Nothing new in this predictable episode
10 December 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This started as a nice story of a young girl trying to find her father only to learn that he is a wanted man. Then it turned into an episode that seemed stretched to the limit of interest. It got old really fast.

Jenny Pritchard, a ten year old girl, rides the stage into Dodge to find her father. She is met by Newly and Ms Kitty that hope to help her in her efforts. When Jenny tells them that her father is Lucas Pritchard both look at each other knowing that he is a wanted outlaw.

Newly rides out to where Jenny told him where her father was living and makes a bargain with Lucas. Lucas will have two days of amnesty to see his daughter then be arrested for trial. But when Newly and Lucas get into Dodge Judge Franklin demands Lucas spend his time in jail to stand trial. Newly has to go back on his word and he places Lucas in jail.

Jenny, while searching for Newly, stumbles into the Marshal's office and see the prisoner. From paperwork she finds out that the man in jail is her father and is a wanted man. Lucas asked Newly if he can just have a few minutes with his daughter. Newly agrees but after the meeting Lucas escapes from Newly's grasp. With Judge Franklin watching Newly is placed in jail for failure to follow the law. If Lucas does not return to jail Newly could stand trial.

The rest of the episode is very predictable. Nothing that peaks any interest to make the viewer anymore interested in the story. Even with the 1970's child star Lisa Gerritsen this episode was just average. Nothing new to report.
