Honestly!
16 December 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I just love all these episodes. I thought they were very well done...The drama was excellent. It's interesting to note just how much power Shane had on the farm. He made some of the decisions that Tom should have made, and Tom didn't say a thing about it...such as giving Ryker back his calf. In all rights, Tom could have refused to let him do it...but Shane had some sort of pull with the family. What was it that was said? Shane's pretty tight with the family...Yep...

I really like Ryker's character. He's tough, but honest. It shocks me every time I watch this episode the way Ryker just comes in, picks up the shovel, and starts undamming the creek...It really shows that though he hates sod-busters...he respects honesty. I think that deep down he had a lot of respect for Shane as well...

Like I said, another excellent episode.
