One of our local stations (MeTV: Memorable Entertainment Television) is showing Trackdown, a western from the 50's starring one of my all-time favorite actors Robert Culp. I haven't watched yet, but I have it programmed on my DVR. I've been waiting about 30 years to see this series!

Thanks for the heads up. Dvdr set.

Robert Culp was in a lot of stuff I like:

See the Man Run (1971)
A Cold Night's Death (1973)

The Outer Limits: Demon with a Glass Hand (1964)
The Outer Limits: The Architects of Fear (1963)
Columbo: Death Lends a Hand (1971)

I have now watched a few episodes and it's a decent series, better than average for a Western with a small budget.
But I'd watch anything with Culp in it. I especially liked him in a Catalina set Name of the Game episode with Barbara Feldon that had all the earmarks of a Culp rewritten script, as he was wont to do.
It nicely captured the 1960's vibe. COZI tv used to rerun the series till last year.
On several episodes of I Spy, Bill Cosby calls Culps' character Kelly "Hobie", Culp's name in Trackdown. I Spy was one of the greats but I haven't watched it since it became plain Cosby was a very sick and twisted man.
Maybe one day I can separate the Man from his Art and enjoy I Spy again. I read a couple of networks are again running his Cosby sitcom.
Too soon for me.

Maybe this gif from Leonard:Part 6 will help?

Or maybe not.

Marlboro,
Thanks, I think, for sharing that. If I recall correctly "Leonard: Part 6" is what killed Cosby's movie career. I'm glad he didn't guest star on Magnum PI.

Only saw one episode so far, but I LOVE it!
Culp is just so cool.
