    Not much new here, but still plenty of bang for the buck The Essential TV Westerns 150 Episode Pack may not have many surprises – most of these shows have been available for some time – but if you’re just starting you’re collection, you can’t beat the price. The videos are mostly in good shape (the night scenes are pretty murky, but that’s a minor caveat IMHO) and you get a nice mix of programs.The Adventures of Jim Bowie (1956) – this show, starring Scott Forbes, ran two years and was set in 1830s New Orleans before the title character moved to San Antonio – and his date with destiny. As such, it’s really more of a “southern” than a “western”, but the unusual setting is what sets it apart from other contemporary offerings – that, and the protagonist’s primary weapon, his nine-inch long Bowie knife. Episodes included in this set are: Gone to Texas, Jackson’s Assassination, Jim Bowie Comes Home, Monsieur Francois, Osceola, Outlaw Kingdom and The Select Females.The Adventures of Kit Carson (1951) – In this early western series Kit Carson (Bill Williams) and his Mexican friend El Toro (Don Diamond) roamed the frontier in the 1880s looking for adventure. Plot lines and dialogue were pretty advanced for a show aimed at the kiddies and Williams made a likeable hero. Diamond’s El Toro character was also unusual because, unlike most sidekicks, he frequently offered sage advice and was an effective fighter when the going got tough, while still having enough rough edges to serve as an effective foil for the lead character. The series ran for four years. Episodes included in this set are: Bad Men of Marysville, The Baron of Black Springs, Border City, Border Corsairs, Danger Hill, Devil of Angel’s Camp, The Hero of Hermosa, Road to Destiny, Road to Monterey, Singing Wires, Thunder over Inyo and Trouble in Tuscarora.Annie Oakley (1954) – Gail Davis starred as the titular sharp-shootin’ pigtailed frontier heroine, who always managed to rescue her lawman boyfriend from the hands of notorious owlhoots who threatened their small desert community. The kid’s series, produced by Gene Autry’s Flying `A’ production company, ran for three years and is represented by these episodes: Ambush Canyon, Annie and the Leprechauns, Annie and the Lily Maid, Annie Calls Her Shots, Annie Finds Strange Treasure, Annie Gets Her Man, Annie Trusts a Convict, Bull’s Eye, Dilemma at Diablo, The Dude Stagecoach, Gunplay, The Hardrock Trail, Justice Guns, Shadow of Sonoma and Sharpshooting Annie.Bonanza (1959) – This landmark western series, one of the first to be shot entirely in color, struggled to find an audience at first, but when the program finally hit its stride it spent most of its 14 seasons in the Nielsen Top-10. Episodes include: The Abduction, The Avenger, Blood on the Land, Breed of Violence, The Courtship, Death at Dawn, Escape to Ponderosa, The Fear Merchants, The Mission, Showdown, The Stranger and The Trail Gang.Cowboy G-Men (1952) – Russell Hayden and Jackie Coogan starred as undercover federal officers operating in the American West in this series that ran for but a single season (39 episodes). Episodes included in this set are: Beware – No Trespassing, Gypsy Traders, Hush Money, Mysterious Decoy, Rawhiders, Sawdust Swindle, The Secret Mission and The Woman Mayor.Dusty’s Trail (1973) – Think Gilligan’s Island set on the frontier. Due to the ineptitude of an assistant scout (Bob Denver), two wagons become separated from the rest of the train and blunder around the West while trying to reach California. Any similarity between the characters in this series and those from “Island” are purely intentional. That fact, and the extremely annoying laugh track, caused this viewer to wonder why this show wasn’t put out of its misery after the pilot was lensed. Episodes foisted on the buyer by this set include: Brookhaven USA, The Cavalry Is Coming, Duel in Disguise, Half Moon, Here Comes the Grooms, Horse of Another Color, John J. Callahan, Love Means Bananas, Magician, Nothing to Crow About, Phoney Express, Then There Were Seven, Treasure of C. Harry Motley and Witch’s Trail.The Gabby Hayes Show (1950) – Gabby frames heavily edited 1940s PRC westerns with his tall-tale spinning asides. The six episodes included in this set have no splash frame identifying the episode title, but most feature Eddie Dean.Judge Roy Bean (1956) – For thirty nine episodes, Edgar Buchanan played the titular self-appointed jurist of Langtry, Texas, who claimed to be “the law west of the Pecos.” Episodes included in this set are: Ah Sid Cowboy, Border Raiders, Citizen Romero, Connie Comes to Town, Judge of Pecos Valley, Letty Leaves Home, Slightly Prodigal, Spirit of the Law, The Travelers and Vinegarone.Northwest Passage (1958) – If “The Adventures of Jim Bowie” was a `southern’ than this series was a `northwestern’. Major Robert Rogers (Keith Larsen) and his fellow explorers (Buddy Ebsen…
