I love this show
13 July 1999 | by (Cleveland Tn, USA) – See all my reviews

This show is one of my all time favorites!!!! I love the comradery between A.J. and Rick, even though they are brothers. When times get tough they are there for each other. It is too bad that we do not have many shows on today like that.
