*Spoiler/plot- Brisco in Jalisco, Eps 5, TV air date 9/17/93. Briscos bunch must go into Mexico to follow the leads about new crimes of stolen repeating rifles and Blythe's gang whereabouts.
*Special Stars- Bruce Campbell, Julius Carry, Christian Clemenson, Kelly Rutherford.
*Theme- Logical thinking and deduction can help criminal investigations.
*Trivia/location/goofs- The Mexican village is a standing set and area in the Valusade' Ranch in Santa Clarita, Califoria. It's sister film ranch of the old Gene Autry ranch in Newhall, CA. Thats the home of the Santa Cklarita Cowboy festival held every Spring of the year. The town scenes were in the old Warner Brother's Laredo western Street on the studio back lot. That has been demolished and rebuilt as office space for rentals.
*Emotion- A clever pun episode's title make a laugh, but little else does. An episode with little or no sci-fi or fantasy plot elements, and as such the plot seemed very slow and plodding. Not enough surprise, action, comedy or drama. Pedestrian western fare.
*Based on- The producers and writers wanted to recreate the entertainment of the 30s-50s theatrical cliff-hanger film serials. Most were westerns or sci-fi. They succeeded.
