Spectacular!
8 March 2002 | by (Elkhart, Indiana) – See all my reviews

This show is a favorite of mine and my husbands. Too bad Westerns weren't popular at that time. It might of lasted longer. We like it so much that we're trying to find copies of the episodes from the show but have been having extreme difficulty locating. We even went so far as to contact Ingrid Thornton on her web site but have still had no luck in finding any episodes. Anyone have copies they'd like to sell or know specifically where we could find? Please contact us.
