    This is one of those TV shows, like Slattery's People and East Side/ West Side and My World and Welcome to It, that Iam determined to see before I die. The consensus of Western Tv and Film cholars who have seen it is this show was a masterpiece. It had the misfortune to go up against The Flinstones in its time-slot, and only lasted 13 episodes. However, Brian Keith was apparently magnificent as Blassingame. The show is legendary enough among "buffs" to have earned Keith a cameo playing Blassingame in The Gambler: Luck of the draw, in which almost every other old time TV Western star also appeared. It is absurd that this show is rated "mediocre" by TV .com users.moreless
  • Brilliant classic Western, Keith was outstanding as the lead Dave Blassingame, and Peckinpah brought an edge to this show. A must watch, if you're not a fan of westerns this show will make you one! Superb!moreless

    After watching all 13 episodes and the original pilot on Zane Grey Theatre it's hard for me to understand why this show only lasted such a short time. The acting was brilliant, (loved the dog Brown) the stories were great and just the whole feel of the desolation and anguish one might have felt back then comes across brilliantly in this series. Peckinpah was ahead of his time. Brilliant series.
