Good episode
6 December 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In this episode, we see the three ranchers taken hostage by a group wanting freedom. They want the horses to make good their escape. Besides being held against their will to train horses they catch, Samson is out with a young African boy pretty much on his own. For most of the episode, Samson has no idea anything is even wrong. Samson knows Jim is worried, but Jim covers it up with some sweet talk.

For the viewer who enjoys plenty of action, this one will probably work. Jim throws quite a few punches, though in the end it's a little boy on a run away horse that saves the gang from being shot. A lesson is learned and they are all friends...

Wrapped up a bit too nicely.
