Not enough surprise.
6 August 2014 | by (working in Movieland) – See all my reviews

*Spoiler/plot- Socrates Sister, Eps 2, TV air date 9/24/93. Mr. Poole's lawyer sister comes to town to make things difficult in Brisco's investigations. She is representing a counterfeiter that claims mistaken identity.

*Special Stars- Bruce Campbell, Julius Carry, Christian Clemenson, John Astin, Judith Hoag.

*Theme- Logical thinking and deduction can help criminal investigations.

*Trivia/location/goofs- 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- An episode with little or no sci-fi or fantasy plot elements, and as such the plot seemed very slow and plodding. Judith Hoag work has little amusement and interest. 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. Western steam punk era stories.
