    with this episode "Bronson" is beginning to hit its stride. After the heavy-handedness of "The Runner' we have a light, funny, but heart-felt episode. Forced to dismantle his bike after a local yokel screws it up, Bronson's presence - more particularly, that of his bike - inspires former rider Alex, played by keenan Wynn, to repair his ancient machine, against the wishes of his wife. The interplay between Parks and Wynn is great fun to watch, and even the obvious jokes come off. So the first two episodes cover the two extremes of the show - the brooding, sensitive Bronson, and the one who recognizes that it's all in fun.moreless
