I liked it better than season one
I didn't really plan to watch season 2 but it came on at the end of the last episode of Season one. The five episodes of Season 2 are, on the whole, better than the average season one episode. The last program in season 2 is an episode of the old Boots and Saddles series which was a childhood favorite. Even though the cavalry is equipped with the wrong weapons and the Apache trap is silly, it is still pretty good though the picture quality is poor. This season is also free for streaming via Amazon Prime.

Wonderful to see great westerns almost as old as I am
I am a fan of westerns because the early writers were excellent. And most of the time the honest , hard working people came out ahead. Some of the stories deal with parts of history that few are aware of. There was a lot of violence but knowing that there were law officers and brave proud people willing to combat evil leaves me with a good feeling. I watch all the old westerns that I can find just as I read the old pulp fiction stories. They make me feel good. Right wins.

The Forsaken Westerns Season 2
A nostalgic look at some never before seen old westerns from about 1950ish. Some episodes feature future screen stars and their sidekicks. I think these 1/2 hour episodes would appeal more to the older generation than the young kids. I'd recommend these to anyone in the category of a senior citizen.
