Laredo

Show Summary

Welcome to the Laredo guide at TV.com. Laredo combined action with humor to tell the tales of three Company B Texas Rangers. Reese Bennett is older then his two partners, Chad Cooper and Joe Riley. Reese is in his forties and was previously a Union Army Officer. Chad was in the Border Patrol during the Civil War but is originally from New Orleans. He joined the Rangers to search for the gunrunners who helped ambush fellow border patrolmen. Joe was a gunfighter who was at times on the wrong side of the law and joined the rangers as protection from a sheriff or two. Chad and Joe love to tease Reese about his age. They had a Gunga Din like camaraderie. They are lead by Captain Parmalee who was stern and disciplined. He would send them on their missions and many times was not amused by the shenanigans they got into. Erik Hunter joined them in the second season. Veteran actor Claude Akins played Ranger Cotton Buckmeister in 5 different episodes but never officially became part of the cast. The pilot, "We've Lost A Train", appeared as an episode of The Virginian in April of 1965. Reese's horse Cactus was mentioned in several episodes. Chad's horse was Amigo, which was Peter Brown's own horse in real life.moreless

  • I feel so old-- when this show was current, I had a major crush on Reese Bennett! Between him and Artemus Gordon and Manolito Montoya I was hard-pressed to chose a favorite cowboy! Yay for Reese Bennett!moreless

    I can't explain even to this day why someone who was around 11-12 (me) found Reese Bennett such a facinating character. I collected the comics and I watched the show, and I wrote my own stories revolving round him. Neville Brand was just so cool, as far as I was concerned. I don't know how to explain it.



    I guess I've always been the odd one-- Reese Bennett, Illya Kuryakin, Artemus Gordon, Manolito Montoya-- I've always been a fan of the "side kick", or the anti-hero type!



    And as someone once told me, being the "character actor" is really cool-- you get to do so much, and it's more meaningful when someone really appreciates your work!moreless
  • To be a teenager in this day in age is hard enough yet alone trying to bring up our kids now.

    To be a teenager in this day in age is hard enough yet alone trying to bring up our kids now. Home and Away gives that sense of confidence to be able to cope and understand what can and could happen to any kids or adults in real life. I myself have had a few experiences like anyone else and too have this show in my life it is like a blessing.moreless
  • Adventures of three Texas Rangers told with humor in post Civil War Texas.

    An excellent western that is at it's best when Reese, Chad and Joe are featured. They had a Gunga Din like friendship. Actors are very good in this. It is a cult western, many fans around the country and several Laredo sites on the web. Give this show a chance, especially when Neville Brand is allowed to shine as Reese you'll enjoy it. Peter Brown and William Smith are also fun as Chad and Joe.moreless
