... and Comet the Wonder Horse

There's one thing about NBC's coverage of the last few Olympics that makes me sad, or at least nostalgic in a melancholy-longing sort of way. For some of their "coming up" bumpers and other spots, NBC, for some unknown reason, uses the theme from one of my favorite TV shows, the all-too-short-lived "Adventures of Brisco County, Jr."

This show lasted for one season, in 1993-94, but is still fondly remembered and was rerun for a while on TNT. It was a sort of cross between "The Wild Wild West" and "Indiana Jones" with B-movie cult favorite Bruce "Evil Dead" Campbell in the title role as a bounty hunter, strongly supported by Julius Carry and Christian Clemenson, and the occasional cameo by the wonderful John Astin.

And, yes, Comet the Wonder Horse.
