"If you read the earlier review that stated that these are the syndicated versions, don't fret too much, because it's not exactly true. The only episode that's been cut is The Cradle Will Rock and that was due to music rights issues. The remaining episodes may have a few music changes, but otherwise are the real deal.
Season Three is the best of the seasons of Hunter. There's plenty of action for the action fans and the dialogue and chemistry between Hunter and McCall are smokin'!
One thing that old fans of the series may have forgotten is how funny this show is, and many of the funniest bits were improvised by Fred Dryer and Stepfanie Kramer. Check out the hilarious banter in From San Francisco with Love, and experience the depth of Hunter and McCall's feelings about their partnership in Change Partners and Dance.
Order this DVD and you won't be sorry. And when you're done, get season two! Episodes like The Big Fall, Rape and Revenge and Burned are top notch and won't disappoint.
Hard to tell I'm a big fan, huh?"
So, where's Season Four? It's been over a year now since th

"This is one of those great shows whose consecutive releases on to DVD may be halted because most fans of the show believed that the show was getting better and stronger later into the future seasons. With only a mild appeal for the first few seasons, it's very likely that Anchor Bay feels that the show isn't selling well enough with the first few seasons so they may have decided to give up continuing the releases on DVD.
That's a shame, because many of us "Hunter" fans felt the the best episodes were when we were getting use to Charles Callahan as Hunter and McCall's boss. The earlier shows showed that Rick Hunter wasn't treated with any respect from his boss or the police station in general. This was a bad start for the show. If Rick Hunter's superiors had no respect for him, how could we, the viewer, find respect for him? The first few seasons conveyed a bad image for Rick Hunter although I still appreciated the show. If it wasn't for the gorgeous Stepfanie Kramer as Dee Dee McCall, I would have given the first two seasons a miss. So, simply put, when Rick Hunter got more respect, the show became more respectable. And enjoyable.
I hope season four will come out soon. This is where the show just keeps getting better and better. We Hunter fans need to keep voicing our concern for this show or they may just scrub the whole project altogether."

"Hunter, Season Three is selling for the same price as Season One and Two.
The first two seasons were single-sided DVDs, season three has gone to the double-sided disk.
The producer of the Hunter series has increased his profit margin and the consumers, may suffer--I don't have much faith in the quality of double side disks.
Follow-up--I was watching the "Crossfire" episode and lost the sound.
I won't buy anything else on double-sided DVD.

"This season had some of the best episodes in the Hunter series. "High Noon in LA", "Any Second Now" and "Shades" are some of the best! It's great that after all this time Hunter is finally being released on DVD! I just hope it continues and all the seasons are released. Including the couple of new episodes that were filmed and never showed during the hunter revival a couple of years ago!!!"
