Jess Harper--the best character on any western--ever!

"I've put up with dubs of dubs of deteriorating VHS tapes just to see any hint of my favorite all time western when I was growing up. Jess Harper (played to absolute perfection by Robert Fuller) made my just-taking-notice-of-the-opposite-gender heart skip more than a few beats.
I'd love to have ALL four seasons of the series on DVD, but for now I'll happily settle for this one. The distributor notes on screen that all care was taken to make the best possible reproduction of source material, but that some glitches are inevitable. From the episodes I've watched, they succeeded beyond my expectations! Let's face it, there aren't any pristine copies of this series out there any more. And, sadly, no Clint Eastwood star power (note Rawhide's DVD quality) to convince anyone (YET) to remaster the ones that do exist.
Jess Harper--put that man on a horse and I'll still follow him anywhere! (albeit much more slowly than I would have forty years ago!)"
Problems to be corrected!!

"The original release had several technical problems. These are being corrected and the set reissued on 30 March 2009. And having now viewed the set Ihave to agree with others that the video quality is only passable. So what should have been a 4 star release really only offers 2.5 stars value for money."
Good and Bad

"Wish I could give this DVD release a better then a 2-Star Review.
The Characters are interesing especially the leads John Smith and Robert
The stories were well written.
And there is a new interview with Fuller that is well done.
The Bad part is the video itself.
Very grainy. Night scenes are somewhat difficult to make out.
The colors are faded.
The Sound is so-so.
Timeless Media is a hit or miss outfit.
As with The Deputy, LARAMIE misses out on a quality presention. "
Pathetic Video Quality Ruins A Pretty Good Series!

"I can only echo what several other reviewers have said...the video quality here is pathetic! It indeed does look like VHS at the SLP (6 hour) speed. Timeless Media apparently buys the legal rights to put some of these TV series out but good prints or video transfers are not always available from the source (NBC Universal in this case) so TM sometimes has to scrounge whatever prints or videos it can from collectors. They have put out some excellent quality western TV series such as "Tales of Wells Fargo" but this is not one of them. Think the worst of Alpha Video releases and that's what you'll get with this set. Shame on Universal for not providing some source material and shame on Timeless Media for putting this crappy set out with no word about the substandard quality on the packaging!"
