No winners - and all over a sack of potatoes.
24 September 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In a rather sad episode we are introduced to two families, the Galloway's and the Scooper's. By the time the episode ends both families will have a plateful of heartache that no one wishes on someone else.

It begins when Leroy Galloway and his son, Jep, catch a 12 year old boy named Peter Scooper with a sack of potatoes. The boy claims that an older man gave him the sack but the Galloway's believe he is lying.

During the brief struggle to get away Pete cut his leg on a barbed-wire fence which will later lead to blood poisoning and finally to the death of the 12 year old. Now an outright feud is going on between the father and son of the Galloway's and the father and last son of the Scooper's. When the credits roll, at the end of this episode, no one is a winner.

A unique type episode that was entertaining, even if unfortunate, from beginning to end. A nice set of actors brings the tragic story to life as we are placed right into a feud where sadness is the only emotion that will rise to the surface. Even with the melancholy story, it provided a nice watch for viewers and hopefully a lesson learned.
