5/26/61: Trap at Cordova"
22 April 2015 | by (N Syracuse NY) – See all my reviews

This is another small town episode. Thomas Gomez returns, playing basically the same character he did in "Lance of Straw" but now he's Mexican rather than Cajun. He's the same dispenser of home-spun philosophy but more active in the story. He's the leader of a town that has been losing population and has thus lost their school. Their children will now have to be bused to school in a larger town and mixed with kids from different backgrounds. He sends the bus away and sets up a trap on the highway involving a fake accident that allows him, to quiz people who stop regarding how well they have been educated. Tod passes the test and is arrested under an ordinance Gomez invents and sentenced to become the kid's new school teacher.

The boys convert from angry victims to sympathetic supporters too fast and Tod's speech to the local school board is a little too pat but it's a charming episode nonetheless with no "bad guys" such as those in the previous two episodes. Couldn't they have come up with a more poetic title?
