Anthony Zerbe as Teaspoon is the best. Not to be missed are Ty Miller, Stephen Baldwin, Josh Brolin and Yvonne Suhor. Also look for special guests like Cynthia Nixon,Della Reese, David Carradine, Pernell Roberts, Jamie Lynn Bauer, Richard Roundtree, Brian Bonsall and my favorite Bart the Bear.
In a nutshell the show is about the Pony Express and all its trials and tribulations leading up to the Cival War. However with such a large cast the show also deals with all its members lives as well such as Wild Bill, The Kid and Lou (a girl in disguise as a boy to become a member of the Pony Express.)
You'll find gunfights, sasparilla drinking, horses, beautiful country and even romance (yes there is some of that).
Trust me buy it!!!
I sincerly hope that seasons two and three will follow soon.
THE STORY: Set just before the American Civil War, this series presented a highly fictionalized account of the heyday of the Pony Express. Its focus was a group of young Express riders based at the waystation in Sweetwater, Kansas. Running the station was ex-Texas Ranger and all-around eccentric Teaspoon Hunter. The role of cook, housekeeper and mother hen was filled first by Emma and later by Rachel. The riders included the future "Buffalo Bill" Cody and James Butler ("Wild Bill") Hickok, as well as Ike, a mute, Buck, a half-White/half-Kiowa scout and the Kid, a quiet Southerner. Their final member was Lou, a young woman who lived and worked with the riders disguised as a boy. In second season, their group was joined by Noah Dixon.
PACKAGING: The set includes five discs in two regular sized DVD cases and housed in a sort of collector's box snugly fitting the two standard DVD cases.
Sony, if you're listening, hurry up with S2 and 3! I'll be first in the queue to buy!
I hear this is one of the most requested TV to DVD shows out there. And no wonder. It's a beautifully crafted western with engaging characters, gorgeous scenery, sparkling dialogue and scripts, and most of all...heart. This show has a lot of heart.
I was on the edge of my seat every week, sharing the adventures of the Pony Express riders. Moving, funny and even shippy at times, this was just great entertainment with characters you cared about.
Buy it now! You won't be disappointed.
The show looks great, its bright, crisp, and clean! And if you love horses, or westerns, or Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman, you need to own this series!! Its ridiculously good!
Now I'm just hoping and praying that they'll realease seaons 2 and 3 as well!!!!
The lack of bad language and blood was a breath of fresh air. I understand that the bad guy died when he was shot without having to see his insides all over the road. I understand that someone in these situations wouldn't just say, "Oh, drat", but I do so get tired of the expletives all over tv now.
My youngest child and myself have had tons of fun watching this.
The only problem is now waiting for seasons 2 and 3 to come out. Please hurry with them!!!!!
