Storyline

It seems to be the end of the line for the Jackman clan after their farm is put up for sale to pay back taxes. It's clear they weren't cut out for farming and go off to Paradise, a nearby town. They arrive to find that the position of town Marshal is vacant and family patriarch Nebeneezert takes the job and deputizes his three sons. They soon realize just what they've got themselves into when they see that all of the badges have bullet holes in them. When bank robbers come to town, Lucas helps them keep the peace.

Hitchin' a ride
31 March 2014 | by (Warner Prairie) – See all my reviews

At or near the end of their runs, it seems as though many popular TV series have served as vehicles for giving viewers a taste of possible new shows testing the market. The final episode of the Whirlybirds pitched John Agar as a police detective and his fixed-wing aircraft, in "Four Little Indians." Even Star Trek, which was due to be canceled after only two seasons, at first, had that season-ender revolve around Robert Lansing's and Teri Garr's characters in "Assignment: Earth," another pilot/spin-off that didn't sell. That is my impression of why "Which Way'd They Go?" may have displeased so many fans. They wanted The Rifleman and got something a little different in its place. I had the feeling that I was watching a comedic western, with Lucas and Mark McCain as the guest stars. From that standpoint, I believe that this episode succeeded in what it set out to accomplish. Silly, yeah, but I enjoyed it shamelessly! I have seen a lot worse. Unfortunately, you can't please everyone!
