It could have been good...but wasn't.
16 February 2016 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

The basic idea for this episode is pretty good. Unfortunately, the writing just isn't very good and the characters are more like one- dimensional caricatures than real people.

When the show begins, a young lady has taken her fiancé, Henry (David Niven) out west to meet her father. However, she is apprehensive to introduce him as her fiancé because Henry is about as far from a cowboy as she could have chosen. Instead, he's a seemingly wimpy psychiatrist and the dad (Barton MacLane) is less than impressed by him. When he learns the man wants to marry his daughter, he announces(?) that the man who breaks his unbreakable horse can have her (does this make any sense on any planet?!). Being extremely broadly written, Henry thinks the horse is angry because it has some sort of neurosis and works on curing it!

This show was usually exceptional...here, it's just dumb. In fact, it made me cringe as I watched it. Pretty awful.
