As the wind blows, 11 May 2013
Author: pfors-647-501497 from United States

Dust Bowl survivors probably winced at episode's best sequence, a howling wind storm so vividly real that it appeared the Universal back lot was about to be swept into the Pacific Ocean. The rest is a modest, somewhat stagy potboiler that depends on plot twists and serviceable performances to keep bubbling. McClure lifts more than his share of the acting load, as usual, but pert Pat Crowley, Lincolnesque character actor Ford Rainey and the young Kiel Martin help out. Martin gets to display some of the roguish swagger that worked well for him in the feature "Trick Baby" and in "Hill Street Blues." Don Quine's less-than-impactful recurring role as Stacey Grainger was nearing its finish; he hadn't made viewers forget Randy Boone, let alone Gary Clarke.
