After 30 years Yul still rules

And they’re still using him to sell this stuff.

This looks Western …

Not Western …

But there’s some good actors in here …

I like Ed, but it looks like he’s supposed to play Yul’s former role …

    Another one to wait and see how it pans out (along with The Magnificent Seven) – you never know. Honestly, I’m in two minds here but then I have a love/hate relationship with the original where I never really know if I like or dislike it. And this one looks very sci-fi (which I struggle with) and it is a series (which I also don’t really manage)…only time will tell

      An unusual project. A TV series with BIG name stars in it. I’m not against SciFi at all, but I always thought this could have been better. And I was initially shocked to see Yul in here. Figured this might be below his stature. Then he made a couple more !!?? Yeah it’s definitely SciFi – not Western. But it looks like it could be good.

    I’ve been wondering when this television series was coming. I love the classic and hope it’s not an embarrassment.

      I just heard about it – and the Star Power in there surprised me. Had to check it twice. So this is not a small production. Looks like they’re having some problems, but I anticipate it will be good. ??

        I have my doubts, JC, but will hang in there and see.

    If it’s Netflix, it might be good. We can hope.

      Hi Marilyn!
      I wonder if I’ll have access? We’re trying out a thing called Shomi on Shaw Cable. I KNOW you’ve experienced ‘Reverse Technology’ where things actually get more complicated and harder to use – rather than simpler or easier. That’s what we are experiencing. so far. (Maybe I really am out of the ‘Tech Loop’??) We will persist – for the moment.
      A new Western mini-series that might interest you and Garry, started last night on AMC called American West – produced by Robert Redford/Sundance. Might be good.
