Protection Racket

7/10
Author: bkoganbing from Buffalo, New York
11 February 2016

While the Barkley men are busy trying to find a gang of marauders who are using the old protection racket scheme, Linda Evans gets her life saved from a stampede by a handsome stranger of southern background. The stranger is played by Sean Garrison who is romancing the Barkley daughter to gain information. But these things especially on the big screen and small do sometimes take an unexpected course.

Garrison gives a nice performance as the troubled man from Dixie who along with his compatriots is giving a little payback for General Sherman's war of pillage in the Deep South. This episode belongs to Linda Evans who also does well here.

Audra falls for a young cowboy that has other intentions

7/10
Author: kfo9494 from United States
23 January 2013

The episode begins when Audra is watching some cowboys round up some wild horses. When the horses stampede toward Audra, a man named Lloyd Gardner saves her life. Audra is smitten with the young Lloyd and the viewer can tell that Lloyd returns the look.

But there is something sinister going on around Stockton. Farmers are being harassed for protection money from bandits. The farmers have to pay protection money or face their farms burning to the ground. And it just happens that the arrival of the bandits happened just about the same time as Lloyd made an appearance on the scene.

It will not be long before the Barkley boys suspect the worse. But Audra will be harder to convince when she goes out to see Lloyd to make sure about all the talk. The ride Audra makes may be her last ride of the show.

Linda Evans is a looker in this episode with her flawless features and beautiful looks. However even with the good eye-candy plus the fine acting from the guest cast- this show was slow in developing. The plot was known real early in the show and the rest of the time was getting us viewers to the final scenes. But with that said it still was a good watch for viewers.

PS- One nice thing is to see Buck Taylor before he joined the cast of 'Gunsmoke' as Newly.

A Good Episode

7/10
Author: summerfields from United States

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

Surely, I must be one of the world's greatest fans of this wonderful show...and I have Peter Breck's e-mail framed on my wall to prove it!...but seriously, I am a devoted fan to this upright and "morally correct" themed show: it's a Western Soap, granted - with perhaps more talk than action at times - but this ain't one of those times!

In this installment, the performer who steals the show is the handsome, hirsute Sean Garrison, who plays the tortured outlaw Lloyd: with his looks, voice and talent, he should have soared in showbiz.

The plot is not going to be mentioned a'la spoilers: (a rather wild group of hoods terrify Stockton)....but the scene with the wild horses bolting towards Audra and she being "saved" by Sean is great.

The acting of Virginia Christine (Mrs. Olsen of Folger's Coffee fame) is excellent as the unfortunate widowed neighbor of the Barkley clan.

There is a little romance for Audra and a little action for the Barkley brothers: a good - not great - episode.
