The Truth About Love
25 February 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Johnny Johnson (whom we met in an earlier episode totaled "The Love of Johnny Johnson") has an argument with his father. The argument gets pretty heated, and he misunderstands his father saying that he could just leave home and make it on his own. Of course, that's not what was meant but Johnny takes it to heart. He asks Mr. Edwards for a job. Mr. Edward doesn't only refuse him a job and tell him to go back home where he belonged, but he refused to take Johnny to Mankato.

Somehow, he ended up taking Johnny to Mankato. While there, Johnny meets a saloon girl named Miss Mimi. She agrees to help Mr. Edwards in a scam to convince Johnny to go home, but it backfires. Before we know it, she has Johnny doing anything she wants him to do. Mr. Edwards decides to teach her - and Johnny - a lesson about how to treat mankind.

This is another light-hearted episode. There's nothing earth-shattering or anything worth shedding tears over. Maybe we should cry that Mr. Edwards lost his hard-earned money? At any rate, even the lighter episodes are worth watching. Johnny Johnson is a simple person who has big dreams like many of us. The lesson is a good one: the real world is nothing like the one we dream up in our head.

Happy watching!
