5.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining Feb. 16 2013

I love this series and miss the quality of television of the past. Too much garbage on TV today. This series and other old shows are my escape from the stupid, mind-numbing reality shows of today.

4.0 out of 5 stars An Improvement over Season Five! July 16 2012
By charlie bear - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
Part way into this season, 76 year old Charles Bickford who played Shiloh owner John Grainger died forcing yet another big change at the ranch. Truth is, Bickford was a mediocre replacement for the orignal owner Judge Garth, played by the meritorious Lee J Cobb. Bickford was crusty, stiff and too old for the part. Enter: Clay Grainger, John's brother who then took over the ranch (although John's absence was never fully developed in its explanation)
Sometimes replacement can be a good thing and this time it was clearly an improvement. Clay Grainger was played by none other than the venerable John McIntire who acted the role with a commanding and likeable presence. Mac had been in this position before having replaced the deceased Ward Bond part way thru the Wagon Train series. Make no mistake, McIntire is perfect in this role. Not only that, his real life wife Jeanette Nolan plays his character wife Holly in The Virginian.
This is truly a refreshing change, given Hollywood's obsession with westerns having only single and widowed Patriarchs and Matriarchs. Finally. A normal family(!)

The rest of the cast remains the same and the writing and production are top notch.
Season 6 is a step up from the previous year. Now only two seasons remain to make it to DVD.

4.0 out of 5 stars virginian episodes Oct. 11 2012
By paulf - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Here are capsule impressions from season six of "The Virginian," another year of upheaval for the graying series, which still kept to a fairly high standard.

THE RECKONING -- Guest stars, Charles Bronson, Miriam Colon
Vengeance-minded outlaw chief holds The Virginian and Elizabeth Grainger captive, but his wife's near-term pregnancy complicates matters. Plucky Sara Lane butts heads with Bronson while fighting to save Colon's baby and Drury's bacon in solidly constructed episode directed by Charles S. Dubin and scored by Bernard Herrmann. Odd presence of street smart Charles Grodin, playing a taciturn, buckskin-clad heavy, isn't too distracting.

THE LADY FROM WICHITA -- Guest stars, Joan Collins, Rose Marie
Saloonkeeper conceals her past when she arrives in Medicine Bow to collect inheritance. Leisurely outing allows plenty of elbow room for spunky duo of foxy Collins and wisecracking Rose Marie, both very likable.

STAR CROSSED -- Guest stars, Tom Tryon, Lisabeth Hush, Kiel Martin
Ryker puts his badge on the line to help a still-wanted former outlaw go straight. Script packs enough twists into mild story to maintain interest. Enzo Martinelli's sun-kissed cinematography is noteworthy, as is the acting of Gulager and Tryon. Gulager was getting his fill of the TV series grind and was about to permanently remove Ryker's star.

BITTER AUTUMN -- Guest stars, John Anderson, Richard X. Slattery
Seething ex-lawman buckles his gunbelt after his wife is accidentally killed by a drunken drover whose diseased herd has Medicine Bow on edge. The flinty Anderson excels as the angry widower struggling to keep a lid on his boiling rage. Plotty episode's only other distinction is the debut of new series regulars John McIntire and Jeanette Nolan as Clay and Holly Grainger. Although the two troupers, a real-life couple, were abruptly shoehorned into the series because of Charles Bickford's failing health, they lost no time making themselves at home on Shiloh range.

THE BARREN GROUND -- Guest stars, Collin Wilcox, Jay C. Flippen
To atone for an unavoidable killing, The Virginian agrees to locate a dying rancher's long-lost daughter, who is living as an Indian. Tense buildup to final showdown atones for story lapses mostly rooted in Wilcox's stiff-necked performance. Episode is notable for surprisingly candid and self-critical comments by Drury's character, enabling a rare peek inside The Virginian's wall of reserve.

EXECUTION AT TRISTE -- Guest stars, Robert Lansing, Sharon Farrell
In a near-deserted town, gunslinger with a death wish is determined to prod Trampas into a duel. Grim story by ace TV western writer John Dunkel suggests more eerie intent than lackluster production delivers. Lansing's scarily convincing performance and creepy bits by Cyril Delevanti, Percy Helton and James Nusser offer teasing glances at what episode could have been.

