Is there anyone interested in this release?  Any comments, Good/Bad.  After 3 released collections, this doesn't seem interesting anymore? I'm a bit surprise the group of regulars that would be discussing this hasn't been around to comment.

Well Brian, welcome though it is I don't see much there of interest. Most of it I imagine we have seen on other PD releases. Gabby Hayes, Tim McCoy & Lash of the West are not really TV westerns in the true sense of the word.

Well over 2/3 rd of the others I already have but will wait to see the episode titles, I think Mill Creek must have struggled to put this together.

Surprised they never followed up their 150 Greatest Detectives with another release though.

Well, I agree that this collection by itself wouldn't be much to get excited about, but I believe it is a good release if you have collected the other 3 sets.  Especially if you never collected other PD material before hand, like me.  I didn't start collecting PD material before Mill Creek provided it at such an affordable way.  I agree that a second release of the Detective genre would be most welcome.

It's amazing the number of TV shows of the past that are in the public domain.  It seems like an endless supply at times, even including stuff from the 70s! 
Bring "The continuing story of PEYTON PLACE" home on DVD: the one that started it all- from Dallas and Dynasty to Desperate Housewives and Gossip Girl!!! Starting this May, see the legendary saga starring Mia Farrow, Ryan O'Neal, Barbara Parkins, and Oscar-winner Dorothy Malone on DVD thru...

I am glad to get more HUDSON BAY. I never thought of Barry Nelson as an action star. I knew him from the panel shows like TO TELL THE TRUTH, I think. I like the "Easterns" like Hudson Bay. (and Northwest Passage and Hawkeye)

As a Hopalong Cassidy fan I am interested in the early color show Judge Roy Bean, and Cowboy G-Men since they both featured and were produced by Russell "Lucky" Hayden. (Hayden also produced 26 MEN.) Plus they are good shows.

I am certainly glad for these economical sets. Even if some of these have been released on other PD sets, who wants to buy all those smaller sets?

There are 2 episodes of Stories of The Century. Previous Millcreek releases had all the episodes except 2 so this is likely those missing ones. That, then, would be a complete series within these 150 packs.

Note to Brian--Thanks for those lists you have put together in the past. I printed them for reference.

I look forward to receiving the episode listings for this new release to find out what we are getting.

I recently picked up the Mill Creek 300 Western episode collection (which I guess is just the first two 150 packs combined).  Currently watching The Cisco Kid shows, and while certainly not too deep in the writing of the plots, it's a fine way to pass some time.  I'll add this upcoming release to my collection, as the price is right, and Mill Creek does a pretty good job with their PD material.

You are certainly welcome.  I appreciate the thanks.   I will be updating and reposting the list as soon as we get episode confirmation.  I have the list in a spreadsheet and I would be lost without it because I like to watch them in order and it helps me remember where I left off.  I just picked up the TMG: Classic TV Western Collection (From Sam's Club &14.88) and there are some episodes that haven't been included in the previous 3 Mill Creek sets.  But now I'm thinking some of them may show up in this new Mill Creek release making many duplicates in my collection.  That's one semi-frustrating issue with collecting PD material, the amount of duplication that starts to occur as your collection grows.  O'well at least we have access to this wonderful classic material and it's so cheap!

Mill Creek was helpful enough to provide a complete listing of the episodes.  Great looking addition to the first 3 releases.  Please visit Mill Creek Entertainment, millcreekent.com for more information! I'm working on the update to the episode list for all 4 collections.  I should be able to post it in a couple days.

I've updated the Mill Creek Western Episode Guide in its original post.  It's a lot of data to verify, so please post anycorrections that may help the community.

After looking at this set more carefully, I notice that although there are episodes offered by other PD companies, there are many offered only here. For many series, Millcreek has among this set and its 3 earlier ones by far the most episodes. If you took all the DVDs from all other PD companies for the series represented here, you would have fewer episodes. Plus you would pay a fortune more.

I hope they continue with these western sets. I have no idea how this last one is selling, but I would like to see them finish more series like they did with Stories of the Century. Perhaps they could finish Judge Roy Bean, Cowboy G-men, Northwest Passage, and the one remaining episode of Tate in the next set.


Note to Brian--You used to have a listing for certain series like Judge Roy Bean on the web that I had saved to my favorites and consulted at times. I can't access it anymore. Have you moved it? Thanks, Jimmy

 Has anyone seen Western TV Treasures in a brick and mortar chain store? Best Buy used to carry the 150 episode sets in stores for only $19.95, and Borders used to carry them at a higher price, but they were around $17-something when using their member coupons. But alas, neither chain is carrying them in store.

Wal-Mart sometimes has them in their discount bin and you can find them at Sam's Club as well. Beyond that, hard to say.

Occaisionally Deep Discount will have these Sets featured in their Two-For-One sales. I've purchased several of their Movie and TV Box Sets in this manner!
