A Man Called Shenandoah-er-Lazarus
16 April 2020 | by mttvmemoriesSee all my reviews

There is no real "original" TV show plots anymore. Uniqueness in television fare went out with the 20th Century. L👀k hard enough at any small screen script show and you will come up with similarities from another in the distant past. In this case actor Robert Horton from "Wagon Train" portrayed "A Man Called Shenandoah" in 1965. Just like "Mr. Lazarus", a traumatic experience caused the lead hero his memory he searches for(around the same post Civili War era)in his weekly TV time slot. This doesn't undermine the attention grabbing storyline of how Robert Urich's character goes about solving his mental block mind you. Just you remember the plot was done before-just not in the same manner.
