I've stated this several times in the recent past - it doesn't matter what a character's name may be in the credits, it's what is stated within the show that ultimately matters in Toobworld.

For research on a piece I'm writing about 'Journeyman', I re-watched the pilot and several episodes of 'The Adventures Of Brisco County, Jr.'

One of the five "robber barons" who basically held the reins of power from within the Westerfield Club in San Francisco back in 1893 was Francis Kilbridge, who made his fortune in shipping.

As played by Paul Brinegar, I've seen his name listed as "Francis Kilbride" in just about everything except a very nice
'Brisco County' website at "The Oasis".

But Kilbridge himself pronounces it with that "g" sound, as do other characters throughout the series. And that's what matters within the reality of the TV Universe, not some mis-spelled credits or information sites like
