A nice change of pace for the series.
19 February 2014 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

"The Family Tree" is a nice change of pace for this normally dramatic and very serious series. For a change, this show is a big comedic--with a clever and funny ending.

Mr. Carver (George Meader) is a man who thinks he knows far more than he knows. So, when Mrs. Carver (Frances Bavier) begins consulting with a genealogist (Hugh Beaumont), he assumes the man is a crook and contacts Captain Braddock. But Braddock cannot find a record on the man and he's done nothing illegal. At this point, you think PERHAPS this will be a first--an episode without an actual crime. However, there's more to this one--and soon Mr. Carver proves to be a very easy mark. Fortunately, Mrs. Carver isn't so easily swayed and, with Braddock's help, they spring a little trap.

This is just one you need to see for yourself. Trust me, it's pretty clever. And, it can be downloaded for free along with many other episodes at archive.org.
