Decent Cast, Decent Story, a Decent Show!!
1 July 2001 | by (Willoughby, OH, USA) – See all my reviews

I remember watching this show on Saturday nights when it was originally aired. I was a teenager who had grown tired of the evening soap operas like DALLAS but happened to see this show by accident and was caught up in the story line, at least the first 10 or so episodes. It had likeable characters and introduced me to the acting of Sam Elliot. I enjoy just about everything I see with him in it. The early episodes moved fast and held my attention. The last 10 episodes became less and less entertaining. I can see why NBC cancelled it. However, I was fortunate enough to video tape the entire series last year off of TV LAND and enjoy watching the episodes every now and then.

I still like this shows opening song and version of "THE YELLOW ROSE OF TEXAS."
