Deliverance meets Doc Hollywood
18 March 2019 | by mn8335See all my reviews

This episode all the stereotypes and ironies of a black fish out of water in a shallow white pond. I like the plot that humanizes Benton and shows more facets of his personality, but the point could've been made without banjos and harmonicas. By far one of the worst concepts the show has to offer.
