Talky, but with an Interesting Twist
17 April 2012 | by (Claremont,USA) – See all my reviews

A rather static, confined episode (a single indoor set) that still manages an interesting twist. Paladin tries to avoid a showdown with notorious gunfighter Tuttle (Lyons) who also happens to be well spoken and with a family. But how can Paladin do it since Tuttle seems determined to kill him despite their civilized talk.

There's a reason for that initial dust-up that's also more contrived than usual. It breaks up the next 20-minutes of talk, unusual for an action series. The twist involves an interesting variation on the sympathetic gunfighter theme, a popular subject of the time. That final gunplay, in my view, harms what would otherwise be an interesting upshot, namely, Tuttle walking away alone, having made an unexpected choice. Had the screenplay developed the plot in a more visually involving, less static way, the entry could have been a real standout.
