Trivia

The title quotation is most likely taken from the Canute Laws of 1016 (England) written to govern ownership of Greyhounds (one figures prominently in the episode). The law read that if a Greyhound was found within the forest "the master or owner of the dog shall forfeit the dog and ten shillings to the king." See more »

sleeper zzzzzzz
29 September 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was a little offended with the Hollywood liberal spin. Before the the peace movement, Hollywood producers were already laying the groundwork for anti-guns and men of valor. Route 66; this episode especially is a sleeper. i was bored watching it and the only thing that stuck was the hidden anti-violence message. bringing in fugitives or defending yourself against a corrupt deputy is not unnecessary violence. it shouldn't be frowned against but accepted as necessary as real justice. Its not easy enforcing the law and it is very stressful. the producers of this show were only driving wedges between real justice and their own imaginations.
