Perfecting Justice
10 September 2014 | by See all my reviews

Four bullies come to Trinity to sell Protection and they stay at the boarding house where Caleb and Dr. Matt Crower live. Caleb witnesses four man wearing masks of pig killing a local, drowning him in his bathtub. People believe that the strangers are working for Sheriff Lucas Buck that feels affected in his reputation. He meets Barrett and Lowell Stokes, Earl McKeever and Just Eddie at the boarding house porch and has a conversation with them. Soon Sheriff Buck decides to bring his own justice to Trinity.

"Strong Arm of the Law" is one of the best episodes of "American Gothic" so far and the first time that I cheer for the Sheriff Lucas Buck. His sense of justice is creepy and the conclusion is a ripoff of "Mad Max". My vote is nine.
