Goofs

A pair of brothers named Wiley and Luther are presented as the creators of denim. Denim had actually been developed in Nîmes, France more than half a century earlier and gained popularity when Levi Strauss began producing the first modern blue jeans in 1873, twenty years before the show's 1893 setting.

Brains (and fists) over bullets
10 May 2016 | by Mr-FusionSee all my reviews

Maverick lives on in 'Riverboat', which sees Brisco exchanges his gun for the long con. Part of the fun of this one is just seeing Bruce Campbell in Southern gentleman threads, and he makes a great card cheat, going up against Xander Berkeley (the "gentlemanliest" of the Bly gang, lethal intent masked by oozing charm). With everyone's role in the grand swindle - Dixie's subterfuge, Bowler's boxing match, Brisco helping out a fellow wronged man - there's a lot going on here. But it all comes together with a neat twist at the end, and it was a fun voyage.

7/10
