The Prince wants to be a cowboy
15 December 2016 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Peter Brown gets to play dual roles in this Laredo episode. Ranger Chad Cooper and a the ruler of some Ruritanian Balkan principality who has chosen to use Laredo for his country to sign a cultural exchange treaty with some Latin American country.

Why Laredo, because Prince Brown has always wanted to see the wild west apparently having read the collected works of Ned Buntline. And he gets his chance when someone tries to kill him and Captain Parmalee works out a plan involving exchanging places.

Another episode a bit too much to swallow. The jingoistic USA of the time would never have allowed such a thing to occur. Someone for sure would have mentioned something about the Monroe Doctrine.
