Not too good
5 January 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Sorry, but I didn't really care for this episode. I did like the part where Little Joe takes an Indian as a date and gets into some trouble. I also liked the part where they were talking about the forest and trees. The whole story about Mr. Comstock though...actually, I was a bit lost and confused as to what was really going on.

This is a flashback episode where they are remembering back. I'm assuming Joe is younger than his 18 years and was still young enough to be taken to the woodshed since his father declared he'd be punished if he needed punishing.

This episode is a light (one was needed after that last one), and usually I like those but this one just didn't do anything for me!
