A rehashed plot brings nothing new to the viewer

This was a rehashed plot that really just did not being anything new to
the table. When an old ex-lawman turned drunk, is given another chance
by Matt to redeem himself, they story is played out with the same
results we have seen so many times.
It was more the story than the acting. Cameron Mitchell that plays
Chauncey Demon gives an excellent performance as the old drunk that
Matt makes him feel like he has something to live for. Even James
Arness has not lost a beat in this show where he actually appears in
most of the scenes. The bad guy, John Russell, is as good as ever in
The problem was the tired script. This has been played out many many
times in the series. The ex-lawman has to choose between the bottle or
his opportunity for a second chance. The only thing that has changed is
the name of the characters. After twenty years, I am sure that it is
difficult to come up with different concepts for the show but this one
has been done to death.
The actors saved this show by their fine performance. Other than the
actors, this show was disappointing.
