Matt believes people can change
7 June 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The episode opens up with a man wanting Matt to serve a warrant on Jim Glass that was issued in New Mexico. Seems that Glass is suspected in some criminal activity but the man with the warrant hints that about a hanging even though there has not been a trial. Matt is very suspicious about the contents of the warrant. The man tells Matt that Glass is living in Tascosa, which is in Texas, and he will wait in Dodge for Matt to serve the warrant. So Matt and Chester make their way to Tascosa with the only description being a six foot tall man 180 lbs., black hair and a cut along his ribs.

When in Tascosa, Matt meets three men that fit the description of the wanted Glass. With each a suspect as being the wanted man, Matt will see how each man lives and then determine the best situation for moving the warrant to the next phase.

Not really an exciting adventure but a story that is entertaining in its own way. Matt and Chester make a call that may not be correct but fits the changing times of life. Good watch.
