Legend: The Complete Series (1995) – By Jason S. Lockard

 

There are some shows that are cancelled before they have a chance to really gain it’s audience. One such show was a science fiction western entitled “Legend”. Now thanks to the good folks at Mill Creek Entertainment Legend makes it way to DVD for the first time ever.

Legend follows Ernest Pratt (played by Richard Dean Anderson), a gambling, womanizing, cowardly, hard-drinking writer of a series of dime novels, that featured the dashing hero, Nicodemus Legend.

Pratt learns that someone has been using the name of Nicodemus Legend. He find out it’s eccentric European scientist Janos Bartok played by John de Lancie who is best know from playing Q in Star Trek The Next Generation. Pratt decides to join Bartok to become the true legend he wrote about in his books.

This show is a perfect mix of action adventure science fiction and comedy. I never got a chance to watch this show on it’s first run and I have to say I didn’t know what I was missing. This is a really fun show and I am not a huge fan of westerns.

This 2 disc dvd set includes all 12 episodes including the pilot movie. Many legendary characters show up in this short lived series, such as President Ulysses S. Grant, General Custer and Wild Bill Hickok.

So if you are a fan of the tv show Legend or of sci-fi westerns, do yourself a favour and pick up this awesome collection. Head over to www.MillCreekEnt.com or your local video provider and pick this one up today!
