Storyline

In this Western series, Jason McCord, the only survivor of the Battle of Bitter Creek, is court-martialed and kicked out of the Army because of his alleged cowardice.

Goofs

Though the series overview states that this show was set in the 1880's, several episodes are clearly set during the Presidency of Ulysses S. Grant. And two specifically deal with events leading up to Custer's Massacre at Little Bighorn. Thereby proving that the setting for some episodes was in the 1870's. See more »

Quotes

Unknown singer of theme song: All but one man died, There at Bitter Creek. / And they say he ran away. Branded! Marked with a coward's shame. What do you do when you're branded, will you fight for your name? He was innocent. Not a charge was true. But the world would never know. Branded! Scorned as the one who ran. What do you do when you're branded, and you know you're a man? Wherever you go for the rest of your life, you must prove... You're a man.

What a bunch of crap!
27 June 2006 | by WfsunolesSee all my reviews

Branded was no masterpiece that's true, but as a little boy in the 60's, I thought it was great. It had Cowboys, Indians and adventure. You "critics" kill me! We had two or three channels back then and most of us didn't own a color set. This show served a purpose. It entertained. Superman stunk also, but we loved it! Don't tell me you think "The Andy Devine Show" was quality programing. I only saw it in re-runs, but I remember it was rather poorly made. My sister and I still watched it after school. (Ya gotta love Ignatz!) Don't over work everything just to hear yourself talk. Just sit in quiet misery while the rest of us enjoy 30 minutes of pure fantasy.
