  • Characters struggle with the letter of the law

    10
    This episode highlights the type of character driven plotlines that made THE RIFLEMAN stand out from other run-of-the-mill westerns. We see Lucas struggling with the morality of his decision to turn free an outlaw for the release of Micah who is being held hostage. We see Micah using his typical grandfatherly sage advice to try to turn the conscience of a young outlaw who is assigned to guarding him prisoner. And just for a dose of realism, there is a minor subplot of Mark struggling in his homework to understand the mathematics of fractions. All in all.....a great episode!moreless
