Storyline

A late entry in the television Western boom of the late 1950s. Shotgun Slade was unlike other show heroes. He wasn't a Marshal, Sheriff, or gunfighter for hire, but Slade was a private detective, hired to track down criminals, return stolen money, or solve mysteries surrounding the death of townspeople. The show had more in common with shows like Peter Gunn (1958) and 77 Sunset Strip (1958), than Gunsmoke (1955) and Bonanza (1959). This show depended on strong characters and storylines than action. Written by Austin Taylor

Peter Gunn in the Old West
11 May 2006 | by Gatorman9See all my reviews

I just saw this on DVD for the first time last night and enjoyed because it was so much like Peter Gunn. What the other reviewers have said regarding the musical score and general tone of the show (especially in the dialog and the attitude portrayed by the star) is true. While it is by no means realistic, it was stylish enough in it's Kennedy-era way to be more entertaining to watch than the vast majority of what you can find on commercial TV today, so don't "dis" it. I wish that more of this kind of thing was available. Newton Minow must be rolling over in his grave at just HOW vast a wasteland modern television has become today.
