Wasted time on a Saturday
1 October 2005 | by See all my reviews

I remember seeing the promos for this series and my brothers and I thought it looked kind of interesting but after a short time it just became repetitious and depressing. A stately, do-gooding dog who is falsely accused of attacking his trainer is chased from town to town, never able to just become the beloved household pet that all dogs long to be. The series was certainly original in that it was the first (and thankfully last) German Sheperd soap opera on television. Rather depressing and I am not surprised that it is not in syndication the way other Saturday morning shows from my youth are like Scooby Doo. How the writers thought that this would become a big hit with children I will never know and what a premise ???!!! In 1974 our military couldn't come up with a task force to look into how exposure to Agent Orange harmed our troops but they evidently had the time and personnel to chase this one dog all over this great land of ours. Even at age 9 I should have realized how ridiculous this idea was. By the way, I am shocked that this series is actually remembered by 4 people outside of family. This is one OBSCURE show.
