Not really a bad episode...but how could they ever sustain this as a series?!
"Calhoun: County Agent" is a very strange idea for a series...and I can see why it was never approved by the networks. It's not that the show was bad...but the idea of the adventures of a county agent sure seem awfully limited!! Plus, when I think of the adventures of a county agent, I cannot help but think of Hank Kimble on "Green Acres"!
The show features the agent (Jackie Cooper) working on an important case. It seems that a blight might be affecting some local trees and many of the locals are calling for the orchard to be burned to protect all the trees in the vicinity. But the agent is hesitant to do this until he has all the evidence and it's obvious he's looking out for the little guy. At the same time, his wife (Barbara Stanwyck) is contemplating leaving him...though this plot seemed completely unnecessary or could have constituted future episodes...had the series been green lit.
The acting is decent, the cast impressive but the basic idea so limiting it boggles my mind that they even considered making this show in the first place. It would have made a decent made for TV film...but not a regular show.
