The Magnificent Seven

Show Summary

This is the story of seven men, each with his own dark secret, who band together to become known as the Magnificent Seven. They learn from each other as they protect those who can not protect themselves. These men include their leader, Chris Larabee: a man running from the pain of his past, Vin Tanner: a sharpshooter, bounty hunter and fugitive, Nathan Jackson: a former slave turned healer, JD Dunne: the kid of the gang, good with a gun but has little experience with real life, Erza Standish: a gambler and con artist, Josiah Sanchez: a former priest fighting off his personal demons and Buck Willington: a ladies man with a heart of gold. This show is based on the movie series from the 60s and 70s, which was in turn based on the 1954 Japanese film "Seven Samurai" by Akira Kurosawa. This show was cancelled by CBS after the first season and was later renewed thanks to a large internet campaign to save the show. The show was again cancelled halfway through its second season run. CBS agreed to air the remaining six episodes, but due to low ratings CBS only aired two of the reaming six episodes. About a year later, TNN aired the entire series.moreless

    When I could see this series I would watch it everytime I could caught it on television. Then, my mom had to get rid of the channel it came on. I was sad I could see it anymore but I was happy I was able to see the series when I could. To anyone who go looking for this seris good luck and can you tell me if you find anything because I been looking for the series, too. I am glad they made this series and hope I see it again. If they ever make another series like this I would most likely watch it too because it would be action-full and fun to watch on television.moreless
  • I love this show! I wish it would come back. The actors are great (and hot, too!). Best show I ever watched.

    I love this show! I wish it would come back. This, to me, was the best show ever on television. The actors are great! I don't like the way how the last show that was aired ended - it just let us hanging! Please bring it back. The actors are terrific (and great,looking, too!). The story lines were always so exciting. I looked forward to each and every one. I own all the DVDs. I cannot say enough good things about this show. It was my all-time favorite. Maybe they could make a reunion movie. The show featured the best actors ever.moreless

    The Magnificent Seven is by far one of my favourite tv shows ever! I just loved it right from the first episode.It's one of those shows where everyone in it is great & there are not many shows like that.The seven boys especially are fantastic.They are all so terrific together.I like all the Mag7 boys but my favourite by far is Ezra Standish,played by the brilliant Anthony Starke,who is by far one of my all time favourite actors! He is just the perfect character.Funny,lovely,handsome & tough,he's just great! There is not an episode I dislike in this series,all of them are really well written,very interesting & fun to watch.My favourite episodes of the series though would be Chinatown,Sins Of The Past,Achilles,The Collector & Witness.I like everything about this show very much,the people,the stories,just everything.The episodes have it all,they're funny,exciting,sad & always very entertaining.It's a show you can watch over & over.I would very highly recommend The Magnificent Seven.I just wish that it had run alot longer,it was wonderful!moreless
  • "The Magnificent Seven" was the Western that I'd been waiting for all my life!

    9.5
    I grew up watching all kinds of westerns on tv. Mostly re-runs from the old days. And I enjoyed them a lot. I was thrilled when "The Young Riders" came on and watched it faithfully every week. But "The Magnificent Seven" was the western that'd I'd been waiting for. The cast and characters were great and even the guest stars/characters you fell in love with even if they only appeared on one episode (Nettie, Chanu, Gerard Whitman, Raphael to name just a few). I don't think you'll find a better western for tv ever. I wish they'd bring it back.moreless
  • Girlfriend\'s favorite show, would *love* to see second season. Help me make a Christmas dream come true.

    8.2
    Originally, I did not have very high hopes. I was a big fan of the movie, so I was skeptical of a weekly show based on a film in which more than half of the main characters were killed. Shockingly, I found that they found pretty good ways to make these characters interesting beyond the initial \"lets protect the town from bad guys\" plot. The acting isn\'t the best, and the stories are pretty much par for shows of its ilk. However, I found myself really digging the characters. It\'s a great show.



    On the other hand, my girlfriend has fallen in love with the show. She\'s watched the first season many, many times. The one thing she wants for Christmas, more than anything else, is to see the second season. I know the DVDs don\'t exist, and the torrents don\'t seem to work...so I\'m wondering if anyone has these on tape. I\'d be happy to mail a pack of blank tapes and an SASE to get these by Christmas. If anyone could help, that would be swell.



    Thanks so much!moreless
