Chester Takes Over
18 April 2013 | by (Claremont,USA) – See all my reviews

Chester and Doc are riding alone on the prairie when they discover a wounded man. Doc, of course, tries to help, but then the two baddies who shot the guy show up and threaten Doc if he tries to help. Shots are traded and Doc is badly wounded, while the two culprits ride off. Now Chester has two wounded men to care for, plus the threat of the bad guys returning. He and Doc are in a pickle for sure.

It's an average episode that showcases Weaver's acting abilities, especially when he thinks Doc may die. All the action takes place on the prairie with Matt making just a brief appearance. There's some suspense, but frankly the gunplay is not well staged and the inherent suspense is not played up. Watch for an early Ken Curtis bulging his eyes, and veteran bad guy Robert Wilke who belongs in the Thuggery Hall of Fame.
