Editorial Reviews

WAGON TRAIN - The Complete Season Two! 10 DVD Set in Collectible Embossed Tin! Continuing in their great tradition of classic TV westerns, NBC Universal and Timeless Media Group now bring you the complete, uncut Wagon Train - The Complete Season Two, one of the most enduring and sought after westerns of all time. Direct from the vaults at Universal, these 38 episodes have been re-mastered and presented on 10 dual layer DVDs in a special edition tin box, with a handsome DVD booklet complete with all the episode synopses, the guest stars and more. Inspired by the classic western film Wagonmaster, directed by John Ford (The Searchers, Stagecoach), Wagon Train debuted on Wednesday, September 18, 1957 on the NBC Television Network. The ensemble acting, wonderful scripts and great western scenery soon made Wagon Train a fixture in American homes on Wednesday nights, as millions of Americans of all ages tuned in to NBC for great family entertainment. Ward Bond, who starred in Wagonmaster, recreated his role from the film as Major Seth Adams. He was joined by costars Robert Horton as Head Scout Flint McCullough, Frank McGrath as the cook Charlie Wooster, and Terry Wilson as Assistant Wagonmaster Bill Hawks, who all brought their skills as horsemen as well as wonderful actors to the show, giving Wagon Train a special, western flavor.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wagon Train Season 2 Set - Terrific December 19, 2010
Format:DVD
Wagon Train is my all time favorite TV show & I'm very pleased with the season 2 DVD set recently released by Timeless Video.
The content is what really makes the set great. Of all the seasons of Wagon Train this is the one with the most really good episodes. Some favorites are Jennifer Churchill (romantic comedy with Rhonda Fleming) , Millie Davis (tender and amusing, James Coburn as Three Fingered Ike in a small role), Steve Campden (snow, cave, saber tooth tiger), Mary Ellen Thomas (with a Christmas theme), Sister Rita (with Vera Miles), and The Last Man (with Dan Duryea). Many of these are very good "Flint" stories.

Picture quality is excellent, revealing details about clothing and expressions that couldn't be seen on videos made from capturing the programs from TV. Episodes tend to run 50 minutes, or as long as 50 minutes 25 seconds, with some footage not on any TV airing in recent years.

My friends and I haven't noticed any imperfections in our season 2 discs (no spots where the the discs skip or hang while playing an episode.) (Some season 1 sets did have an imperfect disc or two that would skip or hang on some DVD players.)

The packaging (cardboard book holding the DVDs, packaged in a tin box), wouldn't be my first choice, but Timeless does seem to have done something to improve the cardboard book. Removing the season 2 discs from the cardboard book is easier than it was to remove the season 1 discs from their book. (I have chosen to keep the discs in Tyvek sleeves in a small box to get to them with less chance of scratching, but I might be being over careful.)

If you liked the Wagon Train Season 1 set, you will like the Season 2 set even more.
If you don't have either and can only afford one, I recommend the season 2 set. Either set is very good viewing.
I hope to see seasons 3, 4, and 5 in the near future.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wagon Train: Seasons 1 & 2 December 16, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I too was a cowboy-mad schoolboy when I first saw these episodes and am thrilled to see them again and to own them. I think the embossed tins are fabulous. If I'd just been given the tin when I was a lad, I'd have been in seventh heaven, never mind with the actual show inside. I am very pleased with the quality of both sound and vision. My only reservation when first placing my order for Season 1 was that the episodes might not have worn too well in story-telling terms, that they might be a little too corny by now. Nothing of the sort, the dramas are well scripted for the most part and stand up. There's also more western action than I realized or remembered. I loved Wagon Train and now we get to see it all again. I look forward to Season 3 and all the rest to come.

5.0 out of 5 stars Saddle up for great entertainment January 22, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Loved the westerns of the 1950's & this was one of the best. Ward Bond set the tone & was the father figure that was missed when he passed on. I love the music & it's the intangible things that really makes this series special..things that might not seem important, but adds historical & ironic significance to the well written stories as they unfold. The goods the wagons were carrying...things we take for granted..water, shelter for the night...how our ancestors crossed the continent in these wagons still amazes me. Clarity of picture is excellent & I have no problem with the tin the discs came in. I took other's advice & bought the 2nd season (you reviewers out there do help me make purchases..thanks). Sure brings back great memories. BUY!

5.0 out of 5 stars Wagon Train Season 2 ... 5 Stars. I loved it. January 13, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
My set arrived recently. Had no problems with packaging or dvd hanging up or not playing.

I am so pleased to own Wagon Train, Season 2. I am looking forward to Seasons 3 thru 5. Timeless Media I will buy those seasons, guaranteed.

Sound quality is above average. Screen shots are excellent. Can't say enough good things about this dvd set.

The show! My oh my. One of the greatest ever produced and brought to the tv screen. Thank you for giving me joy in seeing this show again. I have such fond memories of this show. Ward Bond and Robert Horton were magic together. There is just no other word "magic".

I am so looking forward to Seasons 3 - 5. Timeless please make it happen.

By Mulroon
Format:DVD
The first show of season two brings back three characters who appeared in different stories during season one, and weaves them into a great episode featuring William Bendix as a sea captain. The friendly bickering between Major Adams, Flint McCulloch, Charlie Wooster, and Bill Hawks is a treat when it pops up in a plot. These seasoned professions play off each other with hilarious results. The picture on these Wagon Trains is crisp and bright, not like the muddy looking versions with muffled sound that aired on broadcast and cable reruns for decades. It still amazes me that with such quality, nearly 40 hour long episodes were produced per season for much of the show's run. Even the color 7th season tallied 32 expanded length ninety minute programs. Wow! Fine writing, cast, and guest stars...Wagon Train has it all.
