This miniseries came on when I was 20.. I was still living at home and was more interested in dating..But The night it first came on I was hooked!! I stayed home to see all of it and laughed, cried, the works.. I fell in love with ALLLLL the characters... ROBERT DUVALL is without a doubt one of the best actors of our time.. TOMMY LEE JONES is just as good..and all the others..The whole cast was perfect for their parts!!... I bought the 4 tape set when it came out and now the DVD...At least once every 3 weeks I have A 'LONESOME DOVE " party and we drink and toast to the Texas RANGERS!!LONG LIVE NEWT, MCCRAE, CPT CALL,DEETS,LORENA,PEA EYE,AND ALL THE OTHERS... ALSO.. BLESS YOU ROBERT URICH..
