Editorial Reviews

SPECIAL FOIL PACKAGING! This box set brings you thirteen of the best episodes from Laredo's second season on three DVDs, faithfully reproduced from the original NBC masters. Hitch up the wagon and join in the fun with the wackiest company of Texas Rangers ever to uphold the law! Laredo, with its blend of western comedy and high drama, is one of the best television westerns to be found. Laredo premiered in prime time as an episode of The Virginian and was such a big hit, with its wonderful cast, gorgeous color photography, western ambiance and tight, serio-comic scripts, that it was immediately signed for a full season. Laredo brings together three Texas Rangers with distinctive personalities, strengths and weaknesses, under the stern command of Captain Edward Parmalee (Philip Carey). Wacky Reese (Neville Brand), brawny Joe (William Smith) and smooth Chad (Peter Brown) are equally good at roughhouse humor as well as serious law keeping. Chad and Joe are particularly good with the ladies, something most westerns of the day shied away from. In Season 2, Claude Akins joined the cast as Cotton, a character similar to Brand's Reese, and Robert Wolders made several appearances as Ranger Erik Hunter. Quick in the saddle and quick on the draw, when these lawmen go after evil-doers, they always see justice done. The show attracted many terrific guest stars, including: Norman Leavitt (Leave It To Dixie); Kathleen Freeman (Scourge of San Rosa); Jack Kelly (Enemies and Brothers); Barbara Anderson (The Other Cheek); Claude Akins (A Question of Guilt); Jeanette Nolan (Like One Of The Family) and Myron Healey (Split The Difference).

Timeless Media finishes the Laredo series with the release of this Season Two, Part Two set. The three DVDs are in slim cases, as was Season Two, Part One. Each episode of the Season Two sets includes the opening credits, possibly because of complaints that the Season One DVDs played the opening credits only as part of the main menu. Both picture and sound are very good for a 40-plus-year-old series. For some reason, the sound is louder on the third disc (#65364 on the spine), at least in my set.
The thirteen episodes, presented in their original broadcast order, include what is arguably Neville Brand's best showing, "The Short, Happy Fatherhood of Reese Bennett". Reese "adopts" an orphaned Indian lad, only to encounter unforeseen problems. Brand's performance is touching yet not overly sentimental.
A bonus feature on Disc One, the first on any Laredo set, is a 25-minute recent interview with co-star Peter Brown, who played Ranger Chad Cooper. Brown talks aboout working with Brand on Laredo and about his career previous to that series.
The famous spooky house from Alfred Hitchcock's "Psycho" can be seen in the episode, "The Small Chance Ghost". It's also shown in the final episode, "Split the Difference", but in a different setting, so it isn't as recognizable. This last episode of the series also has the fourth and final appearance of Shelley Morrison as Linda Littletrees.
Claude Akins appears in three episodes as Ranger Cotton Buckmeister, "Hey Diddle Diddle", "A Question of Guilt," and "Walk Softly", sort of a substitute for Neville Brand, who missed several shows. Their characters have been called similar by some but if you watch carefully, the only thing Reese and Cotton have in common is being the butt of the other Rangers' jokes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Larado, Season 2, Part 2 March 3, 2009
Verified Purchase
Larado was an exceptionable Western TV series that unlike most of its contemporaries had a comedic quality with its lead character played by Neville Brand. Brand portrayed his charactor "Reese Bennett" with both serious and comedic qualities. He would always get in trouble and his fellow Texas Rangers played by Peter Brown, William Smith, Phillip Cary & Robert Wolders would have to rescue him or help him out. With his supporting cast and great guest stars each week the show was top calibre. It's strange for me to be writing this as when I was a college student back in the mid-60's I had the pleasure of visiting the set of "Larado" at Universal Studios. It was wonderful experience which would be hard to duplicate today.
Larado should, in my opinion, have lasted longer than the just the 2 Seasons they did. It was one of a kind.

I really love the old westerns but especially because William Smith was in it trying to get all of his movies and tv shows
