More Interesting than Suspenseful
9 November 2011 | by (Claremont,USA) – See all my reviews

An episode that generates more interest than suspense or tension. Matt is obliged to travel to New Mexico to serve a warrant on a wanted man. The trouble is two men answer the one description, so Matt can't be sure which is the right party. Then too, both men appear to be leading honest lives, so what's Matt to do.

It's an interesting idea, guessing which man is the former outlaw. However, the plot gets pretty complicated (and contrived) once genuine bad man Gunter and his gang enter the picture. I suspect they're added, along with the rather dislikable Parker, to make the ending more acceptable. Once again, however, the series leaves us pondering an important moral question— namely, the relation between justice and the law.
