  • Another classic western ...

    8.0
    An excellent late '60s western, great storylines and acting by the whole cast - be they regulars, guest stars or supporting players.

    The intricate relationships between each of the characters was well played out, while at the same time not detracting from the action elements of each episode. Probably ahead of it's time somewhat in that this show made good use of a strong recurring cast, i.e. the bunkhouse crew led by Sam Butler (portrayed strongly, but in understated manner by the excellent Don Collier), to support the main players.

    Not ensure of David Dortort's reasons behind the concept of the High Chaparral, but one can't help but feel that he was looking to add a bit more depth and build on what he had achieved with the already established and popular Bonanza.

    A fifth season would have been welcome viewing.
