"Into the West" Article by Nadine 6/10/05

Great news for TV fans! Just as we were beginning to sink into the rerun/reality  quicksand, TNT throws us a very strong, very exciting rope. Beginning tonight, the mini-series “Into The West” begins airing on TNT. It stars a cadre of our TV favorites including Keri Russell, Christian Kane, Josh Brolin, Rachel Leigh Cook, Craig Sheffer, and Skeet Ulrich. In addition, big-screen faves Matthew Modine, Sean Astin, Keith Carradine, Gary Busey and Judge Reinhold are also featured. Perhaps the biggest name involved is someone who is not even on the screen. That would be Steven Spielberg, who is executive producer of the project.

“Into The West” is an epic saga which spans 65 years (1825-1890). It is the story of the westward movement of the first American settlers and how it impacted not only the settlers themselves but also the Native Americans. The viewer sees the evolution of the nation through the eyes of two families. One is the Wheelers, a white West Virginia pioneer family moving westward in a bid to grasp the American dream, the other is a Native American family trying to hold on to their land, culture and everything else that they hold dear. Inevitably, the two families clash. They also intermix.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, “Into The West” is TV “worth watching” that illustrates “... the conflict between the native peoples and white settlers as a culture clash without reducing it to a simplistic good-vs.-evil tale”. Enriching the overall story, is the inclusion of true to life events such as the Gold Rush and the Battle of Wounded Knee.

"General Hospital" fans may be interested in the fan that Tyler Christopher (Nikolas) will be appearing in the series as well.

You will have three chances each weekend to watch each episode; each will air on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday nights. Three nights in a row of Tyler, Christian, Skeet…!!! Bear in mind they will debut in different episodes. This is the television event of the summer. Do not miss it!!!
