Was the last production to film on the Laramie Street backlot set at Warner Brothers Studios. It was actually being torn down to accommodate a post-production sound facility during filming of the show, which was used to rerecord the sound for episodes whose audio tracks were disrupted by the construction of said facility.

Lord Bowler often talks of having been in the Cavalry (an army that rode on horses), but he usually mispronounces it "Calvary" (the hill of Crucifixions). See more »
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.
