Able 'Abe' Lincoln


Lucas and Mark are friendly with their neighbor, Able 'Abe' Lincoln. Not only does Able have a remarkable resemblance to the former president, he thinks he is the former president. Everyone in North Fork accepts that Able is a bit touched, but he is a pleasant man who causes no harm to anyone so almost everyone goes along. In the local saloon however, a stranger makes fun of him and Able challenges him to a wrestling match where the man's arm is broken. He's also now determined to get his revenge on the 'president'.

A rather silly plot that turned into a surprisingly nice show.
7 June 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I really was not expecting much out of this episode. I mean a man is saying he is Abraham Lincoln and everyone goes along with the joke- this does not seem like good viewing. But I was pleasantly surprised by the interesting plot and the nice acting by Royal Dano. The combination of the way the script was written and the acting made an otherwise sappy story into an entertaining episode for the entire family.

It all begins at the home of Able "Abe' Lincoln where he asks Lucas if he can go into town with him. It seems that the man, due to psychological scars from the war, believes he really is the President. And instead of embarrassing the nice Mr Lincoln, the entire town of North Fork goes along with the character.

Everything goes well until a stranger taunts Mr Lincoln into a wrestling match where the stranger receives a broken arm. Now the stranger is out to kill (assassinate) Mr Lincoln in the same way the real President was killed.

From a rather silly plot the episode turned out to be an interesting and entertaining show. With excellent acting by Mr Dano this turned into a nice watch.
