5.0 out of 5 stars A Slight Correction But Who Cares? October 1, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Having seen nearly every episode of The Virginian and The Men From Shiloh, when they were originally broadcast (yes, I am that old), I would like to correct a minor point in Amazon's Editorial Review. The timeline for The Men From Shiloh would have been, at the very least, the first decade of the 20th Century. In the first season of The Virginian, he (the Virginian), Trampas and Steve joined Col. Teddy Roosevelt's Rough Riders and fought in Cuba during The Spanish American War. The year was 1898. Several later episodes, in following years, referred to their combat experience. To be chronologically correct, The Men from Shiloh should have taken place some time around 1908. But, to be perfectly honest, I don't care what year they show on a calendar or the cornerstone of a building when watching an episode. This is still one of the best series every created, based on a classic of American literature. The Virginian, written by Owen Wister, was the first true "cowboy" story, a new genre that captured the country's Heart. And now, in a time when it's becoming more and more difficult to tell the good guys from the bad guys, and when the heroes have more character flaws than the villains, it's good to pop in a DVD and watch another morality play, and be reminded of some old fashioned values, such as duty and honor and truth; the same values that, sadly, are mocked and ridiculed today. It's good to remember that some of the strongest, most devoted families aren't always related by blood. It's good to remember that doing the right thing isn't always popular, isn't always rewarded, and may cost nearly everything you have, but you do it anyway, simply because it's the right thing to do. And, after watching "The Town Killer" again, after forty years, I am still reminded of Ambrose Redmoon's words, "Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the judgment that something else is more important than fear." So...

Here's to the cowboy. Long may he live. Among us.

5.0 out of 5 stars A new title. Same great show November 20, 2011
By Mike
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This was the final season of "The Virginian". They had changed the title and had moved the series on about 10 years.There was a new owner in Stewart Granger and James Drury had a new set of clothes and had grown his sideburns.Doug McClure was sporting a mustache as well as new get up.Lee Majors would also join the cast.There was also a new theme song by Ennio Morricone.This season would be different from the rest.They would rotate the stars each week so you would only see one of the main characters appear.They would mostly be away from the Shiloh Ranch on one adventure or another.This may be why the series ended as it didn't have the same feel about it and there was no family ambience to it.It could also be that the western was coming to an end and people were looking for something new.But this is still a great series sorely missed today.

1.0 out of 5 stars very poor quality February 6, 2012
By Nita
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This was a big disappointment. It claims to be digitally remastered but we would disagree! Picture and sound quality were extremely poor. We have old programs recorded directly from the TV that is better in quality. We hope someone else will pick-up the series and do a better job at remastering.

I would not recommend this product to anyone.

2.0 out of 5 stars Beware! edited prints, not full length! December 29, 2011
Format:DVD
What's missing from this DVD set? About six minutes of footage on many of the episodes. Also missing is broadcast quality picture and sound. Also missing are bonus tracks. The biggest problem of the three listed is the inexcusable practice of presenting 70-minute, edited copies instead of 76-minute, full-length network prints. The artificial act breaks are amateurish. The jumps into and out of black are awkward. Re the second point, some of the transfers are horrible, especially when "day-for-night" scenes are included. Images appear much too dark. And yet some episodes' day scenes appear too bright, where portions of the screen turn bleached white. The brightness problem is evident in many of the end titles. Good sound is inconsistent. In "The Mysterious Mister Tate" more than half of the episode occurs on a moving train, yet with no sound (effect) of the moving train. Obviously Timeless is dealing with decent masters on some episodes and not-fit-for-broadcast masters of others. Hey Timeless, thoroughly search the vaults -- not a half-assed effort -- and give us the best there is. That's what we're paying for. It's not like other DVD distributors are going to be putting "The Men from Shiloh" on the market and consumers can then choose the best. This is our only shot, and you blew it. The Universal logo appears at the conclusion of end titles on a few episodes (as it should), and not on others. A bonus track with James Drury and Lee Majors or others discussing the much-anticipated re-tooling of "The Virginian" is sorely missing. And have a knowledgable interviewer lead the discussion; don't let the stars ramble on and on with the result being minimal useful information. Read more ›

4.0 out of 5 stars ALL in color? September 10, 2011
Format:DVD
The Men From Shiloh is a greatly underrated series. It has been running on TV here (Australia) recently....after not being seen for nearly 40 years.

Different in style to its predecessor, The Virginian...as it it is set 10 years after the original series. Its "star", Stewart Granger, tries hard in the role of Col. McKenzie but the show really belongs to James Drury and Doug McClure. Surprisingly, even Lee Majors (not generally regarded as a "great" actor)has some memorable moments in the series.

One thing puzzles me...episode #22 "The Town Killer" has been broadcast in B&W both here and in the UK recently. I wonder if the color negative will be used for the DVD release? Or, is it another victim of the Untiversal Studios fire?
