Susan Saint James,
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 loved watching this show as a teenager and I've watched a few episodes in the past few years that would come on late at night. I really loved the character of Johnny Lancer/Madrid, played by James Stacy. He was very cute! The show had good story lines and each episode was stand alone. All the characters in the show were very believable and seemed to work together real good. Lancer was one of the better westerns on at that time. I wish we had better writers now that could come up with as good a show! If you haven't seen this show and get a chance to watch it you won't be disappointed if you're a fan of westerns.
