| The Overland Trail, aka The Overland Stage
Overland Trail, aka Overland Stage, is an entertaining Western that never caught on with the public. Was it because of "Western Fatigue"? Was it because the show aired on Sunday nights, up against powerful competition on other networks including Lassie, and The Ed Sullivan Show? Was there a lack of chemistry between the two lead characters? Was character Flip Flippen's incessant skirt-chasing a bit offensive to the Sunday night audience? Should Overland Trail have been a 30-minute show, instead of the one hour program that sometimes dragged in the middle?

When the show failed to draw an audience after a four month run, the network cancelled Overland Trail. That's a shame, because all 17 shows are entertaining; a couple of them are quite good.

I rate this short-lived series 9 out of 10 stars.
