Just a quick note –
I think it’s a pretty standard disclaimer that I have no involvement with the show or it’s cast, other than as a fan.
For me, this is a labor of love – I’m not a writer, but I will do my best to articulate my thoughts as I take my time and go through each episode of the show. Think of this as like a commentary on a DVD. I’m not going to go through the episodes verbally, but in blog format – critiquing and adding my own commentary on what I liked about a particular scene or moment. I will also be including various clips when I think additional flavor is needed to enhance my commentary, or when I need help articulating something that just doesn’t translate perfectly to the written word; for example, a particular facial expression.
Lancer aired at the very tail end of the 60’s. It was a remarkable time, although the decades long run of westerns, in both movies and TV was about to come to an end. For me, I consider Lancer to be the last vestige of TV westerns. Sure there were a couple of others that came after, but Lancer was still in that 1960’s western mold.
If you are a Lancer fan, think of this as a place to add your own commentary and thoughts. If you have not yet experienced Lancer, think of this as your research.
I’m really looking forward to re-watching all of the episodes that I remember so fondly.
Lots of Lancer Love,
