A bit upset with season three DVD,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Flashpoint: Third Season (DVD)
I've been watching Flashpoint on Netflix because I wanted to get caught up and start watching season 4. I missed most of seasons 2 and 3 because I was attending band camp. So after watching up to the episode "Acceptable Risk" on Netflix, I decided to buy all three season, because I absolutely LOVE this show! So today, my DVDs come in the mail and I immediately go to the season 3 DVD so I can watch the next episode. To my disappointment, the last episode in the season three DVD is "Acceptable Risk." This greatly saddened me and now I have to go find another place to watch the last episodes of season three. :/ If you're looking to buy ALL the episodes from season three, look somewhere else. Although, if you're content with just buying up to "Acceptable Risk", buy all three seasons from Amazon :) Nevertheless, I'm glad I now have them on DVD so I don't have to wait for Netflix to load :D

Yeah... I think the problem here is that CBS massively screwed up when they were airing the show. They've done this before - they released the first half of Season 2 as the entire season, then decided to cobble the second half of the second season together with some episodes from the third season and call it Season 3. When CBS started airing the actual third season (beginning with "Unconditional Love"), they ran the episodes up to "Acceptable Risk" and then put the show on hiatus. I'm not sure if they're calling the remaining half of Season 3 the fourth season or what, but they've totally mixed things up.
I would suggest buying the seasons on Amazon.ca instead, but it doesn't look like they have the third season up (only a small boxed set imported from CBS).

Netflix is not right. On Wikipedia, there are 6 episode after "Acceptable risk" (Colat. Damage, Thicker than Blood, Terror, No Promises, I'd do anything, and fault lines) however they have the things that are listed as "disc only" are from the earier seasons. This might also be an issue with CBS and their DVD release.

Actually, if you go to CTV.ca, the canadian network that makes the show, you'll find there are in fact only 4 episodes after "Acceptable Risk". Also, the episodes you listed above are not in the correct order. Check CTV's website and you'll see the complete listing for the 13 show season.

Please remember that Flashpoint is a Canadian show. What defines season 1 vs. season 2 vs. season 3 is different in the US than in Canada. In the US, Acceptable Risk is the last episode of season 3--the US season 3. The episodes that are airing now as season 4 first were the last episodes of the Canadian season 3. If you go to www.imdb.com and go to the page for Flashpoint, compare the earlier episodes listed on your season 3 DVD with the later episodes of season 2. They overlap. This is the US DVD, and it does include all of the season 3 episodes. Stay tuned for the rest of season 3--which is actually season 4 for us.
