Totally bizarre
17 October 2016 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

I'm in agreement with another reviewer, this Big Valley episode has to be the craziest ever done on the show.

Lee Majors rides into a ghost town inhabited by five escapees from a loony bin led by Leslie Nielsen. Other include Lorri Scott, John Carradine, Robert Donner, and Diana Ewing.

They're like little kids playing grownup dressup games. They invent little theatrical plays for their own amusement and the occasional passing stranger like Heath Barkley better play along or else.

This episode is a contest in overacting. Poor Lee Majors just stands by in awe of it all. John Carradine when he gets a part like this and he got many of them goes to town. But Leslie Nielsen years before he became Frank Drebbin is just feasting on the furniture.

Some my like it, normally I would rate it higher, but it was just too weird for my taste.
