Editorial Reviews

Matt Dillon (James Arness) is in charge of Dodge City, a town in the Wild West where people often have no respect for the law. He deals on a daily basis with the problems associated with frontier life: cattle rustling, gunfights, brawls, standover tactics, and land fraud. Such situations call for sound judgment and brave actions: of which Marshal Dillon has plenty.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great! But trouble playing some discs on DVD recorder. February 15, 2013
Verified Purchase
This is a revised review. I am generally happy with all of the "Gunsmoke" and "Have Gun, Will Travel" DVDs. This is due to the high quality of the audio and video and to the fact that both were among a handful of the very best TV westerns ever produced. However, I have been having chronic problems playing these discs on my Panasonic DVD Recorder, which functions both as a DVD player and recorder. Almost every set has at least one disc that will not even start and is rejected by the machine as "incompatible." Sometimes I am able to get them to play by repeatedly opening and closing the disc drawer. I do not have this problem with any other discs that I've purchased or burned myself. Oddly, the discs play perfectly on my older, standard DVD player.

I wondered if anyone else has experienced this problem with the CBS programs DVDs.

1.0 out of 5 stars NEGATIVE ISSUES WITH GUNSMOKE DVD COLLECTIONS. May 31, 2013
By Ken
I have several issues with the latter GUNSMOKE SEASON dvd collections, two issues in particular.
Number one is the increase in price for these seasons. STUDIO GREED is the reason here, pure and simple.
My second gripe concerns the number of repeat episodes included. 'Quint Asper Comes Home' is listed, yet again,
on the eighth season, volume one.
Yes, GUNSMOKE, has become the gold standard among mega-successful TV westerns, no question about it.
However, this fact does NOT warrant repeat episodes or exorbitant prices.
Consumers are NOT paying for either of these.
I haven't purchased The Eighth Season, and not planning to until these negative issues are addressed and remedied.

5.0 out of 5 stars MIGHT BE LAST PURCHASE - PRICE INCREASE TOO MUCH May 9, 2013
Verified Purchase
There are no better western series than this, but I'm done buying if the price continues. Wanted to contiue collecting the entire series, but will hold off. Is the production company taking lessons from those responsible for juggling the price of gas? However, I still enjoy watching and rewatching the episodes. I believe this is the last season for Chester, which might suggest the price bump, since sales might decrease if this is the case.

5.0 out of 5 stars the shootout on Main Street in Dodge July 19, 2013
Verified Purchase
We still watch the reruns of the original especially those in the earliest days. Matt Dill\on is a character based on Wyatt Earp but James Arness hits the nail on the head. Arness should know a little about this as he was wounded in the invasion of Salerno in Italy. We especially enjoy the early films with Dennis Weaver and his limp. Most fans wanted Matt and Miss Kitty to marry but that was not to be. Ken Curtis was alright as Festus but the show was not the same.
When Arness passed away there was almost a national wake by those who grew up with those characters.

1.0 out of 5 stars Too Expensive March 29, 2013
For the first time I may not buy the next available season of Gunsmoke ( Season 8)that will be released on May 7th. What is the justification for increasing the price? I have enjoyed buying the previous seasons but I will not continue buying at the present prices.

4.0 out of 5 stars Classic entertainment! August 13, 2013
Verified Purchase
My husband and I really like the 30 minute episodes, in black and white with Chester on them. We have 12 DVD sets so far and will likely order more. I would definately recommend them to friends, because they were filmed at a time when humor was not filth and when morals and integrity meant something.
