If only,
11 December 2004 | by (Oklahoma City, Oklahoma) – See all my reviews

This was a good western Lee Horsely really knows how to ride a horse, the supporting cast was good and the stories were usually interesting. It was good to watch Dehl Berti play a believable one of The People (or "Indian," I suppose) and I really enjoyed the late John F. Bloom III playing Tiny. Sadly we only saw two seasons before it was superseded by "The Young Politically Correct Riders" and of course "Dr.Quinn...WOMAN Woman." Reckon today it'd be "Survivor-Paradise" or "C. S. I. Paradise." I can't wait until it's available on DVD. My parent's generation had Wagon Train and Gunsmoke and here's hoping the next generation will discover Paradise (with or without Guns.)
