Over 600 episodes?! Can you see that sold in a "buy the series" DVD box? They've have to sell it in 5 year increments, seasons 1-5, 6-10, 11-15, 16-20. Thanks for the memories James.

The Daily News story had this minor myth:
by drpruner / June 5, 2011 9:40 AM PDT

"Despite the fact the show famously opened with Marshal Dillon outdrawing a bad guy on a sun-baked Main Street,"

Dillon was outdrawn (and no wonder*) but shot straighter.

"Arvo Ojala (February 21, 1920 in Seattle, Washington - July 1, 2005 in Gresham, Oregon) was a Hollywood technical advisor on the subject of quick-draw with a revolver.[1] He also worked as an actor; his most famous role was that of the unnamed man shot by Marshal Dillon in the opening sequences of the long-running television series Gunsmoke. As a joke on the producers, Jim Arness and Arvo actually did the opener once with Dillon falling to the ground."

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
