Broedy's Stories

"My love for The Young Riders began and ended with Kid & Lou, with a dash of Jimmy. I started the Kid & Lou Shrine way back when (1997 – oh my!), where some of these stories were originally posted. Thanks to the release of the season one DVDs I was able to revisit a show
which has endured all these years, and remains one of my all time favourites."
