This has a very simple, direct plot and not much of a twist about a form of time travel, and it's as much fantasy as sci-fi, with no explanation for why this happened, but I always liked this one, for Cliff Robertson's performance and for the turns the story does take, few as they are.
BoG's Score: 7 out of 10 ; Buzzfeed ranked it #75 out of 156 episodes:
It’s a quintessential time travel tale — pioneer man leaves the trail and stumbles into the next century, is baffled by cars, baffles others with his antiquated attire — with a young child’s worsening illness providing just high enough stakes to inject some tension. It’s good! It’s fine. The fact that the gun the pioneer leaves behind when he goes back to the past ages 100 years in just a few minutes, and then disintegrates, is a good visual gag
