  • The episode has all the classic elements of a western action, science fiction, melodrama and humor. Oh, of course Briso gets to kiss a pretty girl. And by the way, Scorates' nick name is bunny.

    I love this episode because it shows another side to Socrates Poole. You meet his sister and find out that they were dirt poor growing up. They mother was instruct mental in them both becoming lawyers. She use to read to them the classics as children. In this episode Socrates’ sister has fallen in love through letters with a criminal. She breaks him out of prison and escapes with him only to find out that he has used her. He breaks her heart and leaves her on the road. Brisco goes after her and the criminal. Socrates gets a wagon and horse to go after her but he can not leave the comforts of home during his case. Now that the conflict is set up, we get our usually entertaining aspects of the show. As usual, Brisco gets tied up with the girl and they are about to die. The cliff hanger is great because it has so many elements of science. They are tied up with leather than has been wet and with the heat of the sun is tightening. The leather has been rugged to a gun pointed at them. When the leather gets tight enough the gun goes off. Not to worry Brisco finds a way out of it. What show is without a crazy invention from our professor? He has invented a driving suit. One of the criminals goes driving for US treasurer plates. In the end the criminals are caught. The US Treasurer thinks that Socrates' sister has master minded the recovery of the plates. Brisco makes sure the girl goes free. The episode has all the classic elements of a western action, science fiction, melodrama and humor. Oh, of course Briso gets to kiss a pretty girl. And by the way, Scorates' nick name is bunny.
