A show that should of stayed on the air much longer
4 October 2003 | by See all my reviews

I remember I got into "Texas" as one of the newest soap on the air back in 1981 and I thought it was a good show. Too bad it didn't do much for ratings when it was against "General Hospital" (which was the number 1 soap at the time) and "Guiding Light" which I particular liked this show and the cast and I thought it was so good when they did on location scenes and the sets which they were taping in a studio in Brooklyn, NY. I wish NBC gave it more time to find an audience for the show to continue on. But they were fans (like myself) were outraged when the show was cancelled and it only proved that viewers wrote to NBC to place their complaint and it was the most mail that NBC got at the time than any other show on the air daytime or primetime. (Too bad this show was not on the air on CBS which at the time CBS cancelled "Cagney and Lacey" only to prove they got letters of protest to reconsider them to put them back on the air). But I did enjoy the show and the characters and it will always be remembered for me of this show.
