Maverick: The Saga Of Waco Williams
28 June 2015 | by (Nashville, Tennessee) – See all my reviews

Waco wants his partner to give himself up. Bret wants the reward. It is cattlemen versus homesteaders! Bret and Waco are neither, but cannot stay out of trouble. Bret spends the whole time trying to keep Waco calm. He just wants to avoid fights and win money. "I'm just a teensy bit mercenary," Bret confesses. Waco does not eat dirt! I may not have even known Waco was in Texas when this show aired on February 15, 1959. I have come a long. "The Saga Of Waco Williams" was the highest rated show in the series, and Maverick's popularity was at its peak. I recall walking home from school and pretending I was Bret with my cousin as Bart. "Camptown Races" and "Oh! Susanna" are played.
