Party pooper
9 December 2016 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

This episode is a reunion of sorts. Guest star Lee Van Cleef and Neville Brand played a pair of bank robbers part of a gang in one of my favorite noir films Kansas City Confidential. Here Van Cleef plays a mysterious man who arrives in town gunning for Captain Parmalee just when the men are putting together a surprise party for his four year anniversary taking over the Laredo post for the Texas Rangers.

This was one of the weakest episodes I've seen of the show. Given how menacing Lee Van Cleef is here and in just about every other part I've ever seen him in I can't buy that he would fall for the psychological warfare the Rangers are playing on him. The ending is definitely not in line with the Lee Van Cleef image.

This episode only for those who are devoted Laredo fans.
