    Well, they confused us all, because season 1 of Gunsmoke was a single set. 39 episodes on 6 discs. So starting out like that, everyone automatically figured it would continue on that way. Then with season 2 onward, we got the exact split you mentioned.

    Edit... and to drag it back somewhere near the topic, I keep waffling on buying Gunsmoke seasons 13-17. 17 seems to be quite popular, since it's out of stock at the big river.

    What I forgot to point out was that I think they also split these up if the content exceeds six discs per single release (cf. the recent releases of Gunsmoke's color run: 24 one-hour episodes on six discs).

    I know season eight of Gunsmoke, at 38 one-hours, had 19 episodes on five discs per split volume. Season one of Perry Mason had 39 one-hours, hence the same split volume treatment (five discs each).

    Well, I quit waffling and got those Gunsmoke sets.

    And believe it or not, we're less than a month from 18 and 19. The end is in sight! Wouldn't surprise me to hear TSOD announce season 20 for April somewhere just before 18 and 19 are released.

    When that final (20th) go is released, will there be just the episodes, or will there be some kind of bonuses, as the last couple of releases have apparently had?

    Murder She Wrote 4 movie collection, after realizing it wasn't in the complete series set and I didn't have it

    Duel blu-ray, because my recent Gunsmoke watching made me want to see Chester vs. a Tractor Trailer.

    And yes, Duel counts as TV, since it began life as a TV movie!

    I hadn't cracked open my Gunsmoke sets yet, which is a good thing. Because they're going back to Amazon! Why? Target's buy 2 get 1 free sale. After the shuffle, it will net me the upcoming Gunsmoke seasons 18 and 19 for free, which is a much better price for them than I expected to pay.

    So, for those of you wanting S18 and 19, if you have another comparably priced set or movie you want, Target has a sale going on and overall, you'll get your sets for a decent price.

    And yes, shockingly, pre-orders are included. Thanks, big red circle.

    Hey, thanks a lot for the heads-up re: that Target "Buy 2 get 1 Free" sale, Robert! I just ordered The Defenders S1 and Dragnet 1968 and got Gunsmoke S16 for free using that deal. Target's prices for both The Defenders and Dragnet were the same as Amazon's. I wasn't planning on any disc purchases this month, but that's too good of a deal to pass up.

    Just bought The Twilight Zone complete series on Blu-Ray for $60 after tax at Deep Discount. Price is tough to beat and with the recent CBS news, I decided it's best to finally grab it after wanting it ever since the original Image Entertainment release first appeared.

    I also got a lot of tv sets for Christmas last month as well. The complete series sets for A-Team, Hogan's Heroes, and The Rockford Files (Blu-Ray). Also got season 4 of Dennis the Menace (My last season I needed), season 1 of the Patty Duke Show, the Shout Factory Ozzie & Harriet set, and the single sided rereleases of season 1 of Adam-12 and Emergency!.

    Since they're tv content, I also got two Bob Hope sets for Christmas. 'Bob Hope: Hope for the Holidays' and the compilation of his Christmas specials from the Vietnam years.

    Bonanza seasons 1-3.

    I'm contemplating if I should pick up the rest of them, since the last 4 seasons are a huge question mark right now.

    Ordered season 5 of "The Beverly Hillbillies" on DVD from Deep Discount. Maybe before I keel over from old age CBS will finish the series.

    FWIW - Amazon US has S3 pretty cheap right now - $14.07 new or as low as $8 used (but w/$4 shipping really isn't that much better than new).

    Even though you have S1 and S2 (I'm guessing you have S1) you might want to consider the UK Complete Series release. It's region free and usually less expensive than its US counterpart (and less than completing the series with the individual releases). Right now it's in the $75 range shipped to the US from Amazon UK. Both the US and UK use the Megapak things that some hate (but I happen to like). The outer boxes are also different. I purchased the UK one some time back and am quite pleased with it.

    The best season of all, imo. Don't miss “The Fear-Maker”, “The Saboteur”, “The Enemies”.​
