Not a bad theme song
17 September 2003 | by skoylesSee all my reviews

In some ways the weakest hero on the WB stable, Tom Brewster roamed the West with an "aw shucks" young Jimmy Stewart attitude "and a rifle and a volume of the law". As a youngster, he was my least favoured Western hero, perhaps because he seemed too much the boy next door, too much like a weakling. Will Hutchins did an excellent job in the role, and often the writing was a notch above the other WB Westerns, but there was nothing heroic about the nice guy Tom. There was little heroic about Bret Maverick either but that was a very different matter. And that leads to the problem: Sugarfoot was just too young. Nick Adams may have been young but he was "The Rebel". Tom Brewster: too young, too neutered. Too bad. Not a bad theme song though.
