Lucas McCain: Machines to take the place of horses?
Mark McCain: Well?

Predictable right from the get-go.
24 March 2014 | by kfo9494See all my reviews

Micah is out-of-town and leaves Nils Swenson in charge. Nils, liking the power of being in charge, places a notice up in town saying that guns are not allowed in town. Nils believes that he will stop all trouble in North Fork by taking all the guns.

Everything works out well until three outlaws ride into town. Mark happens to see a wanted poster with one of the bandits and the three bandits hold Nils and Mark in jail. When Lucas gets worried about Mark being out so late he rides into town only to find problems.

Not much to this episode as it was very predictable right from the start. And as expected, the show ends just as the viewer predicted about three minutes into the program. Lot of fluff in this show that just was not as entertaining as others. But it was nice to see Joe Higgins given a deep plot even if the plot was certain.
