I will definitely get the Adam years. After that I enjoyed the years with Candy. He was almost like another son to Ben. Ben treated him like one, anyway. Great show,

You know, I remember someone saying that CBS would probably end the Gunsmoke series when they started the Bonanza series. I hope this isn't true. I bought my Gunsmoke at Walmart about 4 days ago and noticed today that only one copy was left (there were like 5 or 6 when I bought mine). So hopefully that's a good sign. I can't see CBS canceling this if it's a good seller.

Well, why cancel one high seller when you can add another and double your profits? Besides, CBS just got over one firestorm with the Fugitive music rights issue, they certainly don't want to make another strong fan base angry.

No, I expect both Gunsmoke and Bonanza to sell as long as they are profitable.

Hi guys,

I'm new on this great forum and I'm from Spain. My english it isn't as good as I'd like but I can write it and read it without too much problems.

I'm a hard fan of American classic TV, actually I grew up here in Spain with so many American TV series such as "Little House on the Prairie", "Rich Man Poor Man", "The Love Boat", "Hawaii Five-o" and of course "Bonanza". To name just a few.

I have many of them with its original spanish dubbing, but in many other cases I have the American DVD's that includes spanish subtitles, even though it isn't too much difficult for me to understand english (I have the complete first and second season of "Family", for example, and it's easy for me to understand the plots etc...)

anyway I really hope that this "Bonanza" release include spanish subtitles, and my question is: Does anybody knows if this could happen on this DVD edition of the gorgeous TV series "Bonanza"?

Thanks in advance guys Posted Image

The first six seasons had all of them, Pernell Roberts (Adam) disappeared after that.

No reason is ever given for Adams Dissapearance is it? And He's never mentioned again as I understand it... must be with Ritchie Cunningham's Brother somewhere.

My recollection is that he is mentioned from time to time. I believe they stated he went East to become an engineer or something like that, but I'll have to look that up.

Adam moved to Australia to start his own ranch. He's mentioned a few times during Season 7 with "we got a letter from Adam" dialogue. One episode featured a guest character who mentions meeting Adam in Australia. I don't believe the character is mentioned again after Season 7.

Adam's son, an Australian who moves to the States, was a featured character in one of the "next generation" TV movies. In that, it's mentioned that Adam is still alive, but in poor health.

Hi Javier,

Some of the CBS/Paramount TV series on DVD have Spanish subtitles (and audio) and some don't. Since Bonanza is such a well-known show, I think it's possible that they will spend the extra money to make it more accessible to Spanish-speaking audiences in the U.S. We'll have to wait until it's closer to the release date to know for sure, though.

Thanks for your answer Guy.

I'll cross my fingers for that Spanish subtitles on "Bonanza" because I have always loved that show very much and I really wanted it on DVD.

Just as they did on the great "Hawaii Five-o" and "The Love Boat" DVD's, I expect also a very good restored DVD edition for "Bonanza" from CBS/Paramount, so the spanish subtitles, like in the "Hawaii Five-o" and "The Love boat" DVD's would be just great for me.

By the way; Does anybody remember one particular episode of "Bonanza" in which Little Joe (Michael Landon) tries to stop a disturbed killer with an old machine gun? I remember very clear that episode and its impact on me when I watched it here in Spain, but I don't remember the title.

Best Regards

 Picked up the combined Vol. 1 & 2 today ahead of schedule - it's always nice to get something early! Sometime later today I will settle down for some viewing and let those interested know how good the picture quality is. Some screen shots from my computer should give you an idea.Posted ImagePosted ImagePosted ImagePosted ImagePosted Image

 Dan - you guessed correctly. If I'm feeling desperate for a particular show or movie I tend to try the week before release day as usually they  have something. It would have been nice if the price was a bit less but since it has been slow lately regarding the release of older tv shows I'm not complaining.

Consider yourselves lucky, Bonanza fans!  

I continue to wait rather impatiently for MAVERICK to be released in season or half season sets.

And wait.  And wait.  And wait.  And wait......

I would love Maverick as well.  Plus more Cheyenne, Sugarfoot and Bronco.  Westerns don't get released too often, unless by an independent like Timeless.
