Predictable show that played out well
26 September 2012 | by kfo9494See all my reviews

In a very predictable episode, Johnny Cross has a price on his head for a crime that he said that he did not commit. However this does not forgive the bounty hunters all over the west seeking Johnny's reward.

When he gets word of his grandfather in poor health he tries to make it back to the old homestead. With two bounty hunters on his trail it will be difficult to make it back to his house to see his sister and grandfather.

The word reaches Dodge that Johnny may be back into the area and with Matt out-of-town and Festus recovering from sensitive surgery, Newly will be deputized and sent out to the Cross Farm looking for the return of Johnny. After finding Johnny wounded, by the bounty hunters, Newly will help him get back to health before carrying him back to Dodge. In the meantime the witness that named Johnny will take another look to make sure that the person he identified was indeed Johnny.

But the bounty hunters get to the witness first and it will be difficult for Newly to get Johnny off the charges of murder. Johnny must decide to face a jury or again flee where a bounty hunter will be behind every hill.

A predictable script that actually was not a bad watch. And with help from the humor from Doc and Festus, the show was a breeze to watch.
