Thoughts from Tamara

I am just your basic Gunsmoke fan. I am not a know-it-all. In fact, there is plenty about Gunsmoke that I don't know. I haven't seen every episode. I only have a few on tape. I have seen many episodes, though.

When I was a kid (7th grade or so) the color Gunsmokes were being rerun at 6 pm on a local station. This was my first real introduction to the series. I know my parents had watched it, but I always had to go to bed. So all of these color, hour long episodes were really great to watch.

Later, when I was in high school, another station started running the "Marshal Dillon" episodes. I loved them! This was when I started trying to gather information about the series and its stars. We got our first VCR when I was in the 10th grade, and the very first thing I recorded was one of those old Marshal Dillon episodes.

Then I went to college, graduate school, got married, and had a baby. My life was just a little too busy to become involved with Gunsmoke again. Now my baby is 2 years old and I have time to watch TV again. Gunsmoke is being rerun (the color episodes) on a local station, and I'm watching. [A quick note here - this was all correct when I wrote it in January 1997. Now I have 2 kids and a lot less time again. Oh, well.]

I thought I'd check the web to bring myself up to date on all the latest Gunsmoke info. And there was nothing! Nothing at all for the longest running TV western! How can this be???

So that's why I'm doing this page. Not because I know everything, but because there should be something out here devoted to Gunsmoke.

So I hope you enjoy the page!


You can help! If you have Gunsmoke information, pictures, trivia, gossip, memories, comments, whatever - send them to me. I'll include anything pertinent on this page.
