The Big Valley was about Victoria, Audra, Nick, Jarrod, and Heath Barkley. They lived on their own ranch in westren days. They dealed with thieves, love, and loss. I started watching the show with my mom when she wouldn\'t let me turn to something I liked. I actually have come to like it more than Bonanza. I liked how it had that they were a family and that they always stuck together. Now I even watch it reguraly. Its a good a show that everybody can watch and more people should watch it. Big Valley is a great show and I\'m glad they made it.
