WAGON TRAIN emulates a fairy tale
8 April 2016 | by See all my reviews

I can see how the previous reviewer (bkoganbing) came down hard on this episode. This is an unusual WAGON TRAIN episode, to say the least, and it won't be to everyone's taste. Far-fetched premise, outrageous costumes, nothing to do with wagons going west, the story like a dark fairy tale....

But you know something? It worked for me. As I watched the episode, it kept reminding me slightly of Tennyson's "The Lady of Shallot" — ethereal, romanticist, eerie. For me, this episode had a gravitas that was impressive, alongside a poetic quality heightened by Horton's narration.

Please don't dismiss this episode. It may work for you, as it did for me.
