Burt Reynolds last show was just too bland.

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
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.
