  • A pretty familiar story, but there's some nice scenery and a little bit of slick detective work going on.

    6.5
    A payroll master for a western logging camp is shot at and everyone blames a local hermit.



    It must be great to have a name like "Sky" King when you are a hero with an airplane, it sure makes for some added drama when you get to say "Sky King clear and standing by" over the radio. This episode starts with a car heading over a cliff. The loggers are pretty blood-thirsty, threatening to shoot on sight when they go after the "wild man" who is blamed for the whole affair. Meanwhile, Penny happens across the wild man while out fishing and learns that he is an enormous but kindly man who is only a friend of the forest and the furry animals that need the trees. A pretty classic misunderstanding is set-up, the hermit is the scapegoat of a true criminal who wants to make off with the logging money.



    There's a couple of scene switches where it is really difficult to see how Sky gets from the air to a car and to the air again but the story is fairly straightforward with easy-to-understand characters. Kids can learn a couple of things about long-barrel guns from the early 1800s as well. Entertaining.moreless
