Needless to say. This 30-m Nute caper starring Veteran character actor Jack Elam As the reluctant head of the clan is in no Way a Texas version of Quot apples virtue in t on constant display. What is on display is an excellent sense of the off hand Deadpan humor of the Lone Star state brilliantly captured by scriptwriter Dale my Haven. He created Iii Sones and is its executive producer. The opening show deals with the family a reaction to the return of a Wheeler who it seems has disappeared some eight months earlier in search of Gold and left his Brood in the lurch. His cheery arrival hailed with a lunge for his Throat by one son is preceded by some wonderful commentary on manhood drinking and a Girlfriend of the 17-year-old who flounces off the Wheeler premises when the oldest boy takes away his brother s six pack of Beer. A a can t Trust a woman who Only wants your Beer a drawls the oldest boy. Quot i did t want to Trust her Quot the kid groans. A i Only wanted to get her drunk Quot dropping out cd school also is discussed by the kid who complains of nightmares about blackboards and Chalk a Quot Man in a dying of White lung Quot the show also contains a wild classic segment involving both a fistfight Between rather and oldest son and the burial of a Duck. It s hard to explain the two in one paragraph but the scene made me laugh until my sides Hurt. The direction is great ditto the entire cast. And the show manages the difficult feat of being Tunny and real simultaneously. So catch it tonight.
