The 23 episodes of season 3 on this five-disc set present more deliciously bizarre situations for the problem-solving sleuths: cannibalism, snuff movies, dwarfs, death while drag racing, bodies falling from the sky, and various dismemberments all tax the team's acumen. These are all double or multiple-case episodes, though in a characteristic trick of the writing sometimes apparently unrelated murders turn out to be connected (or vice versa, as in "Blood Lust," in which a road-accident victim is not what he seems, and the death of the driver at the hands of an angry mob is made all the more tragic). The mix of genuine forensic science with the glossiest Jerry Bruckheimer production values, plus the virtues of a good ensemble cast headed by William Peterson's modern-day Sherlock Holmes, remains as compelling as ever. --Mark Walker
Can't wait for season 4
bring it on
I seriously doubt any viewer needs a recommendation from me or others to be motivated to buy this DVD set. Primarily I was compelled to question another reviewer's accusation that 4 "reruns" were included in this third season set. Where did he get THAT? If you check the season episode finder for the first two seasons, which the reviewer says he has, you'll find no such repeats. Has he been watching broadcast episodes and now calls them reruns? That's pretty funny!
Anyway, this is a terrific set to continue the fascination most of us feel for the series! Buy it and enjoy.
