Thought it's achieved immortality in the hearts of its devoted fans, the supernatural-themed series Forever Knight ends with this third-season set, which brings the saga of vampire-turned-sleuth Nick Knight (Geraint Wyn Davies of 24) to a startling conclusion. Change seems to be the theme of the third season (1995-96), which sees the departure of much-loved sidekick Schanke (John Kapelos) under violent circumstances (as detailed in the two-part season opener, "Black Buddha"), and the arrival of a new partner, Tracy Vetter (Lisa Ryan), who's involved with another creature of the night, Vachon (Ben Bass). Further complicating matters are the return of Nick's former lover Janette (Deborah Duchene), who reveals a surprising twist of her own in "The Human Factor," and Divia (Kathryn Long), the daughter of Knight's mentor/nemesis LaCroix (Nigel Bennett), in "Ashes to Ashes." But of course, the biggest wrinkle of the third season is Nick's struggle to resist his vampiric urges; this conflict, along with the fates of most of the major characters, come to a head with the series closer, "Last Knight," which still packs a punch with its dramatic (some might say drastic) denouement. Blood, romance, mystery, and death--all things that make for an addictive series, and all major elements of Forever Knight's final season, which certainly accounts for the show's long-lasting cult appeal. The five-disc set includes all 22 episodes of the third season, and is rounded out by a trio of appropriately dark and evocative music videos created from series footage. --Paul Gaita

4.0 out of 5 stars The last season... Jan. 6 2012
By D. Bertram TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
This dvd set completes the trilogy. This series had various leads come and go, but the main 2 vampires lasted through the series. My wife and I found the series to be wrapped up reasonably well, the stories were well written and acted.
I had not seen many of the episodes for many years and they were not too dated, as long as you didn't compare vehicles and downtown Toronto to that of today..(2012) It was nice to see the A&A's and SAM'S lights again..
Before there was Buffy, True Blood or Twilight, this series told stories that involved people vampires and events rather than teen angst or vampire lore. The time flashbacks were used to develop the current stories and charactor development not to show off the techno-wizardry like a lot of todays shows.

5.0 out of 5 stars If you have parts 1 and 2, you HAVE to get 3. Dec 29 2009

Yes, some of the characters changed and some would say it jumped the shark by getting rid of Jennette, introducing a new (hotter) vampire and making LaCroix less bad, but Jennette does appear in one show. There is an end to the series, though and I think it's a good one, so if nothing else, this will wrap things up for you.

It was a good series, even though it suffered from some acting glitches now and again. The writing and execution of that writing was always impeccable, in my opinion. Each show always made you think.

Third season was not as good as season 1 & 2, by this point they had done away with much of the original cast, but still a fun show to watch. If you watched the first two seasons, you have to watch this and see how it all ends, as well as how much of it began, and the return of a beloved character. Enjoy, I did. :)

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed Aug. 6 2010
By luckystar2 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
I was a huge fan of FOREVER KNIGHT and was sad and very disappointed to see it end. I'm glad that it's now on DVD, but I still have one major problem. The first two seasons are being sold here for about fifteen dollars a piece. The finally season, as I'm sure others have noted, is over one hundred!
What's up with this? Perhaps there is some bonus material that makes it worth the high price that I'm not aware of?
I love shopping at amazon. I generally get really good deals here, but until or unless the price is soon lowered for the last season of FOREVER KNIGHT, I won't be able to afford to buy it.
Please amazon, help us out here!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Final Season... July 4 2007
By D. S. Thurlow - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
In its third season, cult favorite "Forever Knight" continues a fine tradition of excellent, even thought-provoking storytelling while concluding the saga of Nick Knight, 13th Century vampire and 20th Century Toronto homicide detective.

In the opening double episode of the season, "Black Buddha", a deranged bomber destroys an airliner leaving Toronto, precipitating a major shakeup in the cast of "Forever Knight." Knight's partner and his precinct captain are killed in the crash. Knight's new partner is Tracy Vetter, an inexperienced and often impulsive detective whose father happens to be police commissioner. Her arrival allows an interesting plot twist. Tracy falls in love with the boyishly charming vampire Vashon, but remains unaware that Nick is also a vampire, leading to a series of humorously ironic situations, notably in the episode "My Boyfriend is a Vampire.".

Season Three continues the themes of the series. Nick hungers for redemption and struggles with the guilt of 800 years of killing. He continues to work through a complicated relationship with police coroner and close confidant Natalie Lambert. Their love for each other will come to drive several episodes and the ending of the series.

