Lists like these below interest me. I suppose because I enjoy both writing and reading western romance. Some of these programs I remember. I mean, who could ever forget Clint Eastwood as a young man?
Let's see if you remember some of these westerns from the 60s, 70s and 80s.
If so, do you agree these were 'some' of the best running TV westerns? At least in someone else's opinion. Leave a comment below and tell us which shows you remember.
