Graphic depiction of animal cruelty unseen since "The Misfits"
17 May 2010 | by See all my reviews

It's a good episode, but do not allow small children to watch, or any adult who loves animals. Even though, intellectually, you know the animal wasn't tortured as depicted, it is still incredibly painful to watch.

A brutal man, and his gentler brother, are at the heart of this story. The horrid brother is desperate to sell horses to the Cavalry, and has no compunction about torturing animals to do so.

It's very Cain and Abel in a way, and has a good lesson to learn.

But, if you love horses, as I do, it's painful to watch.

Of course, if you enjoy today's R-rated bloodfests, with limbs going flying and everyone drenched in fake blood, this won't disturb you at all. Which is, honestly, pitiable.
