One of the classic TV westerns of the late '50s and early '60s. Eric Fleming (as Gil Favor) and Clint Eastwood (as Rowdy Yates), along with all the other regulars, were excellent in their roles. Two of the regulars, Steve Raines (as Jim Quince) and Rocky Shahan (as Joe Scarlett), actually looked more like genuine cowboys than actors!
In truth eight seasons was probably a little long for this series (especially at 30 episodes a season), with the final two arguably the weakest. The axing of several cast members (including Eric Fleming) for the final season no doubt contributed to a decline in ratings. Despite this, John Ireland and Raymond St. Jacques were both worthy additions to the cast and it was interesting to see the character of Rowdy Yates in his new role as trail boss.
Overall, a quality show and definitely one worth watching.
