The slow pace hurt this otherwise nice story
21 January 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

When Heath and Victoria set off to the mountain lodge they run into trouble when their wagon hitch breaks and the wagon falls on Heath. With Heath trapped in the mud and Victoria unable to move the wagon, Victoria has to set off to find help.

But as luck would have it, the man she finds to help is an escaped convict being chased by two bounty hunters. Harry Dixon (Bruce Dern) is a angry man that really had no intention of helping anyone. But with Victoria holding him at gunpoint they make their way to the wagon.

Now we get a 40 minute walk of Victoria and the criminal making their long way to the wagon. And during the walk we get the two talking about their lives, why the criminal was falsely imprisoned and avoiding the two bounty hunters. All this while the camera pans to Heath still in the mud under the wagon after each scene change. --It will come down to Harry Dixon either having to help save Heath's life or be caught by the bounty hunters.

A great guest cast with Dern, L.Q.Jones and Harry Dean Stanton all having a some part in this episode. Not the most exciting show in the lot with the long dialog and slow pace- but was a good watch. Barbara Stanwyck is again excellent in her performance which always makes the show better. We even get to hear a little singing from Lee Majors which I am sure is a treat for some.
