Diverting, but not very Compelling
25 May 2008 | by (Indianapolis, Indiana) – See all my reviews

Tod and Buz find themselves railroaded into teaching school children in a small, desolate New Mexican community in this pleasant, but unextraordinary episode.

Thomas Gomez's performance as the cantankerous old man who devises the scheme to trap Tod and Buz as well as singlehandedly fighting off the county that wants to bus the children to a city school is pretty much the whole show here. Although the children do manage to be cute without being too precocious and Gomez's outrageously insane plan to 'trap' the two is indeed amusing.

The episode ends with Tod giving a very prolonged speech about the slow extinction of the American small town that is honest and profound, but also a bit strained. Most Route 66 episodes are either heavy drama or light comedy, but this manages to be a mixture of both, which is diverting, but not very compelling.

Grade: B-
