Despite some excellent writing, bad casting sinks this episode.

Buz and Tod are still way off the beaten trail in Orgeon (where route 66 does NOT go) and walk into the middle of a fight between Tony (Johnny Seven) and the young Emerson boy (Steven Bolster) who didn't like the way Tony was eying his sister Karen (Joey Heatherton in her first TV role).

The head of the Emerson clan is played by E.G. Marshall. Because his dad was a strict disciplinarian, he's let his kids run wild. In gratitude for the boy's help and because he needs help harvesting the crop, he hires them on to help. As time goes by, Buz and Tod see what a dysfunctional family the Emersons are, which leads to death, drinking and a lot of fights.

The producers must have spent all their money getting E.G. Marshall, because nobody else is convincing in their roles. Not for a second is Steven Bolster believable as the tormented son who has turned to booze (the rest of his career he would spend doing soaps). Johnny Seven also is unable to create a real character as Tony (the fact he was 34 at the time and his love interest, Joey Heatherton was 16 doesn't help). And for some reason ALL of Joey Heatherton's dialogue has been obviously dubbed in post, making for a huge distraction. From what I can see though, it's not like any great performance was lost.

Buzz and Todd don't get a lot of scenes in this one, but when they do, they are effective, telling Mr. Emmerson about their own fathers and how they turned out the way they did.
