And That's the Way It Was on the TV Dial
28 January 2007 | by (Claremont,USA) – See all my reviews

Thanks, Doug Brode, for the detailed update. I have an indelible impression from that long ago time-- Frontier was an unusual and outstanding series with offbeat stories and a memorably laconic tag-line. I tried to catch up with it every week until it suddenly disappeared. Unfortunately, Frontier came at a time when a hundred other much more predictable Westerns crowded the dial. Possibly, it got lost in the shuffle. Then too, there was no name "star" to carry the episodes from week to week. Instead, the series provided an opportunity for up-and-comers to show their stuff, as a reading of the cast list demonstrates. I wish I had something more detailed than a steadfast impression, but it's remained with me all these years, and I'm glad for the chance to share the experience-- something I never expected. Perhaps the Western Channel can revive Frontier, as they've done with that other short-lived, high-quality series, The Westerner. One can always hope.
