Pretty good series ,worth a look ........
23 June 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Tales of Well Fargo was a well-written, satisfying western drama that followed the exploits of Jim Hardie, Wells Fargo Agent. In early episodes, he served as narrator/agent & later became a rancher and part-time Wells Fargo agent.

Dale Robertson was very good in this series, with a toughness tempered with a sense of humor. The format allowed for a number of interesting stories and characters. I haven't seen this one on DVD yet, but look forward to owning the shows when available.

William Demarest (of My Three Sons) was especially good as a supporting co-star. Check this one out, its good, clean fun !
