The pilot episode The Adventures of Brisco County Jr.: Pilot (1993) 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 »
Brisco's Chinese friends often talk to him about "fortune cookies." These confections were called fortune tea cakes before the 1940s and were not connected with California's Chinese culture until that same time period. See more »
I loved this show! I spent more time laughing at this show than any other on tv with maybe the exception of I Love Lucy.
Bruce Campbell plays Brisco County, Jr. who is a bounty hunter trying to find his father's killer, John Bly. Julius Carry is his friend Lord Bowler. While Brisco and Bowler travel around looking for John Bly, they run into Dixie Cousins, Brisco's sometime girlfriend and saloon girl, and a host of other characters that make up this show.
My favorite episode is one I've always called The Elvis Episode because I can never remember the real name of the episode. In this episode, Brisco and Bowler are aided by Aaron, the sheriff, who happens to dress in leather, has his hair slicked back into a DA, and runs around acting like singer Elvis Presley. In one scene, with the gang in jail, while Brisco and company are given a meal of bread and water, Aaron gets a huge tray full of food. He then gives the delivery person a tip and then says to him "This don't feel like no pound and a half of bacon". When the delivery person hands over the bacon, Aaron takes his tip money back.
What I love about this show is it is just plain hilarious from the get go. Brisco's horse, Comet, thinks he's human and not a horse. Socrates Poole is a friend of Brisco and the proverbial wet blanket.
I'm just sorry this show had to be canceled so quickly because it was such a laugh.
