scraping the bottom of the barrel, 11 June 2013
Author: grizzledgeezer from United States

"...and the series ends, not with a bang, but with a whimper." This pointless and plot less episode seems to be a mishmash (the crossword-puzzle term is "olio") of story ideas that couldn't be worked into other episodes.

There are two old codgers who fight -- for no obvious reason. Mark and a girl search for arrow heads -- for no obvious reason. Mark sings "Greenfleeves" -- /for/ an obvious reason, that of promoting Johnny Crawford's singing career. The show ends with Mark and the girl getting caught in quicksand -- for no obvious reason, other than that there's ten minutes of air time to fill up.

How low has a series sunk when it has to borrow from "Lassie"?

Shows are not always broadcast in the order filmed. The producers could have chose a far-better episode -- such as "Incident at Line Shack Six" -- to end the series.

If you're a classical listener -- Yes, Stefan Schnabel's father is Artur.
