Outlaws (1986)

Show Summary

Sheriff John Grail was mad - we hit a bank in his town. Harland Pike, me - Wolfson Lucas, William Pike, and Isaiah "Ice" McAdams, known collectively as the Pike Gang. Grail had once been partners in crime with the four of us, but now all bets were off. The showdown was interrupted however by the Allmighty, who sent us all sailing into the 20th century, and what a century it was! But we weren't what you would call ordinary men, so we dug in, tried to adapt, and started a detection agency to put beans on the table and in the process ran head on into Deputy Maggie Randall. Things may be different this century, but there's plenty of work to be done because one thing is bound to be true - the bad hombres will always outnumber the good. In 1886, the four members of the Pike gang and their ex-partner, Sheriff John Grail, meet in a dead-end gully over an Indian graveyard and a burst of lightning catapults them all 100 years into Houston in the future. Forced to band together, the five start up the Double-Eagle Detective Agency and, with the help of Lt. Belford, fight crime with a unique Old West sensibility.moreless

  • This is what happens when a western and science fiction combines. A group of cowboys are propelled into the future by a blue light or was it lightning? There...they fight the bad guys like it was done in the days of the old west.moreless

    I really do not remember this show vividly. The program aired when I was a teenager, and I remember that I really liked it. I was and still am a cowgirl at heart, and I am also a science fiction nut. This show appealed to me on both levels. It was sort of a cop show, but not really. The cowboys were charming. I think I remember that some of the episodes were a little predictable, but that is okay, most cop type shows are. Without the internet age, I had no idea that the show was canceled and waited for the new season to start. I finally realized that it just wasn't coming back. I really wish there was someway to see this show again.moreless
  • Loved it as a teen

    I liked this show. It had real potential. It just needed better scripts. The idea was great. Outlaws who get the chance to reform and make amends while at the same time, they were fish out of water in the 20th century. Too bad it became formulaic like Knight Rider Or A-Team. Could have been a good series.

  • Loved it!!!!

    I was only 14 when this show debuted, but I loved it and was not happy when it was canceled. I think about the show from time to time. My favorite part of the show was when they (outlaws) lined and said something like "Let's do, nice and easy..." Some more goes with that, but I cannot remember what, anyway I too would loved to purchase the videos of the show if possible.

  • A wonderful show. Not only funny but also a serious side on some of life's problems and hose to handle them. Sorry to have seen it go. Can I purchase videos of the segments?? Regards, Jerrymoreless

    A wonderful show. Not only funny but also a serious side on some of life's problems and hose to handle them.

    Sorry to have seen it go. Rod Taylor and Richard Roundtree on the same set must have been a sight to behold. Two accomplished actors coming to gether for a great modern western.

    Can I purchase videos of the segments??
