We need Westerns on TV Today. They showed young children a little about the Old West, and that the Bad Man always came out on the short end of the stick.
James Garner and James Arness were 2 of the Greatest TV Stars and John Wayne was truly the Best in Movies.
Back then, the story lines had Real Plots and very Very Interesting to watch. I still watch the Reruns of these shows, including Bat Masterson.
I GREATLY MISS the Westerns, and I think that Gunsmoke and Maverick were truly the Best on Television. That is just as True Today as it was in the 1950's and Early 1960's.
