An out-of-place story for this western series.
12 August 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

We are accustom to have some strange characters make their way through North Fork but this is an episode that takes the cake. It just so happens that a proper lady and a fancy lad comes to the McCain's ranch in rural territory of New Mexico and the word on the street is that the lady is a princess that is running away from her royal duties.

But unlike 'the royals' this woman wants to learn everything about farming so that she can make it on her own. And it appears that all the talk about being a princess might just be hogwash. But when an event happens we will find out if the lady is truly running from her obligations or just scared of being in the spotlight.

The story is not really that bad, it is just difficult to believe that North Fork is the crossroads of the world. The story was out-of-place in this rural western series and was more apt for a contemporary setting. But if you like fantasy then you might just have a good review of this show. But when I watch 'The Rifleman'--- fantasy is not what is expected.
