James Arness is one of the best actor I've ever seen and he played a great part of the ultimate TV series - Gunsmoke which was produced by CBS and reigned the television screen for 2 decades. Its been labeled as one of the greatest TV series ever made in the history! Lots of western shows but this one really stood above all! From Matt Dillon to James Arness everything was perfect!! If you're looking for an essential TV show to watch Gunsmoke would be the best option!!! Some of us didn't saw the earlier episodes of this show because it started in 1950's. I also bought a copy at which provided me a very good copy of this show! No TV series can beat this one really undisputed show of all time! Its a good thing I got now the whole collection which I truly enjoy watching during my leisure time.

I saw James Arness at the Houston
Fat Stock Show (that is what it was called then) and got to shake his hand as he rode his horse around the arena. My first pet hamster was named Chester. Gunsmoke is my
favorite TV series of all times. Currently watching the last season
on TV Land.
