Storyline

Sam must investigate a series of unexplained shootings that have occurred after receiving an unsigned letter stating the Sheriff is incompetent. When he arrives and talks to the Sheriff about the shootings, he decides to hold a meeting with the Kolb family who are responsible for the killings. The following morning, they arrive in town to announce they won't be attending the meeting. If Sam expects the Sheriff to back him up, he'll be very disappointed! Written by Michelle

Courage
16 January 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This episode was about a Sheriff who didn't seem to have courage. His wife was very, very upset with him and ashamed. Sheriff Shaw was played by Claude Adkins, another wonderful and talented character actor! He's another one of my favorites. Though he usually plays a bad guy, he was actually pretty decent of a guy in this episode (as wall as in one episode of Rifleman called "Meeting at Midnight.").

The sheriff uses the excuse that the Kolb's support the town and if they were gone, the town would die. Well, that would be better than eleven citizens dying.

In the end, his wife showed to have more courage then him. I won't tell the way it ends, but let me just say that I don't think there was any other ending that would have worked in this situation. What happened had to happen.
