So I did a quick zip-around the CharredHer Cable lineup this morning and caught a small snatch of Wagon Train shortly after . I didn’t stick around to see it all—you wouldn’t believe how fast the dirty dishes stack up ‘round this jernt—but I did glimpse Robert Fuller and Sterling Hayden having a conversation while chowing down on some victuals…so I’m guessing this episode was “The Les Rand Story” from October 16, 1957 (the fifth episode of the show’s debut season).
This means, of course, that the Leave it to Beaver junta is now smashed, and that maybe I can finally watch Run for Your Life this afternoon at , weather permitting.
Our long national nightmare is over. Thanks to all the TDOY readers who offered support in this time of crisis.
[Update: Shazbot! RTN pulled a fast one and rolled out another Beaver rerun a few minutes ago. I'm never gonna get to see this show!]
