User Reviews

Is there any way to get copies of this show?
2 April 2017 | by kkcraginSee all my reviews

I remember watching this show when it first aired and I recently have been watching as many episodes as I can find on youtube. I would LOVE to be able to purchase a decent copy of all three seasons. Lee Horsley as Ethan Cord shows such great characteristics that I want my boys to see and emulate. Honor, responsibility, and charm. I hope some day this will be put on DVD.
