Festus has some of his best lines in this funny episode
8 March 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Festus is on his way to Buckland to aid his cousin Maude. What has happened is that Maude Haggan is in trouble with the Watson boys after their father drank some poison moonshine. Now the Watson brothers want revenge.

On the way to Buckland, Festus comes up on a man named Jim Travers that has accident shot himself. He tells Festus if he buries him that he can have his silver stunned saddle. So later Festus comes to Buckland with a silver saddle on Ruth. But little does Festus know that Jim Travers was a hired gunman, hired by the mayor of Buckland, to get the Watson brothers out of town. When Festus comes in on the saddle he is mistaken for the gunman. When the Watson brothers hear that Jim Travers is in town they want to make a name for themselves. Festus life is in danger.

The episode was quite entertaining. With Festus country humor and the Watson brothers, composed of comedians, this show was a pleasure to watch. There is a lot of things going on in this episode so be prepared for frogs, rabid dogs, card stacking and a nasty fist fight. All-in-all a good watch that was interesting to the end.

Note- Saw this episode many times. On TVLand, for commercial reasons, they have cut out some of the best parts of the story. They cut over six minutes of the show. Try to get an unedited episode to see all the funny lines.
