Quotes

Narrator: When Hoby Gilman regained consciousness, he had a man-sized headache and very little else. His gun was gone, along with his horse and the stranger he had befriended. A bitter reward for an act of compassion.

It's okay...
5 November 2011 | by mitchrmpSee all my reviews

Hoby is a nice guy, so nice that he frees the murderer's leg from a bear trap. The trouble is that Hoby didn't know the stranger was a murderer. The stranger, to show his gratitude, hits Hoby over the head, steals his gun and horse, and put his leg in the bear trap. Hoby soon learns that the man is coming back to take the granddaughter of Hoby's savior...But is that really what he's coming back for?

There weren't too many characters in this episode. It just took place in the woods for the most part and was pretty predictable as to what was going to happen. I'll give it an 8 because it's Trackdown, but nothing special here...
