Enjoyed the series. Especially the later episodes.
3 June 1999 | by (Cincinnati, Ohio) – See all my reviews

"Lonesome Dove:The Series" was in a class of itself with the writing,attention to detail of the period of which the series took place, ie: clothing, set decoration, realism. The acting was excellent for the entire cast.About midway during the series short lived history plotline changed as well as character development due to tragedy in the storyline. Ratings was probably the greatest motivator for the change. The change improved the series greatly-however the ratings remained poor,thus "lonesome Dove: The Series" was canceled.
