5.0 out of 5 stars 5 Stars for Show - 1 Star in WB's Production, October 30, 2013

Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Maverick: The Complete Third Season (DVD)
Maverick was one of the top 5 television westerns ever made IMO, along with Wagon Train, Rawhide, Gunsmoke and The Virginian. The show was about 2 brothers, Bret Maverick (James Garner) and Bart Maverick (Jack Kelly), who were professional gamblers and con-artists. Most of the episodes usually featured one of the brothers, in some interesting dilemma or other. But, some of the best episodes were those in which the 2 brothers team together to pull off a con. Roger Moore joined the cast as their British cousin Beauregarde Maverick for 16 episodes over the last two seasons. 5 Stars for this great show.

However, I give 1 star for the way in which Warner Brothers has changed to releasing the show as DVD-Rs. That's bad enough, but why couldn't they just offer the final 3 seasons all at once? This tells me that there's a good chance seasons 4 and 5 will never be offered for release (even on demand).

If you buy Season 3 directly from Warner Archive, the set is replicated discs, NOT DVD-R's...at least while supplies last....

You shouldn't be rating the show's dramatic content here as it serves little or no purpose, particularly as it pertains to a show like this. The vast preponderance of "Maverick" customers are those who have already SEEN the show and have a long-held affinity sufficient to want to own it on DVD; these prospective customers are therefore looking here to determine the quality and completeness of the prints as well as any other information they can ascertain with respect to the package (eg. special features, disc housings, episode descriptions, booklets, cover material, disc type (conventional retail high-reflective silver surfaced or "Manufacture on Demand" DVD-r's with low reflective purple surfaces & their consequently limited 'readability' & shelf-life, subtitles, closed captions, disc menu quality (active or static), chapters, pressing defects, etc...). Therefore, if you have a problem with the quality of the release, as you clearly do in this instance ("1 star in WB's Production"), then you should rate it accordingly with "1 star" that will at least reduce the overall "star-rating" of this release rather than deliberately misleading prospective customers who so often rely on these product ratings in making their purchase decisions.

With all due respect, you are likely not a film or television critic & even if you are, this is not the place for such opinions as they amount to little more than narcissistic testimonials. Customers don't need you to sell them on the show; they need you to tell them about the box-set & to contribute an honest rating that accurately reflects this product information. After all. these are PRODUCT reviews; the product in this case being the actual RELEASE, not the show itself.

With all due respect you are full of it. A review is entirely up to the reviewer but in general properly encompasses both the artistic content and the production values. So for a novel for instance, a reviewer would properly rate both the story quality and the binding quality. Whether the reviewer is a "film or television critic" is of no importance whatever. Your snotty post is the best example of "narcissistic" that anyone is likely to find on this page.
