No comparison to the great film .........
2 June 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The Rounders was a fantastic western comedy of 1965 that paired Glenn Ford with Henry Fonda . That film is a classic of the period and remains a favorite of western fans. This TV series was a poor attempt to reignite the chemistry of the film. The experiment failed.

Chill Wills reprized his role as the shady rancher, Jim Ed Love .... and he was hilarious in the role. Unfortunately, Ford and Fonda are sorely missed in this series. The writing was not up to the standard of the film ---- and the end result was this mediocre, short-lived western series.

Stick with the big-screen version, this series failed to deliver.
