Nothing Too Good for a Cowboy

Show Summary

This romantic comedy series, inspired by the true-life memoirs of Richmond P. Hobson, Jr., chronicle the adventures of three of Canada's most colourful modern-day pioneers: Rich Hobson, Panhandle Phillips, and Gloria McIntosh. Aiding them on their ranch are their sometimes inept ranch hands Ed, his younger sister Kit and Tommy who has a crush on Kit. Set in the rugged wilderness of northern British Columbia in 1940, the series blends romance, comedy and action-adventure to put a unique, contemporary spin on the traditional Western.

The characters of Rich, Gloria and Pan are based on their real-life counterparts and this series is based on the memoirs that Rich himself wrote. The three books are Grass Beyond The Mountains, Nothing Too Good for a Cowboy, and The Rancher Takes a Wife, published in the 1950s.

The series was filmed entirely on location in Northern British Columbia, Canada.

  • As a TV adaptation of a book about three real-life mid century Canadian Western Ranchers, it is a pleasant hour in my re-run day...

    8.0
    ...and I bless my DVR every chance I get!

    It never took itself too seriously which is good because that would have made it a disaster.

    Yannick Bisson and Ted Atherton are fun and play off each other very well, as they did later in "Sue Thomas: F.B.Eye." Each of them make for some very entertaining comic moments.

    Sarah Chalke, who has apparently been a hit in Scrubs (I don't watch it), seems miscast somehow. There is very little chemistry between her character and that of her TV husband and you have to be about DEAD not to have chemistry with Yannick Bisson! However, she does have some very sharp comic moments of her own in this character.

    I am happy to add "Cowboy" to my collection of "Oldies" recordings, and enjoy watching the Pitt Meadows scenery before it went completely Hollywood!moreless
