By Terence Allen VINE VOICE on September 28, 2008
Gunsmoke - The Third Season, Volume 1 continues the release schedule for one of television's alltime greatest television series. Beloved and revered, this series will always be considered one of the alltime best. Yes, because of its' longevity, but also because of the great acting, directing, and writing displayed on the series.

But still, I cannot recommend these sets. There is no excuse, no justification the studio can make for splitting a 20-season series up and dividing each season into multiple sets. It's greed, shortsighted, fear of producing full season sets that won't sell - maybe one or more or all of these things. But the Western lover, loyal as we are to our favorite stars, our favorite movies and series, are being made to pay a price that is way too high to pay. To think how long it may be before the entire series is released is too painful. Suffice it to say that it will be WAY TOO LONG at the current rate.

At this point, it is probably too much to expect the studio to come to its senses. But it is worth it to say that they need to come to their senses, and soon.

Whilst I myself would love entire seasons released in 1 volume, it looks as though split volumes are here to stay. At least they are selling and I for 1 am very glad about that. I love Gunsmoke and Rawhide, 2 classic shows and I am just glad to get the opportunity to obtain superb prints of these wonderful shows. I wish there were more extras, I wish the releases were more frequent, but I will just gladly accept what i can get. A superb show with beautiful quality episodes to watch at the flick of a switch. A dream come true and as long as it lasts I am there to wallow in it. Happy trails to all fellow fans.

Gunsmoke is a great classic tv show, especially the first nine seasons that have the late Dennis Weaver on the show. I do wish that the seasons would be released as whole seasons and more faster, but you have to remember something: Gunsmoke was first aired in 1955, that is almost 54 years ago. These early seasons of Gunsmoke first have to be found, then remastered all before they can be released on DVD. So naturally with a show this old and a show that ran for so long, it's going to take time to get the seasons out onto DVD, as for the seasons being split season DVD's, who knows how long it would take for them to release Gunsmoke onto DVD if they took the time to find all, remaster all the shows of a single season and then release it onto DVD. My advice is don't complain, be glad that a great Legendary Show like Gunsmoke is being released onto DVD even if it's just split seasons. I personally am glad take them as they are released.
For those intrested, Gunsmoke Season 3: Vol 1 will be a 3 disc set that contains 19 remastered episodes that are:
1. Crack up
2. Gun For Chester
3. Blood Money
4. Kitty's Outlaw
5. Potato Road
6. Jesse
7. Mavis McCloud
8. Born to Hang
9. Romeo
10.Never Pester Chester
11.Fingured
12.How To Kill A Woman
13.Cows and Cribs
14.Doc's Reward
15.Kitty Lost
16.Twelfth Night
17.Joe Phy
18.Buffalo Man
19.Kitty Caught

CBS Television and Paramount Pictures presents "GUNSMOKE: THE THIRD SEASON VOL. ONE" (14 September 1957- 18 January 1958) (500 mins/In Glorious Black & White) (digitally remastered in Dolby) -- The television series ran from September 10, 1955 to March 31, 1975 on CBS for 635 episodes --- Until 2005, it was the longest run of any scripted primetime series with continuing characters in American primetime television --- According to a James Arness interview, John Wayne was offered the role, but wouldn't do it; Wayne was one of the biggest stars in Hollywood, and at that time, working in television was seen as a huge step down in prestige for a star actor.

In the end, the primary roles were all recast, with James Arness taking on the lead role of Marshal Matt Dillon upon the recommendation of John Wayne, who also introduced the first episode of the series; Dennis Weaver playing Chester Goode; Milburn Stone being cast as Dr. Galen "Doc" Adams and Amanda Blake taking on the role of Miss Kitty Russell, owner of the Long Branch Saloon --- Norman MacDonnell became the associate producer of the TV show and later the producer. John Meston was named head writer --- Arness, in his role on Gunsmoke, achieved what no other actor at the time had ever matched: he played the same character on the same scripted series for 20 years - at the time the longest uninterrupted period a primetime actor had played the same role in the same show.
