Good Character Study
19 January 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

There is no convenient resolution provided in this episode, the bad guys do bad things and in the end are mostly left to their own devices. However Denver Pyle creates such a despicable man in the form of Pa Ginnis and his brood you sort of feel he gets what he deserves just by having to live with his own disgusting self.

Strother Martin does a great job as the hapless wood carver who is tormented by the Ginnis clan. He's not the sharpest knife in the drawer, but he has a good heart and it's disturbing when he suffers at the hands of the cruel Ginnis louts.

Overall I suppose the theme is back in the day you could find all types, the good, the bad and the somewhere in between. This episode does a good job of showing the interaction between these characters without offering any cheap comfort. The bad guys are still around at the end... you just hope for Dodge's sake they decide to move on!
