This review is not on the content but rather the pricing. This was the season that took place during the writers strike. (The writers even poke fun at themselves in a returning episode when they call themselves “lazy fat cats”.)

My issue is why would I pay same amount on past season’s DVD sets with full episode lineups when this one has half. I just cannot bring myself to do it. The extras are not worth that much.

Great Season (which includes the outstanding ‘A Very Supernatural Christmas’).

One huge complaint with the Blu-ray edition: There is no menu — other than a pop-up, which can only be accessed after the first episode of each disc is already playing. Very annoying if you’re looking to play a specific episode. Unlike the DVDs of Seasons 1 & 2 (which go straight to the main menu, offering a list of the episodes featured on each disc), the Blu-ray discs of Season 3 begin to play the first episode straight off, forcing you to have to hit pause, then bring up the pop-up menu to find the episode you’re looking for.

My 1 star rating is for the poor BD trasnfer only, the show itself is Amazing, one of the best out there

right now! And, for that, such a great amazing show deserved a much better transfer.

The picture quality it’s just a little bit better than the standard DVD image.

This is an outrage! I’m disappointed!

As much as I love the show and would naturally give it top marks, the blu-ray menu is buggered. You cannot select individual episodes, and the menu button will only take you into the extras menu, with no way to go elsewhere other than back to the episode it thinks you’re watching. You want episode six on disc one, fast forward and skip through the first five. Yes, it really is that bad!

I pre-ordered mine, maybe early sets were screwed up and later runs were fixed? If anyone has them on blu-ray and they have proper access to the episodes, please shout and let me know Warner have fixed their mistake. Hopefully I’d be able to get them to swap these duff ones for what the product should have been, and then give this product the five stars the show deserves.

As for this season itself, it’s excellent. Good script, acting and themes, plus the duo’s humor, make this one hell of a show.

UPDATE: After looking around online I’ve discovered that perhaps the menu isn’t broken, but someone took the brain-dead decision to not implement episode selection from the main menu. However, when you have an episode playing, selecting the pop-up menu will let you jump to another episode. I’d bump the star rating up to 3 with this information, but review editing doesn’t currently allow for a change :(

Roll on season 5!
