Editorial Reviews

Matt Dillon (James Arness) is in charge of Dodge City, a town in the Wild West where people often have no respect for the law. He deals on a daily basis with the problems associated with frontier life: cattle rustling, gunfights, brawls, standover tactics, and land fraud. Such situations call for sound judgment and brave actions: of which Marshal Dillon has plenty.

I have been a follower of Gunsmoke since I was a youngster. I was glued to the screen every week to watch the show. Gunsmoke to me was and still is the American west. A time that most people have forgotten. This show brings in stories that are wholesome and have good value. Needless to say I am a collector and can't wait for season 10 to appear. It saddens my heart that all the shows stars are now gone. The directors as well. It was programs such as Gunsmoke, which allowed people to leave the hustle and bustle of the everyday world and be a family for a short period of time. We really need more shows like that but I think it is a lost art.

For me the first 9 years of the TV version are the best. The original cast, and B&W. Within that, the first 6 years are the very best. Most, if not all, episodes are transcribed versions of the radio versions. Unfortunately the scripts had to be mellowed some for the more restrictive TV venue. e.g., on the radio version Kitty is well known to be a prostitute, which many saloon girls were at the time, in remote areas of the West. In the TV version she is made a co-owner of the Longbranch, becoming a business woman. Otherwise, the program is a classic in every way. I intend to get seasons 1 to 9. After season 9, Chester leaves the show, and Dillon is on maybe 3 minutes in many episode - long enough to say "I've got to go up to Hayes City for a week," never to be seen again. That left Kitty and Doc to carry the show, along with an endless stream of new and mostly temporary characters. It's really a different program, and is in color. Another minor problem is that in going to a 60 minute format, starting in season 7, the plots often get stretched pretty thin, still basically being the 30 minute radio version plots. The 30 minute episodes in seasons 1 to 6 are better in my opinion, if not dramatically so. Still, I'll get all the seasons up through 9. It's still one of the best programs to ever appear on TV.

Gunsmoke was one of the great classic TV westerns. This volume you can see a definite change in the format. Chester is being "phased out" and Festus is being "phased in". (Dennis Weaver left the show after season 9.) Also, you can see where Matt Dillon also started being on the show less and less. In many of these episodes it's almost just a walk on. (I'm sorry Gunsmoke just isn't the same without Matt Dillon.)

I'm still debating on whether I will purchase season 10. I may get season 10 and then stop. I do like the character of Festus (but I preferred Chester). But season 10 is still in B/W, and as the show progressed through the years, Matt Dillon is barely on the show.

This volume has English subtitles for the hearing impaired. (But it's just not the same without Matt Dillon and Chester. Several episodes in this volume really focus on Festus, and Chester and Matt just aren't around.)

Gunsmoke ANY season is awesome. A simpler time in regards to less complicated. Hard work was rewarded and crime was actually punished. The characters are real. The good ole Old West. The longest running series ever. Keeping an eye out for the next one available.

Although I'll miss Chester and suffered some from withdrawal as he was seen less and less, Gunsmoke it a great show. I didn't see it originally so I'm enjoying it now. Learning a lot about the old west. Lots of young stars. A keeper.

I have the complete set so far and will keep buying them. Great quality disc, great series, great acting. I understand why some people are upset with the way they are distributed but when you rate them it should be on the disc itself and the quality.

I LOVE Gunsmoke!!! I was born about 11 years after the show started. My dad loved watching it when he was growing up and I just can't get enough of Matt, Chester, Kitty, Doc, Festus... I have all 9 seasons and never tire of it. I loved other westerns too like: Cheyenne, The Texan, Bonanza, Rawhide, Tombstone Territory, but Gunsmoke was the best!! I just read, shortly before posting this, that Gunsmoke will be releasing Season 10, Volumes 1& 2 , on August 12th **2014**!!! :) I read it on Gunsmoke, the tv show, Wikipedia page and when you go to dvd releases, it has a release date of 8/12/2014. I'm not saying that means it's 100% true, but it sure sounds promising. I know many were wondering, like myself. Why Amazon hasn't listed it yet, I'm not sure. I would expect that something will very soon. Bring on Season #10!!! :)
