Go To

  • Awesome, Dear Boy: To quote Bruce Campbell:
    It's every actor's dream to play a cowboy, so when this opportunity came up, I mean, yeah, where do I sign?
  • Creator's Favorite:
    • Bruce Campbell cited Brisco County Jr. as his favorite role. On the special DVD featurette he commented "it was the most exhausting, physically demanding year of my life. It was also the best." The other cast members all shared similar sentiments.
    • Julius Carry named Bowler as his favourite role.

  • The Danza: In "Senior Spirit," the kidnapped boy Jason is played by Jason Marsden.
  • Friday Night Death Slot: Creator Carlton Cuse blames this for the show's failure. However, it should be noted that it was paired with another new show called The X-Filesnote .
  • Reality Subtext: Originally, the writers envisioned the rivalry between Brisco and Bowler lasting longer. However, as Bruce Campbell and Julius Carry had such strong chemistry, the writers were compelled to have them interact more often - leading to Brisco and Bowler becoming close friends sooner than expected.
  • Screwed by the Network: On the DVD, Carlton Cuse laments that had they been able to make it to a second season, the show probably could have lasted for a very long time. David Duchovny, star of another Fox show that debuted in 1993 (and which followed Brisco County on Friday nights), also lamented its fate.

  • Unfinished Episode: According to writer Carlton Cuse, had the series been renewed for a second season, the main plot line would have centered around Brisco County Jr. eventually settling down, marrying Dixie Cousins, and becoming a sheriff to a town populated by all sorts of characters with similar characteristics to many of the guest characters from Season One.
