Did You Know?


Why, if the waiting gang is close enough and has such an unobstructed view that a flash of light from a mirror can shine on the face of the leader; do they even need a signal? With that kind of view they would be able to see the stage coming and going. See more »

Doc takes more lives that he saves in this strange written story.
4 October 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The episode began strong and ended on a heartwarming note but what was in-between was questionable fiction at best.

The story begins at a stage stop run by Jed Coombs and his wife, Lori. With the stage carrying lots of gold the driver is cautious about what is ahead but he should have been leery of Jed since he alerts a gang of bandits that the stage is pulling out of his location. Sure enough down the road a gang of bandits jump the stage.

However, the stage is able to make it back top the rest stop with some of the passengers still alive. Doc Adams is one of the passengers followed by a blind man, Simon Dobbs, and the wounded driver. But the ordeal is not over. The remaining bandits know where the money is located and plan on storming the stage stop to get their booty.

The story was not really bad- it was just the actions of the characters that was questionable. The action of Doc when he found out that Lori was being abused by her husband just did not fit the profile of the Doc Adams from past episodes. Jack Ging, that played the blind man, for some reason always talked in staccato sentences making it difficult for the viewer to get the true feeling of the character. And when you add Doc's gun-play and the accuracy of the blind man's aim, it was like the writer took us for fools. Nothing wrong with the story it was the script that let us down.
