nostalgia show.
9 January 2003 | by Hunky StudSee all my reviews

I taped quite a few episodes. It is a "silly" teeange show. I have never visited a dude ranch, never heard of it before this show. I thought that the guys and girls look cute. I even searched their names on line, but I can't seem to find any a while ago.

It has love, tricks, friendship, silliness. It has it all. It is fresh, it does not need to talk about sex in order to lure the audiences to watch it.

I have two fav. shows, growing pains and this one. :) I taped both.
