For Pernell Roberts Fans
4 June 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This episode centers around oldest son, Adam (Pernell Roberts) and his relationship with local widow, Laura Drayton (Kathie Browne - who was married to Darren McGaven) who he is sweet on. The tension builds when Laura hires Ward Bannister (Peter Breck) as her ranch manager. For fans of Roberts, who exited the series early, this was a decent episode. Horse (soap) opera at it best. I always found Roberts to be an interesting character on the show, the only one of the Cartright boys who appeared to have the same brooding nature of his pa, Ben. They even looked alike. Roberts, too, could be menacing at times, like Ben, which added an interesting dimension to his character. Sure, Hoss could get ugly, but there was something in Adam's dark features that reflected the same sort of determined empire-building ruggedness that was Ben Cartright. Browne was feature as Laura Dyaton in six episodes. She was a solid performer. Cute as a button.
