Last of the Half Hour Shows
24 June 2020 | by csmith-99615See all my reviews

As a big Gunsmoke fan, I especially liked the half hour episodes. No wasted dialog or scenes. Matt had everything wrapped up in 25 minutes or so. As a response to another reviewer had to say about Chester having to scrubbing the office floors. I agree to some extent but.... Once again a prisoner escapes while under Chester's watch, so I'm saying l hope he wasn't paid too much!!
