"). If you're teatering on the decision of purchasing, keep one thing in mind...these episodes have great reply value. There are so many laughs in each episode that you cann't possibly remember them all, without rewatching it again and again. Do yourself a favor and get it, watch it, buy it, rent it, borrow it, steal it...or whatever, but definaly watch it.
