"Gideon Oliver":- KENNONITE
13 November 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Somehow I seemed to have missed this TV Series starring Louis Gossett,Jr. In this particular TV Series, Louis Gossett(Gideon Oliver),"Deceived",'02, is called to a small town by an old time Kennonite friend who needs his help in solving a murder. The Kennonite family lives like the AMISH or Mennonite people and are not into violence and are being accused of murdering a nearby neighbor. Gideon has to fight the local town people and the sheriff who is controlled by the powerful local politicians. The story gets quite involved with a Kennonite young lady who managed to go to college and learned computers and is struggling with her life in the Kennonite CLAN! If you are a big fan of Louis Gossett, Jr., this is a great TV Series to enjoy viewing.
