An intimidating man with issues
20 March 2017 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

This episode of Laramie has Slim Sherman coming rather reluctantly to the aid of old war buddy Charles Aidman whom he offered a job to with his release from prison. But it's a different kind of aid now that Aidman wants from John Smith. He's looking to run from a new charge of murder and from the same peace officer that arrested Aidman before, Marshal R.G. Armstrong of Cheyenne.

Armstrong is a ruthless and intimidating man even taking over the town of Laramie looking for a wounded Aidman and saloon girl Jan Shepard who is a witness. He's also a man with some real issues.

Armstrong totally dominates this Laramie episode. This is a worth a look for what he does with his role.
