I was fortunate enough to see the private premiere of this episode along with episode 10, "Paintball". Susan Juby was in attendance and her personal comment was that she thought the TV adaptation is funnier then the book. Having read only the first book I can only comment that she may be right. This particular story line will be familiar to everyone that has read the books as the "Bush Party". The series has all the right ingredients to hook viewers and keep them coming back. Good actors, good production value, and lots of humor. People will be drawn by their curiosity as to what quirky adventures the MacLeod family will face each week. People who are fans of the book will appreciate how true to the stories, the producers remained. Think a cross between Malcom in the Middle and Corner Gas. I look forward to its release which should be sometime in late April 2006.
