Pleasant, short-lived TV dramedy about Dave, a Chicago salesman who decides to buy a ranch after he has a heart attack. His family, especially his kids (whom he's named after Western actors and characters), aren't too thrilled about his dream of being a cowboy, but they go along with it. In the pilot, Beau Bridges' mother is featured in a dream sequence where his character is about to be hanged. Bridges' father Lloyd, had a reocurring role as a ranch hand. Diane Ladd appeared occasionally as Dave's crusty mother-in-law. The show wasn't in a good time slot; add that to its leisurely pacing and odd characters, and that's probably why it didn't last long.
