pocket western with a punch
13 September 2004 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This was an enjoyable piece of hokum and the half hour format worked well on this show, just at a time when westerns were starting to go out of fashion. Although in B/W, this gave the series an edge of its own giving a real depth to the wild west.In TV land there is a prejudice against B/W programmes ensuring they get very little air time, this a shame as likable series like this deserve a second chance. The leads were amiable and from what I remember, it is unique amongst western serials in that this looked like it was made by a bunch of hippies. However I would take a bet and say an episode of this is much more watchable today, than say an episode of Bonanza or Gunsmoke from the same time. Also not forgetting the catchy 'groovy' theme tune.
