    Yeah, I watched the remake.

    You guys had me thinking I'd missed something stupid.

    Since nobody has mentioned them yet...

    "The Wild Wild West" - The Original TV show, not the only loosely related movie. Four seasons and two straight-to-TV movies of classic, "Weird West," awesomeness (Think James Bond meets John Wayne). I don't think it played a part, but I still can't help but feel that this show helped to pave the way for a certain Table-Top RPG Setting I'm a fan of.
    "The Adventures of Brisco County Jr" - Another 'Weird West' show, this one from the 90's starring Bruce Campbell as the titular character. Only lasted one season, and a lot of the references are dated, but it's still got a lot of charm as a sci-fi western. Billy Drago plays a delightfully menacing villain.

    Both had elements of steam punk in them.

    We were only doing movies.


    Wild Wild West is my single most favorite show EVER. Brisco has a special place in my heart as well.

    The Wild Wild West movie wasn't up to expectations - but I think it would have been fine if they had not tried to recreate the original cast of characters. Jim and Artie are elsewhere saving the world when a Loveless wannabe turns up - can the second string, new recruits get the job done?! I think Smith did a pretty danged good job as West - but that script wasn't workable as their origin story (that was done in series and the movie departed WAY too far from it).

    Okay, other TV westerns:

    High Chaparral (my favorite pure Western).

    The Rifleman (my other favorite - it's like choosing between kids!)

    Bonanza

    Gunsmoke

    Wagon Train

    Rawhide

    They all were special to me growing up...

    A few more...


    Wanted Dead or Alive

    Branded

    Maverick

    Have Gun Will Travel

    Cisco Kid



    And Wild, Wild West was one of my all-time favorites as well. A major influence (much like It Takes a Thief), for good and bad.

    I have a soft spot for The Plainsman - it only had one season but it had Michael Ansara!

    You should check out Broken Arrow if you can find it
