Timeless and Wonderful,
This review is from: Alias Smith and Jones: Series 1 [DVD] (DVD)
Was it really 1971? I can still remember the opening credits from way back then when the series aired on BBC 2.
This is the classic comedy western series. It's timeless because it's set in the West. Some of the music is a bit 70's, but for the most part it could have been filmed any time.
The chemistry between Pete Duel and Ben Murphy is excellent.
If you haven't watched it before, the premise is a couple of likeable rogue robbers have the opportunity to go straight and earn amnesty. The only problem is they have to stay straight for a year and only they, the governor and an old friend, now turned sheriff, can know about it.
The Series revolves around their escapades and efforts to achieve this while still being on the most wanted list.
If this genre is for you, it pushes all the buttons. It also comes highly recommended in the family entertainment category. Buy it or rent it, but watch it!
