A Good Episode, And A Tough One To Figure Out
10 October 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Here's another interesting episode in which you're never sure what's going to happen next. Some characters start off as good people and then turn bad, and others are the opposite. Some you can just never figure out.

"Josh Randall" (Steve McQueen, series star) is caught up in the middle of this problem, put at a standstill for most of the story until near the end when he has to make a move and then deal with something even he admits, "boy, I didn't expect that!" Meanwhile, it was good to see Kasey Rogers ("Kate") again. She had been in two episodes the previous year and you can't miss this girl - very pretty with an incredible body. Born "Imogene Rogers," she played in a lot of TV shows for a number of years. The more well-known Gloria Talbot is in the episode, too.

The only bad part of this particular episode was that you never saw how Rogers character and a few others (like the town big-wig who made a big fuss) reacted after all the you-know-what hit the fan. I would have interested to see what they said and did....but I guess there is only so much you can show in a 25-minute story.
