We get a different kind of story in this episode that features a large Bible spouting man, Ira Scurlock, that carries a leather strap and believes that he was put on this earth to beat the wicked ways out of sinners. Along with Ira is his two sons that fear their father as he never spared the rod against either of them. But it is not just Ira's sons but any passing person that Ira believes is sinning. He ties them to a tree and whips them with his strap all while quoting verses that he feels meets the situation.
Chester got on the bad side when Ira claimed that Chester helped a sinner avoid his punishment. Well it is not long before Ira wants to take the sin out of Chester by cutting his hand off. When his boys jump Chester, Ira begins his own brand of justice to convict and punish Chester.
Not the most topical show but was one that was interesting enough to capture the viewer's attention. Peter Whitney was excellently cast as the preacher-type man that believes his justice is the only way. Even though this has never been a plot that I really enjoyed watching in a TV series, this program had many interesting view points. When the end of the show nears the viewer will not be disappointed. Nice watch.
