NOTE: Timeless has now released season's 3 & 4, but season's 1 & 2 are still unavailable on DVD. They have informed us that their intention is to release them, but that they are still missing some episodes from those seasons so they are unable to put together a complete season for either.

The 1960's were a boom time for television westerns, with over 32 hours of prime time every week, on just three channels! One of the most watched and beloved of those shows was Laramie, which ran from 1959 to 1963, and is considered by many to be one of the best family westerns of all time. Now, TMG and NBC Universal bring you all 32 episodes of Laramie - The Final Season in color on six DVD discs.
Originally airing in black and white, the series centered on the story of two brothers and a drifter who run a stage-stop in the Wyoming Territory of the late 1870's. John Smith (Cimarron City) plays the older brother, Slim Sherman, and Robert Crawford Jr. (brother of The Rifleman's Johnny Crawford) plays Sherman's younger brother Andy. When Jess Harper, played by the iconic Robert Fuller (Wagon Train, Emergency!), drifts into Laramie, he joins up with the brothers in their struggle against long odds.
John Smith and Robert Fuller brought great chemistry to their roles in Laramie. Their opposing temperaments and strengths complimented each other on screen like few other duos in the western television genre. It is interesting to note that the producers originally wanted the two actors to switch roles. Robert and John dug in their heels, and the correctness of their decision is immediately apparent as you watch them interact!
After two seasons in black and white, the third and fourth seasons were filmed in color.
