  • The worst episode of the series. Looks like it was meant as a potential pilot for a new series.

    This horrible episode along with the bad series finale, "Old Tony", shows that this extremely good series had lost its focus, looking tired and ready to go. The very good character actor, Peter Whitney, plays the head of the Jackman brothers who are about to lose their home. The rest of the episode is just a silly, contrived Mess! Chuck Connors as Lucas McCain has a somewhat small role, leading to the above conclusion at this being a potential pilot series.The final episode,"Old Tony" is almost as bad. It is a shame that this great western went out with a whimper instead of a bang.
