Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Company B's harrowing experiences as a combat unit during the Vietnam War come to a close with Tour of Duty's third season in 1989, which marked the end of this critically acclaimed television series. The episodes contained in this set are among the most dramatic of the entire program's run, as established and new characters alike meet the brutal realities and futility of the war head-on. Departing from the regular cast this season is Kim Delaney's Alex Devlin, but among the recurring players is Carl Weathers, as by-the-book Col. Brewster; Kyle Chandler (Early Edition) as Pvt. Griner; Greg Germann of Ally McBeal as the ill-fated Lt. Beller; and Lee Majors as a world-weary and middle-aged PVC (his son Lee Majors II also appears as his character's son in "Three Cheers for the Orange, White and Blue"). Story-wise, it's a downbeat season, with episodes delving into the My Lai massacre (a multi-episode arc beginning with "A Bodyguard of Lies"), racial tension ("Odd Man Out"), and finally, the challenges facing vets upon their return to the States (season closers "The Raid" and "Payback"). The solid, unsentimental writing and performances that earmark the series as a whole are in full effect in all 20 episodes of season 3, which netted an Emmy nomination for Outstanding Sound Mixing, and a Viewers for Quality Television Award for series lead Terence Knox. As with the previous Tour of Duty boxed sets, season 3 offers no supplemental features, and replaces the period pop music that dotted the show's soundtrack with a generic incidental score. While unfortunate, neither factor should prevent viewers from exploring this excellent show. --Paul Gaita

5.0 out of 5 stars Most accurate Viet Nam series to date June 27, 2005
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This series is a favorite of my husband's. Recently retired CW4, he spent 6 1/2 years in Viet Nam as a Green Beret. He constantly picks movies on that era apart with critique about dates, uniforms, insignia, equipment, place names etc. Well you get the idea. He has been delighted with the accuracy of the series.

Several of the episodes on the earlier editions had reference to actions he was actually involved in! He paid special attention to those. We both love the series and can't wait for the last one to come out. If you can't believe the opinion of a man who was actually there and saw it, who can you believe?

I'm so glad they are going to release this as my tapes of the third season are mostly worn out. We also get more episodes (20) as compared to just 16 in season 2. The boys in Tour Of Duty also steer away from most of the soap opera style episodes and the focus is now more on combat and the soldiers realizations of the futility of the Vietnam war. Some of my favorite episodes of the series were in this season especially when Carl Weathers-from the Rocky movies joins the cast and as a special forces Col. His character and acting are superb and add so much to the series. Lee Majors also joins for a few episodes as an old soldier in his third war.

Whether Tour Of Duty has real music from the 60's or the same old tired tracks we have heard throughout the series is irrelevant. Sure it WOULD be nice to hear those songs, but it seriously doesn't ruin the whole experience. If I want to hear 60's music I can always pop a cd in my stereo and listen. I bought the other two DVD sets to experience the best war series ever, not music.

To me the content of these episodes makes this the second best season. Each soldier's tour comes full circle and for better or worse they all have to deal with the problems of overstress from war, recovery the horrors they have seen, and come to grips with their part in it all whether good or bad. The series could not be complete without the closure that is given to topics that have been nagging the soldiers throughout their tours.

I doubt after watching all 20 of these episodes anyone who has complained about the music will still be complaining because of the gripping content of each episode.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tour of Duty - 3rd Season DVD September 12, 2005
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This series takes me back to when I was in Vietnam. In a way I cannot explain. I think of the guys and what we went through together. It may not be for everybody but it helps me heal.

5.0 out of 5 stars Soundtrack ? Who Cares !!!! July 5, 2005
Format:DVD
I love this Show and I was waiting for this particular Season for a long time now. Soundtrack ? who cares about the cheap muzac, I am just glad they ever came out with this series on DVD at all. I have all the episodes in VHS and the music does help the show feel like it happened during the Viet Nam era, but is not the music that makes the show but the story, characters, actors and the sweet HUEYS flying all over the place. I recomend this DVD and the complete 3 seasons.

4.0 out of 5 stars ORIGINAL SOUND TRACK AVAILABLE IN U.K. May 30, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I went to Amazon U.K. and found this great series WITH ORIGINAL SOUND TRACK MUSIC! The down side was it is only available to play in zone 2. I contacted both Amazon U.K. and Amazon U.S. but they are not much help. I think many Nam vets who own this series would be very happy to repurchase this series as most of us feel ripped off as we bought the series not knowing the music was gone. That was a great disapointment. Amazon, we want you to sell us this series WITH the original sound track! Are you listening?

4.0 out of 5 stars Where are the tunes? September 5, 2005
By Jaden
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is an excellent series and the only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is the generic soundtrack. For some reason the original soundtrack was left off the entire set and another bands music was put in it's place. No more Stones, Creedance, Mowtown or any of the best 60's music. I'm not sure why they did that. Maybe it was some kind of copyright problem. Anyway if your a fan of the series you will not be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars As usual the best TV series ever September 10, 2005
Format:DVD
Tour of Duty - is the best TV series ever, treating serious issues of the Vietnam war without hold back any punches. The acting and the scenarios make you feel that you are a part of each and every mission.

"I WISH I had read the reviews on Amazon about the removal of the original music score, before I bought all three seasons of this great TV series. I struggled through the pilot episode of Season One last night. Without the original music score, Tour Of Duty has no ambiance, and it's going to be very difficult to watch all three seasons listening to that really atrocious generic music score that Sony substituted in place of the original music."

It's been some time since I've written the above review, and I've had a chance to watch many of the episodes. Despite the missing music, the stories are great. I'm still not pleased about the music, but I'm enjoying the episodes. I've upgraded my rating from 1 star to 3 stars. If the original music score was used, this series would surely rate 5 stars.
