  • Brisco and Bowler are hired by the Federal Government and put under the command of a General Quarry to rescue a newspaper heiress from a Mexican bandit. It turns out it is all a scam and when they try to do the right thing they are charged with treason.moreless

    9.0
    Great beginning to the final two part episode of The Adventures of Brisco County Jr.. Brisco and Bowler are put under the charge of a no nonsense Colonel named Marsh played by Pro Football great Terry Bradshaw.



    To do the retrieval of the young newspaper heiress Jennifer Hart played by Ely Pouget they assemble a group of specialists. They start with Pete Hutter played by John Pyper-Ferguson as he knows Carlos Falco the Mexican bandit played by Victor Rivers hideout. Next is the Professor Albert Wickwire played by John Astin for his many gadgets. Next Whip Morgan played by Jeff Phillips a gun they can trust. Finally Sheriff Aaron Vila the Elvis Sheriff played by Gary Hudson because he knows Kung Fu.



    All of this comes out at the Court Martial trial of Brisco and Bowler. Socrates shows up to help in their defense.



    There is something fishy going on and Brisco and Bowler were just trying to make sure justice was served. Let's see if they can the make a recovery and stop the treasonous General and his staff.



    Great first part to the final two part Brisco County Jr. series. Thanks for reading...moreless

    • Pete Hutter: That's the thing about yer Chinese Death Stars - an hour after you get killed, you're alive again.

    • Pete Hutter: Tiny, the only thing tinier than your brain is the likelihood that a mouth-breathing, psychopathic wall of stink weed like you is ever gonna get out of this dung-hood. You got "leper" stabbed on your forehead, just like everybody in that micro-cephalic, imbecile-raided, beer-sucking, cousin-marrying family of elephants that you come from.
