Even with some questionable tactics in this episode, the story was
strong enough to produce another highly delightful show that was
entertaining to viewers. And after watching, it raises the question of
why the show did not continue for at least another season due to the
excellent writing and acting.
In this episode a rebellious father and sons team, The Kaysingers, ride
into Dodge and hear about a man that has just sold his cattle and is
showing off his money. That evening they go and steal the money killing
the man and severely injuring the wife. With aging Judge John Kendall
in town it looks to be a open and shut case but when no witnesses come
forward Judge Kendall release all but one of the boys, Cory, that was
also charged with theft of a horse.
Later the father comes up to the Judge and tells him that his boy
better go free or the Judge will pay the price. But during the trial
for the horse theft, Judge Kendal sentences Cory to death. Now the
Kaysingers are bound to take their revenge out on the Judge and also
the town of Dodge.
A well written story till about this part when for some reason the
Judge does something that, even to the novice viewer, just seems
bizarre even for this fictional event. So we as viewers have to take
some of the actions in stride in order to enjoy the closure of the
program. The action never really took away from the show, in fact, it
may have added some element that brings the story to a nice close- but
it just did not set well. Anyway this story was interesting and the
acting well done. Even with the questionable tactic the show still
