    Thanks for the detailed report, Doug! Glad to see you're enjoying the series. Yes, that "Fight Night" episode is a great one. Some excellent drama awaits you...but I do recommend parceling them out.

    The Wide Country
    is another very good rodeo drama from the 1962-63 season, with Earl Holliman and Andrew Prine as brothers traveling around the U.S. Another one to consider if you don't yet have it. Maybe not quite in Stoney Burke's class, but very good nonetheless, with a bit of a Route 66 feel.

    That looks like a really good deal, Dana. I haven't seen any of the show though.

    If you're collecting the entire series, beware the US versions, because season 6 in the US suffers from Quaalude syndrome, aka NTSC slowdown and no pitch correction, which leaves everyone talking and sounding sloooooooooooooooooooow. I switched to R2 releases afterward just in case, and re-bought 6 from the UK because of it.

    had the first two seasons, the Sony releases, as i had gotten them from my Sony rewards account, but then thy stopped, after season two in the US,, for those that have those first two seasons keep those disc, because each season here is only 2 disc each and the Sony release was 4 per season, so extras and such may be missing from the box set.

    Did you get the Blu-Ray set or the DVD, John? I've had my eye on the Blu set of this show for a while now.

    I am wading through this series now as I type this. It is a great-looking DVD, with the prints as good or better than when it was made back in 1972-73, but it is one painful watch, let me tell you. It is dated as all get-go. It also doesn't help that Baxter and Birney hang all over themselves on this show, which borders on overkill, and it is worse knowing how things turned out for both of them in real life.

    This show, had it continued, would have done a lot of damage to CBS's future legendary Saturday night lineup. It was just not very good. After cancellation because of pressure from some religious groups, the time slot was first inherited by M*A*S*H*, a show that had flagging ratings until it moved into the slot and became a ratings powerhouse and TV classic, and ultimately by The Jeffersons, another television classic.

    I forget what religious groups brought to bear here that caused cancellation-- was it because the main characters were Jewish?

    Yes. Some Jewish groups got upset over the subject of intermarriage being treated lightly. The funny thing is, neither Baxter nor Birney was either Catholic or Jewish.
