Trivia

Parodied in an episode of The Simpsons, called McTrigger. See more »

Goofs

McCloud's accent is totally wrong for someone supposedly from Taos New Mexico. Taos is located in northern New Mexico, and Anglos there do not speak in that sort of accent, but rather more or less a general American accent. See more »

Quotes

Sam McCloud: If I was you, I'd find a trail out o' here before ya get me riled up.

Alternate Versions

Only the first season featured hour long episodes (47 minutes plus commercials). The pilot and subsequent seasons were 90 minutes or longer. For repeats, the six episodes of season one were edited together in pairs of two to form three 90 minutes installments. These were given the new titles 'Man from Taos'; 'Manhattan Manhunt'; and 'Murder Arena'. Some additional voice-overs by the main cast was added to imply connections between the story lines where originally there had been none. See more »

When Gunsmoke Meets Kojak
1 September 2003 | by SargebriSee all my reviews

This has to be one of the funnest detective shows in the history of television. Dennis Weaver went from being the country bumpkin deputy Chester on "Gunsmoke" to what became his defining role as Marshall Sam McCloud. I especially loved the fact that it never took itself seriously as most shows of this type did. I'm just sorry that it never was spun off onto its own separate series as this show was definitely a classic.
