neon rider
27 December 2006 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I am also a Canadian and was born here 33 years ago. I am sad to see people not seeing how programs like this can help people with certain things that often DO come up in a teens life. I think the basis of good old fashioned plots in television is never wrong...how can there possibly be anything wrong with a positive message? What if one of us had a teenager in trouble and they per chance were channel surfing and saw an episode of Neon rider on teen pregnancy or racism, and they are in someway or another either comforted or found help with their problem? How can that not be a great thing?!? I have to admit, I am quite certain that while although a majority of Canadians are living a normal life(and what is normal?) but unfortunately, there IS a lot of family dysfunction as well. And a program like Neon rider can not do anything but help.
