Editorial Reviews

In Route 66, Yale graduate Tod Stiles (Milner) is the more-cultured intellectual who led a privileged and sheltered life. Brooding Buz Murdock (Maharis) is a tough young man who grew up in "Hell's Kitchen" and struggled his entire life just to survive. When his wealthy father dies, Tod unexpectedly finds himself flat broke with just one sole possession, a powder-blue 1960 Corvette. On a quest to find adventure, excitement - and himself - he and Buz hit the open road to see America.

After all the praise I gave Infinity Entertainment for listening to the desires of the consumer with the release of Route 66 - The Complete First Season and Route 66 - The Complete Second Season, they backslide with a half-season release of Season 3, Volume 1. This is early news and perhaps a full season issue would be not far behind. Either way Infinity Entertainment is light years ahead of the dullards at CBS/Paramount.

With further thought, Season 3 was a transitional season with the mid-season departure of primary performer George Maharis due to illness. With Maharis out and Glenn Corbett in AND being 31 episodes long, a 2-Vol. set is semi-acceptable; just barely:)!

Either way, we do praise Roxbury/Infinity Entertainment for continuing marketing of this fine classic anthology.

UPDATE: 07.21.09

Here's a scoop on what to expect.

This 16 episode set is housed in a plastic clam-shell; two discs staggered per side. The discs themselves are pictures of the cover art with a large 1, 2, 3 and 4. The audio quality is extra crisp while the picture quality is superb, retaining the original Aspect Ratio of 1.33:1. The DVD intro splash menu is really clever with a PLAY ALL or EPISODES options. And I stand corrected as Original Episode Commercials are listed under the EXTRAS option on Disc 4.

The only cons are that there are no listings of the episodes in the clam-shell or cover box; only on the EPISODES option. Also the cast and bios feature from S.1 & S.2 are missing.

I just received my copy of this release, and the packaging is different than the previous season releases. It comes in a plastic Amaray style case that holds 2 discs on each side, which slips into a cardboard slipcase. I don't mind the new packaging, but the omission of the episode listing is quite annoying. Now the only way to determine what episodes are on each disc is to put it in the player! Well I guess I will make up my own episode list and put it in the case. Don't worry though the video and audio quality are crisp and clear as ever. Another thing they omitted is the cast bios from this release, BUT, unlike the previous season you DO get the classic commercials they once gave you. This time they throw in Bumpers, Next On Promos, Station ID's, etc.

ANOTHER NOTE: The Episode "Only By Cunning Glimpses" on Disc 3 has been taken from a syndicated master, and not the original film negative like all of the other episodes so far. The video quality is pretty good, but the audio is a little bit muddy. At the end, this episode does not contain the "Screen-Gems" logo followed by the "CBS Television Network" spiral like the other episodes do. It is replaced with a COLOR "Columbia Pictures Television" logo instead.

UPDATE #3: The Full Season Release is out everywhere now and the production issues have been rectified. You don't gain anything from buying Volume One on it's own, I would spend the few extra dollars and buy the Complete Season Set for Season 3. There is nothing special about the Complete Season either - no book, no episode listing, just 8 discs in a case, but the content ON THEM is WORTH EVERY PENNY! Just one more season left and the entire series is released.

This first half of Season 3 features the final stages of George Maharis' bow out from the series. He would appear in the first 12 episodes (discs 1-3) of this set and in the first episode of Season 3, Volume 2. Some intense and enjoyable performances by Maharis were couched in this season. A synopsis of those episodes is featured below.

Journey To Nineveh. A frolicsome story with Buster Keaton as a snakebitten man named Jonah. Buz works to break Jonah's apparent lifelong jinx. One of the lighthearted 66 episodes not meant to be played seriously. Milner & Maharis clearly enjoy working with the physical comedy legend that was Keaton.

Man Out Of Time, with Luther Adler playing an aged gangster who fears payback from old enemies.

Voice At The End Of The Line casts Sorrel Booke as a wimpish man who loves a switchboard operator he's never seen. Booke's performance is moving and offers a ray of hope to any man who has fallen for a woman considered "out of his league". The storyline serves as a forerunner for the chatrooms and online dating services so prevalent on today's global information expressway. Well done.

Lizard's Leg & Owlet's Wing. Near Chicago, Buz & Tod get jobs at O'Hare Hotel, host to a convention featuring Boris Karloff, Peter Lorre, & Lon Chaney. These titans of terror want to know if their horror costumes will work on the hotel staff and its patrons. Thanks to the hokiness of this script, they do. Crafting an episode honoring the legacy of Karloff, Lorre, & Chaney is a kind gesture. A more kind gesture would've been to create a program which did not strain the show's credibility nor strained to attain laughs. One of the low points of the season and the series, IMO.
