Goofs

John Grainger is introduced in season five as Elizabeth Grainger's grandfather. When John dies and Clay Grainger inherits Shiloh Ranch, he is identified as John Grainger's brother and, presumably, Elizabeth's granduncle. But by the time of a season seven episode, "Girl in the Shadows", the story has changed and Clay is the elder brother of Elizabeth's father which would make him John Grainger's son, not brother.

Great Western Series
12 February 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I first saw the Virginian in England in the 1960s. It became my favorite Western series. The characters were honest, likable and honorable. The acting was good and the stories were compelling and well written. The show also seemed more subtle and complex than the average western series. The stories usually had a moral message and the good guys always came out on top.James Drury, Doug McClure and Lee J.Cobb were all excellent.

The Virginian came from a time when American TV shows were very popular in the UK.During the 1960s and 1970s we tended to see a lot of American shows in prime-time in Britain, but that changed in the 1980s. This show is being shown on Encore and I'm enjoying watching it in color for the first time.
