      The Adventures of Brisco County Jr.: Stagecoach would have been better with a little different mix of stagecoach passengers. Basically, Brisco is taking a prisoner to Mexico on a stagecoach on which there is a killer. The viewers learn this first, thanks to a scene with Socrates and Bowler, and Brisco doesn’t figure it out until a

      passenger is killed.

      The funeral sequence, by the way, includes a eulogy of, yes, “Let it Be.” Sometimes, this show can go overboard. I think as good as it was, it jumped the shark.

      The passenger being transported is a female named Emma Steed (Lisa Collins). She’s bound to be named after Emma Peel of The Avengers ...


      • because she fights like a man, which was the joy of watching Diana Rigg’s character in the British series, not to mention that Emma worked with Mr. Steed. This show loves the homage.

        As for the passengers, while colorful, they just lacked the right spark to get my interest. There was more obnoxiousness than there was curiosity.

        That said, Debra Jo Rupp and Timothy Leary were decent.

        In addition, most of the Emma story was pretty predictable, not to mention the ending of the show. There was no mystery to me what the twists were going to be.

        I did enjoy John Pyper-Ferguson this go around as Peter Hutter. He was a mix of funny and ridiculous.
