I remember watching a show in the late 70's or early 80's that I would like to see again. Each episode had 3 on-going stories. So each episode adds a little to each story. The episodes don't stand on their own. The first story was a wild west story: mid to late 19th century, small town, gunfighters, etc. This was no ordinary wild west story as there were aliens. I think I remember 1 episode where they showed a spaceship. That's all I can remember about that story. The second story was about a female investigative reporter. She finds out something really big is going to happen. She doesn't know what but it's big like a terrorist attack or assassination or something. The whole story is her following clues trying to figure out what this big event is. I thought it might have been Susan Anton but I don't recognize the names of her shows in the 70's and 80's on IMDB so I don't know if it was her. I don't remember anything about the 3rd story. I saw maybe 5-10 episodes and then I don't know what happened. It might have been canceled. That's not much to go on but that's all I can remember. Thanks for reading.

    Any other clues? What language was it in? What country did you watch it in? It sounds like an American show, but that can't be assumed on this site.

  • I watched it in Canada in English. It would definitely have been American.

I am pretty sure you are talking about Cliffhangers

...three serials were featured - a mystery, a science fiction/western hybrid, and a horror story:

"Stop Susan Williams": Susan Anton stars as a beautiful TV journalist investigating the murder of her brother, and stumbling on a vast international conspiracy.

"The Secret Empire": the adventures of a U.S. marshal (Geoffrey Scott) in the Old West who stumbles upon a futuristic underground city run by aliens.

"The Curse of Dracula": starring Michael Nouri as Count Dracula, who is living undercover as a college teacher in 1979 San Francisco.

    What about Cliffhangers matches the description?

  • Wow! Brandon, I think you nailed it. That was impressive. Looks like I was right about Susan Anton but wrong about a couple of other facts. I even recognize the title. Thanks.

  • phantom42, I think I was wrong about the spaceship but other than that what I wrote seems very similar to the description Brandon found and posted above. I'm pretty sure the show is Cliffhangers.

I do not remember the 3 on-going stories feature, but your description resembles Outlaws...


  • Outlaws looks like just 1 story so that can't be it. Thanks.
