When Boyd asks Raylan what he used to shoot Tommy Banks, Raylan replies "SIG 226". However, the gun Raylan uses in that shooting is a clearly a striker-fired pistol, most likely the same Glock he uses throughout the entire episode. See more »

So predictable and frankly, just plain boring.
4 November 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I promised myself I would finish watching it. So I did. So OK, maybe towards the end it got a little better, but still, I did not like it at all. Correct me if i'm wrong, (becasue i've only seen this chapter) its about the typical man, in this case police, cop, whatever that try to outsmart the "bad guys" with words and what not to entertain the audience, but frankly, i'm just not buying it.

I like a good Action,Crime,Drama,Thriller; but when they show you already who committed the crime, doesn't it looking for the criminal loose the point already?

Summing it up, you know who did it. You know who is going to catch them (the cop with the funny hat and cowboy boots), and whatever happens in between is kinda sort of predictable too.
