I watched this series from the first one, and each week I looked forward anxiously to the next episode. The series was canceled after a short run (maybe 6 weeks), and I really couldn't understand why. It was a great show, with good acting and plot. Even if it would one day be available on DVD, it would still end in the middle of all the plots. I especially liked the western episode called "The Secret Empire". It was one of the most imaginative shows I have ever seen. It starts out like a standard western, where a ranchers cattle are being stolen. When the ranch hands chase the rustlers, they seem to disappear into a mountain. eventually, someone discovers the entrance to the inside of the mountain, and when they enter, what they find turns the show into a science fiction.
