If you want the series The Virginian brought back to Encore Westerns Channel please respond. Why does programming always take off the best shows????

Yeah I was really disappointed when all of a sudden The Virginian wasn't on. My husband records it every day then we watch it before going to bed each night and have our nightly snack while watching it. It is a ritual over a year old and we're not sure life will ever be the same! My husband watches Encore Westerns nearly all day and we could think of a few programs we would rather do without before choosing The Virginian. Hopefully, it will come back soon.

Encore aired The Virginian for two years, cycling through the series twice and partly through a third time. I loved it also, but they need to change shows if they want to keep viewers. Plus some of the DVD sets are a bargain (season 5 is currently $32 here on Amazon).

My husband and I are very disappointed that Encore Westerns Channel took off the The Virginian. We as others our age watched it every week night. It was like a ritual with us along with other members of our families. The shows they replaced The Virginian with are very disappointing, we don't watch them. We also enjoyed getting up on Saturday morning to watch Mavric and they have discontinued it also. Why are they taking off all of their good programs. These shows were the reason we took the Encore in our cable package and now are thinking of dicontinuing it. It is a shame that good programs can not survive in this day and time. PLEASE ENCORE RETURN THE VIRGINAIN....

I join you all in being disappointed about the removal of the Virginian. I loved it. Also How the West Was Won and Maverick. What about Cheynne? Please put these back.

Being born near the end of the baby boomers, I missed the true value & meaning of the great western era. Especially series like The Virginian, Gunsmoke, Rawhide, Wagon Train, Bonanza, I was just about 1/2 way through the available episodes of the Virginian when Starz dropped it. I am making a complaint to Netflix about it also. Netflix stopped streaming Rawhide without so much as a hint that they were going to. Starz, Amazon, Netflix, bring these great shows back to on demand & streaming!

Hey everyone, I too love The Virginian one of the best westerns produced in my opinion. I don't have encore on my cable system so I have been purchasing the DVD series. I highly recommend it. They are remastered and the quality is bar none the best. Timeless Video Group with NBC Universal makes them available in retail and at Season 6 has just been released can't wait for the rest.

Please bring the Virginian back. This western is absolutely beautiful when watched on my flat screen TV. Even the black and whites are wonderful. I love Westerns. My favorites are The Virginian, Maverick, Bonanza, Lawman, Lorado, How the West Was Won, Gunsmoke and Cheyenne.
