Did You Know? A Shiloh Quiz

Can you name a Western TV series with the name Shiloh in the title?


The Virginian is a western-themed television series which aired on NBC from 1962 to 1971 for a total of 249 episodes. It was the first western to air in 90-minute installments each week...The show differed from Wagon Train in that it was filmed in the color format from its inception...

In the final year when Colonel McKenzie took over the ranch, the name of the program was changed to The Men from Shiloh and the look of the series was completely redesigned. The hats worn featured much broader brims and higher crowns, the male characters wore beards and mustaches and the clothing was jauntier and more imaginative. These changes were not considered "improvements" by most of the fan base for the series and after nine years the series was near the end of its run. There was little that could save it as the final season brought in some big guest stars to the remaining episodes.
