This takes me back to when westerns were one of the most popular tv genres, before the detective "boom" of the 70s
Although many of the storylines are stereotypical by today's standards, these are well crafted and acted, even if occasionally some little cliche makes an unintended comic moment
Lots of familiar faces in the "guest" spots, including James Garner. Trivia fans will note the appearance of the "governor" from Hawaii 5-0 as a troubled cavalry captain in one episode.
They really don't make 'em like these anymore.....but watching these really brings back all kinds of childhood memories to me.
Check out a very different role for Clint Walker, in "Send Me No Flowers" - the Rock Hudson/Doris Day classic - where Rock Hudson plays a hypochondriac convinced he's dying, who selects Clint W, an old boyfriend of his wife, Doris D, as his successor so she won't be lonely. Some hilarious sight gags in there, making the most of the towering Walker, compared to the not-usually puny Hudson!
