5.0 out of 5 stars Lots of fun for fans of '80's tv March 5 2008
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Riptide: The Third and Final Season Feb. 18 2008
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!

5.0 out of 5 stars 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!

5.0 out of 5 stars Memory lane Jan. 7 2009
By MCF - Published on Amazon.com

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.

I enjoyed it. Brought back a lot of old memories. Wish that there were more seasons to the series. I still have my favorites. I even started a novel with the characters in it.
