Miss this show tremendously, 31 August 2002
Author: Rebecca from Great Plains of Kansas

This show was awesome. One of the best of the early 90's. I had the hugest crush on Ty Miller, where did he go? :( I miss him! I'm glad that Josh Brolin, Melissa Leo, Don Franklin, Stephen Baldwin, and Brett Cullen still have good careers going, but where did the others go?? I especially adored Yvonne Suhor, who played Louise McCloud. SIghhhhhhh...... I hope the whole series is on DVD someday. :)
