    I Miss Maverick.

    On the way home from work, i was thinking about how long it's been since ive seen Bret, Bart, or even Beau.  Just hate that Encore changed it so that it don't come on in the evenings anymore.  Guess ima have to buy the entire collection of the show.

    Tombstone Is My Favorite Western

    and all those Clint Eastwood movies and of course the legend John Wayne. Tombstone is my all time favorite western. I like the whole story, it's based off real people and actual events. I'm not saying it's the only western based off actual events but it ranks high up there in...

    Three Westerns You Won't See At The Top Of Film Buffs's Lists But I Love 'em.

    Two of them are set in the modern day, ie the time they were made. One's a two reel slapstick short, one's a long forgotten Civil War piece, one's very violent but suffused with an underlying core of tenderness. Two are set largely in Mexico. They each have their own unique...

    And Maverick Is The Best

    Maverick was witty and fun and didn't dumb things down.  Many of the plots were fairly intricate and involved but a casual viewer could still follow them.  Even  though each show involved one or more of the boys needing money and then devising some crazy scheme...
