Storyline

When the bounty hunter Josh Randall visits the marshal's office in La Tunas, he steps straight into a tense situation, where the robber Andy Martin is trying to uncage his brother Carl from jail. Josh intervenes, but is knocked down. Carl kills the marshal, and the two brothers escape through the back door. In fleeing Carl is shot in his shoulder by Josh. When the townspeople find Josh and the dead marshal, they accuse Josh for the murder, as they are convinced that it was he who was trying to uncage Carl Martin to be able to get the award for him. Josh pulls his gun and flees through the back door. It is his intention to capture the brothers - dead or alive - and bring them back to La Tunsa, to get the award for Andy Martin, but also to prove his own innocence.

a great debut.
18 September 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Though not the pilot episode which was on the other Four Star series TRACKDOWN with Robert Culp. this first episode was a good start to a great series. With young actors like Nick Adams, Mike Landon and old veterans like Dabs Greer the course and character of the show was quickly found. Adams is underrated. See his performance in NO TIME FOR SERGEANTS. As an actor. Landon was stuck in teenage delinquent roles. McQueen was asserting himself as the king of cool. For me the template was set. Josh Randell would have sparse lines and and a vulnerability that was different with other western heroes on television at the time. At the end of the show when he explains his aloofness the music cue complements the manner and tone perfectly.'
