1 I know I'll catch hell for this but here goes. This is a terrible, awful, sick show! I watched several episodes on MeTV just to be sure, and yep, it is very bad. Here's a typical episode: Pa McCain (Chuck Connors)has a bonding moment with his cute little boy (Johnny Crawford). A bad guy shows up and Pa shoots him 632 times at point blank range in front of his son with that Winchester repeating rifle of his and everyone smiles and says what a great man Pa is and he and the kid hug and ride off into the sunset. So, he is teaching his son to murder his way out of a hard situation. Some of the "bad guys" Pa blew away were NOT all that bad, some of them just pissed him off. The acting is terrible, especially Chuck Connors, my god he is wooden as hell. I know this was made about a hundred years ago but really, it sucks. -- Submitted By: (martymarty) on July 25, 2014, 10:12 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
2 That opening of the 11 rifle shots was quite impressive- and showed that Mr. Connors put his physical training and reflex timing from his baseball career to excellent use! That episode was a good one, soggy. I always liked the one in which Lucas was oddly aloof than to this new woman in town who played a song on a guitar- while the kid adored her and then when the kid was trapped in a well, he dreamed of his late mother in a veil playing that song and when she unveiled herself it was the EXACT same actress playing the new woman in town! I often thought it interesting how this was one of the more deep Westerns in that there was so MUCH that had happened with Lucas and his son prior to the timeframe that was too painful for them to discuss yet seemed to have had a profound effect on how they currently lived their lives. Also, while Lucas may have seemed outwardly cold to his motherless son, there was no doubt he adored the boy more than literally his own life. Yeah, I was intrigued by the contrast between this and "Bonanza" in which every single tragedy that had happened re the Cartwrights was endlessly rehashed ,wore their hearts on their sleeves and were totally mushy with each other. Truth be told, I think it was a far more realistic approach as to how so many folks in the 19th century lived their lives! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on May 8, 2011, 3:45 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
3 The opening scene was so cool; Connors handled that Winchester like it was an extension of his arm. It's not easy to rapid-fire one of those things, and tougher yet to twirl-cock it; there weren't too many actors besides Connors and John Wayne who could do it convincingly. The episode that stands out most sharply in my mind involved Lucas spending the entire half hour trying to figure out how to get out of a sleeping bag without being bitten by the rattlesnake that had crawled inside during the night. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 7, 2011, 4:14 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
4 Yes, going in, you know that ol' Lucas McCain's gonna shoot somebody before the show ends, but all in all it's still a pretty watchable show. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on January 4, 2011, 2:59 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
5 Not a show went by without old Lucasboy gunning down someone, then explaining to Mark how some folks are just meant to get shot. He then would maybe quote a verse from the Bible and hug his kid. Praise God and pass the Ammo. Good show though, stayed true to itself. Never Boned. -- Submitted By: (fletch000) on February 10, 2010, 6:47 pm - (3 votes) - Login to Vote
