Burt Reynolds and Ken Curtis are excellent together in this fun show
28 December 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Burt Reynolds and Ken Curtis are great in this comedy that played out excellent. Both men made the show entertaining and fun to watch.

The episode begins as Festus states that he is 'full of beans' meaning he is in a goofin mood. He goes over to Quints and gets into a friendly scuffle which only leads to Festus falling and breaking Quint's bellows that he uses to heat the fire. Now Quint is going to have to go to Wichita in order to get new ones.

Festus wants to make the trip but Quint tells him an incorrect time that he will be leaving. But that makes no difference as Festus hides under the wagon and unknown to Quint is on the trail with him. So Quint and Festus are now on a road trip.

They pull into one town to spend the night when Festus challenges Quint to a drinking contest. The only thing that it really does is cause a full saloon brawl with them mainly as spectators. During their drunken spectacle Quint tells a woman named Liz that because she feels at danger in this town she can ride with them.

Liz comes along for the ride and sweet talks both men. But along the way Festus and Quint have to fight two brothers that want to take the sweet talking Liz with them. Soon a man named Big Hardy comes into camp and looking for Liz. Hardy is a big man that takes care of both Festus and Quint and goes toward Liz. The next thing is they are having a big kiss and Hardy tells Quint and Festus that they were the best she has ran off with yet. Hardy and Liz leave arm in arm.

After getting back to Dodge with the new bellow, Festus wants to show Quint a wrestling move he learned. Needless to say another trip to Wichita may be in the future.

This show is load of fun and entertaining from start to finish. Cannot say more about this show and the way the two actors worked together. A funny program for all watchers.
