Could have been a good episode on its on- but the story continues
6 October 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The first part of this two part show begins when three men are on the prairie and come across a lame calf. As was routine in the west, the men killed the calf so that the wolves would not be able to get the meat. As they are cutting up the calf for a meal, in rides some cowboys lead by land-baron Mr Parker that has a town named after him and a hired sheriff that does exactly what he is told. It was Mr Parker's calf that they killed so he takes revenge on the three men. He kills one man, badly injures, Zack Johnson, and only minor wounds Bob Johnson. Now Bob Johnson vows to take revenge out on Mr Parker.

The rest of this episode is setting up for the climax that will happen near the end of the tale. Bob will, very cleverly, use some unique psychology against the Parker's in order to begin a scheduled plan in seeking the revenge he craves.

This episode, on its own, could have made for a nice show as the story could have finished after an street scene inside Dodge. But the writer forced Bob to take a turn toward the town of Parkertown (owned by the Parkers) to continue his revenge against the death of others. So the story will advance as we move into the second part of the saga.
