A Nolan Showcase
1 May 2010 | by (Claremont,USA) – See all my reviews

An entry like this is, I suppose, a matter of taste. It's done tongue-in-cheek with Nolan playing her crotchety sheriff lady in pretty broad fashion. She manages some comedic charm; at the same time, the normally masterful Paladin appears somewhat flummoxed by her aggressive manner. Still, there's not much plot while the gunplay appears thrown-in for action's sake. Then too, the opening scene with the persistent salesman appears to be educating reviewers on what a shotgun is, as though viewers don't already know.

The entry's mainly a showcase for the versatile Nolan. To me at least, it's episodes like this, elevating character over plot, that suggest the writers are running out of ideas and that the series' best years are behind it.
