Killing Dad
1 July 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Characters involved: Father and son - John and Johnny Logan.

Main Characters: Hoss and Ben Cartwright. Little Joe and Adam are MIA.

For some odd reason, land tycoon and probably one of the richest men of his time is doing his own cattle drive with Hoss. He's desperate for hands and hires some with questionable reputations. Along comes a young man who seems really nice and all, but he was in prison and now wants to kill his father for putting him there.

The episode was a good one. There's a good lesson about tough love and accepting your family's mistakes and all. The characters were believable.

One thing about having an episode with a lot of character actors is watching several different of our baddies coming together to be bad and good. Every episode is unique, but it's nice to see the actor's character seems to have a lot in common show to show. Good episode.
