At times the series was just an ordinary western/ ]But at other times / it became a very interesting psychological drama / could two people from very different circumstances /one confederate veteran who literally lost everything as well as the war and an ex-slave who was also a black veteran learn to deal with each other/ in a world that resented and hated both rebels and blacks/ they were indeed outcasts !/ the series also dealt with violence against women/ Indians and questioned ethics and morality of post civil war America as well as in our own time . Don Murra y and Otis Young were excellent in their roles . Are VHS tapes available ? The premise would make a great movie/series is now available on DVD!/ / fans of this series were not wrong it was excellent
