This is also the season in which the original distributor, Republic Pictures, began dividing up seasons for syndication. "Lothario Larkin", which was one of the "Adamless" 6th season episodes, was excluded from Bonanza's "Classic 260" syndication package that has aired on North American television from the late 1970's to date. It remained out of syndication until it was included as part of the "Lost Episodes" package that began airing on the Family Channel back in 1988. Inexplicably, it's the only pre-7th season episode excluded from that original package. The 8th, 9th, 10th & 11th season episodes were divided between "Classic 360" and "Lost Episodes" packages, so it will be exciting to see them all together again in their original running order in future Bonanza releases.
In this set, we have a refreshing blast from the past. I've never seen these episodes look so clean! I grew up watching those washed out, grainy 16mm syndication prints on KTLA in Los Angeles. So seeing the color and audio restored to near-HD quality is a real treat; along with all the extras. I'm guessing these episodes didn't look this great when they aired on NBC back in the day!
Keep it up!
The only thing that's sad about this season is knowing that it's the final season with Adam (Pernell Roberts). He left after this season to pursue other things. But Adam was great clear to the end. As are all of the Cartwrights.
These DVD sets aren't the quickly rushed type that most companies release of different tv shows. These are all digitally restored, with beautiful picture quality and sound. In fact, they look better than they did when they originally aired. I often find myself forgetting just how old this series is when I'm watching it. It's easy to fool myself into thinking it's a current series. The wonderful clarity causes that. Hard to believe that something that was filmed so long ago can look SO good.
There's a bunch of extras on these DVD's. Such as photo galleries, Chevrolet adverts/promos, original NBC logo and bumpers, and commentary on select episodes. There's even some extras with Lorne Greene and Michael Landon singing. VERY interesting. I love the fact that Columbia Pictures isn't lazy with these DVD releases. They pack as much content as they can into these sets (unlike other DVD sets of tv shows, such as Family Matters. Which has no extras whatsoever.) They're VERY worth owning in your collection. Definitely worth the 5-Star rating I gave it.
I only hope they continue releasing these Official Season Sets until all 14 seasons are on DVD.
Besides, when they release them every few months it builds up a demand for them. New press releases spark new interest and also a lot of people might not be able to afford to buy the complete set at once! Too many great series with low sales have left me in the lurch by not releasing the rest of the series (Early Edition, St Elsewhere, WKRP and others to name a few)! I was too young to catch a lot of these shows. I'm playing catch up now and enjoying every minute of it!
