The premise is a familiar one- a man's brothers swear vengeance on Paladin after the man in black is forced to kill him. But from there the story takes a few unexpected turns, especially when an aging sheriff has to decide whose side he's on.
This entry kicked off the second season so a strong one is expected, particularly after the successful first year. Boone is his usual persuasive self as the gunfighter, while veteran actor Calleia gets a challenging turn as the sheriff. Watch too for Martin Balsam as the lead brother, a year before he took that famous tumble down the stairs at the Bates motel. All in all, a better than average screenplay.
