The Macahans is the best
3 August 2005 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

This is probably the best western series I have ever seen. I loved to watch the Macahan family get settled in the west. You were looking forward to every weeks episode. Zeb Macahan was my favorite. The way he took care of the family together with Luke was outstanding. You followed the family from the south, just in the beginning of the civil war and continued together with them to they found peace in the west. Unfortunately the family lost their father in the beginning, but uncle Zeb took over to secure the family against criminals and outlaws. Luke Macahan was my favorite a long time after the series stopped. Fortunately it has been shown in Denmark and Sweden several times. I still want to see the series once more.
