I liked this series a lot
27 August 2001 | by See all my reviews

I was still a teenager when this series aired and I liked it quite a lot; I wondered what happened to the series. Tate had one arm encased in what looked like black leather and wore a simple (leather?) sling to support the arm; however he was good with a gun and despite having only one good arm he seemed to be able to take care of himself. He came across as a sort of depressed/cynical loner who wandered the west rather aimlessly and kept a Post Office box in Kansas City. He would sometimes give this P.O. box address to friends he made in his travels so that they could get ahold of him should they need his services. This actually influenced me to get a Post Office box for myself when I got older.

One memorable line: "I hate the flat-lands." Interesting comment, considering that as I recall his character spent so much time in relatively flat looking country.
