One of the best episodes...
23 February 2007 | by (Santa Rosa, California, USA) – See all my reviews

This episode is interesting from an historical point of view; the murderous family, the Bleecks, are obviously intended to be the Benders, the infamous predatory family who preyed on travelers in 1870s Kansas. The m.o. is the same in this episode--unwary men are lured into relaxing at the B's dinner table, which is backed by a canvas tarp, and at some point the father bashes them in the skull with a hammer. The victim's belongings are ransacked and the body is hidden. Historically, when they were discovered, the family disappeared. Rumor has it that they were "disappeared" by a mob who didn't want to wait for justice, but in the Big Valley universe they reappeared as "The Bleecks" and own an inn where two of the Barkley brothers visit. Good episode, great sixties TV.
