Micah gets words of a killer coming toward North Fork.
28 September 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

While Lucas and Mark are on their way back to their ranch, they come across a drunken drummer, that also is a painter of signs, in need of help. It seems that his wagon wheel has broken and he is unable to make proper repairs. Lucas and Mark both take a shinning to the flamboyant man, Winslow Quince, as they get him on his way to North Fork.

Micah has received a telegraph from a local town that they have experienced robberies and murder from a man that may be heading to his town. When Winslow Quince runs up a tab in town, he starts paying with items that he has in his wagon. The items turn out be be related to the robberies and killing in the nearby town. Even Lucas has trouble believing that Quince is related to the crimes but we will all learn that Winslow Quince is smarter than people give him credit.

Even though the story was rather far-fetched, it still made for an enjoyable show. Kevin McCarthy did a nice job playing the wild and drunken painter that makes the character a somewhat likable chap. Not much meat to the story but still makes for a good watch.
