    The Guns of Will Sonnett

    The Guns of Will Sonnett

    Follow
    ABC (ended 1969)
    We search for a man named Jim Sonnett and the legends folks tell may be true. Most call him gunman and killer; he's my son, who I hardly knew. I raised Jim's boy from the cradle; till the day he said to me, "I have to go find my father". And I reckon that's how it should be. So we ride, Jim's boy and me. While Jim Sonnett was a well known gunslinger, the elder Sonnett was no slouch. Will Sonnett had been a scout and rifleman in the Army and in the pilot episode explained to someone who was spoiling for a fight that he was an even faster draw than his famous son. That fact was proven several times during the series as Will pulled his grandson out of numerous scrapes, most of them started because of the family name. After two months of watching Will & Jeff search for James, the viewers finally got to meet up with the gunslinger in episode 6, even though it would take Will & Jeff another year and a half to finally catch up to the prodigal Sonnett. Although Jason Evers is listed below as a series regular, he was never included in the opening titles but always got the primary Guest Star credit in each episode he appeared in. The Guns of Will Sonnett was notable for being one of super producer Aaron Spelling's first television series as an independent producer, and series star Walter Brennan's last as lead. Best known for The Real McCoys, Brennan went on to play a regular supporting part in the second season of the John Forsythe sitcom, To Rome, with Love [1969-1971]. The series also stood out among the other westerns at the time because of the way Will Sonnett summed up each episode at the end of the tag. It was possibly the only action-adventure series to end each episode with a trail prayer. However, despite a lot of promotion by ABC, the series never really caught on with the viewers and only lasted two seasons. Original Time Slot: Fridays @9:30PM Most used phrase (by Will Sonnett): No brag, just fact.moreless

    Jonny Quest chronicles the globe-trotting adventures of 10-year-old Jonny Quest and his father the scientific genius Dr. Benton Quest. Along for the derring-do are the multi-faceted Roger "Race" Bannon, the mystical Hadji, and Jonny's dog, the irrepressible Bandit. The Quest team uses science, space-age gadgetry, and old-fashioned fisticuffs to solve mysteries and try to thwart the evil doings of Dr. Zin and other diabolical madmen. When Jonny Quest ended its original run in 1965, it was far from finished. A new version of the show went into syndication in 1986 for a short 13 episode stay as The New Adventures of Jonny Quest (1986). Another version, The Real Adventures of Jonny Quest, emerged on the Cartoon Network with 2 full seasons of new and exciting adventures with an adolescent Jonny, Hadji, and Race's young daughter Jessie in 1996. Jonny Quest has successfully run three series since the 1960's and is still a well-known and loved classic today. The original series (with period commercials for the show!) is currently available on DVD through Warner Bros.moreless

    The Rat Patrol was an ABC television series that aired for two seasons from 1966 to 1968. The show was loosely inspired by the Long Range Desert Group's actions against Axis forces in the North African Campaign of World War II, and followed the adventures of four Allied soldiers: Sergeant Sam Troy (Christopher George), Sergeant Jack Moffit (Gary Raymond), Private Mark T. Hitchcock (Lawrence Casey) and Private Tully Pettigrew (Justin Tarr). The show's first season was very successful, finishing as the 23rd highest rated TV show in 1966-67, and spawning numerous tie-ins such as boardgames, toys, models, and a feature-length film. The series is also notable for giving Eric Braeden (credited as Hans Gudegast) his first recurring TV role as The Rat Patrol's nemesis, Captain Hans Dietrich of the Afrika Korps.moreless

    The Unusuals is described as a crime procedural dramedy set in modern-day New York City. Sometimes life takes an unexpected turn, as in the morning Casey Shraeger, a vice detective, is assigned to work undercover as a hooker by the Lincoln Tunnel and later finds herself a part of the homicide squad. As Casey gets to know her new co-workers, she discovers that each one has their own quirks, not to mention, their own secrets. Det. Walsh is a loyal and brilliant officer whose partner was just gunned down. Det. Delahoy has a brain tumor along with a death wish while his partner Det. Banks, who wears a bullet-proof vest to sleep, fears he won't make it past 42 years old. Det. Cole is very religious but seems to have a shady past, and his partner Det. Beaumont is a tough female cop amongst the male-dominated precinct. Det. Alvarez talks about himself in the third person and is often the object of his colleagues' pranks. Casey herself has her own secrets as she was born into one of the richest families in New York City and doesn't want anyone to know about it. The Unusuals, described by some as "a modern-day M*A*S*H", was created by Noah Hawley and is produced by Denis Leary, Peter Tolan, and Jim Serpico, executive producer of FX's Rescue Me. ABC has picked up The Unusuals for mid-season 2008/2009 with an initial season order of 10 episodes. Due to not-so-great ratings, ABC opted not to renew the series for a second season.moreless

    The Life and Legend of Wyatt Earp

    Follow
    ABC (ended 1961)
    The first of its kind...the original adult western. The Life and Legend of Wyatt Earp was the first in a wave of new TV westerns aimed at adults (previous entries, such as The Cisco Kid and The Lone Ranger, were considered fodder for the after-school crowd). The show was then followed, in the same season, by Gunsmoke on CBS, Frontier on NBC and Wyatt's fellow ABC show Cheyenne. It was these four shows alone that started an incredible and unmatched phenomena that would see up to 28 new westerns premiering during the 1958 primetime TV season. But only a handful of them were able to dominate a few of the top 10 spots in the network ratings and Wyatt Earp was one of them. Wyatt Earp was inspired by the legendary events of the real life Frontier Marshal who lived from 1848 to 1929. The show followed Earp from his days as a Marshal in Ellsworth and then later Dodge City (this caused some confusion amongst viewers since Matt Dillion was the Marshal of Dodge City in Gunsmoke) and finally to the infamous Tombstone, Arizona. Along the way Wyatt would encounter such figures as John Wesley Hardin, the Thompson Brothers, Doc Holliday and Earp's brothers Virgil and Morgan. Bat Masterson would also appear before getting his own series (where he would be played a different actor). The show even featured the famous Buntline Special, a foot-long-barreled Colt .45 single-action revolver which many believe to be the kind of gun that the real Wyatt carried and was given to by Ned Buntline. The series would conclude in 1961, after six full seasons, with an epic five episode story that told of how Wyatt took on Old Man Clanton and the Ten Percent Gang in a final showdown at the O.K. Coral with the help of his brothers and Doc Holliday. The Life and Legend of Wyatt Earp is not as well known today as most other classic westerns such as Gunsmoke and Bonanza simply because it didn't last as long and was not shot in color. But ask any baby boomer who grew up in front of the television during the '50s and they'll easily recall Wyatt Earp with fond memories. By today's standards, the series was rare in that Frederick Hazlitt Brennan, an author and playwright, didn't just write the first episode (based on the 1931 biography by Stuart N. Lake), he wrote the majority of the 226 episodes throughout the series' entire six season run. This Desilu production originally aired from 1955 to 1961 on ABC, Tuesdays at 8:30pm. Witness for yourself how well this superb series, starring Hugh O'Brian, still holds up by watching newly restored episodes on TV Land every weekend at 3pm.

And none can deny it The legend of Wyatt Forever will live on the trail. Wyatt Earp, Wyatt Earp, Brave courageous and bold. Long live his fame and long life his glory and long may his story be told.
