Little House on the Prairie



During a recession, Charles and Mr. Edwards take a job handling highly explosive liquid dynamite along a rough and dangerously winding road. Also on the same job is an experienced black man with a tolerant attitude and a prejudiced young man who refuses to accept his partner.

Through rough detours, bandits, and prejudice, Charles and Mr. Edwards must work hard on the long road home.



  • Charles tells Edwards that he has experience with dynamite, a reference to theSeason 1 episode, “100 Mile Walk.” In this case the explosive is “blasting oil” (nitroglycerin). Its a little odd that the railroad would transport nitroglycerin by wagon in the year this episode takes place. One reason dynamite was invented in 1867 was because so many parts of the country had banned the transportation of blasting oil because it was so unstable.

Originally filmed in 1982, Arthur the King wasn’t able to secure a network-TV berth until April 26, 1985. Malcolm McDowell plays good King Arthur, whose dream of Camelot is endangered by the evil Morgan Le Fay, played by Candice Bergen in her TV-movie debut. That this might have been intended as the pilot for a weekly series is evidenced by the otherwise pointless inclusion of Dyan Cannon, cast as a ditzy 20th- Century tourist who falls through a time warp while roaming around Stonehenge. You’ll want to see Arthur the King if only to find out why minor-player Miro Pfeiffer’s character name is “Undead Knight”.
