I just received Gunsmoke Season 7, Volume 1. The transfers look great! I was a little disappointed by the transfers in the Season 6 releases; I didn't think they were as strong as earlier seasons. With Season 7, CBS/Paramount returns to its previous high standards of picture quality. The season 7 episodes look much better in this set than they do on the Western Channel. I'm also happy that subtitles and a few episode previews were also included. I'm stunned that they have made it this far with Gunsmoke! I'd love from them to continue and get through the black and white years. I hope they keep to the accelerated schedule. If so, maybe they could finish the black and white years sometime in 2014!
