Takes a Plot Heavy Turn
1 September 2011 | by (Claremont,USA) – See all my reviews

With her malt shop perkiness, Stevens seems an unlikely choice for a Western. (She always reminded me of a charming cross between Debbie Reynolds and Minnie Mouse.) But, of course, Maverick was not a typical Western. Actually, she and Garner make an amusing couple, even if their clinches are something of a stretch. Then too, the "bath mixup" is genuinely cute without being cutesy.

The episode starts off in this engaging lighter vein, but then develops into a plot-heavy latter half. It's something about Frankie (Stevens) getting money to go to Ten Strike for some unknown reason and Bret getting really knocked around for not leaving town. I just wish the writers had continued with a lighter story to showcase the pair's comedic talents, instead of the rather awkward plot development. Anyway, it's good to see old pro's King and Talbot picking up a payday. The formidable King was always adept at playing a spider woman, as she does here. All in all, it's half a good Maverick.
