 Gunsmoke: The Complete Sixteenth Season

 Review by Suzanne Lanoue 12/5/19

I used to watch this show growing up. My dad loved it. For me, as a child, it was usually too serious. I prefered lighter westerns like "Bonanza" or "Big Valley." Season 16 is part of the later years of the show, after Dennis Weaver left. The show went on for 20 years, which was quite an accomplishment.

The ratings were still pretty good in this season. We got to see all of the favorites: Marshall Dillon, Miss Kitty and Doc, as well as Festus and Newly. The stories are very good. I think modern audiences would still enjoy them. Older people should love them.

The fun of watching a lot of these old shows is that they have great guest-stars that you might recognize from movies or other shows.

There aren't a lot of features, but they have two authors of books about "Gunsmoke," Ben and Beckey, discussing the show, and this season.
