Reviews

The complete first season of the popular Western series starring Stephen Baldwin. Set in the early days of the Pony Express, the series tells the fictionalised story of a group of young riders for the express in Sweetwater, Kansas, who just happen to include a couple of men who would one day go down in real-life history as two of the west's most notorious names: 'Buffalo Bill' Cody (Stephen Baldwin) and 'Wild Bill' Hickock (Josh Brolin). In charge of the bunch is ex-Texas ranger and all-around eccentric teaspoon hunter (Anthony Zerbe). Episodes comprise: 'The Kid', 'Gunfighter', 'Home of the Brave', 'Speak No Evil', 'Bad Blood', 'Black Ulysses', 'Ten-cent Hero', 'False Volours', 'A Good Day to Die', 'End of Innocence', 'Blind Love', 'The Keepsake', 'Fall From Grace', 'Hard Time', 'Lady For a Night', 'Unfinished Business', 'Decoy', 'Daddy's Girl', 'Bull Dog', 'Matched Pair', 'Man Behind the Badge', 'Then There Was One', 'Gathering Clouds Pt 1' and 'Gathering Clouds Pt 2'.

I brought this series on a whim. I'd never seen it on TV before here in the UK but became aware of it through a friend.

I can honestly say it was worth the price, the characters are interesting, the locations brilliant. For once this is not a wild west that is clean, its dusty, it's hard and perhaps this show is what paved the way for grittier west shows like Deadwood. Having said that it is over 10 years old, which you will notice on occasion but very rarely.
What does speak volumes is the loyal fans who even after 10 years continue to talk, and write about it on the internet. The same thing can not be said for some shows currently being aired.

I recommend buying this show, and if at all possible please buy it new. I like everyone else who has watched it are now praying that season 2 & 3 are released but this will only happen if there is a market.

This is season one of Young Riders. Brilliant. I hadn't seen it it years and it was great to relive, and re-remember the episodes from years ago. The only thing I want to know is where is series 2 and 3? They only did 3 seasons so a 3 part box set of the entire series would have been perfect. Hopefully they will do it soon. Great to see a young Josh Brolin and Stephen Baldwin in action.

This is so fabulous. Realistic, full of interesting characters. Shows how hard life was for the people who lived through those years in the old west. At times, the photography is so wonderful that it is breathtaking - still shots of the landscapes and people could grace an art gallery.

For me, this is the natural "next generation" to follow the incomparable High Chaparral (where are the DVDs for that classic - still bogged down in copyright wrangles I gather - shame on all those involved for keeping it from the viewing public). It has the same spare elegance and unflinching portrayal of some of the less "perfect" aspects of life in those times, especially for those from minorities.

It's not fair to single out individual members of the regular cast - it's a fine ensemble piece of acting....but Anthony Zerbe, as always, is a complete scene stealer - this man is an actor's actor...he is THAT great.

So forget the chores, forget the time and that you have to work the next day - like the best of books, it's hard to put this one down without finishing it. PLEASE can we have the other series too?

I saw this series on the telly when I was about 10 something years old. I fell in love with the riders of the Pony Express and have watched every episode of the 3 seasons. And it hasn't lost anything of the 'magic', now I have rewatched it! I still love it and I want more! Unfortenately only season 1 is available on dvd. And I'm dying for the rest to come like many other fans. But I'm afraid that won't happen any time soon if ever..

The western-themed series is about orphan boys who work for the Pony Express in Sweetwater, managed by Teaspoon. It means that these boys are responsible to deliver letters from Pony Express to Pony Express. A very serious, but also very dangerous business back then. These young boys have to face the danger of robberies, pistol fights, native Americans and every thing else that makes the 'Wild Wild West' wild. But all this danger and adventure makes their friendship stronger.

I love how the characters come to life and how the producers/writers tried to break down stereotypes. To name a few: there's the colourful Teaspoon (Anthony Zerbe) a former Texas Ranger and one of the only survivors of the Battle of the Alamo. He's rough, but he love 'his' boys. There's the Indian Buck, who shows people that he's smart, not the typical Indian who doesn't live in a tipi. Or Lou, who wants to save money for her siblings and pretends to be a boy because girls aren't allowed as Express Riders. I remember Ike McSwain. He is mute and bald, but that doesn't keep him from being an excellent and passionate rider with a strong and noble character. Buck is his best friend, who taught him sign language.

In the second season (so, you won't be ale to see it, but I think it's worth to mention it), Noah Dixon (Don Franklin) joins the Riders.

I dimly remember watching this program after tapping it off ITV's nighttime schedule - which indicates my age. The storyline is simple enough, and very watchable. I'm very happy with my purchase. It is season 1, but there are another 3 seasons broadcast (although I don't remember them).
The downsides to this DVD are no extras (bar "coming soon to DVD" promos) - it would have benefited from a featurette or 'where are they now' item. There is no paper insert to the DVD telling you what the episodes are - if you just hit the play all option then you wouldn't know that they were named as well as numbered.
The quality of the recording differs depending on the scenes, can be grainy in places, but that's part of the retro-charm for me.
A personal plea - when will the other seasons be released on DVD? I want to see how it ends!

I really love this tv series.It was based around the movie,Young Guns to get the younger teenage auidience.
However,its a lot more than just a teen western series.Anthony Zerbe is featured as old Teaspoon the man in charge of the young pony express riders.Josh Brolin plays Hickock and Stephen Baldwin plays Cody.Yes,they are[loosely]based on Wild Bill and Buffalo Bill.
Theres plenty of action and its a western full of hart and honour in the west.Its up there with Alias Smith and Jones and The High Chapparal as a classic series.
