4. Four single men living alone in the country.
Bonanza by a mile. There's a lot of room for fantasy in that. Lock me up with Adam and/or Little Joe...

7. High Chaparral
Henry Darrow is the only actor I can remember, but I had the swoons for a good portion of that cast.

8. I used to LOVE Alias Smith & Jones-
and got really bummed when Pete Duel killed himself.

Happily- the show has been dusted off and shows daily on the Wetern channel.

http://www.personalephemera.com/alias/bios.html

...However, in the early morning hours of December 31, 1971, Pete Duel died of a gunshot wound to the head, an apparent suicide. He was discovered by his girlfriend, Diane Ray, who reported to police that she had been sleeping in another room and had been awakened by the sound of a gunshot. It appears that he had long struggled with depression. He was apparently despondent over a number of things, including a failed relationship, an alcohol problem which had led to the revocation of his driver's license after a series of DUIs, the shooting schedule of the series which left him with little time for other work or for his favorite pastime of wilderness camping, and an overwhelming sense of pessimism about the future of the world, and particularly the environment.

9. No Have Gun, Will Travel?
I voted for Maverick because that was my #1 back then. But Have Gun, Will Travel was definitely #2, and I'm surprised not to see it on the list.
