Amazing Race 3 and 4 coming to DVD

Two more early seasons of the best years of The Amazing Race are coming to DVD soon, as seasons three and four are now available for pre-order on Amazon.com.

You can now pre-order season three, which featured perhaps the most galling break-down in the series’ history, and pre-order season four, which generated minor controversy for identifying gay couple Reichen and Chip as “married” before the time when same-sex couples could marry in the U.S.

The release follows CBS’ pattern of releasing Survivor, which has come to DVD slowly, a couple seasons at a time. In January, Amazing Race’s second season was released, following the release of seasons one and seven earlier.

Review: Married at First Sight

Marriage At First Sight

In an era of Tinder and Grindr, instant acceptance or dismissal of a potential partner, or instant sex with another body, Married at First Sight offers the thrill of watching strangers deal with the very basics of relationships.

Beyond the headline-grabbing premise, the series has turned out to be a stripped-down, authentic exploration of something very interesting. Read the full review.
