A circus show has more to offer than entertainment
5 February 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The Harry Elko Variety Show comes to Dodge and has everyone in town talking about catching the circus show. With animals, a fortune-teller, a midget and a strongman this show will prove to be the most exciting night Dodge has seen in sometime. Everyone in town is planning to make sure they see the one night stand of Elko's circus.

When Marshal Dillon hears the name of Harry Elko, he thinks he has heard of that name before. He does some checking and found out that banks have been robbed during Elko's performances. So the night of the performance Matt will be staying at the bank.

But during the one time performance, things do not go as planned. The bank safe will not be harmed but people will die and lives ruined. There is more to this nickle and dime Variety Show than meets the eye.

With so many scripts, this episode stands out as unique. Not the most entertaining show but one that held the viewer's interest to the end. Even though it was very predictable outcome, you still had that desire to watch till the end. Good show.
