Trivia

Sheriff Russell is an homage to Bing Russell, who played Deputy Clem Foster on Bonanza (1959) (and was the father of Kurt Russell). See more »

Goofs

While the exact year is not mentioned, at one point the president is referred to as Teddy Roosevelt, which would place the year from 1901 to 1909. Dennis Farina's character has a Colt semi-automatic pistol known as a Model 1903. The Model 1903 looks very much like the more popular Model 1911, which began production two years after Roosevelt left office. See more »

Okay TV Movie
8 January 2010 | by FightingWesternerSee all my reviews

The Ponderosa is intruded upon by renegade Pinkertons, led by murderous detective Dennis Farina. They're chasing reformed outlaw Frank James (Leonard Nimoy!), who finds protection among the next generation of the Cartwright clan and his old Civil War pals Ben Johnson and Jack Elam.

Johnson, Elam, Farina, Nimoy, and Richard Roundtree are all fun to watch, though some of the younger actors, including the offspring of a few of Bonanza's original stars, are a bit wooden and the script a few bad lines of dialog.

However, everything's so laid back and the old-timers so good that it's virtually impossible for me to dislike. The story premise is fairly solid too.

Some might call it heresy to try and further the adventures of a TV series without the benefit of any of the original stars. I'm glad they went ahead and at least tried. It took guts.
