Episode Summary

EDIT
The Gleam of the Eagle Mind
AIRED:
When eccentric painter Juan Longorio paints a mural of a naked woman on the side of a barn it places him and Bronson in trouble with the owner, Sid Casper, and the city locals. Still, more problematic than defacing private property, the painting causes emotional anguish to Sid, the deputy sheriff Hud McCarver, and Will Hudson, because they all think the painting is a picture perfect representation of their respective wives. Art dealer Mr. Willoughby enters the scene and sheds new light on the dilemma.moreless

  • Bronson hooks up with a painter who paints a nude on the side of a barn

    8.9
    An episode that mixes moods nicely, as bronson meets and works with a bibulous mexican painter. what starts as the mere painting of a barn red turns into a scandal, as Jim's partner, Juan Longorio, paints a nude, refusing to content himself with just a bucket of red paint. Though some of the comedy is a tad broad; the yokels are a bit over-yokelly, the art dealer who wants to buy the barn is more than a little exaggerated, and Juan is suffering from an excess of joie de vivre, it all holds together nicely. Though one could do without the gratuitous quoting from St Augustine and discussions of Zapata with a wise old man, it's worth putting up with these monetary flaws for what is, overall, a fun episode.moreless
