Pre-eclampsia and North Fork
28 December 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

First of all, I found the beginning of this episode very interesting. Deputy Lordan declares that Sam Buckhart is in North Fork and won't be back for another week. (North Fork is, of course, the name of the town in "The Rifleman.") Then when Sam comes in the office, he states he just delivered three prisoners. That leads me to believe that these prisoners were the three he arrested in "The Indian" episode on "The Rifleman." I think that's neat, but I wonder what the chances were of people picking that up back in 1959? Maybe they did...

Second, I found the "Pregnancy poison" interesting. Often I wonder what they did back then for this condition. I figured that's why they had such a high mortality rate in women giving birth - they developed eclampsia and died. So when Buckhart referred to it I started wondering...were they aware of this condition back then? Did they know how to treat it? I honestly don't know the answer.

I loved the ending on this. I loved Buckhart's final quote: "Truth can sometimes be stranger than storybooks."
