    Just watched the pilot and following episode. We loved it! Quality show, pulling off the 1962 time period was fun to see. Loved the kids and the plot. Fun family entertainment!

    Thanks BYUtv!

    I'm so impressed that BYUtv is doing well enough to do a series. They have great programming and they are gradually building a great network. It is national and international and is building viewership as they go. Good for them.

    I hope it does well. I can't wait. I'm so sick of the morally repugnant garbage that's on the big three networks.

    A question for Mr. Swafford... what's the point of spending a million per episode, and then not spending any money on marketing what you have? I am in the film industry and have noticed a trend with BYUtv... they have great content, but have NO idea how to market their content, or how to establish a solid viewership. Most people who come across BYUtv outside of Utah will do it by flipping through channels until they find something good. If it's good, they will set it to record on their DVR. BYUtv needs to do like all the other channels do, do marathons of their shows like Turning Point, American Ride and now Granite Flatts... people will come across it and hopefully find it interesting and then they can establish a viewership. Other networks do this because it works. Marketing should be their number one focus now that they have good content.

    Mountain man, it's not KBYU it's BYUTV two separate channels.

    I'm watching, sounds like what I want to see on television! Looks Fun!

    How do you get a free promo for direct tv when the story is about a kbyu production.
    Unless you need direct tv to wAtch it. Which you don't.
    I think the bigger story is how did the church green light a million dollar per episode BYU tv series.
    With the failure rate of tv series even when the networks have deep pockets for the best actors, writers and directors is high.
    It just seems like a big gamble that maybe a little more prayer should have been given before this was rushed through the approval process.
