There is some kind of story around all the gunfire.
16 August 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This rather silly episode begins with three brothers are tearing up the local saloon in North Fork. Just so happens that the Marshal and Lucas are handy and enter to bring peace. But when they enter the three backwood brothers keep acting like animals until one of the brothers accidentally shooting his own younger brother. Now with one brother dead the others vow to take revenge on Lucas and the Marshal.

The father of the boys, Daniel Malakie (Buddy Hackett), comes to town to free his sons. At first the father appears upset at his boy's actions but when he goes to the jail house they beat-up Micah and then make their way to the McCain ranch to take care of Lucas. But things do not go as planned when the trio makes a terrible identification.

This is an all-out shoot'em up episode that really had no redeeming qualities. It was like the writer had all this violence and thought of a story to fit around the gunfire. Contrary to others, there was nothing special about the acting in this episode. It was a less that routine script that just did not have the usual flair that you expect from the series. Plus it would have been nice for Lucas to stick around to help Micah place the prisoner's in jail instead of riding off at the close of the show. Just Average.
