'Thud' is a 4-Letter Word
23 March 2010 | by (Claremont,USA) – See all my reviews

Palladin works at making a one-day success out of a failed cowboy (William Joyce) who would rather be a teacher.

An installment like this usually signals series decline. It's a clumsy stab at amusement with an awkward script, a near-burlesque Palladin, and a totally inept Joyce in the pivotal role. A more skilled actor as the wanna-be teacher might have brought a few chuckles, but the whole thing appears stitched together and in some haste. Boone does get to show some comedic ability, but the entry does nothing for the Palladin character. I understand that a 36-entries-per-year series must look for some variety. Nonetheless, a series with a strong central character like Palladin must be careful with the liberties it takes, particularly when attempting comedic overtones. This attempt lacks the care needed and illustrates the hazards of departing too incautiously from a series norm.
