DVR-TiVo-Or whatever recording device strikes your fancy-alert!
Once again, TDOY turns your attention to the Encore Westerns channel (if you subscribe…if not, scroll down to the last paragraph) for a classic episode from the dean of TV westerns, Gunsmoke. EW has “Us Haggens” scheduled at 7:00am tomorrow and features a historic first meeting between two of the show’s main characters—or as we like to refer to it around Rancho Yesteryear, “When Festus Met Dillon.”
“Haggens” is one of the episodes featured on the DVD box set Gunsmoke: The Directors Collection (while “Wolfer” is available on Gunsmoke: 50th Anniversary Collection) so if you don’t subscribe to Encore Westerns it might be available for rental at Netflix, ClassicFlix.com and other fine online places. (And if you miss recording “Haggens” tomorrow the channel will repeat it on November 11 at 7:06pm EST.)