As in Seasons One and Two, actions relentlessly have consequences; Nick's life is repeatedly made complex by his struggle to balance his vampire nature against his instinct to act for good. Nick's tendency to resort to his vampire abilities to solve crime sometimes complicates the cases or threatens the intended moral outcome.

Nick's vampire mentor LaCroix plays a large role, continuing his delicate wrestling match with Natalie for Nick's soul while sometimes bailing Nick out of trouble. Nick will try to return the favor when LaCroix faces his own long estranged and vengeful vampire mentor in "Ashes to Ashes".

Jeanette, Nick's fellow vampire and sometime lover from the first two seasons, has "moved on" but resurfaces in "The Human Factor" to validate Nick's search for his lost humanity and to offer a seeming alternate pathway back to it.

As all good things must come to an end, so does the season and the series. In the dramatic "Last Knight", Nick resolves his relationships with Vetter, LaCroix and Natalie. The ending is one every fan of the series will want to watch.

Season Three is highly recommended to fans of "Forever Knight" as the final 22 episodes of a series that managed to be highly entertaining and often thoughtful despite a limited budget. Extras for the third season DVD set include three music videos.

5.0 out of 5 stars Five stars for the series but ..... March 3 2007
By Jeanne Tassotto - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
less for the packaging.

This is the third and sadly, final season for the series. Nick's life in Toronto is beginning to end as the series opens. In the first episode both his partner and boss are replaced and not for the better. In the vampire world Janette has moved on. Nick's new partner, Tracey Vetter, a rather annoyingly perky young woman has stumbled upon the existence of vampires, a secret that she is intent on keeping from Nick. As the season progresses the stories do improve, particularly those involving Tracey and Vachon, 'her' vampire. The stories are interesting and well done for the most part.

The final episode is compelling but will certainly cause fans of the series to scream 'no' and frantically search for a loophole.

The downside to this set, besides being the final episodes, is the lack of extras. Commentaries by actors, writers, series creators etc. would have been greatly appreciated and are conspicously absent. An explanation of the reasoning behind the ending in particular would have been of great interest. Instead all that is offered are some music videos of songs that were featured in the series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Forever Knight: Season 3 March 9 2007
By Roger M. Longo - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is one of the better TV series in the horror genre and can be compared to such classic series as Have Gun Will Travel and Kung Fu. There are elements of Have Gun Will Travel in the shows in terms of philosophical musings on the part of the character LeCroix. The central character, Nick Knight is driven by the tension between the intrinsicly violent, sociopathic nature of a vampire and the vestages of humanity that remain within him. His role as a police officer becomes the focus for this tension and can be seen as what psychologists might refer to as reaction formation. As a police officer he is repressing the violent and criminal tendencies in others who threaten the social fabric while, at the same time, trying to cope with his own plight reinforced by is idealistic views. Nick Knight's idealism is cast against LeCroix's (Nick's unwanted mentor) dark pessimistic views of human nature. This point is underscored in the season and series finale. In the final analysis this series is a classic by virtue of the intelligent scripts that attempt to grapple with larger philosophical questions. In this regard there are also parallels with the classic series Kung Fu starring David Caradine as Kane. Both Kane and Nick Night exist on the cusp of a moral delemma regarding human nature and violence, although the resolutions are quite different. I can recommend Seasons one, two, and three of Forever Knight (I have purchased all of them and I am pleased with the product) for those who have enjoyed Have Gun Will Travel (an excellent series - DVDs for the three available seasons well worth the purchase) and Kung Fu (also an excellent series with the three seasons worth owning).

4.0 out of 5 stars OwnWorthy! its a classic! Jan. 26 2007
By That Review Guy - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
one of the first vampire series with some interesting storylines (and a few oddities here and there) and since this is season one you usually wouldnt expect much but since I have seen and OWN the trilogy I can tell you season 1 and 3 are all thats really needed for the full story unless you are a die hard fan like me and have to have em all. some of the best features in this set are the episodes with nick attempting to become human yet again and the finale with nick having to bear the decision on whether or not to turn his friend, his love, Into A Vampire! so be sure to buy this set if you buy season one.the reason I say pt 3 is needed is because it has the END conclusion to the story and even though it wasn't what i'd hoped it would be it was, and always will be my Favorite older vamp series that didnt need big buget special effects to win you over.
