Great TV Show, but they need to start releasing seasons or a

"I'm 21 years old and have grown up watching old westerns such as Bonanza, Gunsmoke, Laramie, Big Valley and Wagon Train. Out of those five, Bonanza is my second favorite (Gunsmoke is my first). I have a lot of Bonanza DVD's and all of them have episodes the others have. As much as I like Bonanza, I will not buy anymore DVD's unless they are season sets or have different episodes. This set has the same exact episodes that all of the other Bonanza DVD's that have been released in the past have. I don't understand why they keep releasing the same episodes over and over again. All they are doing is changing the covers of the DVD cases.
Now if there is someone who doesn't have these episodes, let me tell you they are great episodes and you wont regret buying them. But if you are like me, who have these episodes on other sets, then don't waste your money.
I give Bonanza five stars and usually I give the DVD's that have been released five stars. This one I am giving three stars because of the fact that these episodes are already out there on numerous Bonanza sets.
They need to start with the seasons sets now and if for what ever reason they can't do season sets, I understand but at least release different episodes that people don't have."
Good episodes, but the same as other releases

This is a good selection of episodes if you've never purchased any Bonanza discs before, but the must-have set is still The Best of Bonanza, Vol. 1 Artisan/Republic -- which only contains 8 episodes (with the original theme music), but they are eps you won't find elsewhere.
Avoid this Bonanza "collection"!

"All these episodes are missing the opening music and introduction of the stars.
They start out with the title then go into the opening sequence prior to the Bonanza theme and introduction of the stars and guest star and then continues with the rest of the episodes sans the opening music and star introductions and guest star. If you want the original broadcast episodes don't get this. Each episodes quality differs. You have been warned!"
