If you are looking at season 3, chances are you have already watched seasons 1 and 2... well, if that's the case, you'll find that season 3 is the best so far. This is where the chemistry between the three leads was well established, and the writers were given more free reign to explore the characters. This season included some very personal episodes for the first time, including where Bodie is losing his touch (Wild Justice), as personal vengeance gets the better of him. Of course, Cowlie and Doyle rescue him in the end.. Also includes the classic car chase that I remember from my youth, where our fearless duo are bringing a priceless desk to Cowlie and get involved in a high speed car chase (including an unscripted meeting with a kerb) sending the desk to a spectacular demise.
Of course, there's the 80's cheese factor, but this is surprisingly good drama, and has not aged as badly as you think it will have ... Some of the episodes are taut, and some are poignant... although, the one liners at the end of the epsiode are often too quick and convenient to tie up all the loose thoguhts let hanging.
The transfer is crisp for the most part, audio is fine - the extras look good on paper and the mission briefings are worth the read with all their trivia and where are they now comments.., but they are pretty clunky to get through, and oddly blurred and difficult to read at times.
However, this was possibly the pinnacle of The Professionals - if you like them at all, you'll have to have this season. Buckle up!
