6 New Episodes in a Tin !

"I almost passed on this item thinking it was a re-release of some of the episodes put out by Timeless on their box set in November 2007.
For those unaware, Timeless have a licence to issue some older NBC material which the parent company would not consider releasing.The deal does not cover prints which Timeless have to source for themselves, usually 16mm.Do not,therefore,expect the crystal clear quality & restoration evident on similar releases from the larger studios.
As mentioned a box set of 24 episodes appeared in late 2007.It seems six more prints have now been obtained & they all appear here,together with two episodes from the previous set.
'The Restless Gun' stars John Payne as Vint Bonner,a slightly weary & wandering ex-gunfighter.His reputation often precedes him & he has to reluctantly call on his old gunfighter skills from time to time.Payne is excellent in the lead & fans of the genre should be entertained.
Unusually this set comes in a tin with an embossed picture on the lid.Inside are two standard Amray cases with the eight episodes.
Picture quality is perfectly watchable and on a par with the previous release.If you have that set you will know what to expect, if not this makes an interesting introduction to the series."
Six new episodes & 2 re-runs

"I was thrilled that Timeless Media video released more 8 episodes of the Restless Gun HOWEVER, who ever chose the episodes thought it was a good idea to include 2 that were already released in the 2007 twenty four episode box set - how stupid is that? One would think that, out of the original 78 episodes of this series (with 54 OTHER unreleased episodes to choose from), that there would be 8 DIFFERENT episodes in this set --- but NOOOOOOO. The 2 that are the reruns are: The Outlander and The Way Back. The NEW episodes are: Ride with the Devil, Lady by Law, The New Sheriff, The Whip, Dragon for a Day and Tomboy.
Still worth the price and it's in a nice tin box."
