Trivia

Jonah Collier was intended to be the 4th regular character on the show, but was deemed unnecessary when the writers realized that any of his lines could just as easily come from Brisco or Socrates. See more »

Goofs

When outlining the train robbery the outlaws say that when the engineer passes out the "dead-man's switch" will stop the train. These switches never existed for steam locomotives, only on modern diesel-electrics. If the engineer takes his foot off the switch it cuts power to the wheels and automatically sets the brakes.

Quotes

Socrates Poole: You're not quite what I expected, Mr. County.
Brisco County Jr.: Well, expectations lead to disappointment, Socrates. That's why I try not to have any.
Socrates Poole: You almost cost us both our jobs. They do not like to be called robber barons, you know.
Brisco County Jr.: Well, of course they don't. It isn't exactly a compliment.

Fantastic start
8 May 2016 | by See all my reviews

Pretty much the dictionary definition of a great pilot. There's plenty for the show to explore in later episodes, but the show's very essence is beautifully captured right here; great chemistry among the cast, turn-of-the-century trappings and an oddball of a hero: a Harvard lawyer/skilled cowboy/horse whisperer (but Bruce Campbell pulls it all off and injects the proceedings with obscene levels of charm). And that doesn't even address the bare-knuckled action. It's been a few years since I sat down with this show, but just the first 90-minute taste whets my appetite for more. And oh, the places this show will go.

Here's to more Brisco.

8/10
