False pretenses?
20 July 2016 | by See all my reviews

The first season Lee Majors came to the Barkley household and announced he was Tom Barkley's illegitimate son. That was quite a handful for the other Barkleys to swallow. But accept him they did. Heath's illegitimacy gradually died down as an issue.

Now it comes roaring back in this episode when ne'er do well Buddy Hackett replete with Irish brogue comes with a couple of gunmen, Bruce Dern and John Milford, on his trail. He says he was both Heath's mother's husband and his real father.

This episode belongs to Lee Majors and Hackett as Majors is taken aback and feeling like he's been pulling a con on the Barkleys just as Hackett has done his entire life to get by. He even faked his own death and Heath's mother thought herself a widow until the day she died.

A bit of Barkley history comes to light in this story.
