An Excellent Show That Didn't Get A Chance!
27 July 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Boone was much too short-lived. It was an excellent and promising show with a wonderful star. I enjoyed the relationship between the father and the son, even though they didn't agree about Boone's future. I got the impression that Boone could have given Elvis a run for his money if the show had lasted long enough. Boone was a responsible young man who had a quiet passion for his music. He had the highest respect for his father and for the rest of his family. He worked, and planned for his dream. I would love to know what ever happened to Thomas Byrd, who had the lead in this show. He had so much potential, and I thought I was seeing the beginning of a promising career.
