An enjoyable adventure series for all!
12 August 2000 | by (Columbia, SC) – See all my reviews

If you want a great adventure series for the whole family that is not a cartoon, look no further than Animal Planet's excellent series "Call of the Wild." Buck, the canine hero of the Jack London novel, faces adventures in the town and surrounding area of Forty-Mile with his human friend Miles as well as John and Adoley Thornton. There is something for every taste here: action/adventure, drama, and a little humor and romance. Nick Mancuso (John) and Shane Meier (Miles) work well together, but the real chemistry is between Meier and Buck. Buck is fantastic! This series has everything going for it: well-written scripts, a nice cast, a nice music score, and GORGEOUS on-location photography that is nicely presented in a "matted" letterbox format. It is truly a breath of fresh air. Here's hoping many people will hear the call for a long time.
