This review is from: Gunsmoke: Season 7, Vol. 1 (DVD)
Gunsmoke is a great series. Season 7 is where they went to the hour format. When I started watching the first episode, I couldn't figure out why it seemed like I had seen it recently. Same thing with the second episode. Then I read about the rest of the episodes - these were the episodes shown on Encore Western, so they were rerun many times on Encore. I agree with everyone else...the fact they "split" the seasons ends up making Gunsmoke a little pricey in the long run, but it's easier for me (personally) to come up with $25 a hit than $50. But then we have to wait twice as long for the rest of the season to come out too. It's a trade off. At any rate, Gunsmoke was a great show. Personally, I will only "probably" buy up to (and including) season 10, as they were in B/W. I feel the stories were better. By season 10, it seemed like Matt Dillon wasn't in the episodes as much either. Just wasn't the same.

Gunsmoke was black and white for eleven seasons, and was the last prime time show to switch to color, (season 12) on September 17, 1966, for the excellent episode #410, "Snap Decision."
