  • The show closes it curtain.

    This was the final episode of The Big Valley before entering its cancellation. Back in the day, TV networks pull the plug on westerns to focus more on modern TV, and as a result, The Big Valley has been canceled after four seasons. I read that another reason for the cancellation was because, despite the show's popularity, it suffered from poor ratings, which led to its unexpected demise. All in all, the episode was good and I liked it. Richard Long, Peter Breck, Lee Majors, Barbara Stanwyck and Napoleon Whiting were the only cast members who appeared on both the show's first and last episodes. Linda Evans never appeared on this episode due to the fact that she wants to spend more time with her husband (who she divorced a few years later). Anyways, I love The Big Valley and will always be one of my all-time favorite shows.
