THIS was a tough decision. I think Festus won me over due to how I find myself smiling alot while sitting here watching it. I was born in1954 and recall my daddy always watching Gunsmoke. I remember my dad laughing alot while watching it. Now I sit here watching GUNSMOKE 5 days a week and 3 episodes a night not to overlook the Saturday mornings too. My dad died in 1972 & I miss him greatly, but when I watch the Gunsmoke episodes I feel him sitting with me and I can hear my dad laughing again. Thank you for bringing GUNSMOKE back...
