This episode was not very popular with many BV fans and I agree with you though I like Leslie Nielsen he always seemed to be the same person in every thing I saw him in. But I have not seem him in everything but never impressed with his acting

I remember it was the only episode where they tried something new and did freeze frames of Heath riding into the ghost town. I found the episode poorly acted and not believable.

Well I disagree about the acting of Lee Majors as I thought it was the most challenging episode he was given and did a good job with a lousy script and the rest of this cast I thought was bad. Just a bad episode which few people seem to like

It was definitely a challenge to make something out of this weird story. Lee Majors did his best to make Heath's reactions believable and normal in bizarro world. This seemed more like an episode of The Twilight Zone.

I can almost here Rod Serling's voiceover in the background, "Picture a man who is just passing through a quiet little town. His only thought is a cool drink of water on this hot day. He doesn't realize that he is about to drink deeply from the fountain of imagination. He is about to enter a world from which there may be no escape. He is not in any real danger except for possibly losing his mind over listening to the inane dialogue spouted by a collection of oddballs."
