The only time I ever watched Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman was when I was visiting my mother-in-law, who loved it. Something about the description of "wholesome family drama" made it sound boring, like Walker, Texas Ranger or Little House on the Prairie, which she also loved. But Brandon Hardesty of No Small Parts manages to make one story from the series sound particularly interesting as he tells the tale while critiquing it at the same time.
What's most interesting is that Fred Rogers guest-starred in this episode. It was the only time he "acted," meaning he played a character that wasn't himself. He nailed the small part, since the character was close enough to his own personality. In other words, he was typecast. Anyone who was a fan of Mr. Rogers will get a kick out of this deep dive into one unique role. -via Laughing Squid
