The Big Valley

Post by Calamity Liz » Wed Jun 19, 2013 11:40 pm

There were two reasons to watch Big Valley: Nick and Jarrod!

Image

Peter Breck as Nick Barkley in the episode, Cage of Eagles with no other than Pernell Roberts!


Image

Richard Long as Jarrod Barkley in Run of the Cat! Look who's the guest star again!

Richard Long played the eldest brother in Big Valley, Jarrod, and he had amazing blue eyes and jet black hair.

Nick was the most boisterous of the Barkley sons, he was larger than life with the prettiest hazel eyes.

The Big Valley is nice to watch! Three handsome cowboys!
I love all three - as different as the Cartwright brothers and just like Adam, Hoss, and Joe, completely brothers at all times.

I love this picture of Peter (Nick) :thud

Now this was another Western I *loved*!

Jarrod was my guy here! And lookie! He had *blue* eyes! I sense a pattern here! :think

When I see Lee Majors as Heath, it amazes me how far he came! As with Linda Evans! :yes

Another great western series! The handsome Barkley men and the tough as nails mother Victoria Barkley kind of reminded me of the Cartwrights.

I like Eugene and was annoyed when he left the show- (he was always off to college)-later learned that he had been drafted, think it was army, in real life!

I loved this show. I remember my friends and I huddled round The Fab 208 magazine in the school playground as teenagers drooling over the Barkley brothers!!

My brothers used to watch this show. It came on right before Bonanza. In fact, the first time I found out about Bonanza, I was in the living room with my brothers and they were watching Big Valley and all of a sudden, I was trying to figure out where the Barkleys had gone and they were like 'This is Bonanza...'
