McCloud's country aphorisms
5 June 2015 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

This McCloud story has Dennis Weaver on a trip to Russia along with J.D. Cannon. But both have different reasons for being there. McCloud is going along as security for his friend country singing star Hoyt Axton who is a drug addict. Chief Clifford has been drafted by the CIA to break up a heroin smuggling ring operating out of Moscow where Britt Eklund the daughter of a Russian scientist who wants to defect is a drug mule. Keeping an eye on all of this Nehemiah Persoff a very shrewd KGB man who also is looking to break the smuggling ring.

This episode has a far more complex plot than nearly all the other McCloud stories. It's one of my favorites though because of the performance of Nehemiah Persoff. Persoff and Weaver engage in quite a battle of wits as Persoff struggles the way Cannon does to understand McCloud's country aphorisms. We even get to see a bit of Dennis Weaver doing some country pickin' and grinnin' as they used to say on Hee Haw. This happens when McCloud has to prove to the KGB he really is a musician and he obliges nicely.

This one will make you a fan of the marshal from Taos, New Mexico.
