Storyline

Lazyfoot and a tribe of renegades raid the town of El Presidio which calls the Texas Rangers for help. Parmalee sends the three rangers ahead to scout for Lazyfoot while disguised as prospectors and he will follow with a troop of Rangers. At El Presidio Cooper and Riley want to join Grubby who says he has hit a strike in the area where Lazyfoot is hiding. Reese disagrees so they trick the Sheriff into locking him up as a suspected sheep rustler. Cooper, Riley, and Grubby are captured by Lazyfoot. Reese frees only Grubby thinking he will get in on Grubby's gold. Paralee arrives and stopping Lazyfoot becomes an issue as he has a Gatling gun and dynamite to aid in his ambush of Parmalee. Reese saves the day but Cooper and Riley take the credit while Grubby has a surprise for all of them. Written by Anonymous

How to Catch a Drunken Indian
12 October 2008 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

In the series premiere, Native American Indians terrorize the town of Presidio, stealing the people's supply of liquor. Meanwhile, back in Laredo, gullible Neville Brand (as Reese Bennett) is tricked into entering a bullfight, by handsome Texas rangers Peter Brown (as Chad Cooper) and William Smith (as Joe Riley), who take bets on the victor. After some silliness, ranger boss Philip Carey (as Capt. Parmalee) sends the trio undercover, as gold prospectors, to catch the Indian "Lazyfoot", and his tribe. Mr. Carey surmises the Indians will be easy to catch, as they will be drunk on their stolen booty.

In Presidio, the trio meet old prospector Burgess Meredith (as Grubby), and hip-swinging saloon proprietor Beverly Garland (as Aggie). Excited about a claim, Mr. Meredith invites the undercover lawmen to partner up. Chad and Joe want to go along, for the money, but Reese vetoes the idea. To get rid of Reese (temporarily), Chad and Joe pretend he is the wanted sheep rustler "Jack Kendall". After Reese is jailed, Chad and Joe head out prospecting. Instead of gold, they find "Lazyfoot" and his boozing Indians to be more surefooted than expected.

The lighthearted camaraderie between stars Neville Brand, Peter Brown, and William Smith is what really sustains the episode and, more or less, the series. For the climax, Brown and Smith are stripped of their shirts, and tied to the ground; obviously, this is done to show off their admirable physiques. Unfortunately, Native Americans are not only stereotypical in manner, but also laughable in appearance. "Laredo" was piloted in an earlier edition of "The Virginian".
