    It was very difficult to not start viewing this set as soon as it arrived but alas as a Christmas present I held off until 25 DEC. As a hardcore Gunsmoke fanatic ,having seen the first Gunsmoke episode as a 8 year old boy in 1955, it is always great to see my favorite western uncut and restored. As with the original 50th Anniversary set there is an excellent balance of episodes.
    There are not as many extras on this set. The theme of the Directors collection allowed me to hear for the first time Peter Graves (Jim Arness’s brother) talk about their experiences. Other than Jim’s book there is almost no info regarding them together. I was disappointed in the radio episodes, the quality was terrible. I am a collector and I know that many of the radio episodes exist in pristine condition. I’m afraid that some viewers will possibly think that all of the radio episodes only exist in the condition of those on the DVD.
    I would really like to see the black and white hour long episodes featured more on the next set because they are the ones that get very little to no cable airtime.
    This set is a must have for the serious Gunsmoke collector, the opening gives a goodbye to Dennis Weaver and it is sad that nearly everyone associated with the series is gone.

    I bought The Gunsmoke Complete DVD Collection off of I later found out that was not an Amozon product but came from a company called TVDVDMania. First of all it toolk forever to receive the collection which is like 105 DVD’s as it is supposed to consists of all episodes of Gunsmoke over 20 years. Well I finally received them (from China) and as I started watching them I started having problems from DVD’s being unreadable to having only one episode on a DVD to DVD’s not containg the Menu of episodes.I notified the company that all of the cases was damaged in shipping except one and that I had a problem with one of the DVD’s.
    This was after only watching a couple. Their response was that I would have to pay shipping and handling for every DVD that was bad.My response was that it would take over a year to watch al of the DVD’s if I watched 2 hours everyday to see how many were bad and it would cost me many times what I orginally paid for the set to pay shipping from China with the volume of Bad DVD’s that I was now Seeing. I have now watched 20 of the DVD’s and over half of them has problems and there are at least 40-50 episodes missing and TVDVDMania will not respond to any of my emails.
    This company is a nightmare to deal with. If you see their name run the other way.
    I can not beleive Amazon has alligned itself with a company of this stature.
