  • Knock-out Episode!

    This is one of my favorite episodes because of the stoyline, action, and humor with Harriet and Nels Oleson.
    Plus, how can you help but love Milo? Besides the fact that he's the veteran and the underdog, you just can't help but route for him because of how loving towards and focused on his wife he is until the end, when he is reunited with her through death. What a man! It's great to see both Jimmy Hart and brutish Hans Mueller get their come-uppance, too.

    Note: love the scene when Harriet gets so uncontrollably excited (due to the fact that she has wagered all her money on this fight) that she accidentally knocks out Nels!
