Nichols (NBC 1971, James Garner, Margot Kidder)

Published

Period crime drama series Nichols told stories of a small town Sheriff in 1915 who patrolled his beat on a motorcycle and was more interested in making money than being a sheriff. Nichols had returned home after the first world to the home town that was named after his family.

Nichols is probably the least well remembered of James Garner’s TV shows. Especially as it only last the one season. Garner, once the cancellation for the series came in, took the unusual step of killing off Nichols. The final episode focused on his twin brother trying to avenge his death.

Rockford Files devotees may be interested to note the appearance of Stuart “Angel” Margolin.
