Storyline

The Shiloh cook, Ah Sing, has decided to open a restaurant in Medicine Bow to support the mail order bride he wants. When he applies for a license for the restaurant with the Justice of Peace, Milo Temple, it is denied because he is Chinese and a very selective law in Medicine Bow. At the same time the ranchers have hired a new attorney, Luke Evers, to represent them when Grainger's preferred attorney, Thomas Manstead, isn't competent due to alcoholism. Evers talks Temple into signing an injunction for the ranchers. After hearing about Ah Sing's problem from Grainger, Evers recommends they do not push Temple or he might revoke the injunction. After being jailed for attempting to open the restaurant without a license, Grainger pushes Manstead to represent him. Temple hires Evans to prosecute setting up a lengthy battle between the two lawyers. The case stretches Manstead's abilities to the breaking point. Written by Anonymous

Too sweet
16 May 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Squishy episode sugars its humble hero Ah Sing and its bitter theme, the West's blind prejudice against the Chinese. Script denies Edmond O'Brien the fully rounded portrayal he was capable of by forgetting to explain why his alcoholic lawyer character took to the bottle in the first place. Charles Bickford provides the best reason to keep watching with his hickory hard performance as John Grainger. The square-dealing Grainger has little personal concern for Ah Sing, only grudgingly attending his former cook's departure from Shiloh. But he's outraged by the injustice done to him, and his conscience won't rest until he's done all he can to correct it. This was Bickford's last appearance in the series. His reign as Shiloh's benevolent monarch was much too brief.
