Storyline

A "goose-drownder" (rainstorm) perilously strands gambling rivals Gentleman Jack and Bart in a tiny roadhouse. A stagecoach has to pull in, too, brimming with suspicious, hostile characters, especially a wounded, notorious highwayman, The Arapaho Kid, and a bedding salesman named Red Herring! The Kid's blonde lady-friend, Stella Legendre (in French, "the sex star") once robbed Bart, but Bart forgives her. Does Bart still have a soft spot for Stella, or is he just trying to discern which ones are The Kid's gang? Written by David Stevens

Quotes

[first lines]
Boone Gillis: Rain's still coming down wholesale. Think the good Lord is over-stocked. We don't get rain in these parts 'cept once in five years. Then they get us a real goose-drownder like this one, sorta to make up for lost time.

One Heckuva Storm

Okay entry that plays more like a drawing room drama than a Western. Bart and Gentleman Jack are stranded in a stagecoach way station with a cast of assorted characters including a murderous Arapaho Kid. There's something of a dark, noirish atmosphere since it's constant rain and thunder. In fact, the stormy effects crew probably got overtime pay. To me, the best parts are the clever banter between Bart and Gentleman Jack-- Richard Long is so good at tongue-in-cheek. Also, the star-crossed Fay Spain gets a big part, though there's more heavy breathing with her and Bart than is usual for the series. What suspense there is comes from not knowing when the delirious Arapaho Kid will lash out beyond his wounds. All in all, it's a rather talky episode, except for the well-done special effects.
