In this series, the main character, played by Michael Biehn is named 'Chris Larabee' where, in the original 1960 movie, Yul Brenner played 'Chris Larabee Adams'. Eric Close played Steve McQueen's original role of 'Vin Tanner'. Most of the other characters are based upon roles from the movies "Return of the Seven" 1966, and "Guns of the Magnificent Seven" 1969. See more »
Yes, it is a western and sometimes violent by some standards, but there is so much more. How many shows are there that can be set over a hundred years ago and still address problems faced today?
The cast includes seven very different actors (much like the characters they portray) who come together in perfect harmony. The stories are well-written and directed. There is the perfect blend of action, suspense, and a little humor for good measure.
I jumped for joy when I found out that "The Magnificent Seven", formerly of CBS, was picked up by TNN. It now airs Wednesdays at 10pm eastern. It is the best show to come around in a long time and deserves the chance. Even if you don't like westerns, there's something here for you.
