Keep in mind, the avatar when that was written,
was the Rifleman cover of TV Guide.
I recently did the change, just for comedic effect.... just for you!

The first being "Mark's Rifle", mostly for its two major discrepancies/inconsistencies, which inadvertently end up mocking the series first two landmark episodes: Mark says that 1. - he never shot a rifle before (and yet he says that he is able to shoot his pa's rifle in "The Sharpshooter"!!! making it clear that his pa taught him to shoot way before Marty ever got into the picture), and 2. - he admires Marty for being not much older than himself and yet is "all on his own... able to do what he wants, able to take care of himself, and go where he wants" (but he was already doing all this in "Home Ranch" at age 10 !!!! - as well as throughout the first season +, and again in "The Wyoming Story" at age 12 !!! - not to mention sternly insisting on taking care of his pa when he got shot down in "The Marshal" and other times throughout the series). It's as if this one mediocre storyline strives to wipe out in one fell swoop the series two shining foundation episodes, which all the others are supposed to be based on. (Right up there with trying to change the age Mark was when his ma died - What?!). Go figure. :roll: ... and the second, "Hostages to Fortune", which while I do like the characters, and the end's pretty ok, the storyline just kinda bugs me in general. (sigh) :dontknow:

I disliked it as well, but mostly because it was so unbelievable..
This guy roams around, alone, blind, looking for someone?
Seriously? :roll:

Now I know challenged people find ways of getting around things,
but some things are just not too likely to happen.
Like wandering around in the wilderness..
Or being able to tell with great accuracy what kind of person is walking
down the street..
Or any of the other super human things Fay did..
