Movie Reviews

Same PREVIOUSLY released episodes--just different packaging.

"I'm giving this set 1 star, because the item description doesn't give detail on show titles. I really would love to get my hands on more Bonanza episodes, however, this set is just a repeat of previously released Bonanza shows on dvd sets/collection :o(

Good thing I did my homework before purchasing (and of course I WILL NOT be purchasing this one, as I have the 20 Best Episodes and Best of vol. 1), may I recommend that you please do the same (check the titles BEFORE buying this set)...to save you some time and money and FRUSTRATION, I've posted ALL of the show titles for FOUR popular and separate Bonanza sets/collections on dvd.


The Bonanza Collection features:
Disc One:
The Courtship
Denver McKee
The Gunmen

Disc Two:
Avenger
Last Trophy
Desert Justice

Disc Three:
The Ape
The Blood Line
Showdown

Disc Four:
Blood on the Land
Badge Without Honor
Death At Dawn

Disc Five:

Running Time: 12 hours 15 minutes
******************

The Best of Bonanza, Vol. 1 (Cheaper still)

This DVD contains the following episodes:
Mr. Henry Comstock,
Death on Sun Mountain,
The Saga of Annie O'Toole,
Paiute War,
Enter Mark Twain,
The Crucible,

I hope this help you choose a Bonanza set wisely not get ripped off by buying a set that contains the EXACT episodes you've already purchased, just put in different packaging.

As soon as a Bonanza DVD set comes out that contain NEW episodes, I'll be one of the first to buy it--and with JOY! Until then...I can only hope and pray that a (TRULY) new Bonanza DVD set will be released soon, INSTEAD of more rehashed (previously released) episodes with new covers or packaging."
My recommendation to get the real Bonanza
Stefani Beer | 01/28/2006
(1 out of 5 stars)

"For those of you, who have an all region dvd-player go to AMAZON.de (Germany) there you will find the complete !!! first season with 32 episode digitally picture and sound remastered and w i t h the original theme song !!!! Wonderful. It is in German and English, so no problem."
Wrong Theme Song
Conrad Sigona | Newport, NY USA | 12/26/2005
(1 out of 5 stars)

"If having the correct Bonanza theme music is important to your enjoyment of the episodes, don't buy this. The theme is replaced by different music. I've read elsewhere that the rights to the music and the episodes are separate, so cheap versions have replacement music. This is one such cheap version."
I agree: get the German Season One version...
John Robinson | Yokohama, Kanagawa Japan | 02/18/2006
(1 out of 5 stars)

"...I have it and it's great! The original music, etc. Of course, there is an English option so it is just like watching an American version (except there is no American Season One!).

The menu, though in German, is easy to navigate. Of course, all the sound, etc, is in the original English if you choose the English option.

Just saw episode one: classic! Just wonderful."
