Story was long and the episode lacked action

This offering did not seem to have the same flare as many other episodes as it dealt with anthrax cattle scare in a herd belonging to a visiting Mexican cowboy that is an old friend of the Barkleys. In fact this show that started with much hope had lost most interest by the time we got to the middle of the show.

Martin Landau plays, Mariano Montoya, a Mexican rancher that brings his cattle to Stockton to sell. Mariano is an old friend of the Barkleys since his mother had cleaned their house many years ago. The Barkley's kind of helped him get started with a few cows and now he has a chance to make money by selling the cattle.

But it will be difficult and put a strain on relationships when the cattle disease 'anthrax' is found in the herd. The only remedy for a herd with anthrax is to kill the herd so that it will not spread to other ranchers in the area. This will place Mariano Montoya back to where he was many years ago.

But with Eugene attending college, he advises that his professor has just been given an serum to cure anthrax. Eugene, in his largest role on the series, returns to college to get the professor. Will Eugene get back with the professor before the killing of the cattle begins?

Even with the fine acting by Landau and the regular cast, the story was lacking in excitement and interest. The story got long as we were placed in-between the Mexican trying to make a name for himself and the Barkleys not wanting their cattle diseased. Not one of the better shows from an otherwise excellent Season one.
