This would as often as not lead to the mistaken idea that Paladin was a professional killer a term he resented which would either result in people who wanted to avoid violence turning down his offer without hearing him out, or people who wanted a killer demanding he assassinate someone. In response, Paladin would either prove himself a good person, wait for the situation to become dire enough that his would be clients realized they had no other choice but to hire him, or turn to work for the innocent people his crooked client wanted him to kill. Another common mishap was that Paladin would often be mistaken as a "dandy" from the east before proving himself to be a BadAss. Equally common were episodes taking place after one of Paladin's jobs, where he stumbled upon an adventure quite by accident.

''Note'': Although GeneRoddenberry regularly claimed to have been the show's head writer, he wasn't - the show didn't have one - but he penned numerous episodes as a freelance writer. In fact, he has more writing credits on this show than any other series he worked on. (Yes, including [[Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries this one]].)

Episodes ranged in tone from dark and deadly serious, to light hearted comedy, giving Boone excellent chance to display his range as an actor. The setting could vary from the prairie of the old west, the deserts of Mexico, the snow covered rocky mountains, the small town, to the big city. The show attracted dozens of guest stars, including Creator/CharlesBronson, Creator/VincentPrice, Creator/JohnCarradine (father of David Carradine), and Creator/LeeVanCleef. There was also a [[RadioDrama radio version]], running from 1958 to 1960, which starred John Dehner as Paladin; it was one of the last radio dramas with regular characters. In addition, there have been three books published based on the TV show, and a movie is in the works, but has languished in DevelopmentHell since 1997. It was set for a 2013 release, obviously that didn't happen. All six seasons are available instantly on {{Netflix}}.

Added DiffLines:

** It should be noted that Richard Boone himself was a real life example of a CulturedBadass, being a decorated War Hero and golden-gloves boxer on top of being a classically trained Shakespearean actor.
