Reese's Gold
12 October 2008 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

Reese (Neville Brand) is called in for praise, and assigned a solo mission, by Parmalee (Philip Carey); he is to transport a special, secret shipment from St. Louis to Laredo. Reese suspects it's an important shipment of gold, and brags to Chad (Peter Brown) and Joe (William Smith), in the saloon. Their conversation is overheard; causing several gold-diggers to threaten Reese's mission - including: sweet talking Jeanette Nolan (as Ma Burns), corrupt Sheriff (as Wes Cottrell), old timer Arthur Hunnicutt, and gun-slinger Tom Reese (as Tom Baker).

This episode is the first to focus almost exclusively on one character; in this case, Mr. Brand's Reese. An opening scene includes the three rangers, and some stock footage appears toward the end. Mr. Brown's "Chad" has a good scene, near the end. Understandably, the "Laredo" team spirit is subdued. Ms. Nolan's scheming turn as "Muriel Beauregard" is the strongest of a notable guest roster.
