Chester was my favorite. When I saw reruns as a child I only saw the shows with Festus (Ken Curtis), & I never liked the show because of him. Later, I bought the original series where Dennis Weaver was the Deputy, wow what a pleasant surprise....and he was awesome!! He's so clean cut, always helpful and his acting skills were well played. The way he acted, with great humor and simplicity, he certainly was the best. Thank you, Chester/Dennis Weaver, for making me like Gunsmoke so much better, at least with the series you were in....but I always liked James Arness, Amanda Blake and of course Doc.
