Caitlin's Way

Show Summary

Caitlin Seeger is a tough, streetwise orphan from Philadelphia, who thumbs her nose at authority until a run-in with the law forces her to make a pretty tough choice: do some time in juvenile hall or move out to Montana to live with her distant cousins. Even though she doesn't always make the best decisions, this one's a no-brainer. Luckily, her cousins have a son her age and she finds a trusted companion- a horse named Bandit who's even wilder than she is. Learning to live together and respect each other's differences is no easy task for Caitlin and her new family, but her friends, her strong personality and her love of photography help her make it through. Life in Montana may be different than life in the city, but it's definitely an adventure!
Character Guide: Caitlin Seeger: Deep down, 14-year-old Caitlin Seeger is a really good kid, but years of growing up in a foster home and protecting herself from early disappointments have made her hard-nosed, defensive and independent. A new start in rural Montana with her distant cousins might be the remedy for her years of hard knocks, but the adjustment is going to take time. Caitlin may act a little tough sometimes, but hey, that's just her way. Griffen Lowe: Griffen is Caitlin's 14-year-old cousin who has a pretty difficult time sharing his home and family with his rebellious relative. Griffen is the uptight good kid to Caitlyn's carefree mischievous kid. An over achiever, Griffen's pretty popular and even started his own rock band--but he still catches a lot of flak from Caitlyn for being too concerned about his future. Though they're very different and they're often at each other's throats, Griffen and Caitlyn learn to trust each other and actually end up becoming close friends. Dori Lowe: Dori Lowe is a 38-year-old veterinarian and the person most responsible for saving Caitlin from her difficult life in Philadelphia. Of the Lowes, Dori is Caitlin's closest relative, so she believes it's her duty to step in and help. Dori was a city girl who traded skyscrapers for wildlife once too, so she can identify with Caitlyn and becomes a truly positive influence on her cousin's life. Jim Lowe: Jim is a man of fairness and discipline. As the local sheriff and Caitlin's new father figure, Jim's got a double-shot of trouble getting on Caitlin's good side- she doesn't exactly excel at dealing with authority! But he's a decent and understanding guy, so chances are, he and Caitlin will eventually grow to appreciate each other-and maybe learn a few things about themselves along the way. Bandit: Saving someone's life is a sure-fire way to make a new friend. When Bandit, a wild buckskin stallion, saves Caitlin from a rabid wolf, he gains a friend for life. Following their extraordinary introduction, Bandit chooses to stay at the Lowe ranch rather than return to the wilds of High River Canyon. Now he's Caitlin's trusted companion, and he's perfect for the job--he'll never share her secrets, and he's a great listener too! Current Schedule: As of April 2008, the show airs repeats at 6AM each morning on The-N.moreless

  • One of Teennick's Most Underrated Series

    Caitlin's Way is one of the best series that I have seen on Teennick/Nickelodeon. It is one of the most underrated series as well. The show focuses on Caitlin, a troubled orphaned teen who moves from Philadelphia to Montana to live with relatives that she never knew. Most people complained about the setting, but I disagree. Yes. It could have taken place at another city, town, or suburb. This show was filmed in Canada, at a ranch. The setting is beautiful and shows the wonderful parts of nature. Not many shows these days takes place or filmed at a ranch. The characters are diverse, not annoying,. Caitlin is the tough girl--yet, she likes to ride horses; Griffin (her cousin) is a know-it-all who wants to be cool; her aunt and uncle have interesting jobs and are caring parents and guardians to Caitlin. The soundtrack is perfect, great morals, witty jokes, and enjoyable plots. Caitlin's Way is Nickelodeon's/Teennick's greatest series of all-time.moreless
  • Underrated

    What do you call a great show at its time that did not get a huge following behind it? You call it Caitlin's Way.

    Caitlin's Way was an influential show that taught that you can definitely make it over adversity despite what obstacles life can throw at you. Caitlin was a troubled child on the outside but internally had emotional issues many were not aware of. She needed some kind of outlet to channel her energy through. The only thing I do not like is the setting. It is drop dead gorgeous but so barren would be much better in a suburbs or something. The acting was pretty good as was the writing. This was at a time when Nick would show children television shows that were fun for adults, teens, and children and not this corny childish stuff that is on nowadays nobody can learn from or relate to.moreless

  • Used to be my favorite show

    To tell you the truth, I don't remember much about this show. It was so long ago and a lot has happened since then. For my sister and I, this show was our favorite. We watched every episode since it first premiered. We loved the horses! Especially Caitlin's. I loved how Bandit saved Caitlin from a wolf in the first season. It was really cool. I guess the biggest thrill for us was how Caitlin never seemes to do what was expected or told of her. She always did whatever she wanted to do, when she wanted to do it. Her photography was also pretty cool. I guess that's why I like photography now. It was a good show, but it also had some bad points. But then again, what show doesn't?moreless
