Goofs

Miss Goodin offers each Maverick brother one thousand dollars per month for life. Shortly after, Bret does some maths, asking the executor what 50 plus 50 times 24,000 is ($2.4M). The correct sum would actually be ((50+50)*12,000) or (50*24,000) either of which comes to $1.2M. If each brother gets $1,000 per month, that is $12,000 per year or 50 x 12,000 over the next 50 years, or $600,000. Between them they would receive $1.2M. The executor should spot the mistake, as should the brothers - or indeed the writers. See more »

Maverick: The Maverick Line
22 May 2015 | by jcolyer1229See all my reviews

The brothers inherit a stagecoach line from their Uncle Micah. This is the only episode in which Micah is mentioned. The stagecoach line is broke, but the fact that the railroad is coming through provides hope. Bret and Bart may have been the first anti-heroes. They were primarily out for number one and would avoid trouble whenever possible. That James Garner was wounded in Korea may have contributed to his portrayal of Bret. He was wounded in the buttocks by friendly fire, a misfortune he shared with Forrest Gump. Still, it cannot be assumed that either Garner or Bret were cowards. Both Mavericks liked women. This was James Garner's final episode.
