And it became even worse!
7 October 2018 | by stellaarwennicolinaSee all my reviews

When I saw Clint Eastwood wouldn't appear in this episode I was shocked. He was almost the only part left over from the original series. Sheb Wooley went out in the fourth season and was replaced by Charles H. Gray. He came back in the seventh season and got fired again together with Eric Fleming, James Murdock, Robert Cabal and Rocky Shahan. So far so good... But why Clint Eastwood aint in this episode???? He, Paul Brinegar and Steve Raines were the only cast members the audience knew. Why did they leave Clint Eastwood out? WHY?
