However on checking the discs I discovered that, although this was supposed to be Season One, the episode Wichita is Civilized is from Season Two. There is also the matter of the transmission dates which are not in chronological order. Hopefully for Season Two and beyond, Infinity Entertainment and Falcon will rectify these glaring errors.

Bottom Line: Good show, but it's been done before on DVD.

Wyatt Earp has always been a favorite of mine. My grandfather whistled the Ken Darby Singers' title song as I was growing up.
What I remembered the most was that Wyatt Earp didn't smoke and drank milk. My grandmother would tell us children-"Drink your milk. Wyatt Earp does." What was strange to us kids was that our grandmother drank buttermilk!
The fifties and early sixties were scary times for us children. On our black and white screens we had a window to the world, especially the world of the western heroes.
Some of the best episodes of season one are the ones with Bat Materson and Ben Thompson. The Buntline Special and the Big Baby Contest are especially humorous with some serious moments.
If you want a family oriented series, then Wyatt Earp is a good one. Make no mistake, Wyatt Earp was no saint in this series. His temper got the best of him at times. The Englishman episode shows this side of Wyatt the best.
There is violence. It was a violent time in American history.
Deacon Earp was a role model. Desilu Studios oversaw a number of great series in the 50's and 60's with heroes and wholesome family values which was not political talk back in those days. It was a reality of innocence which Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz brought to the living rooms of America.
As a consumer who is often frustrated by bad public domain prints of classic western television (even though they are often touted as Digitally remastered etc etc) I'm just here to say that these prints are stunning and look to be off the original FILM prints. I'll let others discuss running order and credit sequences and I bow to their knowledge on that regarding this series...I'm just delighted to view this classic in the stunning rich blacks and crisp whites of classic film as it was shot.

I loved this show as much as all of the many westerns back in the 50's and 60's. Hugh O'Brian was a handsome man to most women I expect. Read morePublished 12 months ago by Doc Savage
