Season three of Route 66 was marked by a turbulent upheaval such as few television programs have to suffer. It actually seems almost like three completely different seasons in one - first there was the show we'd come to know and love, featuring Tod and Buz in some of their greatest moments. Then the abrupt departure of Maharis, leaving Tod to go it alone. And then the final third part of the season, in which Tod meets Lincoln Case and a new partnership develops with a new set of adventures.
Each one of those three parts of season three of Route 66 had its own separate dynamic. Stage One was the classic Route 66 we've come to expect, a polished program which had settled into and was thriving in its format and the rapport between its two leads, turning out some of its best episodes such as "Man Out of Time" or "Ever Ride the Waves in Oklahoma?". The sudden departure of Maharis brought that to a skidding halt. Then came stage two, in which Tod wandered the road alone, the show becoming more and more like a genuine anthology series as Milner's character, as well-developed as it was, clearly needed a foil to realize its full potential.Read more ›
As for the quality of the set, the audio is crisp and the video is sharp and clean with all episodes running close to ~50 minutes each. I'm not sure but I always feel as if there is missing footage on each show; just my humble opinion. Meanwhile, both volumes of Season 3 make for great viewing!
I'm having the same rumbling sound on start-up; at least with disc one, just as I had with Route 66: Season 3 Volume 1. A new set is on the way from Amazon; hopefully that will be the cure. Curious if anyone else experienced the same problem.
After receiving the replacement set from Amazon, it took some juggling of discs between the two sets to get a working set. Here's hoping Season 4 will be trouble free! And out soon too:)
Update after purchase:
The quality of this DVD is VERY good. Bring on Season 4, Infinity!

As with season one & two, season three should have been sold as a complete package. Hopefully it will be in the future.Published on November 24, 2009 by Robert J. Swengrosh
