    On the Biography Channel, Michael Landon stated that he wasn't into making religious themed shows, but more shows about doing the right thing. As I watched this episode tonight that thought caught me up in a storm. At the start the townsfolk are opening themselves up to the newcomers. Even as the show progresses and the evilness of the brothers comes to light the town goes into the try-to-understand-their-situation mode. After everyone's other cheek is bruised and the Reverend gets an earfull from Charles it becomes apparent that a true threat is in their midst and the congregation comes together to defeat their adversary. The town has done or tried to do the right thing throughout the whole show. To me it was a well written, entertaining, and had a moral thread throughout. Some may call it fluff or whatever, but shows like this are refreshing and give my soul a shot of life.
