Continuity: 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.See more »

Forgotten Feelgood Fun, 24 March 2003
Author: Andrew Hutchings from Calne, England

Quite simply, I grew up watching 'The Virginian' and I have to thank it, for being very watchable, and mainly for keeping my attention span for 90 minutes. This was unheard of for a show in those days. It led me to becoming an avid cinema addict, for which I am eternally grateful. Probably my favourite western series, although 'Alias Smith and Jones' threatened to equal it until Pete Duell committed suicide. Great memories, from the early days of colour and BBC2, I believe...
