It's still a set that's very-much worth getting, because the show is excellent... I just thought buyers should be aware that they're edited versions first, just to avoid disappointment. (Five stars for the show itself, two taken off for the edited versions)
Each episode has a lesson illustrating how a man should act and ends with a prayer by Walter Brennan that his grandson learn the lesson. Walter Brennan was one of the great character actors in Hollywood history and Guns is the perfect vehicle for his acting skills. Terrific guest stars and well written scripts round out the series, making this a television classic.
UPDATE: SEPTEMBER 3, 2011
I wrote that review after seeing the first one or two discs. Now that I've watched all six discs, I stand by it as much now as I did when I wrote it, but I've noticed something even more profound about this series.
We know that many TV shows in the 1960s were more profound than they appeared on the surface. The producer of Gilligan's Island has said that the show was about democracy and scholarly books have been written to support that.
In addition to providing lessons of manhood, The Guns of Will Sonnet is about myths and history and their role in our personal growth. The choice of actors is perfect. Walter Brennan was a legend himself in Hollywood by the late 1960s, having become an actor shortly after he returned as a doughboy from World War I. Dack Rambo, who played Jeff has such deference to Brennan that the viewer completely believes that he is Brennan's grandson. For an actor who doesn't appear to have had a long career, he is terrific here.Read more ›

I remember this show from when I was a kid. No brag, just fact! It's amazing to see the difference in quality between this and shows like Gunsmoke, Rawhide and Bonanza. Read morePublished 3 months ago by Benny Katz
