I really dig this episode. Korby Kyles is accused of a murder and Jarrod is called upon to take his place.

The Kyles are the never-do-well types of the Valley who even take to stealing coins from Jarrod's saddlebag: a Kyle's brother 'cleverly' hid them were Mr. Barkley figured: in the rim of his hat!...

The acting is wonderful. There is a scene where Korby is jail and says "Why, thank-you, Jarrod" to which our respectable Mr. Barkley replies "Don't you EVER call me Jarrod!" I'm not going into details here, but this is the type of episode which made this show a baby boomer classic: it's just wonderful, well-written & well-acted entertainment.

An interesting footnote I must include somewhere - so why not here?

Lee Majors was adopted by an aunt and uncle and as a young man had a lot of anger himself: it is safe to say that there was a LOT of Lee in his playing of Heath - and Heath is the most beloved of all the characters. Perhaps the general public could feel empathy for his character.

I know i did!!!!
