another issue with the season three DVD is a lack of bonus features. There is deleted scenes and thats all while the two privious seasons DVDs had much more bonus features. finally, if I had known that the three Italy episodes where not on this DVD, I would not have purchased season three. Very disapointing.
That being said, I have no problems with the storyline and watching how this business has really taken off and I am genuinely happy for Buddy and the Valastro's.
BUT..................there is the stench of money-hungry greed that is seeping into the purchase of the show and I highly doubt that it's from Buddy's side of the fence.
To wit, I have been most disappointed with the fact that after purchasing the DVD's, and finding episodes missing, apparently there is a regular set and then there is a "special edition" set that is for sale, but not here on Amazon, only on the TLC website. But according to the general product description on Amazon, they state that everything is included. Let me assure readers that "caveat emptor" is in order (buyer beware).
The regular set does NOT contain all the episodes from the season; they left out the Valastro trip to Italy as well as bonus features. But if you go to the TLC website and pay $40 + s/h = $45 total, then you get the "extra" in the form of a "special edition". An insult as well as another chance to squeeze more money out of you.
Normally I don't comment on this type of thing because most of the time, if you read the general product review, the information is in there. But the review states that the Italy trip is indeed included and it was not. Too late for me as I had already opened the set.
The same with Season 4 but worse. On TLC, Season 4 comes in "special" edition AND there it is packaged as only "Volume One".Read more ›
Also, this season definitely has more gimmicks--Buddy and the guys have all sorts of silly competitions and excursions that are obviously just filler to make less repetitive TV. Fun I guess, but ultimately hurts the show more than it helps.
Overall, if you're a fan, not a bad purchase, but certainly could have been a lot better DVD release. Dropping arbitrary episodes (and some of the best ones at that) is really weak.
