What little I've seen of the old Lone Ranger TV shows and the movie that came out when I was a kid in 1981, I like the Lone Ranger. I simply have never heard any of the radio shows. I can deal with them being geared towards the family and not just adults, but as long as we're not dealing with any singing cowboys, I'll be OK.
And, yea, I'm a Depp fan, but I heard he's totally taken this movie and turned it on its head. May be waiting for that one to come on cable.
