The set used for Coreyville is the set for the series "Gunsmoke". The Sheriff's office, the Hotel and even the General store is the same set as the other series. See more »


In the close-up's of Sheriff Madden, it is obvious he is wearing false side burns: the extensions are off color, showing as brassy from the lighting, and also a light brown. His natural hair side burn is darker brown. The line where the two meet up is easily seen. See more »


Nick Barkley: [Nick walks into the saloon to where Heath is playing poker at a table. He looks over Heath's shoulder to see his hand] You boys can't beat "kings" you better drop.

Started off well but then drifted to a routine western story.
13 August 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

When a man rides up and advises that he is a friend of Heath's, everything appears set for a nice reunion. But before Heath and his friend can meet, two deputies from a town called Coreyville serious wound the visitor. They have a wanted poster for the arrest of the friend and plan to take him back with them.

Instead Jarrod uses some lawyer tactics and stalls the return. In the meaning time Jarrod rides to Coreyville to check out the details of the murder. But what he finds is a town with many secrets that some still want hidden. Jarrod is definitely not welcome when he starts snooping into the elements of the murder.

From the beginning of the episode, it appeared to be an action packed show. But when Jarrod gets to the town of Coreyville it turns into a very routine western show that has been replayed many times. A town is run by one man and it seems everyone is in his pocket. Every western series has two or three scripts with the same elements. Was not very exciting once we got into the story.

There is one scene worth noting. Near the end, there is a time when the shots have to be fired. This must have been rehearsed because when the time to fire came, the Barkley boys all turned and shot at the very same instant.
