Adventures of Brisco County, Jr.: The Complete Series (DVD)


A science fiction-Western and comedy-drama with echoes of The Wild Wild West and Raiders of the Lost Ark, The Adventures of Brisco County Jr.: The Complete Series is uniquely entertaining. Anchored by the comically heroic style of likable B-movie actor Bruce Campbell, Adventures lasted one television season in 1993-94. But it left behind a full 27 episodes (including two two-part stories) full of classic TV Western production values and a running storyline that resembles The X-Files after awhile.

Campbell plays Brisco County Jr., a bounty hunter and son of a legendary U.S. marshal (R. Lee Ermey) gunned down by the villainous John Bly (Billy Drago) and his band of misfits. The younger Brisco is hired by a consortium of businessmen to protect their interests from the likes of Bly, and while he's dedicated to that cause, Brisco is also determined to avenge his father's murder. Helping him do a little of both is a fussy attorney, Socrates Poole (Christian Clemenson); a rival bounty hunter, Lord Bowler (Julius Carry); a wacky inventor, Professor Wickwire (John Astin); and a sultry saloon singer, Dixie (Kelly Rutherford). Rockets, mysterious orbs, and superhuman strength are some of the delightfully out-of-their-element phenomena that find themselves alongside more conventional cowpoke ingredients, including a horse so smart he can chew the ropes binding Brisco's hands. For the most part, the stories stand alone. But as the season progresses, a lot of things get weirder, albeit in a good way: the truth about Bly and his connection to a golden orb everyone wants, for example, are certainly unexpected. But the show is always dazzling, often satiric ("Oy!" Dixie exclaims when Brisco outlines the steps involved in stopping a runaway wagon they're trapped within), yet heartening in an old-fashioned way. Special features include Campbell's reading of a chapter about the series in his autobiography. --Tom Keogh

5.0 out of 5 stars As good if not better than I remember it!! Aug. 8 2006
While nothing will compare to the edge-of-my-seat excitment I experienced when I watched the first episode of "Brisco County" in 1993, I find the series as good, if not better, than when I first watched it. I seem to appreciate the humor and intelligence of the show more than when I first watched it. The Adventures of Brisco County Jr. is intelligent without being pedantic, lighthearted without being too cornball and adventurous enough to keep one's attention. It is a shame that the series didn't catch on with more people and get renewed beyond season 1. I am from Canada and I too found my liner notes missing. While this is disappointing I am still giving a 5 star review. Attention other fans with no liner booklet, Warner Home Video will send booklet to customers free of charge only until August 31, 2006. One can probably assume after August 31 the customer will be charged for shipping. Check out the news section for Brisco County on the TV on DVD website. Warner Home Video will only take customer info by fax or e-mail.

5.0 out of 5 stars Adventures of Brisco County Jr. May 5 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
If you are curious to purchusing this then you already know who Bruce Campbell is and what he is all about. This show is the peak of his career and is a witty humour mixed up with some country, sci fi, and mystery!! If you are open minded and enjoy shows that are not like everything else than you will not regret your purchase, I LOVE THIS SHOW.

I'm always vary of dvd set releases that are dual sided double layer (or single) because one has to be twice has careful in handling. Upon opening this set to inspect and watch, I'm pleased to find this release is single-sided. Paying the extra money for this type of release is worth it.

But I was sad to find that the booklet that is supposed to come with this set is missing. After visiting Google to find out if this problem is isolated or not, it turns out whoever is supplying Canada with this set has goofed up and the book gremlins are having a good laugh. Hopefully this missing booklet problem will get fixed. One can visit the Warner Bros (Canada?) website and inform them of this issue. Hopefully with enough calls, Warner will do a something to remedy the situation. Sadly, quality control is a problem with Warner releases (recalling the Harry Potter DVD boxset had problems too).
