Storyline

On a dark, stormy night, on a hill outside of Houston back in the old west, a sheriff and his deputies corner a local gang of thugs. Suddenly, a time warp occurs and everyone is transported over 100 years into the future, to present day Houston. After some initial difficulties adjusting, they do what any group of cowboys would do when hurled over 100 years into a strange future: They start a detective agency.

Outlaws had a great soundtrack score
15 April 2006 | by arthaupt1See all my reviews

The thing I really enjoyed about this 1986 series was the remarkable soundtrack score, by Joseph Conlan. It was a prominent part of the show, so surely the producers knew they had something good.

I can still hum the theme, the climactic action cue, and a wistful dulcimer (?) finale to one episode.

There's a difference between serviceable scores that pretend to be solid music (The West Wing's theme, IMO), and scores that really bring it. Bruce Broughton's Jag theme is great--and so is Outlaws's.

And I think the Conlan score is worthy of being compared with the Western-movie big boys: composers Bernstein, Goldsmith, Newman et al.

Too bad this enjoyable TV series got canceled, but somehow I still hope the show's music will find an audience.
