The globe-spanning race continues in the Emmy award winning third season of THE AMAZING RACE. Increasing the number of teams from 11 to 12 ratchets up the tension as the contestants race everywhere from Switzerland to Singapore. Armed with only their wits and their passports, the diverse cast members include a pair of twin models, soccer moms and the memorable father/son team of Dennis, a conservative southern Baptist, and Andrew, an openly gay cheerleader.
One team ends up detained by local authorities after putting their trust in a cab driver, proving that in THE AMAZING RACE your teammate is the only one you can truly trust. Further panic breaks out as the race comes to a sputtering stop, literally, when the contestants don't know the difference between diesel and unleaded gas. Find out who wins the photo finish in this special edition DVD set, and prepare yourself for the adventure of a lifetime."

Checking the other two unplayed disks, I discovered they were also deeply scratched/scored.
Since I'd also purchased Amazing Race Season #4, I opened that one up and found all three of those disks were damaged right out of the box too.
It appears the disk burner they're using is gobbling up the disks as it's producing them, and no one is noticing that they're sending out defective products. Hey, nice quality control!!!! A guy with a $100 DVR, making bootleg copies in his garage, would have a tough time making worse junk than what I received.
Amazon is sending replacement copies, so I've got my fingers crossed that the 2nd time is the charm.

About the DVD...
The packaging makes a lot more sense than the season 2 release last february. This set has has three discs with disc 1 having episodes 1-4. Disc 2 has episodes 5-8. Disc 3 has episodes 9-11. The picture and sound quality is beautiful! The cover art however is lame compared to the covers of season 1 & 7...it honestly seems like someone got lazy while designing it! Something i was really disapointed in was the bonus features and extras....THERE WERE NONE!!! Because of the bonus features and cover art is why i rated it 4 stars.
About the Show... ***SPOILER ALERT***
This season definetly ranks in my top 5 along with seasons 6, 7, 14, 16. Its so much more interesting in the older seasons when the teams had to figure out where to go rather than just being told. Something i thought was unfair was in episode 3 when Andrew & Dennis were in about 3rd place...they decided to do the fast forward yet it was soo far away that they came in last place and were eliminated.....what??
NOW COME ON AMAZON AND CBS...PLEASE RELEASE MORE!!!!!!!!!!!!
