John MacCambridge is the former marshal of Dodge City and a friend of Slim Sherman. He arrives in Laramie at the same time that Slim is seeing Jess Harper off on a cattle drive with the combined herds of several area ranches. MacCambridge is in town to buy a particular piece of land from Slim, supposedly to become a rancher. Slim refuses to sell the land but does agree to lease the land to MacCambridge. What MacCambridge doesn't tell Slim is that his partners in the ranch are some of the outlaws and gunmen that he's dealt with over the years. The situation in Laramie becomes volatile as, one by one, Mac's partners arrive and are recognized by the townsfolk forcing Slim to confront Mac about his activities on the property. Adding fuel to the fire are a couple of disgruntled cowboys stirring up trouble. When one of the small farms is raided and the owner killed, blame is laid directly on Mac's doorstep, putting Slim in the middle between his friend Mac and his friends in town. Tensions ...

Good Show,But No Macready
22 March 2017 | by (rockingham) – See all my reviews

Watched this because George Macready is listed as having an uncredited cameo as a judge.Not only was the only judge I saw not Macready,but looked nothing like him.This was a good episode,and there were plenty of good actors and acting.Liked Hoagy Carmichael in series 1,and can't understand why he didn't return,but the chemistry between Fuller & Smith was THE BEST!So whomever was a series regular,those two were enough for the series.And their pants were too tight.The sense of family was there and Daisy's addition was well appreciated.The series drew quality guest stars throughout its run,and too bad its like isn't around today.And they don't make an actor like George Macready today,sad to say,and I miss him.RIP,George!
