clever sci-fi or fantasy plot.
6 August 2014 | by (working in Movieland) – See all my reviews

*Spoiler/plot- The Orb Scholar, Eps 3, TV air date 9/3/93. While still tracking the Blye Gang, Brisco meets with a mysterious scientist who know all about the 'orb'. He wishes to learn from this scientist as fast as possible.

*Special Stars- Bruce Campbell, Julius Carry, Christian Clemenson, Billy Drago, Robert Picardo, Brandon Maggart.

*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 exceptional episode with clever sci-fi or fantasy plot elements, and as such the plot seemed very engaging and exciting. plenty enough surprise, action, comedy or drama. Unique and clever 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.
