Bland episode.
10 April 2019 | by searchanddestroy-1See all my reviews

The first thing I want to tell is that you don't find in this episode Jim West with his usual clothes. He wears a normal cow boy pant and shirt. Maybe for the next and last episode of the show, it will be the same; we'll see. Second, this episode is far from being the best of the series. Every body feels the end of the show. Good scene of a man falling from a cliff, with the camera showing him falling back on rocks. Plus, this is a common western scheme here. No fantasy nor any kind os sci-fi, which was the trade mark of the show. Good stunts from Bob Conrad, as usual. Worst climax of the whole show, at least ONE of the worst.
