I believe this is an episode from season 7
20 October 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Did the writers run out of new ideas or what, I know this is season 9 of the series but with the name changed to "The Men From Shiloh", a new theme song, and new duds for "The Virginian & Trampas" the episodes should be new as well. This episode is from Season 7 "Dark Corridor", some of the character names were changed, but pretty much the same exact story. "Dark Corridor" was better then "Flight to Memory" the acting was much better. Ironically Robert Fuller plays the part of "Ellis" in this one, while his "Laramie" costar John Smith plays the exact same part in "Dark Corridor". Robert Fuller's talent was totally wasted in this episode. I give "Flight to Memory" a 3 or of 10.
