Laramie: The west at its best

"If you love westerns, you'll love Laramie, the Final Season.
Just in time for the show's 5oth anniversary, fans are treated to thirty-two full color western adventures featuring heroes/buddies Slim Sherman (played by John Smith) and Jess Harper (played by Robert Fuller), who together run a ranch and stagecoach relay station in Wyoming. This classic western aired for four seasons, 1959/60-1962/63.
Filled with action, a touch of humor, a wonderful cast with superb chemistry, great supporting characters (housekeeper Daisy Cooper, orphan Mike Williams, Sheriff Mort Cory, driver Mose and more), and a first class group of guest stars (including some of the best villains in the business like LQ Jones and Jan Merlin): Laramie hits the target dead center for westerns.
Season Four contains some of the series best episodes, especially for fans of Mr. Fuller as Jess Harper, the iconic loner/gunfighter who finds a fresh start and a makeshift family at the Sherman Ranch.
I watched this show as a young child, and was delighted at how well it's held up over five decades.
Although this set doesn't have any bonus interviews like that of Mr. Fuller in the Season Three DVD set, it's still a delightful return to the heydey of the western, and a TV series many consider the best of the genre.
Saddle up and hit the trail with Slim and Jess -- you won't be disapppointed!"
Disappointed with this one

My wife purchased this for me for Christmas and we just got around to viewing the first episode last night. One reason I wanted this set was it was in color but the colors are very faded/ washed and the sound quality is terrible also. I have black and white DVD sets from older shows than this that are much better quality. The price for this was way too much for the quality; this is very disappointing."

"While it's great to have this set - I assumed - incorrectly - that it had been worked on - this doesn't appear to be the case.
The colour seeps in places and fuzzy at times as well - these are minor quibbles - for a series I have not seen in years - as I said - I'm pleased to have the chance to view and own this DVD set - just don't expect it to be perfect"

"well the production house ensured that they packaged the best series without any remastering and gave you GARBAGE .They should be sued for murdering such a beautiful tv western.However i am ready to forgive if they re-release it after remastering and i shall buy it again."
