The series was unique for its time in that the two lead characters actually "worked" on the ranch. They chopped wood, cooked, washed dishes, washed clothes, fed chickens, repaired roofs and did all the chores necessary to running a ranch. This aspect added an authenticity to the lead roles that you didn't see in other series. See more »
I can remember quite clearly the opening of "Laramie" where the characters Slim and Jesse are seem galloping across the plains of Wyoming. Even all these years later the scene, backed by the inspiring music, makes me feel happy. Slim and Jesse operate a stagecoach depot on the route between Denver and Laramie. I did like the characters of Jonesy and Andy as well. Jonesy added some comic relief to the brutality of the old west. I think Slim and Jesse had perfect chemistry as partners. I did enjoy the episodes that featured them both rather than the ones where they rode alone as solos. I try to watch "Laramie" every day when I get home from work.
