Agreed, a very good series.

The last two seasons are available on DVD & I understand the early black & white episodes will be coming next year.

I remember Laramie! I enjoyed that one a lot, although it didn't play where I lived. It only played in reruns up north at our cabin. I used to watch it on lazy summer afternoons. It used to run back to back with another western, same period and for the life of me I can't remember the name. It seemed to me it was about some Texas Rangers, but that wasn't the name of the show.

I remember now - the other show was Laredo. With Nevile Brand.

Laredo was a very good show. I remember seeing Laramie but only maybe 2 or 3 episodes so I don't remember as much about it, though I remember I liked it.

You know, now that I think about it, I think it was Loredo that I saw more of too. I do remember Laramie, though because it was playing in reruns about the same time as Emergency was in first run - and one of the leads played the lead doctor there. (He seemed to specialize in scowling.) I can't remember any of the episodes, though.

The main thing I remember about Loredo right now were two comic episodes. One was a cross-over ep with High Chapparal, I think, in which there was a bandit gang run by a native american woman. I liked her a lot. At the moment, all I remember is that they knew it was her because they found licorice at the scene of the crime. I like a master criminal who likes candy.

There were 3 one-word Westerns that began with the letter "L", and I always confuse them: Laramie, Lancer, and Laredo. Laredo had Neville Brand and Phillip Carey, I think. Lancer had Andrew Duggan, David Soul, and James Stacy (I think). He later lost a leg in a motorcycle accident. I don't remember too much about Laramie. I vaguely remember seeing Robert Fuller in "The Virginian" though.

Golden Oldie says:
Lancer starred Andrew Duggan, James Stacy, and a young man named Wayne Maunder. Maunder later starred in a very short-lived and ill-fated television western about George Armstrong Custer. David Soul was one of the three stars of an ABC program called, Here Come The Brides. (He also played the part of Rick in an NBC version of Casblanca which, thank God, only lasted about three or four episodes.)

I have the complete series of Laramie,which I purchased from a seller on iOffer. Most of the episodes are watchable,but not the greatest quality. I was pleased to hear from Chris Street that the black and white series will be released next year. I watched Laramie as a child when it was shown in the UK in the early 60's,but having now watched every episode I couldn't remember any of them.

There were at least two episodes with "Linda Littletrees", the native American woman. She was a Comanche.

Oh my goodness, after all these years I remember that name! Yes, that's the one. I'll have to watch out for that show now.

Don't forget Lawman.

There are a lot of Laramie episodes you can watch on you tube. I went there looking for eps of A Man Called Shenandoah (found 2) and noticed all the Laramie eps.

Does anyone know anything about Lawman starring John Russell.

Lawman Is Arguably The Best Half Hour Western TV Series Ever Made, Its Hard To Believe Warner Bros Havent Released It On DVD. I Read Somewhere John Russell Had a Grey Streak Put In His Hair To Make Him Look More Mature For The Part.

Lawman starring John Russell and Peter Brown is wonderful. They manage to tell a wonderful story in about 22 minutes. I wish I could get the series. I love it. That Marshall Troop is a man in every since of the word and Johnny is the perfect (heartthrob) sidekick. Miss Lily, simply beautiful. Its is a wonderful show.

He also lowered his voice so that he could sound older and more like a mentor to Johnny.

The Lawman has been running on Encore's western channel, the print quality is fair to midlin. A little trivia, Peggy Castle who portrayed Miss Lilly never worked much subsequent to The Lawman finishing it's run. Apparently she developed a huge alcohol problem and succumbed to cirrhosis of liver.

Have To Disagree With Your Print Quality John, i Think Its Awesome i Doubt If The Studio Could Do Better i Think They Have Been Digitally Remastered. Shame About Peggy Castle What a Stunner.

Molly says:
Oh yes the quality is excellent. I just wish that it was available for purchase.
And it is not called "The Lawman", it is called "Lawman".
