It's the Moore the merrier as Jack Kelly teams up with new cast member Roger Moore for the fourth rollicking season of Maverick. Faces may change, but the card and con games remain the same, as Beau Maverick (Moore) deals himself in with his cousin Bart (Kelly) as they take on murder frame-ups, crooked sheriffs, cursed goldmines, comely witches and more in this complete 32-episode collection. Featuring appearances by Spaghetti Western icon Lee Van Cleef, Oscar®-winner* George Kennedy and The Time Tunnel's Robert Colbert as the third Maverick brother Brent, Season Four highlights also include James Garner's final series appearance (The Maverick Line), director Robert Altman's episode “Bolt from the Blue” and “Hadley's Hunters,” featuring cameos by Warner Bros.' legendary Western stars John Russell and Peter Brown (Lawman), Ty Hardin (Bronco), Will Hutchins (Sugarfoot) and Clint Walker (Cheyenne).

EDIT---UPDATE---February .13. 2015---Coupon codes for the WB Shop are getting scarcer and scarcer----I can occasionally find a $10 off of $50 but it doesn't usually work on discounted or Archive titles. Now that the minimum for free shipping has been raised from $45 to $75 it makes any $10 off of $50 coupons I can find effectively $10 off of $75 or $5 off of $50 (once you deduct the $5 shipping charge).
The WB Shop is having a SALE for the Valentine's Day weekend. Sale ends February 16, 2015 at 11:59 PM, PST. They are offering.......$5 off of $25, .......$15 off of $60 ........and $30 off of $100......... This is a very good deal for their replicated/pressed disc box sets as they are already 20% off. I have checked the sale and everything I've tried has worked---- You can put other Archive sets than those listed under the Valentine's Day sale section---- you can combine Archive titles with titles from their regular sale section and the discount still applies. No coupon code is needed the discount applies automatically at checkout. The $30 off of $100 is the best deal (as long as you wish to buy that much) as it is not only the biggest discount but you have to get to $75 to get free shipping.
If you already own all five seasons of `Maverick', you may wish to consider the spin-off `Bret Maverick' or `Nichols' both of which star James Garner. All four seasons of `Sugarfoot' are available in this sale---- no dedicated `Maverick' fan would want to be without season one of `Sugarfoot' because of certain guest appearances----need I say more? Also, seasons one, two and three of `Bronco' are now available. Seasons four onwards of `Cheyenne' are available as replicated/pressed discs (season one is available as replicated/pressed regular (non- Archive) Warner release).
I have no idea whether most fans of `Maverick' also like pre-codes----I do anyway----Pre-codes are films that were made between 1929 through mid-1934 before the Hays production code went into effect----There is the `William Powell at Warner Bros' set (all pre-codes) and Volumes 5, 6, 7 & 8 of the Warner pre-code series `Forbidden Hollywood' are available as replicated/pressed discs (volume 4 is out of print and only available as DVD-R----volumes 1, 2, & 3 are still available as regular (non- Archive) Warner releases).
Please not that I am still not sure whether `Bret Maverick' is or is not produced as replicated/pressed discs----I think it is but I can not be sure----all the others I have mentioned are replicated/pressed discs.
EDIT--UPDATE---February .19. 2014--- As of posting, the WB Shop is still offering Maverick Season 3 on pressed DVD's (not DVD-Rs)----But, again, only if you buy from them direct. If you want both 3 & 4 you can use the code SAVINGS for $20 off a $100 order. Seasons 3 & 4 are both 5 cents under $50 each----If you pick something cheap from the sale section you can use the coupon and still end up under $100. Be sure to check out through the WB Shop NOT the Warner Archive shop because the coupon code will not work through the Warner Archive shop.
To confirm that these are still available as pressed (replicated) discs-- go to WB Shop then click Warner Archive then click Replicated Discs on the sidebar on the left.
This will show you all the Warner Archive titles currently available on pressed (replicated) discs. As of 2012 Warner Archive has stated that they will be releasing all sets of 3 discs or more on pressed (replicated) discs first (again, only when purchased from the WB Shop direct and only while supplies last---after that they will switch to DVD-R).
FOR THOSE OUTSIDE THE U.S.----
Unfortunately, the WB Shop does not ship out side the U.S. However, for those that live outside the U.S. that want pressed/replicated discs there are some possible solutions.---- When Warner Archive releases a title on pressed discs they ship it out to other retailers----mostly---though not completely----as pressed discs. Thus, as long as Warner Archive is showing a title as available in their Replicated Discs section you are likely to receive pressed/replicated discs when ordering from another store. Many people have ordered Warner Archive sets from Movies Unlimited (ships to Canada and International) and received pressed/replicated discs. Also, many people have ordered Warner Archive sets from Import CDs (ships to Canada and International) and received pressed/replicated discs. From what I understand, the success rate of receiving pressed/replicated Warner Archive sets from Import CDs is, perhaps, not quite as high. However, as the prices at Import CDs are certainly not as high------you may decide it's worth the risk!
The reason why, when ordering from Amazon, you receive DVD-R's is that Amazon themselves manufactures the MOD (made on demand) products that they sell. This creates problems because Amazon downloads the content from online. There are often authoring problems---such as skips, glitches, ect. That's why if I buy a DVD that is only available on MOD/DVD-R I make sure that I buy it direct from the company or from a store that has. ----That way I make sure that it has been authored in the best way possible. It's true that, sometimes, even Amazon receives shipments of pressed/replicated Warner Archive sets. Some people have actually received pressed/replicated Warner Archive sets when purchasing from Amazon. However, that is the exception rather than the rule and is, I think,----even as an exception---becoming less common than before. It isn't very tempting to try to order from Amazon, anyway, as they have the highest price around right now.
Trying to get pressed/replicated Warner Archive sets out of Amazon would be pretty risky gambling----and remember----gambling is one thing Pappy told you to avoid!
HOW TO TELL IF YOU HAVE PRESSED/REPLICATED DISCS OR DVD-Rs
PRESSED/REPLICATED DVDs are always silver on the playing side. (That is, the side that you put face-down in to your player not the side with the title/art.)
DVD-Rs are never silver on the playing side. The playing side of a DVD-R is purple----the lighter the shade of purple, the higher the quality of the disc. For instance, Warner Archive DVD-Rs are a pale lilac/violet colour.
Most times, the personalities of the Mavericks are laid back, and that suits Roger Moore fine. He's certainly believable as a Maverick, except for the fact that no one has made mention of him in the previous three years, which takes getting used to, and is now os the prime center of attention whenever Bart refers to a relative. It's as if he forgot he had a brother named Bret.
It should be noted before I charge into the individual episodes of the fourth season, that with Moore or without, Maverick always had a formidable goal to try to achieve.
The challenge that Maverick had to meet week after week is: How to be Maverick?
Even with James Garner, it was not easy living up to the unique tone and spirit of Maverick.
There's much more in my full review of the 4th year of Maverick
in the new Riding Shotgun column on Comicsbulletin.com,
including many photos, including sequential sequences.
Even some photos of Edd Byrnes and
77 Cherokee Strip.
For Maverick fans, fans thinking of buying this set, and for those
interested in reading some tidbits about what was happening behind
Hang in there!
A real bonus is the superb quality of the DVDs, and also that these episodes have not been available for about 50 years.
I look forward to the last 13 episodes of series 5.
