Have Sidekick, Will Travel
18 March 2007 | by (Argentina) – See all my reviews

Kam Tong finally gets an episode where he does more than get Paladin his newspapers and mail. Paldin is upset when he discovers Hey Boy is no longer an employee of the hotel. He was terminated after not showing up for several days. So Paladin goes to investigate.

He discovers Hey Boy has gone to a railroad camp run by the unscrupulous and racist Travis (Pernell Roberts). Word is that Travis had a hand in killing Hey Boy's brother and Hey Boy is there to get revenge. Paldin arrives in time to stop Hey Boy from committing murder and works to get Travis arrested for murder.

In this episode, we learn Paladin speaks and reads Chinese (though he needs help with some of the writing from Hey Boy's sister--who would briefly take over for her brother in season four while Kam Tong did another series) and he doesn't suffer racists gladly.

Although the subject of racism and intolerance is an important subject and a rare one for the time, the episode moves pretty slowly, particularly the first half before they get to the mining camp. And now that he's been given a bigger role, Kam Tong really doesn't do much with it. Phil Ahn is also in the cast, but he's in the slow moving first half.
