I have purchased "Bonanza: 20 Episodes" and would like to add to the collection. There seems to be many disks out there... some sets and some singles. Could someone recommend what else to purchase to add to my existing set without doubling up on episodes? It is confusing.

Thanks,

Dan M~

Try this link:

The individual links lead to info about each release, including, in most cases (although not for the 20-ep set which you already have), a list of the episodes contained in each set.

Do any of the Bonanza discs feature the actual theme and titles of the original show.

Linda-

Thanks for the link. I was hoping someone might have compiled a list of the best way to purchase the disk in order to avoid duplicates. If I figure it out I will post.

Simon-

Sorry, I am unable to help with your question... I would like to know myself .

Simon:

There is a two disc dvd that was put out by Republic/Artisan that contains 8 of the more popular episodes covering a 6 year period. As far as I know it is the only release that has the original theme music. It has been out for a year or so and is titled The Best Of Bonanza Volume 1. So hopefully more are on the way. You can check Amazon for reviews - it does have video transfers that are very good. Hope this helps! I will list the episodes later as I do not have the dvd with me at the moment.

Most of the Bonanza discs out there are public domain stuff. There are 3 or 4 companies that have released the same episodes over and over in every imaginable configuration, and with changes in cover art. Stuff like that frustrates me, and I'm the first to admit that we're probably missing a few titles for the show. The problm is tracking the information down with these companies, and even then it can be harder to keep up with all the stuff they're releasing. Right now I'm fighting to get information from Platinum Disc Corp on some of their releases. It's weird when you have to beg a company to send you information so you can turn around and promote their product.

Here's a listing I have started. It looks like if you buy the "20 Episode disk" and the "Best of V 1", you will have all but a couple of the released episodes. This is based on my limited research. Hope it helps...
