Better than "The Outlaw Years"
23 October 2000 | by See all my reviews

I thought it was a great show and was sorry to see it end. It was much better than the later "Outlaw Years" episodes. "The Outlaw Years" were good but I don't think they had the heart that "The Series" did. They were just more enjoyable and was very well acted. Watch both and see what you think, and although many will disagree with me, I think that "The Series" surpassed "The Outlaw Years" by a long shot.
