Still the greatest TV western,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Gunsmoke: Season 7, Vol. 1 (DVD)
Though I feel that the half hour Gunsmoke was a bit better than this one hour season, most of the episodes were still good, some even great. The original main actors are so good and one wants to see them as much as possible. When the center is on some other actors, they are often not as interesting. Long, long trail was really a touching story. Barbara Lord was simply wonderful in this episode. And James Arness, too.
I have now watched half of the volume 2 of the seventh season. What I said applies to this second volume, too. Half Straight, The Gallows and He Learned About Women were particularly good. I may order the next volumes, though the prize has increased a bit too much. I do not like Festus, which makes one hesitate buying. I know that many expect him, but I don't. I do not appreciate his kind of humor. Chester is more likable and difficult to compensate.
