Bradley (Jim Backus), judge and "manly man" (by 1950s standards of course), wants to go on a camping, hunting and fishing trip with "the boys" - but his scatterbrained wife Joan (Joan Stevens) has made her mind up that she wants to go with them. And since it's the 1950s, women on a camping trip are a big no-no, so Bradley does everything in his power to dissuade her - but Joan's not one to give up (even if she tends to fail miserably), so she pretents to be a top camper and takes riding lessons (both with embarrassing results), all before trying to prove to Bradley that she's just as tough as he is - but he's got a few tricks up his sleeve as well ...

 

Well, from today's point of view, this episode of I Married Joan will probably viewed as rather sexist, as most of the views portrayed in this one are totally out of date in 2018, and even if the story as a whole is presented as a comedy it lacks any self-aware irony ... and that all said, today's rules didn't apply all these years (66) back, and whatever's viewed as oldfashioned today was totally the norm (at least in TV, back then a conservative bastion) in the 1950s - and taking that into account, the episode is quite entertaining and interesting from a historical point of view, and some of the stuff in there, including some slapstick sequences (like Joan learning and failing to ride a horse) are rather well done for sure. So in all, a worthy trip down nostalgia lane, as long as you leave today's (well-justified) political correctness at the door.
