In the show with the tornado coming towards the wagon train, it was quite obvious that someone superimposed a hand drawn, scribbled sketch of a tornado over the finished film. Has to be the worst replica of a tornado in television history! See more »
Sure after the first few minutes of your first episodes the viewer will think Gilligan's Island meets F Troop meets wagon train and he/she would be correct. But this series has does have its charm and thanks to public domain, it can seen and purchased quite cheaply.
Dusty's Trail is about group of hapless settlers from different walks of life who are somehow separated from the rest of their wagon train and have to head to California on their own. The Wagon Master is a lot like the Skipper (he even calls his assistant "Little Pal" and Dusty is of course much like Gilligan and he have a rich couple, a dance hall girl (it's show biz, I guess) and s sweet girl and smart young man.
The show will never make the all time great list, but compared to a lot of shows today, it's nice to watch a clean gentle comedy that is adults and children will enjoy.
My rating 7/10 for Bob Denver fans 9/10
