If you're a Baby Boomer, you'll remember this amazing series. If you're a Gen-Xer, you remember MacGiver. And if you're a Gen-Y-er, you've probably encountered the poor film version and you deserve to treat yourself to the genuine article. Before MacG there was Jim West, a handsome lady's man with tight pants and a weapon in his...boot. His sidekick, Artemus Gordon, was a master of disguise, and together they fought the forces of evil on behalf of the Union under Ulysseus S. Grant. I loved everything about this series, the villains, the action, the plot twists, the last minute heroics. And this beautiful production brought it all back to me. Everything about it, from the packaging to the picture quality to the liner notes, is top-notch, and it's practically a gift--the entire series for an extremely low price! This is one of the best purchases I've made from Amazon.

Timeless. Immortal. From the inimitable theme song when theme songs were frequently better than the shows and an artform all by themselves - Hawaii 5.0, Gilligan's Island, Star Trek, Mary Tyler Moore, Mission Impossible - to the neato panels for commercial breaks, this show was brilliant: writing, directing, acting, stage design and even the stunts. Never took itself seriously but everyone involved obviously took the production seriously. There isn't a bad episode in all of these, and you have Robert Conrad offering commentary. It's all fun. Don't think McGiver, think Dr Who with better set design, casting, and no cheesy costumes.

Great packaging on the May 12 2015 reprint (or unlimited edition as it is listed at tvshowdvd.com), nice, tight and compact for 26 discs including all 4 seasons. The slip box contains to plastic DVD holders. In one is seasons 1-3 at 20 discs, and season 4 has its own DVD holder with 6 discs. Track listing is on the discs and in the cover sheet for each holder. As is typical with the CBS complete series cases, there are no episode guide booklets, although the design on the package is great and embossed!

The reality of the show being amazingly remastered, with cleaned up picture and sound from what I imagine were the original film print masters, makes the quality of show on a HD upconverting DVD player a beauty!

Having come from an age after the show was originally aired, I found the oddball stories clear and refreshing, with excellent actors in the guest roles. As a film and TV historian, I enjoy playing who's who with this show, and the 60s TV era it came from.

Robert Conrad, the production's lead actor, as James t. West, is arguably the inspiration for Star Trek's Captain James t. Kirk. Fans of either character should instantly identify with the lead as a true 60s invention: Rogue, persuader, charmer, hero.

The female guest actors are great! Their casting director really went to town to make this show stylish.

All in all, I would say that this show is a great priced purchased or any winner.

This was one of my favorite show as a kid, I was shocked to see that they were in colour after the second season, but then again we had a black and white TV when I was growing op. :)
The show is just as fun to re-watch, I only vaguely remember the episodes here and there so it's almost all new to me and still holds up today. :)

I LOVED THIS SERIES WHEN IT FIRST CAME OUT AS THE WEEKLY SERIES ON TV, SO WHEN I SAW IT AVAILABLE ON AMAZON I SENT FOR IT RIGHT AWAY. I WAS NOT DISAPPOINTED.
I LIKED THE INVENTIONS THEY CAME UP WITH TO FIGHT THE VILLAINS. EACH STORY IS WELL WRITTEN AND SEEMS PLAUSIBLE. OF COURSE THEIR PRIVATE CAR ON THE TRAIN IS
CERTAINLY A PLUS. IT ALSO HAS IT'S OWN LITTLE INVENTIONS. ANOTHER REAL PLUS FOR ME IS THE LACK OF SWEARING. I THINK THIS SERIES WILL APPEAL TO THE OLDER
GENERATION. IT TAKES ONE BACK TO AN ERA WHEN LIFE WAS DIFFERENT THAN IT IS TODAY. THE CHARACTER JAMES WEST IS LIKE A WESTERN JAMES BOND.

I never saw this series as a kid but I love it. It's like James Bond in the Wild West with a bit of McGuyver! Although some of the stories are off the wall, it really does reflect the outlook of the times which is a lot of fun.

This is a must for anyone who loves westerns. The first two seasons are in black and white but that doesn't take away from the excitement of the series. I do recall the series when it was on TV and I didn't take much notice to it but now in my not so young years I appreciate the series a lot more. I don't know why I just do. The way it is packaged is unique and classy. Just the way the series was Classy.
