Editorial Reviews

The Cartwright's thousand-square-mile Ponderosa Ranch is located near Virginia City, Nevada, site of the Comstock Silver Lode, during and after the Civil War. Each of the sons was born to a different wife of Ben's; with none of the mothers still alive. Join Ben (Lorne Greene), Adam (Pernell Roberts), Hoss (Dan Blocker) and Little Joe (Michael Landon) as they rewrite the book on the western genre. These were the days where family values and the fight for justice were backed up by six-guns that always had right on their side. Included in this set are three bonus episodes of the classic TV western Wagon Train.

    It doesn't have the original music of the Bonanza theme song.
    Sandra K. Mcclaflin
    I don't care what anyone else says, if the package advertises a certain tv show or a certain movie, I want the original content in its entirety as I remember it.
    Fourlocks
    One of the best western TV shows ever made, possibly THE best.

    The correct title should have been "Uncopy-righted Episodes of Bonanza". Obviously, Mill Creek didn't want to pay any royalties so even the theme song was substituted with a cheesy recording of the company owner's brother strumming a guitar (just my guess). My poor review is not a slight against the Bonanza series. These are actually excellent. I just feel duped because I can pull these epsidoes down off the Internet for free.

    BONANZA, one of the earliest series filmed in color, was a Sunday night tradition for fourteen seasons on the NBC-TV network. Even when being bounced around the weekly schedule (the show aired on Saturdays, Sundays and Tuesdays over the years), this family-style oater always got good ratings. The stars were Lorne Greene, Pernell Roberts, Michael Landon and Dan Blocker (although Roberts chose to leave less than halfway through the show's 14 season run).

    The BEST OF BONANZA DVD box set is a terrific package of classic TV westerns. You get 25½ hours of programming for one great low price. This MILL CREEK collection consists of four single-sided dual layer DVDs. There's 31 BONANZA episodes here and three WAGON TRAIN shows. The list of prominent actors who appeared in these (primarily) 1960 programs is quite extensive (see below).

    The BEST OF BONANZA is most definitely for all fans of early television and especially TV westerns.

    The following list includes 1 to 10 poll ratings found a film website, also season/episode/airdate and guest stars for each show,

    DISC ONE--
    (7.2) The Gunmen (S.1, #19 - 1/23/60) - Ellen Corby/Dorothy Crehan/King Donovan
    (7.5) The Fear Merchants (S.1, #20 - 1/30/60) - Philip Ahn/Gregg Barton/Alexander Campbell
    (7.7) The Spanish Grant (S.1, #21 - 2/6/60) - Salvador Baguez/Holly Bane/Sebastian Cabot
    (6.8) Blood on the Land (S.1, #22 - 2/13/60) - Ray Daly/Glenn Holtzman/Everett Sloane
    (7.8) Desert Justice (S.1, #23 - 2/20/60) - Claude Akins/Tom Greenway/Ron Hayes
    (???) The Stranger (S.1, #24 - 2/27/60) - Hal Baylor/Lloyd Nolan/Elizabeth York
    (6.8) Escape to Ponderosa (S.1, #25 - 3/5/60) - Chris Alcaide/Dayton Lummis/Joe Maross
    (8.0) The Avenger (S.

    The other reviews here are spot-on. The faux theme music sounds like something from a bad spaghetti western. The picture is a bit choppy at times, but that's what you get when you cram eight or nine episodes of an hour-long show onto a SINGLE-SIDED DVD! Yes, these are single-sided, so you can image the compression that was required.

    And yet, for the price I would glady endure all that, if the silly discs would actually play. I've tried three separate copies, Discs 1 and 3 won't play properly in any of them. (The ones stored above another disc in the overlapping clamshell box. Coincidence? Maybe, since no scratches are visible.) Shame on Mill Creek for putting out such a poor product.

    You can get these same 31 episode for a little more coin in a more reliable set, try: Bonanza 8-DVD Pack

    I was disappointed in this set. Some of the tracking on the disks is poor and the awful theme music is different than the series. This wonderful series deserves better.

    Format: DVD
    I should have been suspicious when I saw how many episodes were contained in this collection on only four discs. I really began to wonder when I opened the plastic case to find first of all that the four ONE-SIDED discs are put into paper envelopes that fit into a square recess and are not secured at all. While this is bad enough, what is even worse is what I found when I began to watch "The Gunman" on Disc 1. First of all, the Bonanza theme is nowhere to be found and is replaced by some crummy irrelevent music. Why I asked myself would they do that? I had a suspicion. As I watched "The Gunmen", especially as I neared the end of the episode, I realized why the original theme wasn't used and why the episode seemed off. The episode had been cut for time! The "Romeo and Juliet" part of the episode where the son or daughter of one family secretly meets with the son or daughter of the other family they are feuding against is gone. The scene where the two fathers go into the saloon to drink to their reconciliation is split into wipes to meld it all together so that it runs shorter. At this point I turned the DVD off before it had a chance to further turn my stomach. What the heck? I have watched another collection of Bonanza episodes that was lent to me in the past and none of this foolishness took place. The theme was there in its glory. All of the episodes were in their entirety. How in the heck do you cut a show that had no nudity, no swearing and only network-approved violence? Easy, you're an idiot! I don't care what anyone else says, if the package advertises a certain tv show or a certain movie, I want the original content in its entirety as I remember it. Period. I will accept nothing less.Read more ›

    While I was thrilled at the prospect of having so many Bonanza episodes at one time, the sound quality is poor on one of the discs despite turning the volume up all the way on the television, and there is much freezing and skipping. This is a poor tribute to a great series. The great Westerns like Bonanza and Big Valley (to name but 2), need to be available in high quality DVDs - by season. Big Valley has made a start in this direction and Bonanza needs to be available as well.
