What They Don't Teach in New Hampshire
28 May 2006 | by (Claremont,USA) – See all my reviews

Dave takes an eastern greenhorn (Ben Cooper) into his horse-driving crew. Trouble is kid has obsession with fast gun tricks that appalls old trail hands like Dave and Michael Ansara (in a strong performance). Some good touches, as usual-- teaching stumbling Dave to read, for one. Also, some wise words on how to stay alive among hardened cowboy types. Nonetheless, script is not very convincing in motivating Ben Cooper's sudden attitude swings. Trouble is that he appears little more than a plot device, a pitfall the series' emphasis on strong scripts usually manages to avoid. Notable for surprise shootout scene in town. Still, the episode lacks persuasiveness of best entries.
