I scouted around on Anchor Bay Entertainment's website to see what I could find out about this set.

Here are the scheduled extras:
* Interviews with the Actresses/Actors, Producers, Editors, Writers, and Set Designers: Donald Duncan, Robert Gillies, Lucy Lawless, Hudson Leick, Renee O'Connor, Ted Raimi; Oley Sassone, Steven L. Sears, R.J. Stewart, Alexandra Tydings

As has already been said by several reviewers, Season Three was a great season. The last episode of the season was a real cliff-hanger. I couldn't believe which character was killed! Here's an episode guide, with a tiny description:
The Furies: Xena is punished for not avenging her father's death.
Been There, Done That: Joxer is killed.
The Dirty Half Dozen: Ares and his army possess armor and weapons that mortal weapons can't harm.
The Deliverer: Gabrielle is tricked into taking the life of an innocent.
Gabrielle's Hope: Gabrielle gives birth to a baby girl.
The Debt (1): Xena is summoned to kill the Green Dragon.
The Debt (2): Xena is imprisoned by the Green Dragon.

This is my 2nd favorite season of the six; I couldn't love this show more...Xena (Lucy Lawless) and Gabrielle (Renee O'Connor) completely outdo themselves this season; Everything is an emotional rollercoaster, the episodes are surging with tearjerking revelations, rolling on the floor humor, illuminating the bonds of love and the power of brutal consequences, the triumpths of conquest, the soul-grinding pain of loss and betrayl, the hope to overcome...
You WILL NOT be disappointed! Not a chance!!
The Furies
Ares enlists the aid of the Furies, who declare that the Warrior Princess has committed a terrible crime. Gabrielle investigates, and discovers that Xena had failed to avenge the murder of her father. That's news to Xena: she didn't know that her father had been murdered, much less the identity of the killer.
Been There, Done That
Xena realizes her day is repeating itself so she can break a cycle of death that hinges on two lovers' warring families.
Gabrielle's Hope
Gabrielle and Xena learn about the upcoming birth of evil Dahak's "daughter of darkness" which hits VERY close to home.
The Debt, Part I: Betrayal
As Xena and Gabrielle travel toward the Eastern kingdom of Chin, Xena recalls a kidnapping episode from her dark past involving two rival Chin clans.
The Debt, Part II
Flashbacks recall Xena's transformaton from evil to good. But in the present, the Green Dragon has captured Xena thanks to an unlikely betrayer.
The Bitter Suite
Xena and Gabrielle are bound by hatred in a dreamworld, where they must sing to be understood. Fans still go crazy for this episode...

[Summary: 5 stars for terrific content & GREAT extras]
Note: This review contains NO SPOILERS; it's all about the DVD extras.
Xena: Warrior Princess Season Three DVD collection summary:
- 8 DVDs, with 3 episodes each except 1 in disc 8; 22 total episodes.
- Video: Very good throughout; less compression than 4 episodes/disc.
- Audio: 5.1 Dolby Digital Surround throughout.
- DVD Extras: Stills, audio and video commentary on 8 episodes (1/disc), an "interview" (featurette) on every episode, bloopers, plus much extra on "Sacrifice", the season ender. Season Two included 3 commentaries only. MUCH better!
Season Two was worth a bit over 4.5 stars; Season Three is nearly perfect (5 stars).
