Storyline

Wildfire is the story of what happens when Kris Furillo, willful daughter of a lousy mother, who took a bad start in life landing her in jail, gets parole because Pablo Betart, an excellent foreman who also had a juvenile record, gets her a job on the horse ranch of the Ritter family, where she proves her worth working with horses, especially Wildfire, but still wrestles with her past and upsets the social dynamics there, not in the least because of her appeal on the owners' teenage boys, Jean Ritter's son Matt and Ken Davis' son Kenny 'Junior' Davis.

Trivia

Dennis Weaver was contracted as a series regular. Unfortunately he was forced to withdraw from filming after only four episodes, owing to the recurrence of the prostate cancer which would kill him in early 2006. His character was written out by being referred to as having died. Weaver retained a screen credit for the remainder of the first season. See more »

Good summer show....
30 June 2005 | by (Southern California) – See all my reviews

I am 22 and I thought that a ABC family show would cater to the teens and of course it does, but I enjoy it nonetheless. Perhaps it is because it is the summer and there is nothing on TV but I really enjoy this show. And that says a lot considering I am not a horse fan (that is my sister!) I enjoy the dynamics and can forgive all the inaccuracies in the horsemanship, mostly due to the fact that I don't care. I watch this show for the relationships and not the horses. The whole situation with Wildfire only responding to Kris may be a bit far fetched but so is so many things on TV. This show has promise and even someone in their 20s can enjoy it. The acting is good and I hope that this show picks up. Watch it, you just might be surprised. There is nothing better on TV anyway!
