T.J. Cousins is a mountain man who committed some grisly murders a few years ago. Currently he is in prison. Now a drug dealer also in the same prison hires T.J. to lead him through the Sierras. Now the "High Mountain Rangers" a group who's assigned the task of bringing T.J. and the other escapees back, are on the case but T.J. proves to be too wily for them, and kills one of them. So Matt Hawkes, one of the rangers, decides to get help from the man who caught T.J., his father, Jesse Hawkes. Now it seems that Hawkes felt that T.J. should have been executed but that sentenced was reduced to life imprisonment, so he left the rangers and lives in a cabin up in the mountains. Jesse at first decides not to do it but eventually changes his mind. But as I said T.J. is too wily. And he also wants to get his hands on Hawkes. Written by <rcs0411@yahoo.com>

high mountain rangers
18 May 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was an excellent series. I would really like to see it released on DVD. The actors were really good in their parts and the group as a whole worked very well together. I recently met Russell Todd who played Jim Cutter in this show and he was very nice. The scenery the show used was beautiful and I felt that the cast really played the parts well. Other series are being released on DVD, why not this one. Robert Conrad used his own sons in this series and they were very good. The individual story lines were exciting and I waited each week to see the next episode.As in any series, there were characters that I loved and others that I hated. But overall this was a very good show that should have run longer than it did. I would even like to see re-runs on a cable channel if possible.
