(4 out of 5 stars)

"This dvd has two discs with a total of 8 episodes. A snap case and double sided.[Brentwood home video] Episodes are,Disc 1 side A.1. Escape to Ponderosa.2. The Ape.Disc 1 side B.1. The Bloodline.2. Death at Dawn.Disc 2 side A.1. Blood on the Land.2. Badge withouit Honor.Disc 2 side B.1. Day of Reckoning.2. Desart JusticeThe sound and picture is very good you can hear clearly and see clearly but the bad thing is how many times are they going to re..release the same episodes over and over again???Features are,choose sceen and the story of Bonanza.If you don't have these episodes on dvd or vhs do buy this one, because of the picture and sound it's worth the money.I bought this in a video store just a short time ago and I couldn't pass it up so I thought I'd pass some info to other amazon buyers."
Excellent two disc set of Bonanza !

(5 out of 5 stars)

"On these DVDs are 8 very entertaining episodes (on two double-sided discs) from the first two seasons of Bonanza, they are:1. Escape To The Ponderosa.
2. The Ape
3. The Bloodline
4. Death At Dawn
5. Blood On The Land
6. Badge Without Honor
7. Day Of Reckoning
8. Desert Justice.The visual quality of these 8 episodes is excellent, the audio quality is also very good. More importantly, the original Bonanza theme is featured on these DVDs, which is important as some other companies releasing Bonanza on DVD (such as Platinum Disc and Madacy) feature a generic western theme. The Ape features a young Leonard Nimoy in an early role 6 years before achieving fame as Spock in Star Trek, you can also catch a young Claude Akins in Desert Justice as a U.S. Marshall.While watching these episodes it occurred to me that the late Lorne Greene seemed born to play Ben Cartwright, he is so good in that role, Michael Landon, Pernell Roberts, and Dan Blocker are also very good in roles that seemed to be tailor-made for them.In short, if you're a true Bonanza fan, you can't go wrong with this DVD set!"

"Sitting watching these episodes of Bonanza took me back in time, to when westerns were the best thing on television. I will keep on purchasing as many westerns as I can. My collection is growing. Lorne Green was one of my favourite male actors."
