The Rousters

Show Summary

"Tough like the steel of the wheel That turns the world around Stand your ground when you're right, when you fight Just let 'em call your bluff You've got the edge when things get rough 'Cuz you're tough enough Every day you prove it Every day you try your luck Stand or fall, it's up to you Ain't no way to pass the buck You ain't in it for money And you're just having some fun You got a name, and the name of the game Is do it 'till you get it done You got to do it 'till you get it done 'Cuz you're tough like the steel of the wheel That turns the world around Stand your ground when you're right, when you fight Just let 'em call your bluff You've got the edge when things get rough 'Cuz you're tough enough" What's in a name? Everything for Wyatt Earp III, great grandson of the the infamous OK Corral lawman gunslinger dude. He didn't much care for his, which made him the laughing stock of everyone he'd meet when they asked what to call him. It especially didn't endear him to cops, who all thought he was being a wiseass until he showed them his ID. Wyatt was straight as an arrow and tough as a tank, while his brother Evan was the polar opposite -- a hipster doofus with a penchant for con artistry and bungled repairwork. If Evan had a motto, it would be, "If it ain't broke, fix it until it is." Their mother, Amanda, bought into the Earp legend hook, line and sinker. A Granny Moses type, she sought to carry on the family tradition with her trusty shotgun. And, for an old bag-cum-wannabe bounty hunter, she could certainly shoot with the best of them... even if she didn't necessarily hit her target. No matter how much Wyatt wanted to distance himself from his legacy, his job as the bouncer and right-hand man of the Sladetown Carnival made sure trouble followed him wherever he went. Wyatt's boss and Sladetown's owner, the heavy-set "Cactus" Jack Slade, was always on Wyatt's tail to make sure the customers kept the peace and didn't heckle the attractions. Keeping it all in the family, Slade's pretty daughter Ellen, Sladetown's travelling tutor slash lion tamer, also happened to be dating Wyatt. Meanwhile, his teenage son, Michael, had to cope with the Earp family eccentricities and his lack of a normal kid's life, as well as the fact that his father and his teacher were an item.moreless
