| Adventures of WT and Crossbow
Hello I am surprised to see there are a TV movie and a TV series. The first one (Adventures of William Tell) is a TV movie from 1986. Then we have the TV series known as Crossbow (1987-1989). It's very rare not to see Tell and Gessler on the credits in Crossbow. Nor Horst. But they were there. Will Lyman as William Tell and Jeremy Clyde as Gov. Hermann Gessler were two great characters, two great actors.

I saw the TV series in Barcelona some years ago. I remember it was a great series. I don't remember a "end" for the series. Last episodes were very dark and confusing. I'm almost sure there was no last episode showing Gessler's death. More comments, please!
