Synopsis

Two former outlaws try to start fresh in this Western series from the mind of Glen Larson (Magnum P.I.). Kid Curry (Ben Murphy) and Hannibal Heyes (Pete Duel) may have new names (the Smith and Jones of the title) and new lives, but their past keeps finding them. To get a pardon from the governor, they must attempt to live crime-free lives, a difficult task with zealous bounty hunters and bandits around every corner. This release presents the first series of the classic show from the 1970s.

5.0 out of 5 stars Timeless and Wonderful 7 Aug 2007
By Dodster TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
Was it really 1971? I can still remember the opening credits from way back then when the series aired on BBC 2.
This is the classic comedy western series. It's timeless because it's set in the West. Some of the music is a bit 70's, but for the most part it could have been filmed any time.
The chemistry between Pete Duel and Ben Murphy is excellent.
If you haven't watched it before, the premise is a couple of likeable rogue robbers have the opportunity to go straight and earn amnesty. The only problem is they have to stay straight for a year and only they, the governor and an old friend, now turned sheriff, can know about it.
The Series revolves around their escapades and efforts to achieve this while still being on the most wanted list.
If this genre is for you, it pushes all the buttons. It also comes highly recommended in the family entertainment category. Buy it or rent it, but watch it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Alias Smith and Jones - First Season 24 Jun 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I'd give this six stars if I could. I was fifteen when Alias Smith and Jones first hit BBC2 and the memory has stayed with me ever since. It was an instant success and the cheerful, self-effacing style of AS&J was irresistable. (I read somewhere that at its height the BBC was receiving 5,000 letters a week demanding more episodes and rapid re-runs).

For the first time we had a Western series that featured two amiable rogues as the lead characters. The level of scripting and the storylines were, for the most part, very original and highly intelligent, but what carried the series was the free-wheeling approach of the late Pete Duel (as Hannibal Heyes) and Ben Murphy (Kid Curry). Some of the stories involved quite sophisticated "stings", making it almost a Western version of the present-day Hustle, and clearly AS&J was closely modelled on Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid (and a good premise at that).

Watching the pilot episode is just so uplifting and reminded me just how good some US television can be; it's not all about designer suits and hairdos. And essentially, unlike many old TV series, AS&J has not dated. It looks great, it's funny, uplifting and so fresh in its approach. I'm not sure that anything's come near it since. The only negative point is that the sad and untimely death of Pete Duel cost the series a key player after he'd filmed around 32 episodes. The dozen or so that followed were of a similar quality but it wasn't easy to replace him, although Roger Davis made a gallant effort.

I could start quoting memorable one-liners or dialogues from the series. I'll resist the temptation and just affirm that this is, without reservation, an excellent series. Buy it and enjoy it!

Like many this is a nostalgia trip, but as this 70's series was set in the 19th century as westerns are it doesn't look that dated, and it still retains the charm from all those years ago - if you loved it then, you'll love it now - a real feelgood programme without being too sickly - just buy it and enjoy one of the best US series ever made.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bring on Series 2! 9 Aug 2009
Format:DVD
A timeless classic now, fondly remembered from the initial broadcasts by us Baby Boomers. The storylines are simple tales of the triumph of good over evil, well scripted, beautifully set and cast, and wonderfully filmed. No gratuitous violence (and little enough gunplay), fast moving, and just sufficiently tongue-in-cheek to be fun for the family.

I only wish the studio would get a move on and release the next series - what on Earth are they waiting for?

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant 6 Feb 2010
By Andy O'Boogie TOP 500 REVIEWER TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I loved this when it first came out (in the 70's?) and it is still good to watch. 14 episode plus the 2 part pilot. Pete Duel and Ben Murphy worked so well together. It's a tragedy what happened to Pete Duel he was such a talented actor. The western was very popular in the 60's and 70's. In my opinion this was the best. The quality of the DVD picture is excellent (as long as you set your TV to 4:3!!).

5.0 out of 5 stars They Don't Make 'em Like This Any More! 21 Aug 2009
Format:DVD
This was the must-see show that saw the homework pushed to one side for 50 glorious minutes. It's so long ago, that I used to watch it on black and white tv the first time around. Though many of us watched it again and again on later reruns and probably have a few woolly VCRs around - well apart from the later series (WHY are we waiting?!!), you can ditch those into the nearest charity bag.

Butch and Sundance showed the way for tv westerns to go - the genre had been hugely popular in the early 60s, largely thanks to the "new" ITV channels, who imported many shows such as Maverick. Constantly evolving with the times in which they were made, later favourites such as The High Chaparral emerged (and why is that not out on DVD, pray tell?) then Butch and Sundance blew us all away with it's fun take on the legend, and inspired tv producers to do something similar with AS & J

The real-life tragic death of Pete Duel left us with these matchless classics. Though Roger Davis did a great job, he could not hope to match Pete Duel's comic but thoughtful charisma. As for the super-gorgeous Ben Murphy - who now is probably retired (what a thought!) - posters of him adorned many a teenage bedroom up and down the land, and he was, in his time, as popular with the teen set as David Cassidy! What a guy!
