    I remember watching this at my Grandma & Granda's house when I stayed there at weekends! Kurt Russel was alright but I liked his dark haired brother (Tim Matheson ?) I thought he was hot, when I was 8 or 9 years old!!

    Oh Crikey yes, I remember this one alright- largely due to my older sister having had a rapacious crush on Kurt Russell ('Two Persons' as his character's Indian name was). She had a massive poster of him on the back of her bedroom door that stayed there for years, long after the show had ended and was getting forgotten about! I think that Kurt Russell went on to marry Goldie Hawn (though they're dvorced now).
