Cheesy Good Fun
27 July 2005 | by JanieJane96See all my reviews

I think the other user has mistaken this "Black Stallion" for the timeless film classic of the same name. This is the TV SHOW based on that film and the books by Walter Farley. This was a short-lived series that ran on the Family Channel in the early 1990's. I was in middle school and high school then, and had a big crush on the guy who played Alec. Though the show was pretty cheesy and the plot lines corny, it was still enjoyable. I was a big fan of the Black Stallion and horses in general, so this show was a "cult favorite" of mine. The only similarity between the show and the movie is that Mickey Rooney reprises his role as Henry the trainer. Alec has grown up a bit (he's in his late teens/early '20s here), and they introduce a new character: a French Canadian girl named Nicole who works as a stable hand while trying to find her long-lost father. I haven't seen this show in over ten years, and I'm excited to see that it's on DVD. Maybe I'll rent it for old time's sake. Just don't watch it expecting to see the movie version or a show that is of the same quality. It's pretty low budget, but enjoyable for what it is.
