Jarrod gets amnesia
22 March 2016 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

This Big Valley story was left a little too much up in the air for my tastes. Especially since Richard Long's mission is to solve the problems in that particular region. Lawyer Jarrod Barkley is acting on behalf of the California Land Commission to settle a dispute between the Matthews family and the neighboring ranchers during a drought when the Matthews's have the only water.

But before he gets there Long sustains a fall from his horse and cracks his head pretty good. After that Long has amnesia and he wanders on to the Matthews place where he's taken in. The family consists of Anne Seymour, her daughter-in-law Sheree North, and her son Duane Chase.

The family are on that land awaiting the return of North's husband, but he's been gone for two years. Sheree does have needs, all kinds of needs.

No real resolution here except for Jarrod Barkley's memory returning for the next episode. But I will say Sheree North does a great acting job. Her's was always an interesting career, she was supposed to be 20th Century Fox sexpot at first, but she showed she had real acting ability and that talented stretched her career considerably.

This episode could have used a little resolution.
