Is this episode really as bad as some of the summaries I've read about it?

I really do like this episode. Ben is actually at the prison, along with Joe and Candy to better the prison. They show Ben good food being prepared, which we later find out the prisoners do not get to eat. They take Ben prisoner because of the way they were treated. Joe breaks in to help rescue his pa, along with Griff. Ben allows Griff to come back to the Ponderosa with them.

I like it too. It introduces Griff, gives us a last chance at seeing Gregory Walcott, we get to see Joe get all macho and shoot a gatling gun, and Ben is actually acting like the leading citizen he was supposed to be (he was on the state prison inspection committee).

I also like this one. Not only do we get to learn more about Candy, we see Griff for the first time. Personally, I that that Griff was an addition to the cast that should have happened much sooner. I wasn't expecting to see Joe on that gun as it seemed like more of a thing Candy might do, but it makes for an exciting scene.
