      In 1993, the western returned to television on the Fox Network. It received a lot of buzz. I remember this pretty well. Series star Bruce Campbell was new to most people and was given a lot of press. Just like the old days of Gene Autry and Champion, and Roy Rogers and Trigger, this show put forth the team of Brisco

      County Jr. and Comet, who was his wonder horse.

      The reason I was looking forward to The Adventures of Brisco County Jr. was because the pilot included a cast of western heroes from the days of old. These tycoons — bank owners, cattle barons, and the like — hire Brisco as a federal marshal to track down John Bly and his gang.

      The music is sweeping and really makes you a part of the action, and there is a lot of action. It also ends on a very emotional and inspirational note that really makes you want to watch the next episode. It’s a job well done.
