Still the Coward of Bitter Creek?
1 May 2011 | by mitchrmpSee all my reviews

I will give this a ten because I think it's cute. From a woman's prospective, I loved watching Chuck Connors tell the Night Before Christmas (at least the first couple of lines. I could watch the expressions on his face all day! He has always been so tender with children. Children absolutely LOVE him!!! I also loved the "Merry Christmas" with the big, toothy smile, at the end. Very nice!

On another note, have they dropped the coward of Bitter Creek bit by this point? I noticed in the previous episode that they didn't say anything about him being a coward...And in this one, there really wasn't much said except the illusion that he was accused of something he didn't do - that was pretty much it...

We'll see if the coward bit shows up in future episode.

So, if you are looking for episodes that have to do with the Coward of Bitter Creek routine, don't watch this one because you won't find it. But if you want a cute Christmas story with Chuck Connors, watch this one. Nobody dies. McCord doesn't try to kill anyone, though he does do some punching on a couple guys a couple different times...
