    The Lone Ranger

    By GearyBarber, Sep 30, 2012

    Well....I dunno. I remember sitting and watching these shows. And I caught a few episodes on late night TV a few year s ago. Yes, justice and friendships were front and center. But I must say that the actors' lines were sometimes ATROCIOUS. There was one show where Tonto has to "sneak back into town" to see what's really going on with suspicious people. Jay Silverheels(Tonto) is crouched outside the door of this place listening to whatever is going on inside. And in back of him, walking away, down a sidestreet is ..? what? an extra. And of course, nobody thinks it's a bit strange for a buckskin clad Indian to be crouched outside this door. Happens everyday, Right? I now understand why Mr. Silverheels objected to the role. Stereotypical portrayals of our native Americans. OUCH!!!!moreless

    This was a classic TV Western drama. A masked man seeks justice in the old West.

    The Lone Ranger was and is one of the best westerns to ever appear on television. Even beyond that, it is one of the better shows on television period. The main premise was a former Texas Ranger, left for dead, dawns a mask to seek justice for those who seek it. The regular cast was outstanding. The guest starts were absolutely fantastic. In this time period of television many famous actors would make appearances on great television shows such as this. Then there were the up and coming actors that would go on to become huge stars and used this as a springboard of sorts. All in all a great show that can still be watched today without missing a beat. There are a lot of good messages in this show that teach good morales and values for children.moreless

    Great western

    By Bluesradio62, Oct 20, 2005

    This was truly an amazing western with great story lines and I thought it handled the Indian-Cowboy relationship in a fairly dignified way...I would definitely think this show was INFLUENTIAL>>Both the main actors were truly amazing and I still love watching them even sometimes in reruns....Maybe some one should do a Lone Ranger remake

    FBI, Law and Order

    By Toanangel, Oct 14, 2005

    This program was the TV model for all Cops and Robber, and lawman shows to come.

    Clayton Moore was there everyday to entertain our budding need for justice and the good guys do win.

    Have forgotten now, why The Lone Ranger, wore a mask and lead two lives. But, he and Tonto, played by one of the first most notable nationally recognized tv stars, Native American Jay Silverheels, taught us Law and Order. We loved to watch them track down the bad guys with their trusty horses, "Silver" and "Scout,"

    There are similarities Batman and Robbin, and the Lone Ranger and Tonto.

    Don't pass it up just because it's black and white tv. Great American west and cowby genre.
