Ah, yes seems time and the memory of the last two seasons helped redeem season 3 somewhat for me. I do remember feeling the magic of the fantastic first two seasons being swapped for as you say an action movie ripoff style. Perhaps I was also more forgiving for the simple matter as I was happy to just be continuing the adventure as well.

The way in which they wrote out John Rhys-Davies effectively took away my favorite part of the show and left me watching every new episode clinging to the hope that the show couldn't take another poor turn, I was disappointed greatly. One piece of solace I have is in S2E08 when the two Professors fight at the end before the slide leaving one left behind in the aftermath it alludes to the original Arturo being the one left behind and is still out there somewhere as the show continues, however that could be my hopeful interpretation.

I was not aware of Peckinpah's "slide" as it were into addiction and is sad his personal battle spilled over into the show. Thank you for taking the time to pen out such a well written response and personal perspective! I'll relish the new insight into a show that meant so much for me when I was younger and still find myself caring about all these years later.

I have my sights on a full set I can fingers crossed get for a reasonable cost. I wont need the extra S3 if the bidding pans out but you are too kind to offer and I might still take you up on it pending said deal also if still on offer of course!

Thanks for the advice ireactions and sorry for the late reply hope your weekend was great!

I think you are right and I'll grab the separate sets to get me started while I still hunt for the complete series. I'll update with my progress if I find the 22 disc set or other pertinent info.

It has been quite some time since I have seen the show and season 3. I'm interested as to why you think S3 is that terrible ireactions. Perhaps it has been too long and I've simply forgotten the horrors.

Greetings all from an old fan of the show!

I am searching for the 22 disc complete series from universal as I have seen the difference between said and the 15 disc set in terms of video compression and packaging. Alas it seems I am quite late to the party and availability has dematerialized sadly one cannot control the onset of nostalgia to coincide with ample stock at times.

Any help in my quest would be treasured! I have checked the usual online retailers, a few local used media shops and am reaching out to universal pictures home entertainment as well.

Thank you for your time and apologies if this post is in the wrong place or format etcetera.
