l enjoyed this FBI episode.
19 August 2016 | by See all my reviews

This was the first episode of the series to be set in a reservation. The portrayal of the Apache people and culture was excellent, but there was a gross misjudgment in casting the Hispanic actor Alejandro Rey as Joe Cloud when there were Native American actors available. He is very manic in his personality and body language which is not necessary for a role of this type, and his accent is wholly wrong. Ironically, though, because Rey was cast in the role, it wasn't whitewashed in the usual sense of the word. Other that this fault, Ephraim Zimbalist turns in his usual excellent performance as the chief agent, believably struggling to get around in Joe's world and even pursuing him into the desert after he escapes from jail. All in all, a most enjoyable episode with a most satisfactory conclusion.
