Fast and furious on the heels of Season Two's release [October, '07] VEI announced the decision to come out with Season Three -- the final for 'Riptide'. First off, a *MASSIVE* "thank you!" to VEI!! 'Riptide' fans have been dreaming, wishing and hoping for the show to come out on DVD for years. It has, thanks to you, and we *really* appreciate you bringing the Boys to us in startling clarity and sound!

It's a pity that for the release onto dvd you lose key things -- the accompanying music to the show being the main one [and the reason for only four stars]. VEI's been consistent in that manner and there's no change for the third and final season. Fans lose what quite possibly is known as the best emotional scene of the whole season and also just as possibly, the entire series -- Nick sitting despondently in the back of a cargo plane that's carrying the remains of a brother of war home to be buried. 'Home For Christmas'. Any 'Riptide' fan can instantly picture the scene and hear the haunting music of John and Yoko singing "Happy Christmas (War is Over)" in the background. That song just... fit. There's no other way to explain it. The scene is there, the song is not and it's such a huge loss to not have them both together. And to not have other songs that just 'fit' on other episodes -- "The Famous Final Scene" for Cody and Janet's last scenes in 'Smiles We Left Behind' being another huge loss. The scenes are still there, don't get me wrong, but they lose a great deal of impact without the music that used to accompany them.

My only wish, other than having the original music back, is that VEI would have taken the time, considered the scene and had music and vocals that were a bit more meaningful and supportive of those scenes. But, sometimes there has to be compromise and that's what this fan has done. In the end, I'm still extremely grateful to VEI for releasing the whole series onto DVD. It's about time, and THANK YOU again!

I loved this show when it was on in the 80's & it was fun to watch it as an adult now. This set is for fans of 80's t.v. only & it was great to have the whole series released. Missed some extras though -- ie: interviews from cast members today would have been fun but it was a good set. Enjoy the break from reality tv.

Thank you to "VEI" for releasing all three seasons QUICKLY! Feb. 26 2008
By J. McDonald - Published on Amazon.com

VEI proves once again that they care about the fans! All three seasons of Riptide, released QUICKLY! For comparison, Sony released only the first season of Riptide, and I'd be willing to bet that's the only release you'll see from them! Anyone purchasing Riptide on DVD should NOT PURCHASE the Sony release of season one. If a DVD releasing company does not support the fans, we should not support THEM!

Riptide season three;

The final season, featuring 22 episodes and such notable guest stars as; Richard Hatch (Battlestar Galactica), Jane Badler (V), Cesar Romero (Batman), Barbi Benton (Playboy), Steve Allen (The Steve Allen Show), and many more!

Now, I can't wait for "Stingray" to be released! Another great Stephen J, Cannell creation!

I would love to see VEI re-release all of the Stephen J. Cannell TV series that Anchor Bay ruined. Even if they could not restore all of the original music, I'm sure almost ANYONE could do a better job releasing "Hunter", "21 Jump Street", and "the Greatest American Hero". Anchor Bay basically RUINED each one of those series with HORRIBLE edits and pathetic music replacements! I realize that VEI has also changed SOME music on Riptide, but they have done a far better job than Anchor Bay ever did! VEI also QUICKLY released all three seasons of Hardcastle and McCormick, unedited!

Three cheers for VEI, I hope they're listening!

I loved when this show was on. I use to wait each week for a new one. Now I just pop in the dvds and watch. Whats going to be sad is when I get to the last show in season 3.

Memory lane Jan. 7 2009

I ordered this set because I enjoyed the show when it aired in the 80's and I already had the first season. It was alot of fun watching again. I watched the entire set in one weekend. I had remembered the Christmas show when it first aired and was a little disappointed that they changed the final song on the DVD from what aired on TV. It was John Lennon's "War is over" on TV which made the ending so memorable. Every time I hear that song since I think of that episode but the DVD had some terrible song but the episode was still good. Glad I got it.
Saddly, the Last Season for RipTide! Nov. 6 2008
By 21st Century MAC Fan - Published on Amazon.com

I really enjoyed all three seasons! But for some reason, they killed off Lt. Quinlan, who survived first two seasons, then replaced him with sexy blonde cop who is a lot more cooperative with the 3 RipTide Detectives. You always wonder what went on behind the scenes when series replaces a main character.. did actor hold out for too much money? Sagging ratings? Who knows.. but it seemed kind of stilted, since he was hit by a DE-celerating car, and in many similar stunts in show, other characters were hit a lot harder, and always seemed to get up and walk away! It's regretable this was the last season, as I really enjoyed this show!

A Kid's Review - Published on Amazon.com
I grew up watching this show in the mid-1980's and when I saw it on Amazon, I knew I had to purchase it. I mean who could honestly tell me they wouldn't sit and watch Joe Penny. He was always my favorite, I loved all the characters but there was just something about Joe's sexy grin, and how emotional he was in the episode about his high school reunion. I personally wish there were shows on today like they had back in the 1980's and 1990's. And more of them should be brought to DVD.
