Steve McQueen good guy/bad guy
10 September 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

So this episode finds Hoby half way between Porter and Jacksboro. At the end, we learn he's still stationed in Porter...Hoby is camping one night, planning to ride into town for Mal Cody the next day, when he's held at gun point. The culprit steals Hoby's gun, badge, identification, and money then poses as Hoby and breaks Mal out of jail.

It's really no secret, but Mal has a twin brother named Wes, and it's actually WES who breaks his brother out of jail. Of course, Hoby learns later that there were twins...

In spite of the fact that the Sheriff ends up 'bad,' I scratch my head wondering what the point of all this was? They were identical twins (both parts played by McQueen himself) so what was gained by posing as Hoby? Obviously Hoby would not look like Mal...I don't know, but it was still a good episode.
