Bottom Ten
24 August 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This episode is definitely on my bottom ten list. I'm not a wrestling fan, but I still enjoyed the other episode (Joe Kagen's story) much, much more than this one. I am yawningly board watching this. And Harriet Olsen's "comic relief" only serves to isolate me further. She's done a lot of low things in her time, but gambling with the church money was pretty low. I think the episode would have been much better if she had lost it...

If you like wrestling, this one's a good episode for you. But I could do without it. We don't get to see most of the Ingalls' family, nor do we get to see my new favorite character - Almanzo Wilder...
