The Cartwrights are back – Ben (Lorne Greene), Adam (Pernell Roberts), Hoss (Dan Blocker) and Little Joe (Michael Landon) – in the last 16 Season Two episodes of Bonanza, complete with its stirring theme song and uncut on DVD for the first time. Join America’s first family of the West in this four-disc collectible set as they battle outlaws, help the needy and romance beautiful ladies at the spectacular Ponderosa ranch and in rip-roaring Virginia City.

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.

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!

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.

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!

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.

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.

This long-awaited CBS Paramount DVD release of Season Two, Volume 1, executive produced by Andrew J. Klyde, is yet another quantum leap for the legendary series! The image and sound quality is excellent!

Working from the original 35mm film elements (prints and magnetic soundtracks stored by NBC in Fort Lee, New Jersey), technicians remastered episodes on digital video (with
edits) in the late 80's.

In 2009-2010, CBS in Studio City obtained the interpositives and audio tracks from NBC for DVD. The prints and soundtracks were taken to Hi-Def video and digital audio for the ultimate quality on DVD masters. The lowest amount of MPEG-2 compression was used for the cleanest image and it shows beautifully. No edits and complete and uncut.

My best goes to Andrew Klyde, who lobbied for years to get the series out. His hard work got us great bonus contents and he wrote detailed liner notes (with film dates and locations), which we appreciate very much!

The packaging is much improved since the first season. It's easier to detach DVDs from the flip-trays. Also, the episode titles and bonus contents are listed on every disc. Note: Season One didn't have this included; the fans complained and were heard!

Fans know many of these episodes have cropped up on DVD sets in recent years because they fell into public domain and bootleg outfits who call themselves video distributors have been selling them since then. They are renegades who illegally acquired bad copies of the episodes and sell them for dirt-cheap prices. I'm talking about outfits such as Madacy, Brentwood, Mill Creek, Echobridge, etc. Do NOT buy from any of these crooks. Even the photos and names on these cheap DVDs are used without legal permission.
