Well, having watched the final four episodes of the series, all of which
involved Shenandoah finding somebody who knew his name and then killed
them (well, he or somebody else) before they could talk, I saw the pilot
episode today.

Shenandoah finds somebody who knows his real name and ... kills him
before he can talk.

Just ... wow.

Nothing in this pilot made sense, from the writing to the staging, and
then I saw why: Executive Producer Fred Frieberger.

So A Man Soon To Be Called Shenandoah rides into town, registers at the
hotel, and asks if the guy he's meeting, Sam Elkins, has shown up yet.
Since he hasn't, A Man Soon To Be Called Shenandoah goes across the
street for a hot bath. 3 bad guys spot him. The main one wants him
dead. He breaks into the bath and gets a bot of boiling water in his
face, knocked flat, and is helpless. So A Man Soon To Be Called
Shenandoah, having won the fight, inexplicably knocks down an innocent
guy, steals his gun, and runs outside half naked to have it out with the
other two guys that he has NO way of knowing are there, steals a horse,
and rides out of town with them shooting at him. Later he's on foot
leading said horse through a sandstorm, and the first bad guy, having
changed his clothes and gotten ahead of A Man Soon To Be Called
Shenandoah on foot, shoots him again. A couple trappers find him and
bring him to presumably a different town, where Miss Kitty takes care of
him (she has a barmaid for every 4 customers!). A kindly doctor tells
Miss Kitty that now that he's removed the bullet in A Man Soon To Be
Called Shenandoah's shoulder, he'll be fine, and then ... proceeds to
remove the bullet from A Man Soon To Be Called Shenandoah's shoulder,
because he hadn't actually done it yet! A Man Soon To Be Called
Shenandoah wakes up, having lost his ... eyesight. Wait? What??? The
kindly doctor says it must be because of the sandstorm, and reaches into
his bag and pulls out an open glass test tube full of sulphuric acid,
because waving sulphuric acid in your eyes cures blindness! And ... IT
WORKS!!
A Man Soon To Be Called Shenandoah mostly lays around griping about not
knowing his name, so the kindly doctor dubs him Shenandoah. When A Man
Now Called Shenandoah asks why, kindly doctor says it's because it's the
name of the most beautiful piece of land God ever created. Yeah, this
show is now officially totally creepy.
Anyway, the main bad guy wanders in and challenges A Man Called
Shenandoah to a gunfight. Realizing the bad guy knows his name, A Man
Called Shenandoah promptly kills him and then rides off despite Miss
Kitty's entreaties for him to stay, totally at random, to find out his
real name. Um, one guy already walked in that knew you. Wouldn't this
be a fine base of operations?

That's an... amazing review. I've never watched an episode. How did this
get greenlit?

Thanks

Well, Robert Horton had just come off big fame on WAGON TRAIN. And it
can't have been very expensive; while it looks good, it's black and
white, and Hollywood was still lousy with western sets and garb.

I've been looking forward to seeing this for years, and now ...

It doesn't even have the advantage of Coronet Blue (made about the same
time) in that the showrunner for that one told us the backstory of the
amnesiac character. So we'll never know if the clews line up or make
any sense.

I'll try a few more, but I'm not sure I'll be able to complete the
series.

They probably want to appeal to the remaining baby-boomers who still want cowboy-and-indians-sounding storylines from back then that they grew up with.

Yeah, I mentioned it in the WDYW thread. It had such potential but turned out
so mediocre that I assumed it was in part due to stripping.

I guess somebody thought we should learn something about Andy. I
thought it was cruel of him to keep an old dog in an apartment he never
goes to. I also don't know *why* he never goes there - how can he be
busy at the station when everybody else goes home at night? And I
didn't see any reason for him to to go with her!

Yeah, I don't recall him ever mentioning haivng a dog on this show, so it
came as a suprise to me and I wondered about just how late he works. Maybe
it was hyperbole?

I got the impression it was more nostalga and when he met her before her
show, he realized this when he remembered why they broke up, but I swear
parts were missing from this b/c someone mentioned the "dungaree wearers"
and the note he left had something that was obviously a joke between them
that we were sppd to understand.

This is at least *supposed* to be the version of the show put out by

of the original music, IIRC. (Still no Beatles, Stones and a handful
of others.)

