9/12. For someone who is not a Western fan, but did watch this show as a child because everybody else in the family liked it, that was better than I expected to do.

There was more than one opening credits sequence! In the "nightime" opening, we hear somber music play for a few seconds before Lucas emerges from the darkness to send his target to perdition...
