Barbary Coast

Show Summary

Barbary Coast was a short-lived 13-episode series featured the adventures of 19th century government agent Jeff Cable, and his pal, conman and gambler Cash Conover. Operating out of Conover's casino in San Francisco, the two take down criminals and enemy agents with style and flair. The show was reminscient of The Wild Wild West and tried to emulate the James West/Artemis Gordon partnership, with limited success. It also tried to emulate the elaborate cons and machinations of Mission: Impossible (going so far as to use a number of writers from that show), but again with less then satisfactory results. Overall the show was entertaining but just never quite sparked.

  • Shatner and McClure not to love?

    Trampas and Captain Kirk in a short lived show. It was on opposite McCallum's Invisible Man that was released on blu-ray last year. Both were killed by CBS's Monday night lineup. Any chance it will ever be released for dvd/blu-ray?

    I remember this show from when I was a kid...thought it ended way too soon...but then I was Shatners first foray into a TV series after Star Trek. What I want to know is when they are going to release it for sale...and why they haven't already...
  • I must say I am a little irked that everything I read about this episode said the same thing;

    I must say I am a little irked that everything I read about this episode said the same thing; major secrets revealed, lots of love - making --- and there was none.... what happened? Regardless, it's an episode you can't miss - it's hilarious and the Naley scenes are adorable.

  • William Shatner was great, bring it back.

    This was a pretty good television series. As is normal with good television shows, this one did not last long enough. This is a show that I would suggest watching if you get the chance. Check the bargain bins at Wal-Mart, the online movies sites (Amazon.com and such) and all of the cable channels that run old shows. Nick at Nite and TV Land are great for theses kind of shows. They will even do a week long spot for shows that only had 6 or so episodes. Then you have your super stations. They run a bunch of old shows too. All in all a pretty good show that did not get a good enough chance. Sometimes it is a simple as the show it is up against. Look at Law & Order. It is one of the longest running shows on TV. They moved it to go up against Lost. After about 2 weeks of getting pounded in the ratings it was moved back to it's original time slot. Shows like this should be given more of an opportunity.

    To be honest, I would have preferred to spend my time elsewhere than finish watching this. However, I kept thinking that there is great potential behind this and I was half right. There was potential to say the least but this potential was poorly exploited leaving a show that is half decent. Nonetheless, you really have to see Barbary Coast to get what I'm talking about.
