I watched the show regularly when it was initially syndicated. It wasn't sold very well and the expectations for it apparently weren't high as in this area it was on Saturday afternoons when there wasn't a college game to televise. Maybe they thought the show would be targeted for young children but it really wasn't. The leads were very good and Lynda Carter proved to be beautiful to look at even all covered up 1700s style clothing. If you like this time period and have a chance to catch one of these episodes you should check it out. Each episode was a stand alone but like anything else if you could see it play out over a few episodes you get a better feel for the characters. I was very disappointed when it was canceled, I thought with this entertaining of a show it would find an audience but it probably was buried and not promoted in other markets as well as the local one here. Too bad.
