2.0 out of 5 stars The Dogs have lost their bite, 1 July 2013
This review is from: Mad Dogs - Series 3 [DVD] (DVD)
Mad Dogs Season 3 unfortunately falls into that category of seasons where the it's milked for all it's worth. Season 1 was electric, brutal, unpredictable and a triumph for Sky. Season 2 was more of the same with more mysterious characters in a new location with added suspense. Season 3 is just.... tame. For all the tension and madness that was in previous seasons (remember, it's MAD dogs), none of it occurs here (apart from a long overdue 5 minutes in the final episode). It feels like an epilogue after the madness, all of which could have been done in 90 minutes.

The first episode occurs directly after season 2 and the second episode is two years later. I honestly have to say that in the latter three episodes not much really happens. So many side plots begin including tribes, blackmail and more and yet they just disappear or are mentioned in passing. It almost feels like a study in the character's relationships with each other than the crazy action adventure of the previous years, and that's it's problem, it's so out of sync.

I really wanted to like season 3 and it comes off worse because the first two seasons were so good, but I really could have passed on this. If you loved season 1 and/or season 2, just be aware it's tamer, less action packed and missing it's bite.

Sky have confirmed there will be two more episodes in the new year (2013/2014).

yes, that sums it up really. I was way over the top and felt like Sky cashing in on the success of the previous 2 series. With the quality of the actors this series felt like a bit of a waste. It had it's moments and a few laughs, but I felt that it was a waste of 3 or so hours of my life. Shame really.

I agree with you except that I thought Season 2 was already on a serious downhill skid from Season 1.
