It's been mentioned over and over, the Tom Brewster character called "Sugarfoot" in this series was an "unlikely hero." Sugarfoot is much like "Monk" in that, he has a handicap - he is apprehensive and often unsure of himself. He wants to solve crimes in the Old West but is often thrust into scenarios in which he feels uncomfortable. His character is much like Jimmy Stewart in "Destry Rides Again," or perhaps, Gary Cooper in "Along Came Jones." Then again, perhaps there is a hint of "Jim Rockford" in this character.
Will Hutchins was obviously chosen for his appeal to young ladies as a surfer-looking blond with a good haircut. Seems like he would have fit a little better in a "Hawaiian Eye" style show. He has a bit of an "Owen Wilson" appeal, although, definitely campier.
All of this considered, I enjoyed "Sugarfoot" as a tongue-in-cheek Western series.
