One of the things that really struck me was how the teenagers all interacted with Buddy. I was really surprised they were so patient with him, going out of their way to make sure he was listened to and included. I understand that's how it was written but it's a dynamic that's rarely present nowadays. Any show that has teenagers and middle-schoolers together more often than not has tension between those characters. Usually it's the younger kids wanting attention and the older kids not wanting to be anywhere near the brats.
Another thing which stood out was the careful editing. It's like a neon sign now but back then I didn't know Brad wasn't riding that galloping horse, or Ted wasn't really in danger of being kicked by a stallion. It is very much a product of its time and I like that about it. I enjoy watching for those moments and seeing how they were made to convince an untrained eye what was occurring on screen.
This series has found its way into a lot of people's hearts, and I believe one of the reasons for that is more than half of the cast never went on to do anything else. Thus, there is no getting a fix for any of the actors. They're trapped in celluloid forever for fans here but nowhere else.Read more ›
This show originally aired from 1989-1991 and was one of Nickelodeon's first scripted shows produced. Right there, it holds a place in television history, right?
The show follows the misadventures of the staff of a dude ranch in Arizona. While all the sets were constructed, it was filmed on an actual guest ranch in Arizona, giving it a very real feeling.
In the first episode, we meet the teen staff. The three returning staff members are Ted (David Lascher) who has just been promoted to senior staff (whatever that means). There's Melody (Christine Taylor) who is the lifeguard at the rarely seen pool. Rounding out this trio is Danny (Joe Torres), a Hopi Indian. The new girl on the block is Brad (Kelly Brown). She's rich yet is working at the ranch because she loves horses. On the adult front, there's Lucy (Debrah Kalman). She's in charge of the stables and is kind but firm.
As the series opens, the ranch has just been bought by Benjamin Ernst (David Brisbin), and he's moved out there from New Jersey with his son Buddy (Josh Tygiel). Mr. E doesn't know his way around the ranch and is often trying to come up with ways to advertise that don't quite work out. He's your typical bumbling adult on a kid's show, but he does have his moments that show he's much smarter than he normally looks.
The plots for these episodes are usually fairly light and fun. The guys take on the girls to prove who is the best.Read more ›
