A very weak episode badly directed by Denver Pyle. It stars Gavin McCloud (McHale's Navy, Love Boat) and John Fieldler (The Bob Newhart Show, the voice of Piglet) as a couple of miners who claim to have discovered a huge diamond mine in the desert. Of course the local bankers try to cheat them of their find. But who's fooling who? Admittedly Pyle was given a pretty bad script to work with because this story does not work on several levels. At one point it looks as if its going to be one of those "big cons" pulled off frequently on "Maverick" or "The Rockford Files" but sadly, when you think something else is really going on, it isn't. Yet the bad script is no excuse for Pyle to settle for bad matching shots, poorly framed shots and lethargic actors. Better he stuck to acting.
