    It's a program suite which plays video files copied from dvd/bluray discs.

    Personally I don't use plex.

    I already have my own set of programs which does this, where I use the computer to play multiple tv episodes (or dumb movies) one after another in the background when I'm at home.

    I feel the same way about The Streets of San Francisco as well!

    My two volumes of season 14 arrived this afternoon. All 26 episodes are remastered and look great. Keep 'em coming, CBS! For all the wishin' and hopin' we do for so many series on this forum, Gunsmoke is the one I'd really, really like to see completed.

    I received shipping confirmation from Amazon...I should have both season 14 volumes in hand soon...looking forward to seeing them again, and finally remastered...the second episode, The Hide Cutters, was filmed at scenic Vasquez Rocks State Park and features the great Joseph Campanella, Combat!'s Conlan Carter and Rawhide's Steve Raines. This brings us up to 489 episodes released on DVD from the S1 to S14 sets...and a few more than that in the previously released 50th anniversary and Directors sets!

    Which, I believe, would leave 146 episodes more to go, and six seasons left to go, to the checkers.

    I almost had a tear watching the first episode. Such a beautiful transfer compared to the old drab TV Land reruns. I'd be over the moon if these HD remasters were on Blu-Ray, but I'm not complaining.

    Season 14 is one of my favorites, and I really hope that CBS finishes the run on DVD(Please give us 15 before the end of the year). I know someone that loves old Western movies, but refuses to watch any Western TV series. I cannot understand this logic. I think if he were to watch a remastered episode of Gunsmoke he would be hooked. For my money a single good episode of Gunsmoke is on the level, or much better than any of the classic Western films of the time.

    I watched the first two episodes of the season 14 set, then skipped ahead to watch one of my favorite actors, Harry Dean Stanton, in "Johnny Cross." All three episodes ran about 50 minutes, 38 seconds, and looked great.

    Morgan Woodward and Robert Pine are outstanding in the first episode, "Lyle's Kid."

    Michael "Blue Boy" Burns appears in episode 14-2, "The Hidecutters," and does a fine job in a fairly large role. Playing the "gutter trash," to borrow Robert Ryan's line from The Wild Bunch, are Cliff Osmond, Eddie Firestone, Conlan Carter, and Ken Swofford. Good gutter trash makes for a good western movie or TV episode, IMHO.

    Stanton fans will enjoy his role in "Johnny Cross." It's one of HDS's more substantial guest spots before he transitioned to theatrical movies primarily.

    Bryan, can't agree more with you. I've said once before, Gunsmoke is so good, it's like watching a mini western movie every episode.

    Yes it is. In fact I'd much rather watch an episode of Gunsmoke (the remastered DVD sets of course) over most Western films of the time. To me Gunsmoke is like classic episodes of Star Trek. I can re-watch episodes over, and over again.

    I bet you'll get a lot of mileage out of 'em!
