I couldnt watch more than 30 mins of BROKEN TRAIL. Horrible dialog, and utterly predictable. It just seemed to me like a bad pilot for a TV western. Truly crapstacular!

The Pony Express wasn't around that long so I guess they would cram it all in within that limited window.

Robert Duvall can play the grizzled cowboy character for the rest of his career, and I will be one happy audience member!!!

Mad Men and Breaking Bad are both top drawer, so hopefully the pattern continues.

I remember his Outer Limits days, but ain't the grizzled, seen-it-all, end of an era cowboy becoming a cliche for him?