Episode 2: SURVIVAL

This week's gripping tale begins with Shenandoah riding his horse
through deep snow, in sequences that will be used behind the opening and
ending credits throughout the series. Suddenly the horse collapses! In
a truly disgusting shot, Shenandoah tests the animal's leg and it bends
in a place IT SHOULDN'T POSSIBLY BEND STOP DOING THAT GAH. He shoots it
dead.
OPENING CREDITS
Um, these are the same shots of him riding in the snow that we *just*
saw.
Robert Horton sings SHENANDOAH:
Oh Shenandoah
You're doomed to wander
On beyond
This land so lonely
Oh Shenandoah
You're doomed to wander
So roam
In search of home
'cross this land
So lonely

Seriously, how long did they work on this before they decided there was
no rhyme for 'lonely' and just gave up?

The good news is, it's *not* produced by Fred Frieberger, who apparently
only did the pilot and 2 other eps before they fired him.

So he walks to a way station run by Corbin Bernson's crazy mother and
inhabited by one crazy guy and one really really crazy guy (who may have
seen Shenandoah before). She agrees to sell him her horse for $10.
They mention President Hayes, which is a real problem, as he was POTUS
from 1877 to 1881, and the outside reading says this is taking place in
1870.

A Man Called Shenandoah rides his shiny new horse to the town he was
looking for and asks for Sam Elkins (I *think* that's the guy he was
supposed to meet in the pilot - continuity!). The town is almost
deserted except for a cranky old stable keeper and a spooky kid. The
kid wanders into A Man Called Shenandoah's bedroom in the middle of the
night. Before it can get too creepy, the kid tells A Man Called
Shenandoah he saw him in town the year before, wearing a gun, with Sam
Elkins, but conveniently doesn't remember A Man Called Shenandoah's real
name. He agrees to take A Man Called Shenandoah to Elkins, but on the
street they run into maddened villagers with pitchforks and torches and
a stagecoach with the two crazy guys from the way station and they
immediately accuse him of killing Corbin Bernsen's mother. A Man Called
Shenandoah's stuntman tries to escape on horseback, but a couple dozen
people with torches drag him down screaming to lynch him! How come
there are only 2 people in this town in daylight, but 2 dozen in the
streets at night, including dance hall girls?

After the commercial break, some big muckety muck shows up and stops the
hanging. Corbin's mom's body is in the stagecoach. Muckety Muck (who
turns out to be the Sheriff) tends A Man Called Shenandoah's wounds in
the jail. A Man Called Shenandoah tells the Sheriff his sob story.
Suddenly the angry villagers attack, throwing torches through the glass
windows! Where do lonely out of the way ghost towns get glass windows
in 1870 anyway? The Sheriff wakes Igor, the town drunk, from his cell,
deputizes him, and tells him to get his animals. A Man Called
Shenandoah spots Tate in the crowd, and tells the Sheriff he was with
Corbin's mother when he left! (He was? I never saw him) Tate's an old
beau of ma Bernsen. A Man Called Shenandoah leaps through the one
unbroken window in the jail (Where do lonely out of the way ghost towns
get glass windows in 1870 anyway?) with a double barreled shotgun and
tells the villagers he can kill four of them with his two barrels before
then can kill him with their two dozen rifles and torches. He forces
Tate to confess at shotgun point! Tate tries to shoot A Man Called
Shenandoah in the back! A Man Called Shenandoah whirls, and, cavalierly
holding the shotgun under one arm, blows Tate all the way across the
street, because, physics.

With that all taken care of, A Man Called Shenandoah asks where he can
find Sam Elkins. Oh, him, says the Sheriff. I've got his body in the
back of my wagon. Did I forget to mention that? His partner, a man
named Lasso, shot him and headed off to Silverton. (How does the
Sheriff know any of this, and why didn't A Man Called Shenandoah mention
Elkins to the Sheriff as the one man who could identify him before? How
come the kid is the only person in town that ever saw him before? Why
doesn't he question crazy crazy guy?)

For no reason the little kid suddenly walks up with A Man Called
Shenandoah's horse. Wait, where was the kid taking A Man Called
Shenandoah before when he said he was leading him to Elkins??? A Man
Called Shenandoah rides off into the dark and the huge Klieg light in
the distance (was it BTR complaining about that just the other day?)

Why doesn't he take roads? Why doesn't he take the damned stagecoach?
Why doesn't he have a meal or spend the night?

In the pilot he was in Lamont New Mexico. Now he's riding in the dead
of winter in the dead of night to Silverton Colorado? Why doesn't he
take a train?

