Editorial Reviews

One of the longest running and most popular of all television westerns, Bonanza was both an action/adventure classic and family drama. For fourteen seasons, audiences enthusiastically tuned in to see the High-Sierra adventures of the Cartwright clan. Nestled amongst the pines above the shores of Lake Tahoe is the Ponderosa ranch, the thousand-acre home of Ben Cartwrignt and his sons, Adam, Hoss and Joe (aka "Little Joe.") Plots featuring revolving cast of interesting guest players helped to set Bonanza apart from the usual gun-slinging formula Westerns of the day.

3.0 out of 5 stars Would have been 5 stars but... August 8, 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Lovers of the original Bonanza will like these episodes. The video is good, the audio is loud & clear, you don't have to turn the volume up like other dvd's but....

That wonderful theme music is missing both at the beginning & at the end - that cost this one star

BUT EVEN WORSE !!! ... (and costing another star)

The Platinum Video people must think it's OK to put their name and a logo in the bottom right of the screen. I DON'T !!!

I hate it on broadcast & cable TV and I wouldn't have bought this if I'd known about the logo.

Platinum Video in on my "no buy list" because of that logo policy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth Waiting For! December 7, 2010
This is classic BONANZA the way it was meant to be -- in a wonderful, new collection well worth waiting for after years of bootleg, unauthorized sets of poorly packaged, inferior quality transfers, lacking the original music and sold in bargain basement bins. The picture and sound quality here is excellent. Every episode starts with the iconic NBC Peacock and contains the legendary original theme song (one of the greatest of all time) by Jay Livingston and Ray Evans. David Rose's wonderful music, specially composed for each episode, is intact. To be able to see scenes cut out of TV Land broadcasts is so gratifying! And the extras! Pages and pages of magnificent photos I've never seen before (many in color), including on the set, off the set, cast relaxing "at home," making personal appearances . . . audio commentary on some episodes by guest stars (you should hear what Julie Adams recalls about Dan Blocker in "The Courtship" and what Stella Stevens says about working with Michael Landon in "Silent Thunder . . .), footage of David Dortort in his home, and perhaps my favorite extra, a gem of an interview with Dan Blocker giving an eloquent account of differences and similarities between himself and "Hoss." Executive Producer Andrew Klyde and the rest of the team at CBS Home Entertainment outdid themselves and delivered a great follow-up to last year's Bonanza: The Official First Season, Vol 1 & 2. Even the on-screen menu pages featuring a gorgeous screen-capture of each "Cartwright" is great and easy to navigate. Get this DVD set right away! And then vol. 2 ASAP next year. It's a BONANZA for sure!

5.0 out of 5 stars Thank God; it's about time! October 15, 2010
I was so afraid this would never come out! Thank God it's coming! I don't even have to see it to know it is going to be great. The first-season DVDs were wonderful... complete un-cut episodes, clear color and film quality, and the CORRECT ORIGINAL MUSIC, not to mention you can be sure you get EVERY episode, unlike all that I dislike with the "other" Bonanza DVD collections out there. I would be thrilled with just the episodes themselves, but the special features are icing on the cake. My mother's favorite from the first-season set are the photo galleries. She was a Bonanza fan when the show first aired and I have now fallen in love with the show. Please, please, please, please, release the official DVDs for all the other seasons, too! Women of the younger generation need more Pernell Roberts.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is a must have for any Bonanza Fan October 12, 2011
By P. King
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I can't believe the quality and the special features are just priceless. This is a must have for any Bonanza Fan! It's well worth the money to have the Cartwrights come into your livingroom any old time you like. There's some great episodes from this set and I'm so excited to have them in such high quality! Thank you so much for releasing them and I hope there will be more seasons to come!

5.0 out of 5 stars Season 2/ Volume 2 October 16, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Another well done release. The pictures are so crisp and clear and the sound is wonderful. The restoration of these episodes is great. The extras, as usual, are well worth viewing. Some pictures are familiar but many are new. Especially enjoyed the pictures from the Rose Bowl Parade. Have seen stills of this but never the motion pictures. Hopefully the sales will warrant the release of Season Three very soon.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bonanza Season 2 Volume 1 October 16, 2010
By Jessica
Thank goodness we are getting season 2. I know that companies like to see how well products like this sell before they continue with the next and I am glad to see that we are stepping in the right direction. Even though I never saw Bonanza when it first came out, simply because I wasn't born yet, I would always watch the re-runs on PAX when I was a little kid and immediately fell in love with the series. I still watch the re-runs today on TV Land and am happy that the DVDs are uncut and have beautiful picture and sound. This will be the ultimate collection for all Bonanza fans.

5.0 out of 5 stars So Glad for the "Official" Bonanza dvds!! November 12, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I am the happy purchaser of Official Season 1 volumes 1 & 2 and also the Official Season 2 volumes 1 & now 2.

I had purchased the german dvds as the original music was on them, unlike all the other dvds of Bonanza circulating round the USA and found in dollar bins etc.

But these "Official" ones are well worth the price. Firstly, for me, they have captioning, which is a boon for those with hearing losses and they naturally have the original music scores and are uncut.

But they also come with great extras! There are still b&w pix from behind the scene shootings, there are publicity clips (a video of a Rose Bowl Parade appearance in the most recent), comments from the producer, Mr Dortort, voice overs from guest stars and stuntsmen etc with tidbits about the shows, the actors and the production.

For the Bonanza fan, this is MUST HAVE item. And I can only hope that more dvds for other seasons will be produced and in the same manner.
