Bret Maverick: [narrating] I wasn't going anywhere in particular at that time, except, maybe, into bankruptcy. In the last town, I'd put all my faith into two pair, and three tiny little deuces have wrecked my faith... and my bankroll.

Delightful Episode with Bret
27 October 2015 | by See all my reviews

This is a fine, fast paced, tongue-in-cheek episode. Bret Maverick arrives in "Apocalypse," a small town with the usual assortment of odd characters. Most of the humor comes from William Reynolds as the title character, Johnny Rain. He is a one dimensional boy scout/cowboy-hero type, who is nicer than nice, and spends his time doing good deeds. He is beloved by everybody in the town. It soon appears that Johnny does have a dark side that is brought out whenever he drinks.

William Reynolds looks a lot like James Dean, but lacks the fire and irony of Dean. He found success a decade later on the straight laced series the F.B.I. with another Maverick alumni, Efrem Zimbalist Jr. He develops a nice chemistry with Garner in this episode.
