OK...let me further elaborate on this topic.
Bonanza: I bought season 4 vol.2 and season 5 vol 1. I did this to get my favorite episodes of Bonanza.
S4 V2 contains episodes "My Brother's Keeper" (Adam accidentally shoots Little Joe while hunting) and "The Boss" Ben Cartwright in a fight with treacherous Carroll O'Connor). S5 V1 is almost like a greatest episodes DVD with "Twilight Town" (Bonanza's closest step toward the Twilight Zone)., "The Legacy" (The boys character is put to the test when their father has been kidnapped and apparently murdered), "A Quality Of Mercy" (Little Joe sees a friend put his severely injured father-in-law to death and has to wrestle with the matter), "Hoss and the Leprechauns" (Hoss is seeing Little Green Dressed fellers hiding gold and appearing outta nowhere around the Ponderosa), "Ponderosa Matador" (The Cartwright boys try their hand at bullfighting striving for the affections of the same girl) and "Alias Joe Cartwright" (A bad guy that looks exactly like Joe Cartwright is causing havok in Virginia City).
Have Gun Will Travel: I passed on Season 5 and season 6, Vol 2 because of way too many week episodes. Season 6 Vol. 1 is a ball of fire with "Genesis", "Memories Of Monica", "The Predators", "A Place For Abel Hix" and "Marshal Of Sweetwater". The last episode on the set, "The Treasure", stars Trek's DeForest Kelley, Lee Van Cleef, Dallas' Jim Davis and recently deceased Jeanne Cooper.
Gunsmoke: Disagree with those planning to stop at season 11....although I do see your point of view. At minimum...I would like the first color season in the library. I love this show and will get all 20 if Paramount releases them.
Superman (George Reeves): Agreed with season 1 owners only...but certainly understand those wanting season 2 and beyond as I bought my grandsons all seasons but I have only season 1 in my library.
Twilight Zone: I pass on season 4.
The FBI (Efrem Zee): The two seasons with Stephen Brooks is all I want.
Hawaii 5-0: Have seasons up through 7 as these are rated highly except season 4 (a weak year) and I passed on it so Ihave seasons 1-3 and 5-7.
TAGS: Like most everybody else...through season 5.
Barnaby Jones: Season 1
Hill Street Blues: Want ALL...same for Rawhide, Green Acres and The Big Bang Theory.
Northern Exposure, Deadwood, Foyle's War, Mary Tyler Moore, Dick Van Dyke, Columbo, The Honeymooners, I Love Lucy, The Fugitive, Wanted Dead Or Alive, Star Trek (TOS), M Squad, Fawlty Towers, and Danger Man have ALL.
