Weekend Viewing: BEST OF THE WEST

Earl Pomerantz’s latest series of “Story of a Writer” posts are about a show he created for Paramount in the 1981-82 season called Best of the West. The story is in four parts: Part A, and Part B, and Part C, and Part D. The show was a comedy set in the Old West, a bit like Evil Roy Slade but less broad, and probably the first ever multi-camera Western comedy. (Except for all those sitcoms that had done episodes where everybody imagines they’re cowboys.)
