    Do you know the common denominators between The Big Valley and The Wild Wild West?
    They use the same sets and the same stunt team.
    It's funny when you watch Jim and Artie stepping into the house, the entrance and the living-room of the Barkley's.

    I would love to see those as well but I couldn't even guess at this point as to where the negatives and 35mm prints reside for either show. CBS maybe?

    Sheriff of Cochise and US Marshall are no more of westerns than Highway Patrol is. If you count them, then you should put Cade's County on your list.

    What are you? The HTF police? They can be classified as modern westerns and/or crime series.

    Most likely a person who has a nerd-like penchant for classifying and/or categorizing things.

    This also happens in other niches unrelated to tv shows. For example, such as classifying and categorizing heavy metal bands.

    So is Man and the City a western because it takes place in New Mexico? Petrocelli?

    Per that link, the brain trust at CTVA also lists the Suzanne Somers "classic" She's the Sheriff in the western category, so I can't take them too seriously as a category authority. Did they think because the sitcom was set in Nevada that it must be part of the western genre? In that case Robert Urich's Vega$ can also be considered a western.

    Dave "I like some Westerns but only a few, so I must only be a handful of grains of salt of the earth" L. ;)

    [Note: Just for the record, I'm no expert in She's the Sheriff trivia, so nobody judge me. I found the Nevada tidbit when I looked up info on the series after I saw it listed in the link. Having seen maybe 2 episodes of it back in the 80s and remembering only that I felt bad for Pat Carroll being stuck on it, I had to see what would make it a western. Reading that it was supposedly taking place in Nevada is the only possibility I could think of, and that's a rather flimsy reason to classify it with actual westerns. Best of the West was a true western/sitcom hybrid; She's the Sheriff was...just more unpleasant than a close encounter with a cactus.]

    Well Dave, I’d take almost anyone’s opinion on westerns over Neil’s. LOL

    In all seriousness, the reality is Sheriff of Cochise can be listed as a western because it’s true to that genre. I’m surprised anyone would actually make an issue of that classification. Then again, I consider the source.

    Gary “don’t remember Somers or Urich regularly wearing cowboy hats, so they are out” O. :D

    Since I would be very surprised to see this series get a release, it would be a nice bonus if the 13 episodes were included as part of the eventual Season 16 Gunsmoke release. (That's the season with the 2-part storyline introducing Sally.) No doubt that Gunsmoke season will be spilt into 2 volumes, so they could put 6 of the episodes in 1 of the volumes and 7 episodes in the other volume.

    It likely won't happen, but it would be a good way to finally be able to see the spin-off series.

    Two insults in one posting. Not nice. I'm not one to go complaining to the moderators but seriously, what does consider the source mean? Can you disagree with me, as always, without resorting to digs?

    I think the only reason Cochise gets lumped in as a western is because of the name and people associate it with the character from Broken Arrow. Otherwise, its essentially the same show as Highway Patrol and State Trooper, just set in a different part of the country. Is US Marshall also considered a western as well?