Cue the end credits:

Episode 2: SURVIVAL
This week's gripping tale begins with Shenandoah riding his horse
through deep snow, in sequences that will be used behind the opening and
ending credits throughout the series. Suddenly the horse collapses! In
a truly disgusting shot, Shenandoah tests the animal's leg and it bends
in a place IT SHOULDN'T POSSIBLY BEND STOP DOING THAT GAH. He shoots it
dead.
OPENING CREDITS
Um, these are the same shots of him riding in the snow that we *just*
saw.
Oh Shenandoah
You're doomed to wander
On beyond
This land so lonely
Oh Shenandoah
You're doomed to wander
So roam
In search of home
'cross this land
So lonely
Seriously, how long did they work on this before they decided there was
no rhyme for 'lonely' and just gave up?
'Only.'
Post by anim8rfsk
The good news is, it's *not* produced by Fred Frieberger, who apparently
only did the pilot and 2 other eps before they fired him.
So he walks to a way station run by Corbin Bernson's crazy mother and
inhabited by one crazy guy and one really really crazy guy (who may have
seen Shenandoah before). She agrees to sell him her horse for $10.
They mention President Hayes, which is a real problem, as he was POTUS
from 1877 to 1881, and the outside reading says this is taking place in
1870.
A Man Called Shenandoah rides his shiny new horse to the town he was
looking for and asks for Sam Elkins (I *think* that's the guy he was
supposed to meet in the pilot - continuity!). The town is almost
deserted except for a cranky old stable keeper and a spooky kid. The
kid wanders into A Man Called Shenandoah's bedroom in the middle of the
night. Before it can get too creepy, the kid tells A Man Called
Shenandoah he saw him in town the year before, wearing a gun, with Sam
Elkins, but conveniently doesn't remember A Man Called Shenandoah's real
name. He agrees to take A Man Called Shenandoah to Elkins, but on the
street they run into maddened villagers with pitchforks and torches and
a stagecoach with the two crazy guys from the way station and they
immediately accuse him of killing Corbin Bernsen's mother. A Man Called
Shenandoah's stuntman tries to escape on horseback, but a couple dozen
people with torches drag him down screaming to lynch him! How come
there are only 2 people in this town in daylight, but 2 dozen in the
streets at night, including dance hall girls?
After the commercial break, some big muckety muck shows up and stops the
hanging. Corbin's mom's body is in the stagecoach. Muckety Muck (who
turns out to be the Sheriff) tends A Man Called Shenandoah's wounds in
the jail. A Man Called Shenandoah tells the Sheriff his sob story.
Suddenly the angry villagers attack, throwing torches through the glass
windows! Where do lonely out of the way ghost towns get glass windows
in 1870 anyway? The Sheriff wakes Igor, the town drunk, from his cell,
deputizes him, and tells him to get his animals. A Man Called
Shenandoah spots Tate in the crowd, and tells the Sheriff he was with
Corbin's mother when he left! (He was? I never saw him) Tate's an old
beau of ma Bernsen. A Man Called Shenandoah leaps through the one
unbroken window in the jail (Where do lonely out of the way ghost towns
get glass windows in 1870 anyway?) with a double barreled shotgun and
tells the villagers he can kill four of them with his two barrels before
then can kill him with their two dozen rifles and torches. He forces
Tate to confess at shotgun point! Tate tries to shoot A Man Called
Shenandoah in the back! A Man Called Shenandoah whirls, and, cavalierly
holding the shotgun under one arm, blows Tate all the way across the
street, because, physics.
With that all taken care of, A Man Called Shenandoah asks where he can
find Sam Elkins. Oh, him, says the Sheriff. I've got his body in the
back of my wagon. Did I forget to mention that? His partner, a man
named Lasso, shot him and headed off to Silverton. (How does the
Sheriff know any of this, and why didn't A Man Called Shenandoah mention
Elkins to the Sheriff as the one man who could identify him before? How
come the kid is the only person in town that ever saw him before? Why
doesn't he question crazy crazy guy?)
For no reason the little kid suddenly walks up with A Man Called
Shenandoah's horse. Wait, where was the kid taking A Man Called
Shenandoah before when he said he was leading him to Elkins??? A Man
Called Shenandoah rides off into the dark and the huge Klieg light in
the distance (was it BTR complaining about that just the other day?)
Why doesn't he take roads? Why doesn't he take the damned stagecoach?
Why doesn't he have a meal or spend the night?
In the pilot he was in Lamont New Mexico. Now he's riding in the dead
of winter in the dead of night to Silverton Colorado? Why doesn't he
take a train?

Ep 3 - THE FORT

A Man Called Shenandoah rides to a fort with arrows sticking out of it
all over the place. He asks to see Warren Oates ... seems A Man Called
Shenandoah had put an ad in a Denver newspaper three months ago asking
if anybody recognized him, and Oates replied; neither kept a copy. But
the Fort commandant immediately throws A Man Called Shenandoah in the
brig with Oates, telling him he'll be court-martialed, dead, and buried,
before proof of what he's saying can arrive from Denver.

