The Cactus Switch
12 September 2017 | by Jim ColyerSee all my reviews

Beau is taking a lady to New Orleans and drops by to collect $1000 from Bart. Fay Spain is contemplating suicide, and the ever-present Edgar Buchanan threatens Bart. This has one of those inscrutable plots. I could not figure out how the episode got its name. The Mavericks were gregarious to a fault, living out of hotels and spending their time in casinos, saloons, banks and jails. White guys dress up as Indians, something that would be called "racist" today. The final two seasons foreshadow the silly comedies of the 1960s. Even when Maverick was in decline, it was still the best show on TV.
