Trivia

The pilot episode featured a reporter named Jonah Collier who was played by Dan Gerrity. Collier was originally supposed to be a recurring character who would provide plot explanation at the beginning of episodes while covering news stories. The character was removed because the producers decided that the presence of Socrates Poole and his role as a provider of plot exposition made Jonah Collier unnecessary. See more »

A Reinvented Western
26 March 1999 | by (Iowa City, IA) – See all my reviews

Adventures took the TV Western in a direction that hadn't been seen since Maverick and The Wild Wild West: light-hearted comedy. As an additional twist, they tossed in the TV-parodying elements of Maverick (we see 'Dr. Quintano, Medicine Woman' and Terry Bradshaw leading a team of football players/bounty hunters), and the futuristic (by 1890's standards) gizmos of the West (motorcycles, dirigibles). Throw in the story arc of John Bly, master villain of the future, and you've got a story that is a very weird blend of so many elements its hard to describe. Bruce Campbell show she has the stuff to be a series regular, but another strength of Adventures... is the continuity and the supporting cast - many of which are given a chance to show up often and get some character development. Catch it on TNT.
