A good thirty minute story stretched to a long hour episode.
22 August 2013 | by See all my reviews

This was not a bad story had the writers introduced a side plot to keep the viewer's interest going. But the story was not filling enough for a full hour of entertainment. There is much useless fluff that actually took away from the story rather than enhanced.

It begins as we see Frank Reardon over the grave of his dead pregnant wife. And from the writing on the tombstone we know that she was murdered. He leaves his house and vows to hunt down everyone involved and dish out the punishment he sees fit, which is death. He has now tracked the last three men to Dodge.

When he arrives in Dodge we learn that Reardon use to be a former lawman and was highly thought by Matt and the citizens of Dodge. Matt informs Reardon that while in Dodge the law will be followed and no revenge killing will take place. That is a bit before Reardon is shot by one of the gang members.

There is nothing wrong with the story at this point. But we now still have over half of the show left to get to the climax of the story. Instead of introducing some incident going on with another member of town they try to stretch this situation out to finish the show. The show sunk into a wounded Reardon and the three men wanting each other dead. Just not interesting enough to make for a hour show.
