One of My TV Favorites has arrived on DVD: The Adventures of Brisco County, Jr.

If you've never seen it, you've really missed out. It was sort of a "Wild, Wild, West" for the 1990s, and it never took itself too seriously (a flaw all too common these days).

It's way too expensive, but maybe it will be available for rental before too long. For an overview of the series, you can see the Wikipedia link, and a recap of each episode and DVD extras can be found here.

By the way, if you're a fan, please leave a comment and let me know.

Update: I meant to mention it before, if you recognize the theme song, that's because NBC co-opted it for their Olympic coverage.

I've never seen the show, but I see you can watch some episodes here.

Well watch one and tell me what you think.

It has the brilliant Bruce Campbell (genius physical comedian, camp king by way of the Evil Dead series) in it, so it was more or less destined to be brilliant (and therefore short-lived).

Hey, I watched one. It wasn't bad. It really was like Wild, Wild West. It reminds me of why I don't have TV - not just because of the bad stuff, but because of the time-sucking good stuff. Still, I might have to watch it again...

I loved the show--I had the pilot on VHS, but lent it to someone and never got it back...
