Another show from the 80's that didn't get enough respect
20 August 2007 | by darthmetalhead1See all my reviews

I agree..I thought this was Dr. Quinn in the late 80's :) This show did not get enough credit and I wish I knew someone that had these episodes taped on video tape so I could have a copy of these episodes. If anyone out there has a copy of these episodes please let me know. Again seeing Wilford Brimley and Deidre Hall before she got the role on Day's of Our lives was another great reason to watch the show. This was another show in the 80's that helped me grow up. Can anyone tell what the real reason for why the show got cancelled. BTW, Out of this World, Second Chance, Starman and War of the Worlds the series were among other great series that never got off the ground :(
