Vashta Nerada BS: Favourite TV cowboy (72* d) RE: BS: Favourite TV cowboy 13 Dec 17


Digging out a few under-represented in this list:

Annie Oakley totally fictional, but a woman.

The High Chaparral had a more representative vaquero cast for the region where it was set.

I'm seeing some argument for Little House on the Prairie as a western - but it was actually upper midwest and they were homesteading farmers. Animal husbandry went with that territory. Cow folks? Someone over at IMDb curated a list of "the greatest TV westerns of all-time" and it's fairly near the top. (I will note that if that list maker can get away with putting Firefly on the list, then the original Star Trek also belongs there - it was often was plotted as if they wore black hats or white hats.)

Oh, and one I actually watched fairly often and could even stand Ronald Reagan in: Death Valley Days. They were supposedly actual true stories - massaged by Hollywood.
