YouTube Spotlight: Ralph Waite on "The Mississippi"

One of my favorite clips in this week's YouTube playlist for The Waltons is the opening sequence to short-lived CBS series The Mississippi.

Thanks to The Rap Sheet for posting this on its own YouTube channel.

The Mississippi ran 1982-1984 for a total of 27 episodes. As you can tell from this sequence, Waite is a criminal attorney who gives it all up (sort of) to buy a boat. The thing is, he keeps running into people who need a good lawyer as he makes his way up and down the mighty Mississip.

I don't know why, but I love this premise.
