more Meston mayhem
20 October 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

John Meston wrote scripts through "Gunsmoke"'s tenth season. Why he quit isn't clear, but he was quoted as saying that, had he known how long "Gunsmoke" would run, he never would have gotten involved!

This seventh-season episode is ur-Meston. A cruel, greedy husband (William Windom at his nasty/snivelly best) decides to make it look as if his wife has been unfaithful, so he can blackmail his wealthy father-in-law, in exchange for not spreading around the tale. Naturally, the plan backfires, leaving a pile of corpses.

As usual, Meston shows us how to tell a good story. The basic idea is simple, and it develops complexity in plausible ways -- yet we can't anticipate how it's going to turn out. Meston isn't afraid of cruelly unhappy endings.

* "Gunsmoke" was originally conceived as a "noir" Western. Some of the early episodes wouldn't be out of place as hard-boiled crime thrillers.
