    "Magnus" is a great episode for any Gunsmoke fan. Dennis Weaver plays Chester Goode at his best. The episode makes use of most of the regular characters on the show and really illustrates the burgeoning connection between these stars and the characters that they portrayed for so long. The sub-plot line is a little contrived and campy for for the first season, that may be expected. Some parts are just laugh out loud funny. Millburn Stone is also a stand out with his one liners and sarcasm. If you're thinking of buying the first season and hesitating because it's black and white, don't. Buy it and enjoy it from the beginning.
