I never gave this series much consideration but since I enjoy Westerns went ahead and bought the 50th Anniversary Collection awhile back. This latest offering probably tells us that the chances of a season by season release may not happen. For some reason it has not really bothered me but it would be nice if Paramount got around to it. Like the Life And Legend Of Wyatt Earp from Rhino I guess if you like it one takes what they can get. One thing I noticed is that three randomly chosen earlier episodes in B&W looked very good, nice and sharp, pretty well equal to Rawhide. I can't speak for the other episodes yet, especially the color ones but when I watch them I'll mention how they look. As a final note, there are a total of 15 episodes on three discs, each with their own keepcase. The Director's theme relates to various actors who get behind the camera, adding their unique talents - the set is in memory of Dennis Weaver and his character Chester.
