Scans show a settlement was created about 250 years ago and the people are still living a Wild West life. Archer soon finds out the aliens are called Skagaraans and the government of these Skags was overthrown many years ago by a certain Cooper Smith.

I'd like to chime in
7 February 2014 | by (WA) – See all my reviews

I liked this episode quite a bit. Although I enjoy the Xindi arc, stand alone episodes are nice too. I think the fact that it is a western should let you know from the beginning not to take it too seriously, but that is why I enjoyed it. Like many other episodes, it does wrap up somewhat quickly, but I thought it was a decent ending. It's worth watching if you enjoy westerns, but if you only care about the Xindi story arc you can skip this one without missing anything. I thought it was good though, a lot better than many other stand alone episodes.

I definitely disagree with others' opinion that this is the worst episode of the season, but that is their opinion and that is fine. I just wanted to agree with the first review to balance out the other two reviews.
