UPDATE - as you'll see by the review date, this review was published circa 5 yrs before the new '5-0' season 3 release - these comments, therefore, relate to season 3 of the original show only - for some reason, Amazon migrates reviews for old versions of shows with new ones.
As with the season 2 DVD release, the back of the box states that some episodes are cut, which, sadly they are, to a certain extent at least. For some reason, the opening titles used here, just like with season 2, are the titles from the 1st season i.e. when James McArthur appears it lists him as Danny, it should read James McArthur as Dan Williams - strangely though, they're using the correct arrangement of the theme, so I'm lost as to why these shows have been edited this way. That aside, in general, the quality of these prints is, again, excellent. However, despite being remastered, there are a couple of episodes which lack the sharpness and vibrant colours of that of episodes from the first two seasons - there is, at times, noticeable 'dirt' on some of the episodes, something which was pretty much absent from the DVD releases of season 1 and 2. The only extras included are the episodic promotions; you only have to watch these for proof that each episode has been remastered in some fashion. In short, this is classic television and for me this season nicely consolidates the grounding the show established in seasons 1 and 2. Now bring on season 4 and the start of the truly halcyon era this show enjoyed.
