Riding as passengers are the McCains and a Japanese nobleman and his servant who are visiting the West to learn more about the United States. When the foreigners are insulted by a pair of local hooligans, they demand satisfaction, and soon the four men face off in North Fork's dusty main street. Written by David Bassler

One of the poorest offerings in the series.
7 June 2014 | by kfo9494See all my reviews

After watching it is apparent that the writing has slipped so far that it was best that this was the last season for the series. In this offering we have a story that should have been trashed as two Japenesse travelers decide to spend the night in the lovely tourist town of North Fork when befriended by Lucas and Mark McCain.

While in North Fork the two Asian men are picked-on by two wild cowboys which will lead to a fight on the dusty street of the town. But it will not be a regular gun-fight that is a norm in North Fork but will be cowboy's fist taking on Asian karate moves. You can guess what transpires.

This story is not interesting in the least- not to mention the terrible stereotype (stated by another reviewer) and a plot that is unrealistic. All series will have a clunker from time-to-time but it seems, as the season progresses, that the series is losing its edge. And in this episode the edge is not in sight.
