The Vision

Mark McCain was as important to the show as the Rifleman himself. Let's talk about his sweet nature and sensitivity. Always learning from Lucas, sometimes the hard way, fear of losing his only parent, times he got into trouble, their respect for each other, and how he was portrayed as a motherless kid but had the insight and determination of a disciplined adult.

I had my monthly viewing of the vision last night and noticed something else. Legend has it roswell, new mexico is the home of ufos and space aliens. The magical and mystical dr. Hennekin lives in roswell. Coincidence? I think not.

I watched the show again last night. When lucas was trying to figure out where to get ice, dr. Hennekin seemed confused about whether or not they were in canada.

Come to think of it, Lucas did not tell mark he couldn't have the saddle at all-lucas just said Mark could not have the saddle right then.

When the undersandably upset Lucas literally left Mark in the middle of nowhere, how devastating that could have been for Mark! Mark, who was on the edge of puberty, was confused and upset because his mother "left" him and his adored father, who was literally his whole world, just takes off.

Imagine how Lucas must have panicked when he returned to the camp and found Mark gone!

Hi I’ve been away a long time I think I’m still Markisddg. Love talking about The Vision. I wonder how many more wagon train people got sick and died. That water must have tasted awful and Mark only took a little bit in as he spat it out. The acting was superb. Wildwest told me to come and post so let’s hope I did it right.
