I don't ever recall this western series being shown on UK television, and that's a pity as it is very fine series indeed. All the stories are based on fact, and they are interesting and not simply run-of-the-mill western fare. It's obvious that a great deal of effort was put into each episode, and they certainly don't have a cheapish look about them. In fact, everything about the series is top notch, and it is more of an adult western series than many others that were around at the time. An overriding asset, to the series, is Tristram Coffin in the lead role of Capt Tom Rynning, of the Arizona Rangers. This stalwart of many a cliffhanger serial, is first class in the role and portrays the right character mix to be totally believable. All-in-all this is an exciting and absorbing western series which any fans of the genre will thoroughly enjoy.
