I always loved the High Chaparral, but liked it less after Billy Blue left to become a cartoonist (?). I didn't like the later episodes very much, but there was something in one of them that was unintentionally funny. The HC guys were in hot pursuit of a stagecoach containing the bad guys. Uncle Buck galloped up to the rear of the coach and grabbed onto the boot, swinging himself onto the coach and slugging the bad guy who fell off the coach. Now, I loved Uncle Buck; he was probably my very favorite of all the characters on the show, but, really? I don't think he was up to that kind of gymnastics, especially since he seemed most of the time to be unable to walk a straight line ! I still love the show, in spite of that, and I always watch this episode just for that scene alone!