Produced by Fred Freiberger, so you know it's not going to be a good one.

Oates claims to know who A Man Called Shenandoah is but won't tell him
until he figures out what it's worth. The Fort's own crazy Dr. Moreau
likes to experiment on prisoners. He makes A Man Called Shenandoah
blind and then waits to see how long he got better (clearly FF has a
thing for making his protagonists go blind, as this is twice in as many
episodes).

Apparently Oates sold rifles to the Apaches and The Fort assume A Man
Called Shenandoah was in on it with him since he rode up and asked for
Oates.

Oates says he and A Man Called Shenandoah were in an Army hospital
together. The nurse who took care of them is now Oates' wife. He tells
A Man Called Shenandoah that if he takes the money he's saved to the
wife, the wife will tell him his name.

They let Oates signal his real partner to come in, but the Apaches
already got him.

Oates gives A Man Called Shenandoah the instructions on how to find his
wife, and the firing squad executes him.

The Court Martial begins. The Major in charge of The Fort is bound and
determined to murder A Man Called Shenandoah as quickly as possible lest
the case be moved back East and the press get ahold of what a shithole
he's running.

The rigged tribunal sentences A Man Called Shenandoah to be executed one
hour after sunrise the next day.

A Man Called Shenandoah breaks out of the guardhouse, grabs a rifle, and
confronts the Major in his office! He hands the Major the rifle. The
major says this changes nothing, so A Man Called Shenandoah hurls
himself through a glass window, just as a patrol returns with Oates real
partner.

As the now vindicated A Man Called Shenandoah prepares to leave, Dr.
Moreau asks why he doesn't stay and let the Dr. experiment on him. A
Man Called Shenandoah says he's got Oates money and note, and is off to
find the wife who knows who A Man Called Shenandoah really is.

A Man Called Shenandoah rides away from The Fort, with the writers
having completely forgotten that the entire place is surrounded by
Apaches that murder anybody trying to leave.

They haven't started singing THE MAN I SOUGHT IS DEAD AND BURIED yet,
although it would certainly be appropriate. In fact there are no ending
vocals at all.

It will be interesting to see if they actually follow up on this.

Ep 4: THE CALLER

At dusk or night, A Man Called Shenadoah rides into town. Wind blows,
lightening flashes. He arrives at the door of a lawyer. Suddenly there
are female screams and gunshots! A Man Called Shenadoah breaks in! A
man lies dead, and incredibly annoying child actress Katie Sweet sits on
the stairs staring blankly. Predictably, a guy with a shotgun shows up
and arrests A Man Called Shenadoah for murder! Nobody thinks to check
his unfired gun to see if it was unfired!

Robert Horton sings A Man Called Shenadoah

Then 5 minutes of commercial (no, seriously) for Plexaderm wrinkle
remover.

And then something worse - Produced by Fred Freiberger!

A Man Called Shenadoah has been pacing in jail for 2 days because he
won't tell the Sheriff why he wanted to see the lawyer. The incredibly
annoying child actress Katie Sweet won't speak. They won't let her
visit the jail so they let A Man Called Shenadoah out to visit her (like
that's better). Even sitting mute and comatose, incredibly annoying
child actress Katie Sweet is incredibly annoying. Apparently A Man
Called Shenadoah met her before in her father's house in Prescott. I
have no idea how he knows this, but apparently she knows his name.
They're going to go through all the lawyer's papers and have A Man
Called Shenadoah sign every name that's on every one of them to see if
they match. They don't. That's a lot of detective work from a Sheriff
who won't even check to see if a gun's been fired. Later, mysterious
feet enter the cell area! A mysterious hand extinguishes the light! A
mysterious figure fires shots into A Man Called Shenadoah's cell!

