Season 3 is descent, but a little lacking...
October 16, 2012
In Disc 1, you get to see cannibals, Murphy turning into the Bar-Bo-Bot robot, Murphy turning into a mad dictator, snobby actor Beck Bristo being a jerk to the crew and several nuclear deformities and explosions. However, you'll also see how Tornado Sacks replaced Captain Murphy as Murphy apparently went off to fight in the Great Spice Wars. In real life, the guy who did the voice of Murphy died due to a terminal, rare form of cancer oddly enough according to the special features of Season 2 (not on either disc for Season 3).
In Disc 2, you'll see rapping Hesh become "The One," at another one of Debbie's weddings with an alternate version in the special features, Stormy's humerously ignorant rants about politics (in Special Features) and...that's about it for the good stuff on Disc 2.
The biggest thing wrong with Season 3 is an overall lack of Captain Murphy. Even though the voice actor for Murphy died in real life, the replacement character just doesn't seem to stack up to Murphy's wackiness. Tornado Sacks (again, replaces Murphy), is a southner meant to be the typically un-realistic, loveable idiot that only exists way too often in Hollywood productions. Tornado is more of a typical and mediocore character than he is a funny one and Tornado's stereotypical, cowboy foolishness just ends up being a poor substitute for Murphy's oblivous and yet totally hilarious insanity. There just always seems to be something missing when Murphy disappears after Episode 4.
Dispite an overall lack of Murphy and the average Tornado, many of the episodes of Season 3 still have a lot crazy plots with tons of chaos going on that seem satisfying enough for me to say that Season 3 was just a descent season for SeaLab 2021. Season 1 and 2 were better, but I'd say 3 is just worthy enough to add to the collection.
