Fairly complex and very funny episode
23 January 2013 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

The second episode of AS&J is on par with the first, a wonderful story about ownership, theft, and gambling. Two people claim the right for the "McCreedy Bust", but who is right? On top of it all, McCreedy is fond of gambling, not always clean, but Heyes isn't easy to fool. The "ace of spades" scene is a highlight, complete with the most competent laugher I've seen (Peterson, played by Edward Andrews if I read the cast right). This is also where the "five full hands" trick makes it debut.

First-rate episode, no less, packed with strong scenes with fun themes, and with a wonderful cast full of good character actors (Burl Ives, Cesar Romero, Edward Andrews). Just watching those actors is a joy in itself.

The only thing it lacks, if you care about it, is mortal violence. People are fairly nice to each other here... physically, that is. But this is Alias Smith & Jones. It isn't about killing people, it is about all the rest you can do in a western, and it makes a great job in exploring the alternatives.
