  • A man who likes to pick on young boys and old men for gun fights meets his match with Dan Troop.

    A "big bully" type of episode where one guy thinks he can bully the whole town. A man kills an old man (whose deaf). Marshall Dan Troop brings him but finds the laws in the town are very lax toward killers.

    Unlike the pilot episode, we get more of a feeling of how the Town Council operates in town...they suck. While they the town to be safe, they also let criminals walk free.

    Dan sees this and in the finale of the episodes comes up with a clever (but law breaking) way of eliminating the bad guy from town essentially bating him into a fight.

    This is a well acted as are the others. Deputy Johnny McKay is still ineffective as a deputy (unlike the pilot episode) we see "learning the ropes" in handling certain scenarios.

    It's too bad that most people won't see Lawman as Warner Bros hasn't officially released DVD videos of it but the videos are out there in the form of select vhs and other sources to watch the series.
