Too bad the series was cancelled
21 July 2004 | by bcolquhoSee all my reviews

The '70s was a bad decade for the television Western. Bonanza

was cancelled a year after the death of Dan Blocker, The Cowboys, based on the John Wayne movie, which was based on the book, was cancelled, and it's too bad this series, based on the John

Ford movie The Searchers, was also cancelled. Why? Low ratings, for one reason, and probably Vietnam, for another. It's the story of two brothers. Quentin Bodeen, played by Tim Matheson, the voice of Jonny Quest in the 1960s, and Morgan Two Persons Bodeen, who, with their unnamed sister, were taken from a west-bound

wagon train by Indians when they were little. Morgan, who was

raised by the Indians, meets his brother, Quentin, a cowboy, ten years later. Neither knew that the other existed. Morgan tells him that they have a sister, who was also taken from the wagon train. The two of them set out across the West to find her and bring her back to white society. Did they find her? I don't know. The show

was cancelled after three or four episodes.
