Movie Reviews

A great collection of the best Gunsmoke episodes.
Henry-Clyde | North of Nowhere, South of Everywhere, East of The | 06/23/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

""GUNSMOKE" was always a wonderful show, filled with excellent acting and very well-written episodes. This set is not a season set, but it is not just a "best of" collection of episodes either. It goes above and beyond the usual television show DVD release, in that the executives at CBS have put so much time and effort into this project. Not to mention that some of the still living members from the show were (at least at the time of the DVD set's release) still around to provide assistance. All of the episodes look and sound great; everything is in absolutely perfect condition, including the writing of the episodes, which is still entertaining as ever. This show will hopefully always be around to entertain its old and new dedicated fans. Below is a list of episodes contained in this 3-disc set.
