  • About a drunk in the old west who gets a reprieve--only to be caught in a gunfight with someone else who got the same reprieve--and winds up never being able to shoot again.

    It's a good episode with a good message, but it's kinda slow compared to the episodes I really liked. Martin Landau shows why he was a premiere actor and that he plays a good badguy. A young Doug McClure shows his penchant for old west shows. The writing is average, the plot is average, but the actors do shine. But what really makes this episode interesting is Henry J. Fate, the mysterious old codger with the wagon full of elixirs. "Fate" stepped in, according to one of the townsfolk. This episode is good, but could have been even better than that.
