  • For starters how can you not enjoy watching "The Man in Black", Johnny Cash Guest Star along with his wonderful wife June Carter Cash!?

    Being a huge fan of Johnny Cash, I felt this episode reflected back on Cash's life- going from drug addicted and losing his faith, to becoming friends and eventually married to June Carter who not only helped him quit a deadly drug addiction but also get him to find his faith again even stronger than before.
    The character Cash plays is an ex-con who initially sets out to rob the good folks of Walnut Grove against his wife's wishes (played by his real life wife June) but in the end he realizes there is reward in goodness and instead ends up helping many of the townsfolk while pretending to be a minister. Not only did I find the story's plot educational, but it also had two legends play Guest Stars!!
