Trivia

Christian Clemenson could never get used to riding on horses. But since Socrates was supposed to be a studious sort, he thought it was entirely in character and helped his performance. See more »

Goofs

Brisco's Chinese friends often talk to him about "fortune cookies." These confections were called fortune tea cakes before the 1940s and were not connected with California's Chinese culture until that same time period. See more »

The Quick and the Evil Dead (just kidding)
27 August 2003 | by See all my reviews

I love this show ! I used to watch it every Friday night--my sister and I started watching it because it starred "that guy from EVIL DEAD", but it wasn't till "Brisco" that I considered myself a Bruce Campbell fan. The show also introduced me to another favorite actor, Billy Drago, who made John Bly the weirdest Old West villain in TV history. The camaraderie between Brisco, Bowler, and Socrates was great, and I loved the anachronisms and bad puns ("You got the sheriff!" "Yeah, but I didn't get the deputy."). Some great guest stars from earlier Old West shows, and John Astin as the recurring Prof. Wickwire. Sci-fi, Old West, slapstick--this show had something for everyone. Find it and check it out!
