I never could get into this one
16 November 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This isn't among my favorites...

I've watched this episode a number of times, and I NEVER realized that Peter Whitney was the mountain man! I read another review on here who pointed that out, and I believe they are right, Whitney is skinnier, which may be why I never realized it was Whitney.

Personally, this one was too much for me to stomach. I never did enjoy watching it. There is a good twist at the end, which is probably the highlight of the entire episode.

One thing unforgettable about this episode is Whtieny's laugh...Oh, it sends shivers up my spine every time I hear it!!!
