Solid Entry
30 April 2006 | by (Claremont,USA) – See all my reviews

Despite the single set and bare-bones budget, outline of series' offbeat approach is evident from this initial entry. Dave rides toward saloon and is accosted by Christian soul-saver, whose facial warts look as though the plague is upon her. He politely rejects salvation, thus setting theme of episode. Show is notable for suggesting sado-masochistic relationship between 'bargirl' Jeff and her 'employer' Jeffrey Toone, which results in an unusually adult rendering of Jeff's emotional makeup. Also notable for especially brutal brawl between polished boxer Toone and no-holds-barred Dave; best line "This ain't no game"-- Dave's reply for fighting dirty. Show is weakened by gratuitous gun-play between Dave and half-breed barkeep, the only point of which appears chance to show off stupid scoped rifle that is supposed to be series' selling point (not Peckinpah's idea). Thank goodness Peckinpah soon gets his way and rifle dies quick death. Episode is nicely framed by departure past same soul-saver who now has something in common with Dave.
