I'm surprised that nobody put out a comment for this
I remember this show vividity as a child during the 1960's and part of the 1970's. Its amazing that this show that ran for an impressive nine seasons on NBC(from 1962-1971),was the first show ever to expand to a full ninety minutes and the only western that was second to "Bonanza"(which was on the same network)to be presented in "living color" during that time. Based on the novel by Owen Winsler,the show centers around the goings on of the Shiloh ranch and it characters(played by James Drudy and Doug McClure-who stay on during the show's entire run) who were always in a bland situation or two. Its rarely seen nowadays,but the last time this show was seen anywhere was on the Family Channel during the 1980's and most recently the movie version of the same name was made(which didn't go by the 1960's TV show)on TNT. Excellent Western!!!
