Gunsmoke; second to none
Subconsciously I'm always comparing today's actors with the core actors of Gunsmoke, and today's actors come up short. Burt Reynolds In the book foreword of James Arness biography tells it best how behind the scenes how everyone took it so seriously that they were telling a story to show pretty much the truth of how it was in the late 1800s often based on true stories. The first half hour, black-and-white shows in my opinion were the best followed by the one hour black and whites, but after the 10th season it seemed to just become a basic well done drama, but I read that was caused by many people saying the early shows were too violent but more enjoyable to me as they were gritty as it probably actually was.
