Best 80s western, would still hold it's own today....
13 January 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

To my knowledge they have never released this series on tape/DVD or I would have jumped on it in a heartbeat. Would love for my kids to see this series, Named my son after the lead character.. :) Would love to trade with anyone that has this series..

My wife and I watched this series from the time it first aired to the time it was canceled. What a shame, this series was good and family oriented. All about a wrongly accused Gunslinger that tried to leave his past behind when he went to care for/raise his dying sisters 4 kids. It may have been a formulaic series, slightly predictable but it was worth your time, unlike many of the shows on the "tube" these days... Wish it was still in syndication.. :(

Thanks..
