Another political correct story- that was hard to watch
16 November 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

With the other Barkley's on vacation Jarrod has to take the lead in a script written just for Richard Long. Since it was often difficult to get Jarrod in the weekly plot, the writer always had an unique story to be able to get Richard Long as the main characters in the story.

Jarrod is sent to Baker City to approved a sale of Barkley's land to a group of three Mexicans. But when he gets to Baker City there is a cloud of suspicion concerning the men Jarrod was to see.

The town has already lynched a gang of Mexicans because they heard they raped and killed one of the most prominent citizens of the town. But is Jarrod getting the entire story?

The Mexicans may have had nothing to do with the killing but that did not matter to the townsfolk. It will be up to Jarrod to get to the truth of the matter.

Another story that perhaps cause the demise of the series. From prison reform to Confederate hatred and then to a National disrespect of immigrants - this was not the topics for a weekly series in the late 1960's. A difficult watch that was doomed to capture the watching public.
