24 October 2012 | by (Claremont,USA) – See all my reviews

That opening scene may not be too plausible-- why would lawyer Rabb admit so easily to defrauding his victim-- but it is Ted Knight of the Mary Tyler Moore Show playing the slimy slickster Rabb. Otherwise, the entry is unusually uncompromising in its grimness. Looks like the Aspers may have spent too much time alone on the prairie. Except for Will, they're a hardened lot. So when tricky lawyer Rabb turns up dead, the only question is which of the Aspers did it.

Pat O'Malley gets a rare non-humorous role as mean old dad Asper and is convincing as all get- out. That last scene is treated about as unsentimentally as anything similar in the series. Not even Matt registers a discernible emotion. To me, it's one of the offbeat episodes that clearly separates the series from the rest of the six-gun pack.
