I always feel good watching this show.
Chester or Festus?
Hold on, let me pass the ipad to my dad.
I liked the early seasons, it got kind of stale after about season 10 or so, but 10 great seasons is pretty damned good. I was always more of a Maverick fan. Bonanza sucked, also.
Dude, Gunsmoke is for all ages.
I grew up watching that show with my granpa
Yes but you said you liked the early seasons. Chester left in season 9. Festus went full time in season 10.
It was like a western.
I still liked Festus better, he was the best part about the later seasons and became his own character. Chester was a throwaway character in the early Dillon heavy episodes.
I'll have to ask my folks if they remember that show.
James Arness was Peter Graves' (mission impossible) brother.
I disagree. Chester was a strong character on the show. In his later episodes he was given more camera time and handled dangerous situations just like Dillon.
f-troop, mchales navy, Daniel boone, bonanza, ya baby!
I like Festus too.
Hello, this is Splash's dad. You guy's are really old. LOL.
I'm not THAT old, I just grew up on Westerns and especially Spaghetti Westerns.
