5.0 out of 5 stars Season 3 of the Pretender! December 1, 2005
This is the season where we see Jarod and his secrets at the centre and his relations with Sydney. Here are the episodes.

1. Crazy: PLEASENT WOOD INSTITUTE, MARYLAND - Jarod becomes a mental patient to undercover the truth behind the mysterious murder of another patient. Miss Parker researches the identity of her twin.

2. Hope and Prey: Jarod experiences the world of the bounty hunter as he seeks an American Indian activist who has a price on his head. In the meanwhile, Miss Parker learns more about her mother's death.

3. Once in a Blue Moon: To save a teen-age victim, Jarod learns the skills of criminal behaviorists and comes face-to-face with the Blue Moon Killer.

4. Someone to Trust: Jarod poses as an arsonist to expose a corrupt attorney, but faces unexpected accusations when the attorney is found dead.

5. Betrayal: Jarod teams up with Broots to find the culprit in a shootout at the Centre's Data Annex, a former operative named Damon.

6. Parole: Jarod portrays a paroled convict to aid a widow; Sydney learns startling news while consoling an old lover whose husband is dying.

7. Homefront: Jarod steals millions from the Centre, then poses as an arms dealer selling missile launchers to a weapons merchant in Venezuela.

8. Flesh and Blood: Jarod takes on the role of a tracking expert to help find four teachers, including Sydney's son, Nicholas, who are taken hostage in the Appalachian hills.

9. Murder 101: Jarod takes over a criminal psychology class and teaches a lesson in committing a flawless murder before tracking down three suspected killers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Everything gets turned up a notch or two. February 1, 2006
Jarod (Michael T. Weiss) turned up the heat for the Centre in season three. Not that there wasn't more than enough heat in there already.

Miss Parker (Andrea Parker) finally got a bit of a life in the form of a contractor who could see right through her. In some cases ignoring her Centre responsiblities, and even pondering retirement. Parker (the actress), who was great in her role already, seemed to really enjoy the opportunity to show a new side of Parker (the character).

Mr. Lyle, while MIA for much of the season, has a whole new presence from the very beginning when Miss Parker finds out a disturbing truth about her Centre associate. Even more disturbing is the news that Brigitte has toward the end of the season, and the beginning of her marriage to Mr. Parker.

The end of the season has the most recognizable of the young flashback Jarods (Ryan Merriman) comes face-to-face with his modern day counterpart after Jarod discovers a Centre plot to clone him. Also giving the opportunity to reunite Jarod with his father, Major Charles (George Lazenby).

This season also includes the episode that got me hooked on the series, "Someone to Trust". Guest star Julia Campbell is great as a widow who may not be all that she seems. (Are they ever?)

Overall, a great seaon for a series that kept getting better and better.

5.0 out of 5 stars What would you do? January 10, 2006
This show makes you think what would you do if you were isolated from the everyday things that people take for granted. Michael T. Weiss makes Jarod believable. His sweet innocence mixed with his look of revenge makes him a perfect pretender. For each episode it is written as a comic good triumphs over evil yet, for every episode Jarod is introduced to new mainstream objects and terms. Who would have thunk fruitcake and spam would be appreciated. Even with his naiveness he still has a heart for the one person who wants him back in the hell he was brought as a child.

Even if you have never heard of this show it is worth just getting the starter kit and just see how intriguing and amazing this show is. I'm quite saddened that the show ended but I'm ver thrilled that it came out on DVD! I have the first two seasons already and can't wait for the other two.

If you are looking for the answer of human behaviour then this show is for you!

2.0 out of 5 stars Great Series; Horrible Disc December 10, 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Sorry guys, I love Prentender just as much as the rest of you--in fact I have bought all four seasons plus the movies. Unfortunately, the discs are ALL defective. At least in seasons 1 and 2 I could still play them on my computer, but season 3 Disc 1 side 1, last episode (I believe it is "Someone to Trust") would not play on either of my DVD players nor my computer. Extremely poor quality. I am not the only one complaining about this either--look at reviews on other seasons.

5.0 out of 5 stars A+++ December 8, 2007
Haven't seen this show since i was a kid...i remember it being good that was the reason i bought ALL the seasons. After buying them I couldn't stop watching them they were that good. Episode after episode I wanted to see what was next. Lets just say i slept less after i bought these. This is a must see...if you remember the show buy it and if you don't buy it you'll enjoy it.

5.0 out of 5 stars My favorite series of all time December 29, 2005
After watching only a few episodes, The Pretender quickly become my favorite series of all time, and remains so to this day. Each episode was well-acted and the ensemble cast always seemed to bring out the best in each other.

One of my biggest wishes is that the creators will finally make a movie faithful to the series to bring a resolution to the main characters questions about their pasts, and their future. Even the people of Gilligan's Island finally made it home. Please someone, write a good ending to this show.

Profiler cross over
I don't know if you're still curious about this, but no the DVDs don't include the profiler episodes (which stinks).
