I'd never seen this series until just recently, catching it accidentally on a satellite channel. Not even sure if it was originally shown in the UK, I can't find anyone who remembers it. A lot of the old half hour westerns could be somewhat corny and maybe weak, but this one has quite absorbing episodes and manages to pack a fair bit of interest into each one with very likable characters.
It's a pity it didn't last longer than its 38 episodes, and maybe gone on to longer ones, but perhaps that's what makes it zippy. If you're a fan of 1950's & 60's western series then definitely give this one a try. I haven't managed to catch every episode but the ones I've seen I've enjoyed. What it lacks in sophistication (there's only so much you can do in half an hour) it makes up for in action.
