The Yellow Rose - An Excellent Series
4 September 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is an excellent series. There are generations of viewers who love Westerns. The Yellow Rose was a welcome departure from the type of TV series and programs that were popular in the '80's. The Yellow Rose not only had good stories in a modern day ranch setting, it also presented some excellent famous actors from the 1940's and 1950's in the story lines. Many people I knew in Texas and other states looked forward to this series weekly, including myself. We were so disappointed when the series was canceled. All the main characters were excellent in their roles. If you love Westerns, horses, ranch life, Texas or just love Sam Elliott this series is for you.
