This episode is a nice mixture of comedy and action as Paladin comes to the aid of an old man (Allen's Alley Titus Moody and Pepperidge Farm spokesperson Parker Fennelly) whose crooked sons John and Ed (Warren Oates and Kevin Hagen) are trying to have the court declare him incompetent so they can take over his land. There's also a great shootout scene in an alley at the end of this episode.
Fennelly is great as the odd, yet sane old man and there's a real chemistry between him and Boone that makes me wish he could have been a regular character on the show. Oates is also terrific as the low life son who's ready to do anything to get his father's land. Even at this early age, Oates is an actor that demands your attention. Less so is Paul Jasmin who plays the good brother, Hank. Watch him standing next to Boone in the early scenes. Either Boone was really tall or Jasmin is very tiny!
