Trivia

Amanda Wickwire, daughter of the Professor, was intended to be Brisco's main love interest in the series. However, it was soon realized that Brisco had much better chemistry with Dixie Cousins, whose role in the rest of the series was then greatly expanded. The writers lost interest in Amanda, who never appeared again although her father does quite frequently. See more »

Fantastic start
8 May 2016 | by Mr-FusionSee 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
