TV WESTERNS—BRONCO

TV WESTERNS
BRONCO
The terrific Television's New Frontier: The 1960s blog has numerous detailed and informative posts on many of our favorite westerns. Below is the opening paragraph of their post on Bronco. For the full post click on the link at the end...
 
As Bronco moved through the second half of Season 3 and the beginning of Season 4 in 1961, nothing really changed from the previous year--former Confederate soldier Bronco Layne continued to drift about the west, former Confederate soldier Bronco Layne continued to drift about the west, often called by an old friend to help deal with a difficult situation, assigned by a territorial government to escort a detainee to prison, or summoned to help bring in a fugitive who happens to be an old army commander of his. Sometimes we find him already working as a buffalo hunter, as the sheriff of Silver City, or as a deputy. And then occasionally he just wanders into trouble, as in Stage to the Sky when he rides up just in time to stop a lynching but then becomes the target of various attempted assaults for defending the intended lynching victim. One thing remains constant, however—Bronco will never have the same job from week to week or settle down anywhere for any length of time, though he contemplates marriage and a ranching life in One Came Back only to have his bride-to-be take a bullet to save him from her criminal former boyfriend, a fate as predictable as all the other plots in the typical Warner Brothers recycling factory.
