Storyline

Ernest Pratt, a dime-store novelist in the old west, lives with his scientist friend Professor Janos Bartok in the small town of Sheridan, Colorado. The people of Sheridan mistakenly believe that Pratt--a drinker, gambler, and womanizer--is the audacious and pure hero of his novels, Nicodemus Legend. Bartok and his associate, Ramos, convince Pratt to assume the Legend persona while supplying him with Legend-like futuristic gadgets that they invent. Together, Bartok and the reluctant Pratt (as Legend), adventure throughout the west solving mysteries, capturing wrong-doers, and even making scientific discoveries.

One of the best SCI-FI westerns
9 August 2006 | by (NC) – See all my reviews

I loved the show when it was on. I never missed an episode. Unfortunately, they canceled it. That seems to happen a lot to TV shows that are original and brilliant like this one.

I am something of an amateur history buff and the idea of a show set in the late 1800's Colorado that looked forward to the things we take for granted today was incredible. How many young men were attracted to travel west back then because of dime-store novels like those produced by Nicodemus Legend? Of course, the truth never quite lived up to the fiction.

Now that "The Adventures of Brisco County, Jr" is out on DVD, will Paramount see the light and release this series on DVD?
