When it comes to classic TV, you never know what show is going to hop out of the vault and make it onto DVD. Or in some cases, whether a classic series is being left to waste away in the vault. (I’m looking at you Disney and those classic shows from World of Color/Disney). Some series you think should be released never are, and some you didn't think would ever see the light of day again, end up in the marketplace.
The only thing I can tell you is that at the time, I thought it was a really good show, although I have no memory of individual episodes. I think its short run had more to do with some pretty heavy competition, and the fact that it was a more quiet story driven Western then the usual shoot ‘em up people were used to. Unfortunately it also came at a time when the popularity of Westerns was just beginning to fade.
The series premiered in 1966, and holds a lofty 7.1 rating on the IMDB. So obviously somebody besides me remembers it.
As for Shane, the price is hovering between $14 and $16. That averages out to about $1.40 an episode.
These TV shows are heavy with guest appearances by well known actors and actresses, some who would go on to win many movie and TV awards. For instance, guests appearing in Shane include Robert Duvall, Wayne Rogers, James Whitmore, Diane Ladd, Charles Grodin, J.D. Cannon, J. Pat O’Malley, Daniel J. Travanti, Constance Ford, Joseph Campanella and many more.
