Thanks for the Memories
11 September 2007 | by (Argentina) – See all my reviews

Terrific episode that leaves the camp that plagued many of the season three episodes behind. West is dispatched to help deliver a supply of smallpox vaccine to stop a deadly outbreak. Along the way the wagon he's in is ambushed and West takes a bullet on the side of the head that gives him amnesia.

The vaccine was stolen by the gang of an imprisoned Kansas City mobster (Ed Asner, very much like his "El Dorado" character) who offers to return the vaccine in exchange for his freedom and a pardon. More supplies of the vaccine are at least six days away, so the government makes a deal and asks Gordon to see it through. Gordon does so while looking for West.

Lots of action and a pretty decent story in this. Conrad is good as a amnesiac West, who may not have his memory, but still has his reflexes and his touch with the ladies. The only disappointing thing about this episode is how easily his memory comes back--when Artie is in jeopardy. But as a whole, a very enjoyable episode.
