    At once true to action- show rules and properly parodic about the role of good guys in the late 20th century, The Marshal is an underrated pleasure.

    That premise could make for a crisp and slick adventure hour; it did in the pilot. Already, though, Fahey's character is losing definition because of a string of unfocused scripts.

    MacBride is the kind of intense, unpredictable, almost loopy kind of character that television audiences dote on. Think Bruce Willis in "Moonlighting."

    The Marshal is retro action stuff, every week a different chase and capture, but the ungroomed MacBride has enough character - and so does the show - to distinguish it from TV's legion of mediocrities from Matlock to The Commish. [31 Jan 1995]

    Looks like a fun ride, a crime drama with more laughs than gun battles. [31 Jan 1995]

    If you like that kind of Elmore-Leonard-wannabe dialogue, you'll probably like McBride a lot. [31 Jan 1995]

    Fahey could turn into an appealing lead if given more opportunity to loosen up. [1 Feb 1995]
