  • Okay premiere episode.

    War of the Silver Kings was the premiere episode of the TV Western classic series Maverick which would make a star out of James Garner. But be forewarned when watching this one. It's not yet the series which is fondly remembered by many. The humor and parody for which Maverick became famous was not yet present in the show. The series starts out here as another straight western telling the adventures of gambler Bret Maverick. Bret is not yet the devilish coward he will become later in the series. He's braver here than he would be in future episodes. As with most series, even the great ones, we sometimes have to wait a while before they hit their stride.
