Loved RJR!
5 July 2009 | by mikeinpghSee all my reviews

I loved Run Joe Run! It's a little hard to remember all the details but I remember always rooting for Joe's owner to catch Joe so he could clear Joe's name & be reunified again. Alas, it never happened & we never even got a closing final episode to tie up the loose ends spin off or movies were ever made. Poor Joe is still running wild out there, with many villains out to get him with his only real friend searching in vain! Come Home Joe, Come Home! :)

OK, I need to write more lines before I can submit so...I think Joe was written during the sad story line days of the mid 70's. There were so many tearjerking songs written then...remember "Wild Fire" (horse), "Shannon" (dog), "Seasons in the Sun" (guy dying), "Rocky" (girl dying), "Judy Mae" (boy's dad dying after finding his new wife & son in bed!)...I know there were many more songs about dying during that time. I wonder why? Musta been all the drugs from the 60's!
