Great episode!
8 October 2020 | by birdgoogSee all my reviews

Lol i think it's so funny (and cool!) that when a reviewer talks poop about the episode, almost no one finds their comments "to be useful"! HAA! WE LOVE GUNSMOKE! Don't F with our show! ... Well actually i have nothing useful to say either. Since i'm already here though ... check this out! i've never seen this episode before! In 54 years! Very exciting! i was missing a GEM! Usually i have respect for Dillon as a marshal, this story made me also appreciate the man. That's all. Great episode. Great dialogue (love the funny banter btw Matt and Doc!) Great characters. And just imho but really GREAT ENDING!
