Nickelodeon (ended 2002)
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
