"...and the winner for LOUDEST PERFORMANCE in a TV western...
4 September 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

...is Forest Tucker for "Sgt. Holly". *

Forest Tucker talks so loudly and so much it's amazing any of the sets are left standing. Long before the final credits, one feels one has been aurally assaulted and battered.

This episode is often cited as one of the very worst. Whoever feels that way has apparently never seen the prequel that introduces Holly, "The War Priest", which is appalling. (See my review.) At least "Sgt. Holly" tells a single, more or less coherent story that makes (some) sense in terms of motives and events.

There is one bit of confusion. In "Priest" he was presumably thrown out of the Army for not being on time for his official honorable discharge. Why he's still in the Army is never explained. But at least this isn't as absurd as Mannon coming back to life for "Return to Dodge".

I like Forest Tucker very much. (It's hard not to like the guy.) But both episodes are very much a much of a muchness. Approach with caution.

* Note that the correct title is "Sgt. Holly" -- as shown on the title card -- not "Sergeant Holly".
