Outside of Dodge, a trapper rides upon two men leaning over a body. Thinking it's a robbery, he shoots at them and runs them off.

Did You Know?


George Lindsay's character tricks Festus into coming into the jail cell, around the 46:00 mark, grabs his gun and locks Festus in the cell by slamming the cell door. Lindsay must have used too much force because if you look in the right corner of the screen at that moment the wall separates and a corner bead of tape, or some other material rolls down like someone is peeling it off, they never break character.

Two men accused of beating Doc hope Matt shows up
30 March 2013 | by See all my reviews

It is sad when a reviewer will complain and then will not take the time to look up the episode anywhere on the computer. If renafaye had just take the time to Google the episode plot then she would know that the first reviewer was correct.

The show is about two men that is accused of seriously injuring Doc after some buffalo hunter gives a made up story to the people at the Long Branch. They town wants to kill the men instead of waiting for a trial. The episode that renafaye is referring is called The New Society. This episode was well written and well done by the actors. A special treat is that George Lindsey who is known as Goober from Andy Griffith is playing a dramatic part. And actually does a good job of making you believe that he could have been a semi-serious actor if fate had not acted.
