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.

4.0 out of 5 stars The one disappointment, Oct. 6 2004
I would have given the "American Dreams" DVD set 5/5 stars, but I only give it 4/5 because I was disappointed that there was not a commentary track for each and every episode. Otherwise an excellent DVD set of an excellent first season of a show that only seems to get better with each new season.
