One of the best hours of TV I have ever seen
29 April 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I caught this today on TV Land (possibly the same day as the first reviewer), & it was quite a gripping episode. When the story brought up the twins, I wondered if they were heading toward a certain Biblical story, which they did. But there's a real surprise waiting for you even after the apparent end of the story, so stay tuned all the way to the end.

This episode relies heavily on Biblical references at key points - including the preaching of the Sermon on the Mount, which provides the basis for both the title, and setting up Ben Cartwright's resolution to the custody battle between the feuding families.

This is the type of show that was seen 40 to 45 years ago, but rarely is any more. And TV is poorer for it.
