Trivia

About ten years later at least part of the story was reused for "Little House on the prairie". In the scene where the Younger brothers get out Isaiah from jail, the wording is nearly identical to the scene where the brothers get out Hoss. See more »

This was the worst show Landon wrote,
24 April 2011 | by zorob1-1See all my reviews

This was a painfully bad episode. I can't begin to say how bad. No one tried to be good. The shamless mugging Landon did on screen when he appeared showed he was bored playing Little Joe. Lorne Greene at least tried to put some effort into the episode. Strother Martin was always one of my favorite character actors and feel he was under used and only there for a paycheck. It was one of the last shows of the 13th season and was produced to just have an episode in the can. Michael Landon was capable of better work than this. I always loved Dan Blocker and thought he was a great under rated actor. A true natural on the screen it was sad this was the last show featuring him in the lead role for an episode.
