Synopsis


Season One of the TV western The Magnificent Seven: The Series begins with a 2-hour opener, set in the early 1870s, which details how seven "fast guns" were united under the guidance of reformed gunslinger Chris Larrabee (Michael Biehn) to protect a peaceful Seminole Indian tribe from being slaughtered by an insane ex-Confederate officer and his band of brigands. Reportedly, one of the Seven was to have been killed in the pilot and replaced by actor Francis Riley as Irish expatriate Darragh O'Malley, but the producers were so impressed by the chemistry among the leading actors that it was decided to keep the original cast intact. Once their job is done, Chris and his companions--tactiturn ex-bounty hunter Vin (Eric Close), ladies' man Buck (Dale Midkiff), defrocked priest and "mad prophet" Josiah (Ron Perlman), cynical Southern con-man Ezra (Anthony Starke), former slave Nathan (Rick Worhty) and Eastern-born naïf J.D. (Andrew Kavovit)--are invided by Judge Orin Travis (Robert Vaughn) in remain a team in order to safeguard the town of Four Corners from any and all outlaws, killers and other miscreants. Travis is willing to tolerate the the Seven's unorthodox (and sometimes downright) unethical methods, so long as they get results. Likewise grateful for the Seven's presence is Travis' widowed daughter Mary (Laurie Holden, editor of "The Daily Clarion", as well as local cowgal Casey (Dana Barron). In the course of the season's 10 episodes, our heroes rescue a group of "working girls" from their brutal overseer, redeem of professional safecracker, help Mary's son (Justin Travis) overcome a traumatic experience, and contend with the arrival of Ezra's equally larcenous mother (Michelle Phillips). Also, Chris is given an important lead to the man he holds responsible for the murder of his wife and child; an evil land developer (Tim Thomerson) shows up to gyp the locals out of their property; and in the season's final episode, the Seven square off against a corrupt sheriff (Cliff DeYoung) who is running an illicit prison camp and exploiting the convict labor. ~ Hal Erickson

    My wife wanted this DVD. I had not heard of it really. But after I have watched it I see why she wanted it. Great western, with outstanding actors. This serial was cancelled after two years on tv. Too bad. Has a lot of humor and western riding and fighting. You need to see it. Great for the whole family

    Happened to watch this great western on tv-not cable-antenna and the wife and I really enjoyed this western. It was a great story line with honest and wonderful hour shows. Just had to get the full two year run segments. All great performers put into wonderful characters. Time to watch another segment.

    Channel 4.2 THIS has been showing this tv series on Saturday nite 8 to 10 pm. It's a great series, it's old but I got so hooked on watching it, great stories, great actors, like Dale Midkiff, The late Robert Vaughn was in it sometimes. I've always love the Magnificent Seven theme music. So I was so happy to find the 2 season Dvd at best buy. I will be watching it tonite.
