Decent Lassie movie made for TV...
5 June 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This film rarely is shown, a made for TV movie that looks like it was meant to be a series, but did not get picked up by any network. If it comes on, one should try to catch it.

It is totally enjoyable for any Lassie fan, an outdoors adventure with Lassie and two orphan children on a trek to locate their uncle, and stay ahead of the authorities. Although it is predictable, there are actually a few instances where events happen that are surprising. The Lassie used by the trainers of the original TV series Lassie is a descendant of the original, and looks and sounds just like what we would expect Lassie to be.
