The Adventures of Brisco County, Jr.

I just picked up the series -- 60% off at Barnes & Noble last week! and have been reliving 1993-1994 as I've watched it all over again. I particularly love the cameo Carlton Cuse makes in the pilot.

Any other fans here? Any haters? Do any of you even remember this show?

93-94?? I didn't realize it was that long ago. I feel old. I remember liking it but never was able to catch very many episodes. Bruce Campbell is a god!

Very entertaining show indeed, a shame it was canceled so soon.

Really completely preposterous, like so much of Bruce Campbell's work. One of the things that makes it so great, his charisma can carry almost any idea no matter how ridiculous

Amazing show. Didn't deserve to be cancelled, and this was notice, as it was featured in Reader's Digest's "Save Our Shows" article that season.

Re: The Adventures of Brisco County, Jr.

I liked this show, I wouldn't say loved but the characters definatly carried it for me, specially Lord Bowler. I still remember the ep where we get inside his house for the first time and find it a dead posh place with it's own butler and fine china Lol

It was a good enough show, and Bruce Campbell is always fun to watch.

Bruce is the sole reason Jack is watchable.

Fun show, am I wrong in thinking that it started the Fox-Cancels-Beloved-Scifi-Show trend that continues to this day?

Re: The Adventures of Brisco County, Jr.

It's still one of my favorite shows, but I have a huge thing for fun characters. Comet the Wonder Horse was awesome, especially the episode where he got angry at Brisco for riding a motorcycle, or where he caught up with Brisco after catching a train ride on his own then tried to act coy about it. (Sure, it was mostly Bruce Campbell's acting that carried those scenes, but they were still great.)

To be fair, a large part of the reason FOX has cancelled so many SF shows is simply because it's bought so many more SF shows than any other broadcast network, and most shows of any sort get cancelled young.

Loved the show, but from what I remember, the rest of the series never really lived up to the fantastic pilot.

I loved the show as a kid when it first aired, but years later after it came out on DVD I finally got to watch the whole thing and it doesn't hold up as well. I guess a point of the show though was to be a very PG family-friendly western with a lot of jokes made to reference our times (like the "lead zeppelin"). Seeing the same jail cell set used every single time no matter what town they were in was kind of funny, though they did try to explain it away by saying it was the style of a certain architect.
