So-so sequel to Cowboy Classic !

Bret, Beau,Bart & Ben Maverick were charming rogues who roamed the
frontier in search of riches, pretty gals , or both. The original
1950's series featured excellent writing, great casting and a tongue in
cheek approach to a fading genre. Long before Mel Gibson's remake film,
this 1970's series attempted to produce that same magic. They
completely failed to do so.
One problem with the series is the casting of Charles Frank in the
title role. He tries to carry on the Maverick torch, but lacked the
charisma and roguishness of Jim Garner, Jack Kelly or Roger Moore. The
scripts were hit and miss, with a few entertaining episodes. One writer
was David Peckinpah, nephew of the famed Director/Writer Sam Peckinpah.
This series was barely average, check out the original series instead .
