Australia first got television in 1957 so a lot of these series were a few years old by the time we saw them. The Texan was compulsory viewing in our house. I remember it being in prime time viewing [7.30pm] and for an 8 or 9 year old it was really exciting viewing.The Pinto horse & the way he dismounted was relived many times with friends in the back yard. Everyone wanted to play the part of the good guy. He never got the girl in the end , but at nine years old who cares. Very innocent & simple times. I remember when Rory Calhoun visited Australia in the early sixties, he was exactly the same as we thought he would be. Is the series available on DVD ?? Other favourites were The Lawman , Rifleman , Laramie , Wanted Dead Or Alive . You could never get enough
