Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

Re: Spurs and the Great West

Well, I'm back. Interesting story about Korn. I'd never heard it before and I don't remember seeing anything about him at the National Monument. Pioneertown, California, is an unincorporated community of the Morongo Basin region of San Bernardino's High Desert. The historical town was originally inc...

Re: Spurs and the Great West

"Just when I thought I was out they pull me back in." No, that's not Michael Corleone speaking, it's me. Ffuries tipped me off to a comprehensive list of TV series. So far I'm only through the letter E and I've found 16 that weren't on my original list. This could be a lifetime work, but I'll sprink...

Re: Spurs and the Great West

Well folks, that ends my list of the 1950's and 60's classic westerns. If you know of any I missed, let me know. I've omitted shows like Sky King because it was set in the present, and Daniel Boone because it was set in the East.

Re: Spurs and the Great West

I've saved Gunsmoke, the king of them all, for last. Who would have thought that a western series would last for 20 years, from 1955-75? I think this review from IMDb pretty well sums it up. In black and white or in color it was consistently good, in large part, due to its talented cast. Originally ...

After he finished Wagon Train, Robert Horton went on to A Man Called Shenandoah, which ran 1965-66. A man shot and left for dead on the trail is found and revived. He has no recollection of his past and, calling himself Shenandoah, roams the West in search of his identity.

The first treks were led by gruff, but good-at-heart Major Seth Adams, backed up by his competent frontier scou...
