Shock-surprise! Background music attains near greatness!
Bruce Boxleitner, the heroic captain of Babylon 5, leaves behind the realm of science fiction to play a more down-to-earth roll... running a cattle ranch with troubled institutionalized teens. Horses, cows, fields of fertilizer -- the works! Bruce Boxleitner does a believable job being the head huncho of HOPE RANCH. Credit to him.
Want more? HOPE RANCH boasts a whole lot of beef of a different nature... beefcake. A goodly amount of beefy eye candy for all you female viewers to enjoy. There is plenty for all.
Last but most noteworthy, HOPE RANCH contains a surprisingly good background score. At times there are echoes of Maximus's Germania-Spanish ride from the majestic GLADIATOR score. Yes, it is that good. Much credit must go to Bruce Lynch for the interesting background score he gave to HOPE RANCH.
