Storyline

Four cowboys ride into the town of Heart's Desire, population 300 to recover some cash they've hidden there. One of them, Frank Kelton, is particularly ornery. He has a chip on his shoulder, hates the town sheriff from the days they were at school together and is just plain mad at the world. An encounter with an alien being gives him - and eventually the other three - the power to destroy anything just by wishing it so. While the cowboys use their new powers, the situation gives the alien all the information he requires. Written by garykmcd

Don't Think Too Much

An alien (one of the typical Outer Limits lizard men) drops in on the Old West. He meets a parson on horseback, invades his body (as many good aliens can do) and proceeds to a small town. Meanwhile, a foursome of outlaws who have no respect for life, are on their way to divvy up some loot that lays buried. They have obviously killed people in cold blood and one of them is beginning to have regrets for the life he has chosen. He would like to sever ties with the other guys, especially after meeting a young widow with whom he has some history. Meanwhile, the parson/alien meets with the psychotic outlaw (played by Esai Morales) and his not so smart partner. He offers them the ability to destroy people with an intense look. Hence, they become invincible. They go on a murderous spree, killing the sheriff and a poor blacksmith who only wants to be finished for the day. Well, our extraterrestrial padre decides to give the good guy (murderer and thief) the same powers as his estranged cronies. This leads to some problems. Anyway, the conclusion is disappointing and full of unanswered questions. Oh, yes, there is a cute little boy and an old man around for plot development. One of the weaker offerings in the series.
