Gunsmoke had a twenty year TV run with William Conrad as the sheriff of dodge city. The early episodes are perhaps more somber, serious and gritty than the ones that came after. It seems that there was a brief trend in television in the late 50′s and early 60′s to make some television with really serious topics. It almost seems out of place and Gunsmoke remains relevant 50 years later.

The other bounty I get from Amazon is a buck if I can get you to download their free book reader. This shouldn't confront you at all. It's just a book reader. A pretty nice one actually.
