Editorial Reviews

One of the longest running and most popular of all television programs, BONANZA has become a part of American mythology. 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, the thousand-square mile home of Ben Cartwright and his sons, Adam, Hoss and Little Joe. Guest players were a veritable Who's Who of classic Hollywood and upcoming superstars, and timeless stories continue to appeal to contemporary audiences of all ages.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Great Season Comes To DVD July 9, 2013
Verified Purchase
Bonanza's 6th season was the last to feature Pernell Roberts as Adam Cartwright. Unhappy with a perceived decline in script quality, Roberts would leave in early 1965 (mid-season) to pursue other acting opportunities. Because of this, just under half of the episodes featured in this collection are "Adamless"; which tees up the "three Cartwright era" that would showcase Lorne Greene, Michael Landon & Dan Blocker exclusively, until David Canary joined the cast in the fall of 1967.

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!

5.0 out of 5 stars As Always, Delightful & Entertaining August 16, 2013
Verified Purchase
Another awesome and entertaining season by my all-time favorite western tv series. I'm so proud to own these Official DVD sets.
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars more than just bonanza August 15, 2013
Verified Purchase
There's more than just the episodes of Bonanza here. There are also several rare and vintage promo advertisments for Chevrolet cars and trucks . Furthermore, this set also includes the new for 65 ad with stars from Bewitched .(who also used Chevrolets in their show). If you belong to a Chevrolet club or just like Chevies in general, I think you will find not only the show entertaining but these rare ads as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars season of "invention of a gunfighter" July 25, 2013
Verified Purchase
this is the season my husband and i have been waiting for because it contains the powerful episode, "invention of a gunfighter." guy stockwell guest stars as johnny chapman, a fumbling, somewhat cowardly cowboy who encounters a threat named al mooney who tries to claim johnny's girlfriend olive. after an embarassing showdown with al in the saloon, johnny turns to little joe for instructions on how to handle a gun. this is when the story becomes epic. it has a lot to say morally, especially for a society today that really needs to listen. my husband says this is his favorite episode of ANY tv series, and we are fans of many classic shows. season 6 of bonanza is a must-have.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Uncut episodes August 19, 2013
Verified Purchase
All episode are uncut, picture quality is excellant, extras are great, I was too young to see these when they origionally aired so to be able to get them with the extra NBC bumpers is great, I love them you have never seen Bonanza this clearly.

5.0 out of 5 stars That's okay, Don't Rush! March 24, 2014
Verified Purchase
I'd rather they take the time to keep the quality up. These as well as other CBS DVD's from the 60's and 70's look excellent, even without hi-def, other shows to check out? Mannix, Mission Impossible, Gunsmoke and Hawaii Five O all look better than they did when originally broadcast!

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!
