Thor's Day Hero: Brisco County Junior
This was a tough call, do I include Brisco County Junior, or just throw Bruce Campbell under the Thor's Day Hero bus as a catch-all. In the end, as you may have guessed, I went with the dashing Harvard graduate turned bounty hunter.
The Adventures of Brisco County Junior was a great show, and in rare cross-genre genius it was two equal parts science fiction and western, with a pinch of steampunk thrown in for good measure. With Campbell at the helm, the jokes were fluid and plentiful. The action was pretty good, the sci-fi elements neat, and the whole affair was rolled up into a burrito well worth dining on. So welcome aboard Brisco, sorry we couldn't make room for Comet.
