Rustlers, bank robbers, and their own wild schemes: a band of Texas Rangers keeps getting in and out of trouble, under the jaundiced eye of Captain Parmalee. Written by
I have recently found episodes of "Laredo", being aired on Retro TV. I have fond memories of watching this show in in its first run days when I was sitting the neighbours two sons. I had not much of a social life back then and needed the money. I enjoyed the byplay between all the main characters. My favourite would have been the Reese Bennett character played by Neville Brand. It was a good way to spend an hour watching a light hearted western show with a bunch of Texas Rangers that surely must have driven poor Captain Parmalee to distraction. Peter Brown and William Smith were excellent in their roles. I am not too sure about Robert Wolders or Claude Akins. I thought the Wolders character was a little bit too Jim West, from, "The Wild, Wild West" and I did not care for Cotton Buckmeister replacing Neville Brand's character.
