Surprisingly nice show.
8 August 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In this nice tale, a rugged old man, Sagebrush Smith, is down on his luck and has received word that his daughter, Penelope, will be coming for a visit. The problem with this visit is that Sagebrush has been writing to his daughter that he is a rich man living in an outlaw wild west town which is far from the truth. He dreads having to show that he is a dirty old vagrant that lives in a boring town without a penny to his name.

Well, the gang of Bill Jr, Calamity and the Judge, agree to make Sagebrush look like an important man. So they clean Sagebrush up and Bill Jr is going to pose as the Calico kid and rob the stagecoach to put on a show for Penelope. But as we see, things do not go as planned.

At the beginning of the episode, I did not have too high a hopes since the last few episodes have been rather dull. But was pleasantly surprised at the results of this showing. The acting was good and the story entertaining. Also, for the second time in the series, we get to see Lee Van Cleef as his usual bad guy role. And for the second time Bill Jr gets the upper hand on our likable actor. Nice watch.
