Did You Know?


Jim Sinclair: It's not just Africa, Son. Everywhere you go there's life and there's death. There's the good and the bad. Sometimes when we lose the ones we love, its hard to understand why. Sometimes in life there are just too many goodbyes - especially for a little boy. I'm afraid we can't always get the things we want and ask for. I wish I could apologize for life, son. But I can't.

A Woman's Perspective
16 December 2012 | by mitchrmpSee all my reviews

In this episode, the Commander and John Henry are kidnapped by a vengeful man who had been arrested when Commander Hayes turned him in for the awful crime of killing lions for their claws. He was out for revenge and was a pretty sick man. Torture and torment followed the group as they made their way across the desert, trying to stay out of view from Jim and Samson who were looking for the group in the plane.

This story was very good. The main evil guy was very evil, and played the part very well. He used awful methods, and even his description of how he would kill Commander Hayes depicts the most evil of men!

Samson had a couple emotional scenes as he faced the fact that the Commander and John Henry just may not come back. Chuck Connors, always playing the role of the "life is tough" kind of guy, delivered a honest and un-sugar coated answer to Samson's questions.
