Goofs

The show presents an idealized "should-have-been" version of the 1890s. One of the most obvious differences from the reality is that Lord Bowler, a proudly independent and defiant black man, never experiences any racism from whites who would have called him "uppity." See more »

User Reviews

One of the best TV shows that ever aired!
28 August 2002 | by See all my reviews

THE ADVENTURES OF BRISCO COUNTY JR. was a really bizarre show, but I guess that's why I loved it so much. Bruce Campbell played the title character who was a Harvard-educated attorney turned bounty hunter that fought bad guys in the year 1893. Most of the episodes were focused on Brisco chasing after John Bly [Billy Drago], the criminal responsible for the murder of Brisco's father during a train robbery, though it was the episodes with more tongue-in-cheek humor that I liked the best. Sadly, Fox canceled this fantastic show after only one year on the air and in my opinion, it was the biggest mistake the Fox network has yet to make. The show will most likely never become available on video or DVD, which is a shame since this is possibly the most underrated show in the history of television.
