I had some very fond memories of The Gomer Pyle Show during its' run and I'm happy to say this first season set didn't disappoint in the least.

The years of its' initial run was a time when a plethora of military related shows graced the TV screens of homes throughout North America.Shows like Rat Patrol and Combat gave us the serious side of things while shows like McHales Navy(I'm anxiously awaiting THIS show to come out!) and of course this one the Gomer Pyle Show.

This show gave us an already familiar and likable character from the then popular Andy Griffith Show and put him into his own show.To make the transition more smooth for the TV audience they created an entire Griffith episode for just that purpose(included in this set..a VERY nice touch).From then on the producers and writers of the new show started to flesh out and create a totally lovable character in the form of new USMC recruit Pvt.Gomer Pyle.The able and very talented Jim Nabors rose to the occasion brilliantly and helped create one of the most memorable TV characters ever.Gomer could be a bumbler and pull some boners but his down home charm and sensibilities underscored the fact that he was far from stupid.He didn't have a mean bone in his body,always looked to the best inside everyone and did everything with the best of intentions.In other words a totally likable/lovable person.

Now of course to counter so much goodness there has to be a foil.And that took the form of one Sgt.Carter portrayed with great gusto and pinnache by Frank Sutton.His character was a 15 year decorated Korean career Marine vet and he played the tough as nails DI to a tee.But as tough and Marine as he was he did have a soft side and was always perplexed at why Gomer liked him.

Audio: The only audio track on this set is a Dolby Digital English Mono Mix. It is clear sounding and I have no complaints

Subtitles: There are no subtitles on the set but it is close-captioned in English only.

HASH(0xa12c3da4) out of 5 stars GOLLY! It's about time!! Sept. 15 2006
By Hamming It Up - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Although I was more of a fan of Seasons 2 and 3, I am so happy to see that Gomer Pyle USMC is FINALLY being released on DVD!! My VHS tapes are so worn from the constant playing! The first Season is not to be missed though. Gomer coming right out of Mayberry RFD/Andy Griffith and straight into the Marines to face the sweet tender hearted quiet Sgt. Carter (not!). On a side note, Frank Sutton was truly an incredible powerful actor, and his early death in 1971 from a heart attack was unfortunate. He was in many movies prior to Gomer...too many to mention. One of my all time favorite actors. I can't wait until this December!!! I will be rush ordering this one for sure!! Highly recommended!

HASH(0xa12c3df8) out of 5 stars One of the best comedies ever Jan. 31 2007
By Garry Flora - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
After waiting for the first season of this series to be released for years,it was just as hilarious as I remembered. Jim Nabors was sensational as Gomer Pyle, but the real key to the success of the show was the brilliant performance given by Frank Sutton as Sgt. Carter. His was one of a small group of contenders for the funniest performance given by an actor in TV sitcom history. With current TV nothing but reality garbage, American Idol dribble and endless news and talk shows ad-nauseum, what a pleasure it is to pop a show like this in the DVD player and enjoy something truly original, creative and funny.

HASH(0xa12c60f0) out of 5 stars We're not getting any younger-- but "GOMER" is! Dec 19 2006

Okay, I'm a Vietnam Vet. I've heard Marines complaining that

Gomer spent 4-years stationed in California while THEY were

on SECOND tours in-country. With that said, Jim Nabors has

O-F-T-E-N said he never forgets that many of the "REAL" stars

of the show, ACTUAL MARINES (seen in the opening credits) are

dead and buried from injuries suffered in Vietnam. I'll buy

THAT... and this DVD-set, too!

HASH(0xa12c660c) out of 5 stars Gomer Pyle Goes The Extra Mile Jan. 18 2007
By William Hott - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
It didn't take long to view the entire first season of "Gomer Pyle USMC". I enjoyed the comedy back in the 60's and it's still enjoyable today. Even the "Jim Nabors Hour" clip brought back memories. The quality is very good. It was also interesting to hear Jim Nabors and Ronnie Schell describing how it was working on the series. I hope Paramount will release the entire series on DVD.

HASH(0xa12c3eb8) out of 5 stars Excellent, Excellent, Excellent July 3 2007

Being 46 yrs old, I used to watch this show when I was 4 yrs old & up. I hadn't seen an episode even as a rerun since the early 70's and all I can say is that it wasn't a SURPRISE, SURPRISE, SURPRISE at all at how good this show still is! From the packaging to the picture and sound quality it has been great! My children ages six and four, my wife and I watched an average of 2 episodes a night until we had seen all 5 discs and there wasn't a flaw in any disc. THIS SHOW LIKE MANY SITCOMS FROM THAT ERA PROVES YOU DON'T HAVE TO BE DIRTY, NASTY OR VULGAR TO BE FUNNY! I am now going to order season 2. A must for families looking for wholesome family friendly entertainment!
