Bret and Bart Maverick (and in later seasons, their English cousin, Beau) are well dressed gamblers who migrate from town to town always looking for a good game. Poker (5 card draw) is their favorite but they've been known to play such odd card games as Three-toed Sloth on occasion. The show would occasionally feature both or all three Mavericks, but usually would rotate the central character from week to week. Written by

Jack Kelly was the only Maverick star to appear in all five seasons of the series. See more »
Filming seemed to take place in a limited number of spots, so you see some very familiar scenery repeating both within and between episodes. Be prepared for a chase scene passing the same trees and rocks several times, as well as certain scenes cropping up in stories supposedly hundreds of miles apart. Standard stuff for its day.

My Pappy always said, "A coward dies a thousand deaths, a hero dies but one." A thousand to one is pretty good odds.

I just finished watching the last part of a February 1959 episode that had Clint Eastwood as a guest and it was great like most of the shows were. This show reminds me of how good television can be (but rarely is).On a personal level, it reminds me that this show was one of the few good things about the so-called good old days.
In the 50s (when I was young), there were mainly two types of shows: quiz show and westerns. Maverick brutally satirized two of the most popular, Gunsmoke and Bonanza, in different episodes. Watching either of these alone is enough to demonstrate just how good Maverick really was.
Catch it on TVland when you get the chance. It's worth it...
