Classic western episode
13 September 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

With a brief sigh, we return to a classic western tale that makes the series such a wonderful watch. From Indian racism, cattle theft and an action packed fight, this makes for an entertaining western placing us right in the middle of the late 1800's.

It begins when Matt is on his way to the Traych ranch where they have been having some cattle come up missing. But along the way Matt comes across a badly wounded Indian kid. It appears that someone jumped the kid and tied his hands together then beat him. Matt takes the kid back to Dodge for treatment.

Traych comes into Dodge upset that Matt did not make his plan visit to his ranch. He tells Matt that more of his cattle has been slaughtered and blames the theft on an Indian tribe camped a few miles away from his ranch.

When Matt rides out to gather more information about the cattle theft, he will find more than he bargained. With luck he will be able to solve two crimes in a very short period.

A very well done show that was classic western TV. Most times when we get a similar plot the show is a success and this program does not let us down. Coming to the close of season five some of the show were looking aged- but this episode brings us back to the roots of the series. Good watch.
