After viewing, it was a waste of time
14 August 2012 | by kfo9494See all my reviews

After watching this episode I am torn between two emotions. One side was interested in the show- while the other side was dissatisfied by the way the show ends. And after watching, it felt like a waste of time to have sat through the entire 50 minutes.

When a poor beggar is believed to have murdered a local saloon-maid, the citizens in the town take the law into their own hands and lynch the beggar.

The yellow-streaked sheriff of the town sent for Marshal Dillon and a judge, but left town when a local wealthy big-shot tells him to get leave. Thus the beggar is hanged before Dillon or the judge can make it to the small town.

The show is doing well at this time as we have an interesting developing plot. But for some reason the show seemed to have taken a left turn when another plot develops that is as interesting as drinking water.

The beggar had a teenage son and now the mostly corrupt drunk judge feels remorse for the boy. And the viewer is pulled into the dialog between the judge and the boy which is not interesting in the least.

By the time the show ends, we had some type of trial that brings no justice to either side of the argument. It felt like the show was for naught. Which is not a glowing review for any show.
