Who said Matt has to wait for the gunslinger to make the first move
29 May 2013 | by See all my reviews

When a known gunslinger named Sam Kertcher rides into Dodge he only has one thing on his mind- to kill Marshal Dillon. Seems that Sam is known for his fast draw and wants to make a name for himself by killing the well-known Marshal. But when the two face each other on Front Street, it is the Marshal that draws first and kills Sam.

Some weeks later a boy about sixteen rides into Dodge looking to buy a gun. The young man is Peyt Kertcher, brother of the dead gunslinger, and tells the Marshal that he is going to kill him for killing his brother. As Peyt is practicing and toning his gun skills it will only be a matter of time before the young boy believes he is ready to face Marshal Dillon.

This episode worked well in the thirty minute format. It was a compelling story that was entertaining to watch. Fredd Wayne is a perfect cast for the uncaring gunslinger that wants to make his mark by killing. He always seems to make the best out of any part that he plays. A nice tidy script that was enjoyable to watch. Good show.
