Campbell plays Brisco County Jr., a bounty hunter and son of a legendary U.S. marshal (R. Lee Ermey) gunned down by the villainous John Bly (Billy Drago) and his band of misfits. The younger Brisco is hired by a consortium of businessmen to protect their interests from the likes of Bly, and while he's dedicated to that cause, Brisco is also determined to avenge his father's murder. Helping him do a little of both is a fussy attorney, Socrates Poole (Christian Clemenson); a rival bounty hunter, Lord Bowler (Julius Carry); a wacky inventor, Professor Wickwire (John Astin); and a sultry saloon singer, Dixie (Kelly Rutherford). Rockets, mysterious orbs, and superhuman strength are some of the delightfully out-of-their-element phenomena that find themselves alongside more conventional cowpoke ingredients, including a horse so smart he can chew the ropes binding Brisco's hands. For the most part, the stories stand alone. But as the season progresses, a lot of things get weirder, albeit in a good way: the truth about Bly and his connection to a golden orb everyone wants, for example, are certainly unexpected. But the show is always dazzling, often satiric ("Oy!" Dixie exclaims when Brisco outlines the steps involved in stopping a runaway wagon they're trapped within), yet heartening in an old-fashioned way. Special features include Campbell's reading of a chapter about the series in his autobiography. --Tom Keogh

Just as campy and ridiculous as I remember it being from the few episodes I evidently only saw parts of during the original airing. Read morePublished 14 days ago by Robin Boyd

|Can someone who OWNS this tell me about closed captioning availability?||
I purchased the 8 disc set from a local store. It does not have English subtitles, only French and Spanish.

|Holiday Rip-Off Price Increase!||
There was a single day before the New Year when AmCom had this set for $19.99. I did *not* have the money, and am just kicking myself. Since the holidays, the price has been rising and rising.

|The non-cliche cliche!||
Briscoe and Wickwire discuss the last three rockets that blew up.
Wickwire: "FOUR's a charm!"
Dixie asks Briscoe if he likes the bed. "It was imported from France."
Briscoe: "Louie the 14th?"
Dixie: "Noooo, I think Louie was the 9th or 10th, but then... Read More
