It's a shame...
14 November 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Matt had to help a bad guy. I guess the law's the law, and it protects the bad as well as the good. This is an okay episode. The second in the series, they were still getting all the wrinkles out of the way the show was going to go. I can't say Season 1 is the best. I can't say Season 4 is the best...They all are unique with their own line of stories.

In this episode, we see Matt riding upon a lynching party and they have the rope around the neck of a supposed horse thief. Matt knew he was bad. He'd seen his wanted posters. He could have turned and rode away...

It would have saved a lot of trouble.
