While not a lot like it's namesake, the Magnificent Seven series was worth watching. It was entertaining and enjoyable and needs to be seen again.

"First, a review of the series itself: 5 gigantic gold, gleaming stars. I caught a few re-run episodes on Encore Westerns and fell in love instantly. Amazing cast, phenomenal acting, great sets, and no gore. It achieves that delicate balance of drama and adventure of the genre without the violence and sex that plagues most modern movies/show today. I really credit whoever cast the series because each actor shines in his role and their personalities play off each other perfectly. I am saddened that the series was cut off after two (all too short) seasons and was floored when I heard that it only came back a second year after an intense fan campaign. Once again primtime networks don't know a truly good show when they see it.
So why 4 stars? I was very disappointed at the picture quality of the DVDs. In the age of digital media when consumers are seeking crystal clear imaging, this set has the graininess of a VHS. Acceptable for an old show of the 60's or 70's, but one that aired in 1999? No way. The quality of the current TV re-runs far exceedes these DVDs. Apparently this is just a re-packaging of the individually sold seasons so I can't imagine that purchasing them separately would be any improvement.
That said, don't pass up the series on that account. Better to have it available with a sub-quality picture than not have it it all. The subperb show itself far outweighs this one downfall and I look forward to re-watching both seasons again and again."
Worth every penny

"How did I miss this when it was on tv?
This is a wonderful western. I have loved every minute of it.
First, there is the eye candy that is very lovely to look at. Wouldn't it be great to live in a west with men who looked and acted like this LOL?
Second, it has little bad language and the gore factor is nil. I realize that a real-life cowboy in a gunfight would not say, "Oh dang!!", but I get the idea. I know that in a real gunfight, knifefight or fistfight there will be blood, guts and broken bones, but I don't really want to watch it happen. I realize that in real life the "ladies of the night" wouldn't be beautiful and sweet, but I don't really want to see the real thing.
My tv shows are my escape FROM life. And this one has succeeded wonderfully.
It is worth every penny plus more.
This is a show that I will be rewatching.

If you love westerns; you'll love this series. Seven men, with backstories of their own, who tame a town and gain the respect of it's citizens. The casting was great and each character played well off each other. You could see the brotherhood even though each man had his own cross to bear. The stories were well written, and I found myelf loving the way the 7 garnered respect and fear from those who simply heard of their reputation. They weren't always hard men, and they weren't always right; the show gives you the gritty look of the old west, the hardships and what it took to make it through a day sometimes.
You want to sit back and watch a good series; another series that should have had a longer shelf life, then buy this series and enjoy. There are so many little things to see, as one character is checking his gun and he flips it over his hands several times before slipping into his gun belt. Not a big scene, just something you catch and it's way cool. The Western Channel marathoned it this past Saturday......but I bought it because anyday it's worth watching again! I gave it 5 stars although it had seven and I recommend it to anyone who likes a good western
