Typical western with a twist. The two stars appeared as Texas Rangers but in a different scenario each program. One week, they might be Rangers in the 1840s and the next week they would be current day Rangers, i.e., it was a history of the Texas Rangers. Written by

Are you sure the theme was "Eyes" rather than "Yellow Rose" of Texas?
My father retired from the Texas Rangers in 1951, when I was about four years old. He and I watched this program every Saturday. Its tech adviser was Captain Clint Peoples, for whom my dad worked in his last years with the Rangers. I KNEW that Capt. Peoples played up his own role in all the episodes (???), but I also recognized my father's contributions (as he revealed them). In sum, when I look back, I think that there was a lot more realism than my fellow eight year old viewers knew. I am incredibly gratified, though, that kids from New Hampshire felt exactly as I did about the show. Small world. Thanks to you all "Yankees" for sharing your memories. If you're curious, my father's favorite TV crime show in the years before he died was Hawaii Five-O.
