Wow, amazing. This is how Bonanza deserves to be seen. Full episodes in absolute mint condition, special features for the avid fan. And complete seasons to enjoy in full. This is a first rate boxset, recommended to anyone who likes Bonanza and great TV Western fun. A must have, can't wait to proceed with the other seasons.
Five star seems insufficient, I'd give it 100 ****

HASH(0x9afff3d8) out of 5 stars Worth the Wait! 19 Sept. 2009
By M. Hughes - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
To be completely honest, I already had the German DVDs of seasons 1-6, but I figure you just can't have too much Bonanza. I'm sorry it took so long but it's still worth the wait. The color is crystal, the picture gorgeous, the sound perfect, and the special features are terrific. I watched six episodes today and two yesterday and I bet I'll get another dozen knocked out before the weekend is over -- Bonanza never gets old. And having it on DVD with the original music, with special features, and in a format that means you don't have to plug up the region free player or watch some fuzzy public domain piece is just so special!

I grew up during Bonanza's first run -- we are the same age. I was born in July '59; the series debuted in September of that year. I still remember sitting on the floor of our little apartment in Chicago eagerly watching and learning my moral code from Bonanza and shows like it. There are worse ways to grow up. This was a great show and though I have watched it many times since, it's either been in syndication with chunks cut for more commercials, or on fuzzy public domain DVDs with hollow sound and weird music. When I bought the German DVDs, even then I found an occasional odd piece cut. And figuring out the German menus and bringing up the English soundtrack is something I could figure out, but it is wonderful not to have to! I'm loving this boxed set and eagerly awaiting season 2. Don't let it be too long, TPTB!!!

HASH(0x9abf9228) out of 5 stars When men were men and women.... weren't. 17 Sept. 2009
By William Smith - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Bonanza of course sits at the very cradle of television itself. There really isn't much to say that fans do not already know in regards to the series. First and foremost it was the acting that brought the well rounded scripts to life. Not just the lead stars -- Bonanza had the absolute luxury of dipping into the well of every one of the greatest character, bit, and journeymen actors in the HISTORY of television.. you heard right, in the HISTORY of the medium. After all, great 'guest stars' are what separates the good shows and the classic shows. I dare you to watch even ONE episode and not think to yourself -- wait, wasn't he/she from.... and chances are they were and they were amazing in it too!

On a technical level I found the packaging to be handsome, the transfer to be nice, the extras competent (since most shows of this age have NO extras), the price though high is well worth it. A definite buy.

In light of today it's hard to even comprehend a nightly line up such as Bonanza, the Twilight Zone, and the Andy Griffith Show.. It's also hard to imagine a cast in which it is quite possible that a Michael Landon is the weakest link in the chain.. all I can say is never again. The beauty of true drama has been drained completely out of modern tv and I thank Paramount for helping us all remember when there was a right and a wrong, there was a time to fight, and a time to give thanks.. this show truly is a Bonanza in every sense of the word.

PS.. Where on Earth is Season 2 Vol 2 of the Big Valley.......????

HASH(0x9aa8fb58) out of 5 stars Finally! 15 Sept. 2009
By A* - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I have been waiting for this box set for ages! And it has finally arrived. I wasn't around when this show first aired. But I remember my first viewing of it sometime in the 90's (I know, really late to the party) and I fell in LOVE! Ugh, there was just something about it that made me obsessed with it. For some strange reason there is a sense of tranquility that I got from that one viewing that there just doesn't seem to be on TV anymore.

From that one viewing, I started watching it religiously, it came on as a two hour block. And I watched every flippin' two dang hours, every dang day of the week. And was happy to find out that they spazzed out with marathons of it on weekends! I was in Bonanza heaven! And then the networks took it from me! No more Little Joe, Hoss - Adam! I had some serious withdrawals. And I was not only shocked but a little bit upset to find out that this classic television show was not available on DVD!

But that has been fixed. The packaging is OK. Nothing to rave about. It doesn't even come in a box! You just get two dvd cases. Would it have killed Paramount to give us loyal viewers a customized box! You do get a summary of each episode and you do get the original theme song. Yes, I find that very important. On youtube, you get some bastardized version and when I want my Bonanza I want the original. The discs look great, a bump in quality than what they usually look like on television. The extras are not mind blowing, some of them consist of: alternate pilot ending, a tribute remembering Michael Landon/Dan Blocker etc.

I don't have to recommend the show to those who love it, but for those who don't, give it a chance.

HASH(0x9a835f6c) out of 5 stars Excellent value and entertainment 29 Oct. 2009
By Kaylee Ranger - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
The first volume has the lion's share of the special features, and the second volume has the lion's share of the excellent episodes. I advise anyone to buy this two volume set rather than settling for one or the other.

The picture, sound, music--all of that is excellent. The menus are easy to navigate, and the photo galleries and interviews are interesting and informative.

I found the first half of season 1 to be a bit uneven, but the second half makes up for it with excellent stories and guest stars, and was enough to make me think seriously about purchasing season 2 when it appears.

I don't like seeing classic shows with 2-volume seasons released--but we're talking about 8 discs here, loaded with goodies, and 32 fifty-minute episodes of an iconic American television show. It's well worth the money.

HASH(0x9a7f6720) out of 5 stars Bonanza Has Never Been Better 26 Nov. 2009
By Ja-ja - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I've held off buying any Bonanza episodes for years, waiting until they got it right--picture, sound, music, and other aspects pertaining to remastering. As far as I can tell, this is what we've all been waiting for. And yes, the scoring is the original music. Although the packaging does seem substantial, I do wish it was not designed so that a disc often has to be removed in order to read some episode descriptions. However, we rarely get everything we want, and the all important content is superb! I can hardly wait for the offering of season 2!
