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 »

You ran out on me once before. You wouldn't be thinking about doing that again, would you?
I swear upon the grave of my sainted mother.
You told me your mother was alive.
It's a figure of speech.

I have been hooked on this show since the pilot first aired. I was a fan of the original movie and love Westerns, so I had to check it out. I also was a fan of Michael Biehn, especially from science fiction, which didn't hurt.
What a treat! The actors are both handsome and skilled, the sets and plot lines are authentic, and there is a nice balance of drama and humor. There is plenty of room for plot development and great interplay between a solid ensemble cast. I especially appreciate the inclusion of blacks, Latinos, and realistic portrayals of Native Americans -- the West was widely populated with all types of people, and that comes through clearly here. The guest stars have also been fantastic, and some may become regular guests.
I've been taping and re-watching each episode several times -- it's that good. If you haven't watched it yet, check it out -- you won't be sorry!
