This black-and-white western series was also a radio drama. The main character's name was never revealed, but his pseudonym corresponds to that of an iconic character type in RPGs. He handed out a business card containing his motto, which was also the name of the show.

Some people call this junk. Me, I call them treasures.

I haven't watched it, but based on most of the clue, I'd guess The Lone Ranger. (Though having a motto that's just "The Lone Ranger" would seem sort of odd.)

Chuck is correct!

The character's moniker was "Paladin."

Nope. Additional hint - A riches to rags to riches to an unexplainably comfortable lifestyle story.

I mean, we were just talking about his TV-verse, so I'm leaning towards Arrow.

Behind the scenes at a SportsCenter-like cable show, but the sports are mostly incidental to the plot.

Okay, time to give some hints, I guess.

This was an American half-hour show that ran for two seasons. It featured a "walk-and-talk" style of staging a scene that the writer/creator would make famous on another, much more long-running and beloved show.

One of the episodes of this TV Series was "The Man With The Power", starring Donald Pleasance, Priscilla Morrill and Edward Platt.

This episode made a great impression on me when I saw it when it came out, and it remains one of the best of this TV series.

I made an incorrect guess. The correct answer was a good series.

Is that the correct answer? Or is the Twilight Zone?

I made a guess in my head. It proved to be incorrect.

If I have to Google something to verify it, I don't submit the guess.

...So, without googling, it's not "The Twilight Zone"?
