Memorable Episode
13 April 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Heath gets himself into hot water and big brother Nick tries to bail him out.

The acting of the man who plays the sadistic prison dude is masterful and Peter Breck is excellent as usual.

Although some of these episodes may look a bit 'corny' today, back in circa 1966, baby boomer boys like me took this stuff very seriously.

The Barkley brothers really filled a void in my life and i will be forever indebted to this amazing show for showing what the love of a dedicated family member means in life.

The chemistry between Majors and Breck was great and this episode is a baby-boomer 'keeper'
