Whaooo!!! What a pretty good episode

As far as I have already gone deep inside this TV show, this episode is the best I have watched. It takes place in a circus - I won't repeat the story line - but what I love here is the fact that the evil ones is a couple - man and wife. And the sequence at the end when Lee Marvin fights against the two of them, this scene is very surprising, that changes from usual topics. And I won't speak of the spectacular fire scenes at the end of the episode. This could have been a perfect movie.

A terrific little gem.

I forgot, at the end, just before the struggle between our lead and the evil couple, Marvin grabs the wife as a shield between him and the armed husband.

I loved that.
