Although he isn't as popular as he once was, The Lone Ranger remains an icon of American pop culture. Unfortunately, he is an icon that many younger people are only vaguely aware. I was lucky growing up because my parents exposed my siblings and I to all of the tv Westerns and pop culture of their youth, including THE LONE RANGER.
If you are curious about The Lone Ranger, THE LONE RANGER: 28 THRILLING EPISODES DVD is an ok place to start. The set contains four discs that include 28 episodes from Seasons 1 & 2 of THE LONE RANGER tv show. If you've never seen the tv show, this set gives you an idea about what it was like.
Unfortunately, there are a few flaws with this set. For example, although the film quality is excellent, the editing for many episodes is not done in a very good manner (many sudden scene changes, jump cuts, faster ratios for some scenes, etc.). Also, the opening credits are not the original opening credits. I was disappointed by this because, for the most part, I like watching older television shows with their original openings and closings. Finally, as a set of discs that can introduce people to The Lone Ranger, it's disappointing that this set doesn't contain the episode that actually introduces the origins of the character.
THE LONG RANGER: 28 THRILLING EPISODES is a decent DVD collection of some of the first and second season episodes of THE LONG RANGER tv show. For 28 episodes of classic television, it's a good deal. However, if you're more of a completist, like myself then you will probably be better off with either THE LONE RANGER – 75TH ANNIVERSARY or THE LONE RANGER: COLLECTORS EDITION.
