The Loner

(1965-1966)

Western

30 minutes

Cast:

Lloyd Bridges as William Colton
 
The Loner is an American western series written by Twilight Zone creator Rod Serling that aired on CBS from September 18, 1965 to April 30, 1966. 

Due to battles with network executives, Rod Serling realized that he could only tackle deep philosophical concepts and contemporary issues if the point of his stories were wrapped up nicely in more mundane trappings.  Serling was able to slip his controversial topics past the network by wrapping them in the sci-fi cloak of the Twilight Zone.

After The Twilight Zone was cancelled, Serling crafted The Loner, the story of Civil War veteran William Colton who headed west.  In each episode, Colton would encounter a situation and attempt to deal with it the best he could.  Serling regularly used these situations as a mirror to current issues.
