Trivia

The show was short lived, mainly due to its competition. It was shown on Saturday nights at 7:30 p.m. Eastern Time, directly opposite The Jackie Gleason Show, then the fifth most popular show on television. It was cancelled at mid season, with its last broadcast on New Year's Eve 1966. For some reason, the family name of Starett was spelled with one R, instead of with two R's, as it was in the movie and source novel. See more »

Shane 1966 TV Series.
30 December 2004 | by See all my reviews

I saw the full series of Shane in the 60s on TV and I thought it was excellent, nothing fancy or Ultra action series, but a really good realistic western series with an excellent cast.David Carradine was his usual strong, moody self.(as Kung Fu)The late Jill Ireland was good as his romantic interest. I suppose it would seem a bit sedate by today's standards, but to me it was superb, with some very good supporting actors, Some who appeared on an almost weekly basis and some who did not. All were good.I thought Ryker was also a good character, A real good villain of the piece with his brother and other gun hands he seemed to hire who always came up against out hero Shane.I would love to see the whole series again today. I'm sure It'd be just as enjoyable.
