Better Than Spocks Brain, But That is A Low Target
22 December 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Gene L Coon who wrote some other episodes of West & several episodes of Star Trek (including Spock's Brain ugh) in the 1960's wrote the script for this one. It is actually a pretty decent outing.

Keenan Wynne is a corrupt former Army officer who is intent on taking over Baja, California and the entire south west. This is a pretty common plot during the first season of West, even Dr. Loveless tries to do this. It looks like he is going to succeed for a while as he catches West after West infiltrates his operation.

Artie shows up a an arms dealers trying to make a crooked deal to equip Wynnes force and eventually West & Artie stop them cold. There is some decent stunt work & more than a few blanks fired in this episode as the episode moves along at a pretty brisk pace.
