Sgt Preston for truth, justice and the Canadian way.

"1950s TV series about a Mountie and his beloved dog, set in the late 1890s Yukon Gold Rush. Think wild woolly western travelling lawman with plenty of snow (the cold and wet kind) and no female companionship whatsoever. Richard Simmons stars as the requisite handsome mustachioed Mountie, derivative of the 1930-1950 Challenge of the Yukon Radio series. Small parts were actually filmed outdoors. There are dogsleds, steamships, telegraphs, Eskimoes, Indians, plus French and English speaking Canadians. Not quite the usual Classic Western, but produced by the same people who did The Lone Ranger. 2nd round of fun stuff.

"Much like season one of Sergeant Preston of the Yukon, Season Two had excellent production values. The audio and video restoration was super on this season of the series. Again, all the right values were being displayed during the airing of this season. Again, great writers and producers. Fran Striker stories seemed to be a notch higher than the other writers."
