Introspective episode
9 May 2019 | by ebertipSee all my reviews

Lots of troubles for the drive. So many that Favor and Hay Soos quit. Favor notes that being trail boss is like being in a cage. Wishbone speaks of responsibility and Fuller (played by James Best) illustrates lack thereof. Rowdy gets to be trail boss. The trail drive as a microcosm of life with the titled "toro" symbolic of obstacles to be overcome.
