Despite the title, the majority of the "brides" never got married. See more »
The pilot establishes Seattle has a totem pole in a prominent location which is depicted throughout the series. Actually the first pole in Seattle wasn't erected until 1899 whereas the series is set shortly after the Civil War. See more »
Charming simplistic 60's western series whose purpose is to just entertain. There is usually some small lesson included but it's told in an easy going manner. Many well known actors who were just starting out pop up throughout the episodes. The main cast are all fine, some like David Soul who went on to other things, others like Bobby Sherman, who is very appealing, had a few big years and then left the business but they all work well together. Best of all is the great Joan Blondell full of sass as Lottie the saloon keeper and surrogate mother to the whole town. A nice reminder of when a series didn't have to have deep meaning and grit or be about people who had to be idiotic and mocked by the one of the leads. The excellent theme and credits are an added plus, really suited to the program from a time when shows tried to have a memorable opening so you knew right from the beginning you were watching something distinctive from everything else on TV.
