The truth behind some Western legends.
28 July 2005 | by (Chicago, Illinois) – See all my reviews

I am a late comer to this show, but I found it very informative. Hopefully, the History Channel will rerun the episodes narrated by Keith Carradine, I'm currently seeing the ones with David. I find it kind of ironic that David Carradine is on a show discussing guns and other weapons of the Old West considering that on "Kung Fu" he basically played a cowboy who didn't use any sort of firearms. This series lays bare the truth about some of the "heroes" and "villains" of that time period. Like the lawman who allowed a prisoner to escape only to shoot him in the back just so that the sheriff could attend a dance! Or just how really overwhelmed the people at the Alamo were (1300 Mexicans vs. 200 Texans). Or just how bright (or maybe not) some desperadoes were when confronting the law and a Winchester rifle at 90 yards. Like I said, I hope that History Channel reruns the series in its entirety. Nothing like finding out how "wild" the Wild, Wild West really was.
