When Jarrod and the Basque Francisco are taking celebratory drinks from the Bota bag at the very end, it is obviously a modern day Bota as the plastic screw on fittings are easily visible. See more »

Jarrod Barkley against the world
27 December 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Richard Long gets his turn at the wheel as the episode centers around him defending a Basque Sheepherder that is accused of murder. But Jarrod has a difficult task ahead of him. Not only is client accused of murder but is also a political anarchist set on destroying the American justice system. All in a town that is full of hatred and bigotry for the sheepherder.

To basically sum up the plot, It is Jarrod Barkley against the world as he tries to prove to the Basque people and the town-folks that the justice system is working for all the people. So we spend a few days with Jarrod to see what lovely situations he has to fight through in order to save his client from an early hanging.

The only remarkable thing that stood out in this episode was the courtroom scene. They hold court in the local saloon and hang a sign that says "Bar closed Court is Session" I assume to let people know that no drinks would be served. There was some good scenes with Jarrod and the judge which stands out- but really nothing else.

It really was not a bad episode but was just more along the lines of a regular plot with the usual outcome. But better than most things on TV today.

Nick and Heath make a cameo but Audra is a no-show. She must have been doing her hair and was too busy to walk down the stairs.
