Storyline

Teenager Billy Williams and his sister Hannah live with their mother Nancy at a hunting and fishing lodge in Rainbow Country, the popular name of the North Channel area of Lake Huron in Ontario, Canada. The lodge was built by Billy's father Frank, who disappeared two years earlier when his bush plane went down while he was prospecting for gold. At 15, Billy is an accomplished wilderness guide, scuba diver, angler, spelunker, white-water canoeist, photographer, marksman, rock climber, skydiver and electric bass player in his rock group The Thunderbirds. Billy sports a mop of shaggy blond hair and always wears a gold mohair sweater, a GWG denim jacket, beige jeans and Kodiak boots, even on the most sweltering of summer days. Billy's best friend is Pete Gawa, a native Canadian who is equally adept at all the outdoor skills.

Friday, 3:30 am, 2005, in Australia watching TV, halfway through a bottle of Cointreau (don't ask), and this comes on - what the $@%#???
21 October 2005 | by jmtrcSee all my reviews

Just been through David Letterman and MAD TV, and expecting some crap like 'Whose Line Is It Anyway' to come on, and I get this bizarre offering from our Channel Nine. I wonder who was the programmer with the sense of humour.

Actually this show looks ahead of it's time - if I hadn't checked IMDb I would have placed it in the 70's - what with that big, ropey hair on those kids. I don't know what the hell is going on - I'm in no state to figure it out anyway, and I really don't think it would matter if I were.

Sheesh, the acting's bad - but that makes it all the funnier. But there's lots of flannel shirts, boots with tassels, canoes, Injuns, rapids, and some guy who looks like an uglier, TV answer to Robert Mitchum. Some guy gets rescued from some slightly dangerous looking rocks next to a raging river ... and now they're doing one of those cheesy rap-ups where everyone is gathered around discussing the episode's events, something supposedly profound is said, followed by a bad joke where everyone laughs to end it all on a light note, and the credits roll.

Heh - whatever.