A SMALL TASTE OF JUSTICE -- Guest stars, Peter Brown, Susan Oliver, John Lupton
Town treed by cowboy gang turns to The Virginian for law and order. Drury's clear reluctance to risk his neck for people with no backbones typifies episode's shrewd reliance on dramatic logic instead of frenzied gunplay. Brown, who normally played lawmen, revels in his bully boy character, and youthful, gravel-voiced James Gammon is fun to watch as Brown's top goon.

JED -- Guest stars, Steve Ihnat, Brenda Scott, Sammy Jackson
Trampas persuades old saddle partner to work at Shiloh, unaware he has become a volatile gunman spying for ranchers plotting against homesteaders. Stout acting gives routine story a big lift. Ihnat's portrayal of a bitter loner who reclaims his humanity is freshly thought out to the smallest detail, such as using both hands to grip his six-shooter. Stuart Margolin brings simmering heat to his role as an unctuous, slithery villain.

THE GOOD-HEARTED BADMAN -- Guest stars, Peter Deuel, John Larch
Elizabeth is fascinated by wounded outlaw being sought by his gang and stalked by a relentless bounty hunter. First-rate episode, written by Robert Van Scoyk and directed by James Sheldon, conjures perilous situation for Lane, McIntire and Nolan in a woolly, wind-whipped setting. Deuel is magnetic as the charming scoundrel, and Anthony Zerbe performs with his usual zeal as a slimy killer.

STACEY
Stacey Grainger grows depressed after severe arm injury that won't heal disrupts a romance. Saving his best for last, Don Quine caps unremarkable recurring role with a poignant performance in artfully crafted episode directed by Leo Penn. Attractive role for blonde beauty Lee Kroeger as Stacey's fair weather sweetheart.

THE HANDY MAN -- Guest stars, Mel Torme, Tom Simcox
Secretive drifter befriended by Trampas is suspected of being a notorious gunslinger. Crooner Torme briefly put his songbook aside for acting and writing stint, and does respectable jobs on both fronts. Torme gives an effectively muted performance as the drifter, and his script provides a nicely shaded villainous role for Simcox and bright moments for Nolan and McClure, who has seldom been more ingratiating.

THE DECISION -- Guest stars, Kenneth Tobey, Monica Lewis, Ben Murphy
Proud sheriff quits for his worried wife's sake, but chafes at his new job as a Shiloh hand. The brick-topped Tobey, best remembered as the staunch hero in the horror classic "The Thing," lends seasoned authority to western story as comfortably familiar as a pair of old boots. Equally comfortable is the interplay of Drury and McClure, no less so at the end of season six than the beginning of season one.

3.0 out of 5 stars "The Virginian Season Six" Sept. 10 2012
By MT. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I bought the first two seasons of "The Virginian" and was completely satisfied with the shows. Season six has been somewhat disappointing. Despite the coming of John Mc Intire as the new owner of Shiloh, the childish scripts of several shows and the lack of the presence of the main characters on several episodes, The Virginian and Trampas, made those somewhat boring and uninteresting. Obviously, by season six the series had passed its best years. Still, several episodes are still top-notch and that made the investment on season 6 worthwhile.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is a series for all ages to learn from May 14 2012

I grew up watching this series and learned important values that hold true today. It's nice with nothing on t.v. these days but reality that isn't real. These stories have no date on the topics they cover and values they teach.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ultimate Virginian Fan June 21 2012
By EPTexasGal - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
There never was or will be a better show than "The Virginian". James Drury is the love of my live. I suffered and cried with him through all of the shows especially during "Flash of Darkness". I have seasons 1 through 6 and "The Men From Shiloh" on DVD and waiting for the Timeless Media Group to come out with 7 and 8. Who was the one that thought to change the title from The Virginian to the Men From Shiloh was a good idea? And change everything else on top of that from the clothes to the introduction, to the music, and gave Doug McClure a big mustache. It was such a mistake; it looked to me like they were out to kill the show.
