      Plot Summary
      In this Western series, Jason McCord, the only survivor of the Battle of Bitter Creek,
      is court-martialed and kicked out of the Army because of his alleged cowardice.
      Rather than demean the good name of the Army commander
      who was actually to blame for the massacre, McCord travels the Old West
      trying to restore his good name and reputation.
      Written by Marty McKee

    • Re: (New Review) Classic TV Westerns- Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman (1993–1998)

      Branded is a Western series which aired on NBC from 1965 through 1966,
      sponsored by Procter & Gamble in its Sunday night 8:30 p.m. Eastern Time period,
      and starred Chuck Connors as Jason McCord, a United States Army Cavalry captain
      who had been drummed out of the service following an unjust accusation of cowardice.

      Also look out for amongst others, outings of
      John Carradine ,Lee Van Cleef, Boyd 'Red' Morgan
      John Ireland , Peter Graves , Carlos Rivas

      and Harry Carey Jr.

      Remembrances of a naive 3 yr old...
      14 January 2002 | by michael autin ([email protected]) (Atwater, USA)

      I was but a wee lad of 3 when this show captured some of my brain cells for ever. I remember the title song, and the ripping of his insignia rank, and his sabre being broken. VERY strong images, not unlike the rat patrol and for that matter ANY tv show of the mid-late 60's. The story lines are only sketchy. The fact that the character was given short shrift legally and thereby justice wise haunt me to this day. As a young child my belief in our american justice system stems from these images... Life has sailed down other waters.... for as I have gone through our educational system these idealized morality shows hold the same power, but the promise of a just ending is always infinitely more difficult to achieve. Most of the hard edged shows like this one are not oft replicated... They attempt to acomplish the same storylines today with modern settings, but most late night crime dramas play like soap operas as opposed to the tone and vector of "perry mason" I would like to see this and other series released in their "Entirity" and not edited and slap dashed to be politically and religiously correct, for to alter their impact in that way is to denigrate who and what we are as a nation and a people. Besides what impact other than simple historical and entertainment can these beloved series wield today? Except to offer heroes who truly can not be "bought" to skew the viewing public into another course of attitude, except fond rememberance, and a ready made source of topical discussion.

    • Branded .. 1965 to 1966

      The first western t.v. show I watched was Branded with Chuck Connors as Jason McCord

      It ran from 1965 to 66 in 30 min episodes ( 48 in total )

      I always remembered the beginning as McCord was kicked out of the army after being accused of cowardice

      Anyone else remember the show ?

    • Re: Classic TV Westerns- Branded (1965–1966)

      I remember it, even though I was only a year older than the person who wrote the above listed review.

      I remember everything HE remembered: the music, the ripping of his "bars" from his shoulders, the saber broken over the thigh of the (I presume) commanding officer, and him walking out of the fort in disgrace.

      Then...zilch!

      I'll probably get the DVDs.
    • On seeing it again--I only liked a few episodes--unless your a Chuck Connors fanatic--or a Westerns fanatic? this series aint for you.The Loner is another that isnt as good as it could have been.
