Quotes

[first lines]
Narrator: Twenty-six men chosen for their courage and ability formed the Arizona Rangers. Fame and public acclaim was not their objective. This is perhaps why the story of these 26 men has not been told until now. This was the Arizona Territory at the turn of the century - a sparsely settled, raw frontier. Terrified by bands of desperados who operated in open defiance of local peace officers.

Good Start
23 December 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The first episode of this short-lived story focused on Clint Travis and how he became an Arizona ranger. He came into the ranger's office looking for a job, and Captain Riding was happy to show him out. As the men travel to Wilcox to try and settle it, they get to know each other.

Wilcox is a wide open town with lots of outlaws. The two rangers travel there to try and give them some help. Cling quickly learns, however, that knowing how to shoot a gun and using it are two different things.

From where I'm sitting this show has a lot of possibilities. Though clint is still a bit wet behind the ears, Captain riding seems strong.

Two people dead.
