A little comedy in the old west- and I do mean little.
2 October 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Merry Florene and family should have stayed in the hills but seem fit to return in this episode. From 'Hill Girl' in season 13, this season 14 episode features the same cast of clowns as Merry Florene's cousins Elbert and Shorty come up with a scheme to get the residence of Dodge to invest in spot of land in an abandon gold mine.

It began when Elbert and Short came across an old-timer miner that had been working for twenty years with little to show in this mine. The old timer was leaving and gave the two his bag of gold flakes that obtain for the last twenty years. Now Albert and Shorty go into Dodge and show off the gold flakes and pretend they just dug the gold up in hours. There is a rush to pay ten dollars to dig near the mine which Elbert and Shorty named Gold Town. They send for Merry Florene and grand-ma to help start the new city. Which we all knew was not going to work out well for anyone.

It was nice to see Merry Florene and Newly together again but little else is remarkable in this episode. It is perhaps time to shelve the hill people and develop more interesting characters.
