Volume 2 contains some of the more interesting and entertaining episodes. "Annie and the Silver Ace" is from the first season and features frequent guest Harry Lauter as the owner of a gambling saloon whom Annie tries to reform. She is so nice to him, you wonder if he is an old flame (Harry appeared a dozen times on the show, though as different characters). Kid brother Tagg has an important role using hypnosis, of all things! Alan Hale, Jr., is very funny as the bad guy subject to Tagg's spell. "Annie and the Lacemaker", from the last season, has another unusual plot device where a lace dress helps to determine which girl is the true heir to a man's estate. Lots of mystery in this episode. "Flint and Steel", another season 3 episode, is a more traditional western story about some thugs who try to force ranchers off their land to grab it. Annie gets to do some sharpshooting here (using different jacketed bullets!) to save the day. She gets some help from one of the ranch wives - does she knows how to ride and shoot? Of course! "Annie and the Chinese Puzzle" (season 2) tells the story of how Annie and Tagg help a laundry owner (Key Luke) framed for a murder, with themes of bigotry and when to tell the truth. Overall, a great selection of episodes. You get to see the deepening relationship between Annie and Deputy Lofty - she practically proposes to him in one the episodes, and the growth of Tagg, who almost towers over Annie by the last season.
