Gothic Laredo
4 December 2016 | by See all my reviews

This episode of Laredo goes into the Gothic horror genre with the usual Laredo rambunctious comedy when a series of murders occurs in the town. We're given enough red herrings in this to fill a fish market. William Smith is even a suspect for a while.

Sailor Tom Simcox comes looking for his brother who he is told has died and he blames Dr. DeForest Kelley for the death. William Smith loses heavy to tinhorn gambler Harry Lauter. John Carradine comes with his medicine show exhibit of famous murders. All are guests at the hotel run by Virginia Christine and her daughter Laraine Stephens.

Before the show is over two of these cast members die and of course the Rangers are wild with speculation. I won't say who, but it is for a reason none of them conceive until the very end of the show.

This might have played better as a dramatic piece. The regulars are their usual selves, but it doesn't quite gel for me.
