Okay Entry
24 June 2011 | by dougdoepkeSee all my reviews

Tiller Evans (Carey) is one mean plug-ugly who beats up his dancehall girl Boni. Then comes to Dodge, suave, well-dressed gambler Marcus (Cassidy) who takes an immediate liking to Boni; at the same time, Matt doesn't know whether to trust the slickster or not. One thing for sure, there's going to be trouble when Tiller finds out about Boni and Marcus. So why don't they just leave town before Tiller finds out. That's the puzzlement.

Okay entry featuring two distinctive actors—Carey and Cassidy. Too bad the script doesn't give more screen time to cult figure Carey, a truly disturbing presence. A showdown between him and his physical opposite, Cassidy, would have been a treat. Episode is also notable for Chester's mooncalfing over banker Bodkin's daughter, and Doc's fantastic tale of a barefoot girl high up in the mountains. Both are a hoot. These humorous bits are tributes to Weaver and Stone who did so much to make the series such a smashing success.
