1.0 out of 5 stars NEGATIVE ISSUES WITH GUNSMOKE DVD COLLECTIONS., May 31, 2013
By 
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Gunsmoke: Season 8, Vol. 1 (DVD)
I have several issues with the latter GUNSMOKE SEASON dvd collections, two issues in particular.
Number one is the increase in price for these seasons. STUDIO GREED is the reason here, pure and simple.
My second gripe concerns the number of repeat episodes included. 'Quint Asper Comes Home' is listed, yet again,
on the eighth season, volume one.
Yes, GUNSMOKE, has become the gold standard among mega-successful TV westerns, no question about it.
However, this fact does NOT warrant repeat episodes or exorbitant prices.
Consumers are NOT paying for either of these.
I haven't purchased The Eighth Season, and not planning to until these negative issues are addressed and remedied.

You're rant is not going to bring CBS/Paramount to its knees. So just protest in quiet.

Boy, I feel like the cat that ate the canary. I have every single episode of the whole series. I got it a few years ago for $150. I should have known when they arrived from china something was up but the link was in America, I thought it was legit. but...I cannot destory them... I have all of the episodes in chronological order beginning with season 1 episode 1 and the series final. It's on about 100 DVDs and they look and sound great.

Gunsmoke started 1 hour starting with episode 7. Double the run time and more disks. Better stories. Good reason for price increase. I think $40 is a fair price.

Please bring on session 10. I can't find it anywhere.
