Not your typical '50s TV western
23 February 2002 | by (California) – See all my reviews

I remember this series quite well. Even though I was only about 10 when it came out, I remember thinking that this was different from all the other westerns I used to watch. It was definitely more for adults than, say, "Wild Bill Hickok" or "Hopalong Cassidy", and even us kids could appreciate it (my friends and I watched it religiously). It was a tough, gritty show, and didn't--as many westerns often did--romanticize the role of the cavalry trooper in western history, but showed it as the dirty, difficult and often dangerous job it really was. John Pickard, the lead, had been a reliable character actor in westerns for many years--not quite up to the level of Jim Davis, for example, but close--and he fit the part of the tough cavalry sergeant like a glove. A very good show that unfortunately didn't last as long as it deserved.
