The man on patrol in the Everglades.
22 March 2000 | by yenloSee all my reviews

One wouldn't think there would be very much crime in the everglades but there was. Lincoln Vail was a game warden or a sheriff or police officer (I can't recall which) assigned to Florida's everglades and patrolled the swampy wilderness in his high powered airboat chasing bad guys and rescuing folks. This early 60's show didn't last long but as a kid I thought that airboat of Vails was the greatest thing around. I'd love to be able to see the episodes of this action series again. I still remember the shows theme song that proclaimed "Lincoln Vail of the Everglades, The man on patrol in the Everglades"
