Just did not cause the interest that was expected.
13 December 2014 | by kfo9494See all my reviews

Even though this episode was nicely done by the actors involved, the story really did not stir much interest in my opinion. The plot has been played out many times in nearly all western episodes where a 'fancy lad' arrives in town and the next thing you know he has been insulted and challenges another to a duel.

In this show, Cesare Danova plays a Italian Count that just happens to arrive on a stage in North Fork. When a local, Sid Groder (Jack Elam), insults the ways of the Count he is challenged to a duel. And with Lucas McCain being the temporary Marshal of the town, Lucas will make sure that the duel is on the up-and-up. But expect surprises when the duel takes place.

Danova and Elam seemed perfectly cast in this story which only adds interest to the show but it just did not cause much excitement for the viewer. With the high marks for the episode, I felt somewhat disappointed after watching. It was not a bad show but one that needed something other than a routine script.
