The good story comes through in this nice episode.
8 February 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Isabel Dent, a homely looking woman, has a piece of land that the Profit brothers, Jess (John Anderson) and Jim (Sandy Kenyon) are keen on getting anyway possible. They have been causing trouble for Isabel even since.

It just so happens that Isabel is expecting to meet an Eastern man, John Jupiter (Peter Whitney), on the morning stage as the two have been corresponding and thinking about getting married. Jupiter, a large man, arrives and immediately is harassed by the Profit brothers. But the strong Jupiter is afraid to fight the brothers because he does not know his own strength and came close to killing a man back east. But it seems the Profit brothers are set on making sure that Isabel and Jupiter never have a life together.

Peter Whitney is perfect as the larger-than-life John Jupiter that is searching for a mate. But there is a concern with the pick of John Anderson as the villain. We all know that the selection of each episode is done sometime after the actual filming of a show but it was kind of odd that the previous episode also featured John Anderson as a villain. So two episode in a row had Mr Anderson cast as the bad guy which does not make for the best decision by producers. But because of the good story this odd occurrence can be quickly overlooked and the episode enjoyed.
