Throughout the series various characters mispronounce "cavalry" as "calvary", confusing a pair of near-homonyms with Latin origins. Cavalry means soldiers on horseback. Calvary means an object shaped like a skull. The most (in)famous "place of the skull" (Calvariae Locus in Latin) was a Jerusalem landmark where Jesus Christ and various convicts were crucified during Roman Empire times. See more »
The opening credits as originally designed for the pilot (and included on the season 1 DVD) show the animated cowboy knocking down the woman trying to stab him. In the first season as aired, the cowboy kisses the woman, who dreamily turns away instead of trying to stab him. Later episodes reinstated the cowboy knocking the woman down. See more »
I have loved this show since I was a child and I still do. The chemistry between the two partners & friends is impeccable (not like the movie in which they were always at odds). And as a young girl, I was totally swept away with the James West character as played by Robert Conrad. There will never be another TV character or series to compare.
