    This only goes to confirm that those in Hollywood have run out of fresh ideas.

    But where will they find a guy with a jaw like Chuck Connors?

    while Chuck Connors is impossible to replace, Neal McDonough would be an interesting choice for Lucas mcCain

    You mean Charlie's Angels didn't do it for you?

    Westerns and Private Eyes are due for a huge revival. James Garner's Maverick & Rockford Files would be two I would like to see again.

    He reminds more of the Sugarfoot character played by Will Hutchins - the smart cowboy.

    These shows are so old, they don't even need to hire new writers. They can use the same scripts.

    The ones on the cable channels would have to replace the "dag nabbits" with more colorful language.

    And what about the role of Marshall Micha Torrance played by Paul Fix? Another big pair of boots to fill. Kevin Conway comes to mind.

    Pau! Pau!!

    It always cracked me up how, on Branded, there would be so many times that Connors would amble into a town, minding his own business, but someone would spot him and say, "Look! That's the Coward of Bitter Creek!", and all the bullies would riducule and pick on him because, well, he's a coward. Someone said so. The idea that a bunch of punks would take it upon themselves to roust a guy who's six feet, six inches tall, weighs 230 pounds and is as fit as the former profesional athlete that he, just because he has been "branded" a coward, always struck me as silly.

    Dolph Lundgren has the looks not sure about the voice though.

    Yeah, other than a few cable networks, there haven't really been much in the Western genre in a long time.

    I'd also love to see someone reboot Police Woman. Angie Dickenson was hot! :grin:

    Just don't have NBC do it and name it Prime Suspect.

    That shot of Angie's bare legs coming down the stairs in the opening credits made a significant impression on me when I was just a young lad. I think that was my favorite part of the show. ;)

    They'll still have to shorten them up to fit in all of the commercials.
