Lancer is the story of a rancher who struggles to hang onto his vast holdings in California's San Joaquin Valley with the help of his two sons and his ward. Scott, whose mother died in childbirth, is Murdoch Lancer's older son. He was raised by his maternal grandfather in Boston. Younger son Johnny was taken from his father by his Mexican mother when he was only around two. He grew up around the Mexican border and went by the name "Johnny Madrid", under which he earned a reputation as a fast gun. Deservedly so apparently, as men from his past occasionally showed up to cause problems for Johnny and his newfound family. Teresa O'Brien, daughter of Murdoch's murdered ranch foreman is Murdoch's ward and a surrogate sister to the two boys.
I have to NOT agree on this last comment about Lancer. One reason you have it all wrong, Johnny never did have his eye poked out in any episode, as I know I have all of them. And two, It was very well produced and the stories were down to earth and very enjoyable to watch. You must have seen another show that reminded you of Lancer, and I couldn't go by and not correct this mistake. I truly loved this show and hope it does come out on DVD soon, short lived or not, it was one of the best for that time. I do say if you haven't seen it and it does come out on cable or DVD I suggest to take a look and see for yourself. You will not be sorry that you did.
