Food for Thought
28 September 2011 | by See all my reviews

Brutal killing of settler families on the prairie looks like the work of the Pawnee. Matt goes to investigate and encounters cavalry troop led by inexperienced Captain (Rudley). However, Matt's suspicious and sets a trap for the marauders, but will he and Chester be enough.

That sparking scene between aw-shucks Chester and the winsome Arie (Meyler) is a little gem of charming innocence. Chester's endearing simple soul is truly an original creation, unlike any other supporting player of the time, and Dennis Weaver deserves great credit for helping make the series the huge hit it was.

Another winning element is also on display here. And that's the willingness of the producers to risk showing Matt's human side, even when it compromises his US marshal's role. In short, he's not always a paragon of law enforcement virtue, which not only makes his role more believable, but also works to make some entries more interesting and thought provoking than usual. As it does here.
