Here is one of the better episodes we have a seen in a long time. It takes all the aspects of a classic western and tells a story that is entertaining to even the novice viewer. Everyone should view this show to see how westerns should be made.
It begins when Marshal Dillon and Chester on are the path of a wanted man, Jim Nation. Jim finally surrenders but all the horses are either dead or in such bad shape that the three men are going to have to walk back to Dodge.
Matt remembers there is a stage that runs about twenty miles away from their location so they hop on the stage trying to make it back to Dodge. But on the stage is a bandit that plans on stealing the strong box and robbing the passengers. Matt may have to rely on his prisoner for help as the bandit holds an old man as hostage for safe passage.
An entertaining episode that was a pleasure to watch. Young Simon Oakland is fantastic as the Matt's prisoner in route back to Dodge to stand trial. An excellent performance by Mr Oakland. Great acting by the entire cast and a well rounded script brought the show to a high point of interest. One of the better shows in the collection.
