An Internet fan campaign was partly responsible for CBS' decision to renew this series. A team of fans organized and coordinated their efforts through a Web site, recruiting the internet fandom in e-mailing CBS executives and affiliates and raising $5,000 of their own money for ads in Variety and USA Today thanking the producers, the cast, and the extended crew members. Patti Kleckner, a Chicago-based fan, who was part of the team who organized the campaign, offered her services as a contact on behalf of the effort. She was offered a free trip to California by executive producer John Watson to make her television debut with a walk-on part in the "New Law" episode which started the second season. 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.
