Goofs

As Dr. Baker is closing up his office (after Ms. Oleson's visit) to go to the Novak farm, a crew or cast member is clearly reflected in the light panel next to the door. Then later in the episode as Dr. Baker is leaving his office once the new doctor has moved in, Mary's bonnet is reflected in the panel. She was just off camera waiting to ride in for the next scene. For a brief moment it looks like she is leaning forward to pick up the reins on the horses. See more »

Guilt
27 June 2013 | by mitchrmpSee all my reviews

This was a wonderful story about guilt a person can carry around. Rather the guilt is founded or unfounded isn't really the issue here. After all, as we watch the events unfold, we can see how Dr. Baker may have found himself in the middle of a malpractice suit, had they existed back then. He hadn't come as Stanley's doctor, but he could have looked for more signs of internal bleeding, though what else he could have done with limited frontier doctor resources I'm not sure.

I think it was kind of cute seeing Dr. Baker as a farmer for a short time. I've watched Kevin Hagan play in many old west shows where he played as a doctor. And though he was older in this show, I think we can still see the old memories of his younger years - before his most famous role...

And of course we can't leave out the fact that we know who's really in charge. Charles again shows Dr. Baker that HE'S in charge and if he wants something done, it WILL get done - Little Joe or not...

I LOVE these old shows! They just don't make them like this anymore!!!
