This review is from: The Virginian - Complete Series 1 [DVD] (DVD)
I remember watching this in the early 70s as a small child and it has stood the test of time well.
The 70 minute plus episodes give a better chance for plot and character development and the all round professionalism and high standard, from intelligent stories, to classy production, to direction and acting, is manifest.
The Virginian's plots often play out important issues and conflicts surrounding the creation of a State from a wild territory. The high calibre guest stars and many character actors of the day, who appear to have been queuing up to work on the show, help immeasurably.
There's a lot here for the money and if you like classic TV westerns you'll like this, it's one of the best.
