Episode Guide

So what'd you think of last night's show?

Here I'll write reviews of each episode of my favorite show. If the show has been on for a while, I might also include annotated descriptions of past episodes on this page.

Here's an example of a format I might use for my show reviews.

Caitlin's Way: Season 1 Episode Descriptions

Stray (One-hour Special)
A resistant Caitlin arrives at her new home in rustic Montana and is welcomed by Dori and Jim Lowe and their son Griffen. In an attempt to help Caitlin fit into her new, outback environment, Griffen reluctantly agrees to take Caitlin on a biking excursion with his friends. But when a bike challenge in the rocky hills lands her face to face with a ferocious wolf, Caitlin stands to lose more than her tough girl reputation. Unexpectedly, a skittish, semi-wild horse (Caitlin later names Bandit) bravely comes to her rescue and the two become fast friends. Their relationship is threatened, however, when a pair of bumbling horse thieves (played by Andy Dick and Dave Thomas) plot to steal Bandit, and Caitlin's "trust no one, love no one" attitude is quickly proven right...or is it?
