  • Could have been something special but stilted writing and overacting deflated the significance of what was happening.

    The introduction of African Americans to Waltons Mountain is a welcome reprieve from the all white panorama of the show. Sadly dialogue gets in the way of character development. The character of James the boxer is compelling one but some of his dialogue sounds exactly like a writer penning a novel vs. an actual character. The focus on the episode is the evils of boxing and James and some of the situations are too campy. Parts of the episode get out of focus and the direction is terrible. James never has any nuiance and speaks like a preacher who never leaves the pulpit. It doesn't work. In short -- it was a great idea that was poorly executed and that happens. Too bad.
