Lancer is the story of a rancher who struggles to hang onto his vast holdings in California's San Joaquin Valley with the help of his two sons and his ward. Scott, whose mother died in childbirth, is Murdoch Lancer's older son. He was raised by his maternal grandfather in Boston. Younger son Johnny was taken from his father by his Mexican mother when he was only around two. He grew up around the Mexican border and went by the name Johnny Madrid under which he earned a reputation as a fast gun. Deservedly so apparently as men from his past occasionally show up to cause problems for Johnny and his new found family. Teresa O'Brien, daughter of Murdoch's murdered ranch foreman is Murdoch's ward and a surrogate sister to the two boys. Written by
I grew up watching this great western as well. It was the best of all the westerns on TV when compared to Bonanza, High Chapparral, Laredo, Big Valley, etc. And I used to watch them all! I just loved the two brothers and their love/hate relationship. The wholesome family environment in the midst of the turbulence of that time era. It is a shame that we cannot have this type of wholesome programming back on the television. Nothing we have today can compare to the shows that were released in the late 1960's. I have looked for it to appear on channels such as TV Land and have not been able to locate it. I plan on looking to see where I can purchase these if they are on DVD as well. Thanks for the information! This is a great site.
