Our Score
Still best known for playing John-Boy in the long-running TV series The Waltons, Richard Thomas returns to the great outdoors for this plot-heavy melodrama. He's typically decent as the LA cop who arrives in Hope, Montana, to take up the post of interim sheriff that was bequeathed to him, along with a mustang ranch, by his estranged father. However, he's soon struggling to cope with rebellious daughter Hallee Hirsh's disillusion with her new surroundings, the attentions of genial vet Nancy McKeon and the machinations of sinister property developer Joseph Culp. It's undemanding pulp, but entertaining enough.


A widowed Los Angeles police detective inherits a mustang ranch in Montana. He takes over the running of the place, as well as becoming the local sheriff. Meanwhile, as he and his rebellious daughter struggle with the change in lifestyle, he also has to come to terms with his own troubled past. Drama, starring Richard Thomas, Hallee Hirsh and Nancy McKeon.
