Alas, George Maharis, after giving us two and a half seasons worth of Emmy-caliber performances as Buz Murdock, has hit the road. Or rather, he's "unhit" the road, leaving his less flashy but more reliable co-star Martin Milner to go it alone. Yes, Buz is gone for good, never to be so much as referred to on screen again. And if you're a Maharis/Buz fan who just can't stand the idea of Route 66 without your favorite character, perhaps you'd do well to halt your collection after Season Three, Volume One. Those of you who do decide to stick along for the rest of the ride, you'll be rewarded with many more memorable moments still ahead on the journey.
Season three of Route 66 was marked by a turbulent upheaval such as few television programs have to suffer. It actually seems almost like three completely different seasons in one - first there was the show we'd come to know and love, featuring Tod and Buz in some of their greatest moments. Then the abrupt departure of Maharis, leaving Tod to go it alone. And then the final third part of the season, in which Tod meets Lincoln Case and a new partnership develops with a new set of adventures.
Each one of those three parts of season three of Route 66 had its own separate dynamic. Stage One was the classic Route 66 we've come to expect, a polished program which had settled into and was thriving in its format and the rapport between its two leads, turning out some of its best episodes such as "Man Out of Time" or "Ever Ride the Waves in Oklahoma?". The sudden departure of Maharis brought that to a skidding halt. Then came stage two, in which Tod wandered the road alone, the show becoming more and more like a genuine anthology series as Milner's character, as well-developed as it was, clearly needed a foil to realize its full potential.

I don't know what happened, but the quality control of these discs sure is lousy. First I bought the complete Season 3 from a local store and they were encoded improperly and recalled. so, instead I bought the season in 2 parts. Both Vol. 1 &2 made incredible rumbling noises in my dvd player, so I got replacements which did the same thing. Apparently Infinity got a batch of warped blank DVD's or something. Anyway I had to send it back to Amazon a second time, and at that point they would only refund my account. I bought them again at another store, they made the rumbling sound, but worked in my player for the most part. Now, I bought a blu-ray player, and only half of the discs will play in it, so I am stuck again with a bad season! I love the show, but I'm not fond of the quality of the company putting them out. 5 stars for the show, 1 star for quality control. Once they play discs look and sound great, it has nothing to do with the quality of the transfer, just getting them to play is difficult!

With Volume 2 we our see gritty friend from 'Hell's Kitchen' Buz Murdock depart from the series (with no explanation) after the first episode on disc one. After a few solo episodes for Tod we meet newcomer Lincoln "Linc" Case played by actor Glenn Corbett. Corbett's character is quite interesting as a moody returnee fresh from Vietnam (great foresight for returning 'Nam' Vets) by writer Stirling Silliphant.

As for the quality of the set, the audio is crisp and the video is sharp and clean with all episodes running close to ~50 minutes each. I'm not sure but I always feel as if there is missing footage on each show; just my humble opinion. Meanwhile, both volumes of Season 3 make for great viewing!

UPDATE: 10.05.09

I'm having the same rumbling sound on start-up; at least with disc one, just as I had with Route 66: Season 3 Volume 1. A new set is on the way from Amazon; hopefully that will be the cure. Curious if anyone else experienced the same problem.

UPDATE: 10.11.09

After receiving the replacement set from Amazon, it took some juggling of discs between the two sets to get a working set. Here's hoping Season 4 will be trouble free! And out soon too:)

One of my favorite TV shows all time. In 1964 I bought a "62 Vette and still have it. This show brings back great memories. Wish they would have included interviews with George Maharis and Martin Milner. The theme music was perfect for the show. Would love to see a CD of the music. DVD is a must for "route 66" fans.

After the tremendous quality of Route 66 Season 3 Vol 1, I expect no less of the 2nd volume of this season. Let's hope we get Season 4 entirely released in 2010 so we can have the complete set of a great TV series. Thanks, Infinity!!!

Update after purchase:
The quality of this DVD is VERY good. Bring on Season 4, Infinity!

What happened to George Maharas? Route 66 is not Route 66 without Buzz. He makes the show. I like Todd too, but they complement one another. I doubt that I will buy Season 4. Kathy
