      The Virginian: The Long Quest is one of those that is so hard to watch because of its poignancy. It’s a story of tragedy that really doesn’t have a winner, no matter how you look at it, because someone is going to end up on the short stick.

        There’s a lot of emotion and discussion about what makes a mother in this 90-minute episode. You can’t help but feel for both ladies, though one is painted more sympathetically than the other.

        Patricia Breslin is very good as the ‘adoptive’ mother, while Ruta Lee turns in a solid performance as the birth mother. Both exude strength.

        There is a lot

        more to this story, and it’s somewhat predictable, but still good to watch. Add Joseph Campanella’s punch to the story, and it’s a dynamic show to watch.

        The ending was very good, though I would have liked one real scene between the two mothers. There was a moment, but it was sustained long enough or with the right emotion. Still, good show.
