Quotes

Judge Ben 'Fair and Square' Wiley: Of all the hard-ridin', hard-shootin', just plain hard hombres that ever plagued the American frontier, about the worst was a passle of outlaws that called themselves "The Wild Bunch." Butch Cassidy was the leader. They seemed to be headin' for the Mexican border. The border's not far south of Wileyville. The only way across it for a good many miles is the toll road through Redskin Gap. The combination toll collector, border guard and chief cook is a retired sea dog named Barnacle Barney. ...

One of the better shows in the series.

This episode started out well. It begins with the US having an out post that for some strange reason charges a toll to travel the road ahead. The post is manned by Barnacle Barney that is an old seaman and builds the outpost like a deck of a ship. Here he even has time to teach Calamity maritime flag signaling, this will come in handy later on in the episode.

It just so happens that a stagecoach loaded with money arrives at the outpost. The money is guarded by Marshal Jeffrey that stays with the money the entire time. But when they stop at the outpost the entire stagecoach is stolen with the Marshal inside. The Marshal is nearly able to get the upper hand but is knocked out. Now the main criminal, Butch Cassidy, puts on the Marshal's badge and pretends to be the Marshal with the real Marshal as Butch Cassidy.

Bill Jr and the Judge helps the fake Marshal by putting the real Marshal in jail. With the Marshal in jail, Butch and his gang is ready to take the money south of the border. But they will have to go through Barnacle Barney's toll road and he has been alerted.

This episode was well done except for the fact that Bill Jr and Calamity is able to outsmart the criminal that people have been chasing for years. It would have been better just to use a unknown name but nearly all episodes has some history lesson for the viewer. Overall it was an entertaining episode that held the interest to the very end. Good watch.
