The episodes look great in digital format.

When my husband and I can sit down and watch a show together because we BOTH like it, that says something.

If you read the earlier review that stated that these are the syndicated versions, don't fret too much, because it's not exactly true. The only episode that's been cut is The Cradle Will Rock and that was due to music rights issues. The remaining episodes may have a few music changes, but otherwise are the real deal.

Season Three is the best of the seasons of Hunter. There's plenty of action for the action fans and the dialogue and chemistry between Hunter and McCall are smokin'!

One thing that old fans of the series may have forgotten is how funny this show is, and many of the funniest bits were improvised by Fred Dryer and Stepfanie Kramer. Check out the hilarious banter in From San Francisco with Love, and experience the depth of Hunter and McCall's feelings about their partnership in Change Partners and Dance.

Order this DVD and you won't be sorry. And when you're done, get season two! Episodes like The Big Fall, Rape and Revenge and Burned are top notch and won't disappoint.

Hard to tell I'm a big fan, huh?

This is one of those great shows whose consecutive releases on to DVD may be halted because most fans of the show believed that the show was getting better and stronger later into the future seasons. With only a mild appeal for the first few seasons, it's very likely that Anchor Bay feels that the show isn't selling well enough with the first few seasons so they may have decided to give up continuing the releases on DVD.

That's a shame, because many of us "Hunter" fans felt the the best episodes were when we were getting use to Charles Hallahan as Hunter and McCall's boss. The earlier shows showed that Rick Hunter wasn't treated with any respect from his boss or the police station in general. This was a bad start for the show. If Rick Hunter's superiors had no respect for him, how could we, the viewer, find respect for him? The first few seasons conveyed a bad image for Rick Hunter although I still appreciated the show. If it wasn't for the gorgeous Stepfanie Kramer as Dee Dee McCall, I would have given the first two seasons a miss. So, simply put, when Rick Hunter got more respect, the show became more respectable. And enjoyable.

I hope season four will come out soon. This is where the show just keeps getting better and better. We Hunter fans need to keep voicing our concern for this show or they may just scrub the whole project altogether.

Hunter, Season Three is selling for the same price as Season One and Two.

The first two seasons were single-sided DVDs, season three has gone to the double-sided disk.

The producer of the Hunter series has increased his profit margin and the consumers, may suffer--I don't have much faith in the quality of double side disks.

Follow-up--I was watching the "Crossfire" episode and lost the sound.

I won't buy anything else on double-sided DVD.

This season had some of the best episodes in the Hunter series. "High Noon in LA", "Any Second Now" and "Shades" are some of the best! It's great that after all this time Hunter is finally being released on DVD! I just hope it continues and all the seasons are released. Including the couple of new episodes that were filmed and never showed during the hunter revival a couple of years ago!!!

This show is still good! Sometimes, it gets a little slow when a 'romance' develops; but otherwise, it's dynamite!

The generic has been changed. It's softer at the beginning with the kids shown before a drug deal; but once the dead blond is seen, the main theme roars out with Hunter and McCall!

Here are my comments on some of the key episodes:

Overnight Sensation: Excellent beginning! A reporter is obsessed about sinking Hunter. That episode is well played and very believable. Good story too.

High Noon in L.A.: This is a follow-up episode from the 'rape and revenge' from season 2. The plot is very good still. I'll admit that this Mariano is somewhat less sleazy than the rapist.

From San Francisco with Love: yes, there is some romance in this one. However, it is short and when Hunter's new love interest is a cold-blooded killer; it's great!

True Confessions: A woman's sister is drugged and raped by 3 young men. She dies during the assault. The 3 men get off on a technicality and then the sister is outraged. When each suspect dies one by one, Hunter suspects the sister.

Love, Hate and Sporty James: This episode is the result of what happens when a small-time hood plays with the mafia. Sporty James made a deadly mistake sending his girlfriend to her death! Dealing with the mafia is deadly enough, but f..... with them is much worst!

The Contracts: Another great episode where a kidnapping is staged. However, when the gardener is murdered; Hunter gets on the ball fast!

Bad Company: WWF fans rejoice! Big John Studd guest stars as the #1 terrorist muscles. His battle with Hunter is fun but unrealistic...How can an ex-footballer (even though he's 6'6") deal with a former WWF champ?

This set of "Hunter" included my favorite episode, 'The Cradle Will Rock', guest starring Chaka Khan. I was very disappointed to find out these are the syndicated episodes and not the full and complete episodes that originally aired on NBC. Therefore, some of the scenes have been edited out of several of the episodes.
