Cade's County was a pretty neat show and should have lasted 5 years on the TV of the early 70's, but, that was back in the big 3 network days when there was no cable for another few years yet, and a show had to have a huge audience and not huge competition (like the Ed Sullivan Show). The theme song and opening credits were really sweet for a TV show - Henry Mancini's best song of all time is definitely the "Theme from Cade's County" and watching Glen Ford jump through the air in the Jeep was pretty slick. The show was filmed in the super high-quality style of Universal Studios or a 20th Century Fox movie - better quality than nearly every TV show on the air today - in my opinion, and was quite impressive. Scripts were pretty good too. Can I suggest we have TV Land or the like, have a marathon running these 'lost' TV shows of the early to mid 70's like Cade's County? Great show, and like I said, the song "Theme from Cade's County" is by far the best toe-tappin' song ever from Henry Mancini. Just like "WKRP in Cincinnati", CBS gave a great show a crummy timeslot and killed it way ahead of its time.
