The High Chaparral

Characters at Their Best

Characters Behaving Badly

Even heroes have a cranky day once in a while.  HC characters each had episodes where their behavior was less than exemplary.  In these episodes they may have been short-tempered, irritable, self-absorbed, immature, or merely thoughtless, but they always redeemed themselves somehow and set things right by the end of the hour -- sometimes so much so that they are listed both here for behaving badly and in "Their Finest Hour" for performing heroically.
