Editorial Reviews

Filmed in locations from coast to coast, Route 66 (1960-64) is an edgy anthology series known for its top-drawer writing, intriguing characters and stellar guest star appearances, delivering engaging storylines and winning scenarios week after week and establishing the Corvette as an American icon. Now you can own Route 66: Complete Third Season, featuring all 31 episodes of this pivotal road trip classic's junior season which marked the departure of co-star George Maharis (Buz Murdock) and the introduction of Glenn Corbett. In Route 66, Yale graduate Tod Stiles (Milner) is the more-cultured intellectual who led a privileged and sheltered life. Brooding Buz Murdock (Maharis) is a tough young man who grew up in "Hell's Kitchen" and struggled his entire life just to survive. When his wealthy father dies, Tod unexpectedly finds himself flat broke with just one sole possession, a powder-blue 1960 Corvette. On a quest to find adventure, excitement - and himself - he and Buz hit the open road to see America. After Maharis' latter-season exit, Corbett came on board to fill the infamous Corvette's shotgun seat as Army vet Lincoln Case. Newly released from six years of duty, including a stint in Vietnam, Case joins Stiles on his rambling, cross-country journey of exploration and adventure. Also along for the ride are guest stars John Astin, Buster Keaton, Sorrell Booke, Rod Steiger, Nina Foch, Ed Asner, Leslie Nielson, Ron Howard, Natalie Schafer, Julie Newmar, James Whitmore, Harvey Korman, Robert Duvall, Dick York, Gene Hackman, Rip Torn, Alan Alda, Tom Bosley and many others. One episode features special appearances by screen horror legends Lon Chaney, Jr., Peter Lorre and Boris Karloff. Created by Academy Award-winning writer Stirling Silliphant (In The Heat of The Night) and prolific producer Herbert Leonard (Naked City, Rin Tin Tin, Circus Boy, Popi), Route 66 offered television viewers a unique anthology series with ground-breaking production values, filmed on location throughout the U.S.

Roxbury/Infinty have had a rocky time releasing Route 66 on DVD. The first half of season one used poor quality prints, including one edited episode. The second half of season one was originally released with the aspect ratio altered. The aspect ratio was corrected with the complete first season release, but the poor quality prints remained. Season two came off without a hitch, but the "Best Buy exclusive" release of season three was marred by disc authorship problems. I am happy to report that the corrected release (packaged in a yellow-hued plastic as another commenter has noted) has played well, though with the disc rattle that has plagued several Infinty releases. The A/V quality on this release is good, if not up to Image Entertainment standards. Solid blacks and little debris present. Also, there is no episode list contained in this set. The show itself is, of course, one of the best in US TV history, so it's worth overlooking the minor quibbles (disc rattle and no booklet).

This is a review of this specific DVD package combining Season 3 Parts 1 and 2. Disc 2 has unreadable sections on it. I've tried a DVD player, Blu-Ray player, and several PC drives, and all freeze at certain times on Disc 2 (previously issued as Disc 2 of Season 1, Part 1). I received two replacement copies from Amazon with exactly the same defect. Whether it's a manufacturer's problem or simply a defect in a certain batch, I don't know. This was taken off the Amazon market for a short time, but since it's available again I assume this problem has been resolved. I'll wait awhile before purchasing the set again, however.

It's great to have these episodes available on DVD, but the first disc is obviously unbalanced and vibrates so violently it sounds like it's going to shake my DVD player apart. Also, it would have been a small matter to include an enclosure listing the episode titles, but there was nothing. Still, I'm happy to have it.

The third season of Route 66 saw the replacement of "Buz" with "Linc" as Todd's travel companion on the road. Although I liked George Maharis better than Glen Corbett, he still does a great job with his character. There are some really great episodes in this season if you able to watch them. My set came with 3 defective discs, and I returned it to Amazon. Getting a good set is kind of like playing Russian Roulette from the manufacturer Infinity / Roxbury Entertainment. When you are able to play the discs, the quality of the picture and sound are quite good, it's a shame that the problem is with the production of the physical discs. I just got a new Panasonic Blu-Ray player and I kept getting "Unsupported Disc" but the thing was making so much noise in the player you could tell it was not a disc formatting issue. I put it in 2 other players with the same results - the discs were not readable. You would think that they would just re-manufacture this product with GOOD discs instead of having to play the return game. Anyway I hope Season 4 is being released soon, on better quality discs that is!

I had no problem playing any of the discs in this set (which I purchased from amazon). The player I used was a panasonic standard dvd player. I would be interested to know how well these play in blu-ray players.

I have obtained the complete First, Second and Third Seasons of Route 66 through amazon.com and have been overjoyed with the quality of the digital remastering done by Infinity Entertainment. This seminal '60s period piece is a must for anyone who can identify with the Kerouac "On the Road" era. I personally cannot wait for the final (fourth) season to be released in its entirety.

After returning two sets of the Complete Third Season, I will bide my time until the manufacturing process creating defective discs is examined and resolved. The first set had a bad Vol 1 Disc 4 and the replacement set had a bad Vol 1 Disc 4 and Vol 2 Disc 1. I have the Complete Seasons One and Two and would like to add the Third and Fourth Seasons. On a personal note, I feel there are several excellent episodes that warrant the purchase of Season Three. This would have been a 5 star review if not for the defective discs.

Disk 2 of this set has a known defect that causes the disk to stop playing in all DVD players. This item should not be offered for sale at any price without disclaimer. Was very disappointed as the episode I wanted was on disk 2!
