Burt Reynolds last show was just too bland.

5/10

This episode does not have the usual flare that we are accustom to in recent shows. It is a nice story but nothing really stands out making the program memorable nor a show that you would want to watch again. The script seemed almost bland compared to other shows in the seasons selection.

Bert Clum (Jacques Aubuchon) is a cad of a father and husband that treats his wife and son more like animals and human beings. They have been camping outside Dodge and nearly all their supplies have ran out. When some settlers camp near them, Bert gets an idea when he see that the young couple, known as the Fishers, have a small baby. He sneaks into their camp and steals the baby.

For some reason, that is not really clear in the show, he thinks that having a baby will help him rob the Dodge Bank. The only reason that I can come up with is that they might not shoot at him when fleeing the scene. But he has an old wagon and an old horse so the baby would not be real protection.

Anyway, Bert gets friendly with banker Botkins when his son set to the back of the bank. With people distracted, Bert is going to take the money in the open safe. It seems all goes as plan till one of the family members refuses to be about of something so sinister.

The episode was really not bad but it just seemed to clean. There was a side-plot when the Fishers believe the baby was stolen by Indians and now blame Quint because he is a half-breed. That side-plot has been used so many times it seemed old. The acting was fine but it was the script that lead this to just an average type show.

NOTE- Last episode that features Burt Reynolds as Quint.
