A feature length episode of The Big Valley was on channel 5 on Sunday afternoon. Though I was expecting it (It's better than nothing), it still disappointed me when they, as has been done on Channel 5 before, clued two episodes together. For half an hour we watched as Victoria and her family were concerned about the kidnapping of her son Nick, then suddenly she and her daughter are visiting a relative with no concern about Nick's disappearence. It spoils it for me. If they were going to show TBV, why not show either a single episode or two episodes back to back.
I was also disappointed that it wasn't the episode's advertised. I was expecting an early episode where Lee Major's Heath turned up at the ranch to claim his inheritence of his step mother Victoria, but that wasn't what we got.
