Good stuff
24 July 2015 | by (Beverly Hills, CA) – See all my reviews

Fun adventure-action western series.

Not historically accurate, but this black-n-white TV western is interesting enough to enjoy when television was still in its infancy; when you had to walk up to the TV and flip the switch to turn it on, then adjust the channel selector to watch a program; when you could watch the tube without being forced to view all the immoral decadence which pollutes it these days. Bill Williams is OK as the hero, Don Diamond adequate as his Mexican sidekick.

A good companion piece to just about any other adventure show from the 1950s.
