One of the best, if not the very best
4 July 2017 | by Thomas001See all my reviews

Fine blend of courtroom drama, bullying, western, and touch of class in 1860's. The occasional references to president Lincoln were as touching as the background music. Whit Parker ruled the entire show, with everyone else, including the Cartwright family, in just "supporting roles". I've seen this show several times, wish I could rate it 12.
