Not much excitement in this episode
4 March 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

William Shatner plays Brett Skyler an old college buddy of Jarrod that has come to town on a visit. Jarrod is so happy to see his old pal that he invites him to stay with the family at the ranch. But things take a bad turn when a Secret Service officer comes to visit Jarrod asking questions about Brett and his involvement in counterfeiting. And when Jarrod finds a large sum of money in Brett's suitcase things look bad for his old friend.

Jarrod takes the money to the officer only to find that the money is real. Jarrod feels so much better that he offers Brett a partnership into the law office. But things are not quite over.

William Shatner does an excellent job of playing the quick talking college chum that sweet talks his way through the entire episode. In fact the entire plot was very interesting and made for a nice summary for the episode. But when it came down to watching the show- it left for lessen excitement. We were introduced to Brett and the Secret Service officer all in the first ten minutes of the show. There was no anticipation or mystery that surround the episode since we all knew what was ahead. Don't mean to be a buzz-kill concerning the episode because the episode was well acted. But the way the story was introduced left for little in our imagination.