After an annoying MY PILLOW ad, A Man Called Shenadoah and the Sheriff
speak. The Sheriff saw nothing. A Man Called Shenadoah is suspicious.
The Sheriff agrees to let A Man Called Shenadoah out as long as A Man
Called Shenadoah promises not to leave town, because, plot advancement.
Later, A Man Called Shenadoah rides up to the doctor's house to see
incredibly annoying child actress Katie Sweet. While waiting for her, A
Man Called Shenadoah passes time by playing the piano. Or trying to. A
Man Called Shenadoah asks Phyllis from Mary Tyler Moore "didn't your
husband the doctor tell you I had amnesia?" Why would he have had to,
when she was standing right there when A Man Called Shenadoah told him!?
Phyllis has an inexplicable hissing fit yelling about darkness and
guilt. Suddenly she blurts out that she's been sleeping with the dead
lawyer! Incredibly annoying child actress Katie Sweet hears this and
goes back to her room, comatose again! A Man Called Shenadoah tries to
tempt her with a variety of 1880 toys. He says they should take her to
her own room. Phyllis tells him that they got everything from her house
and made this room into an exact duplicate of her room at home because
WTF? They decide that if they go back to the murder house where A Man
Called Shenadoah had been before his memory might return! Except A Man
Called Shenadoah had never BEEN to the murder house, he met the victim
in far off Prescott! A Man Called Shenadoah says the killer can only be
one of two men! Mostly because there are only two men in the cast. The
doctor asks why, and A Man Called Shenadoah says because he told Phyllis
to tell those two men that incredibly annoying child actress Katie Sweet
almost spoke to him, therefore only those two men could be the killer!
Um ... even if that made any sense at all, both men were STANDING RIGHT
THERE when incredibly annoying child actress Katie Sweet almost spoke to
A Man Called Shenadoah. A Man Called Shenadoah give the doctor his gun!
Struggles ensue! Lamps are broken! Shots are fired! Incredibly
annoying child actress Katie Sweet screams! The Sheriff enters and
takes the doctor away! Katie Sweet is all cured! She remembers
Shenandoah! But she's forgotten his name. But she remembers he'd been
in Tucson and carried an octagonal lucky coin. Dear God - upon hearing
the news of an eight sided gold coin, he says, and I quote:

Eight sided gold coin? I think I heard about that, they were made back
in '53, '54, in a private mint out of San Franciso, worth about $50.
You might have been a millionaire mister!

Gee, how amazingly convenient for the Sheriff to just *know* that!

There's some additional dialog that proves they lost track of how many
characters were in this episode, which is tough, given that there were a
grand total of 5.

A Man Called Shenadoah rides away. They still aren't singing THE MAN I
SOOOOOGHT IS DEAD AND BURRRRRIED although once again it would be
completely fitting. No ending theme vocals yet either. Fred Freiberger
must hate them. I hate Fred Freiberger.

For some incredibly annoying reason, after running the first 4 eps of A
Man Called Shenandoah in order, GetTV showed 19 and 28 this weekend.
Grr.

But the four eps scheduled for next week are 6 through 8, so I think
I'll stockpile these for later, in case the regular run skips 'em.

Episode 5 THE DEBT

Note: GetTV is running the 4:3 image stretched to 16:9 so everybody is
short and squat and it can't be corrected on the viewer's end.

A Man Called Shenandoah is walking down the street. Paul Carr (who went
crazy and got drowned or eaten by dinosaurs half a dozen times on Voyage
to the Bottom of the Sea, not to mention strangled by ESP on Star Trek)
is sweeping, sees A Man Called Shenandoah and jumps him! General Kirk
from The Time Tunnel breaks it up! The Sheriff takes them all in, as A
Man Called Shenandoah claims Carr has the wrong man (how does he KNOW?
And wouldn't an amnesiac searching for his identity listen to *anybody*
good or bad?).

Robert Horton sings "A Man Called Shenandoah"

Commercial for and by scammers.

In the jail, A Man Called Shenandoah asks to talk to Carr. Carr says A
Man Called Shenandoah cut his brother down like a stalk of cotton in the
war! Waving a sword wearing blue! Carr can't seek revenge 'cause the
Sheriff has him locked up, so General Kirk promises to do it for him.

A Man Called Shenandoah finally tells the Sheriff about his amnesia. If
Carr would give him the details of the battle he could look it up at the
war department.

The telegraph operator shows the Sheriff a telegram sent by General
Kirk, who sent for a hired gun! It's Harry Dean Stanton!!

A Man Called Shenandoah confronts General Kirk to try to get him to call
off the killer.

Harry Dean stalks A Man Called Shenandoah on the streets while the
little children play act Johnny Rebs murdering Blue Bellys (from a war
that ended half a decade before they were born? A Man Called Shenandoah
goes into the bar for a drink, where the menfolk are arm wrestling and
bragging about who won the war. Apparently everybody in town has taken
sides because A Man Called Shenandoah is there.

Carr says all he remembers is that the battle might have been in
Mississippi about 4 months before the South surrendered; not enough
information to look it up.

A Man Called Shenandoah bravely tried to sneak out of town, but Harry
Dean Stanton catches and confronts him! A Man Called Shenandoah easily
outdraws him! Harry Dean's as dead as if he'd been chest burstered!
General Kirk confirms Harry Dean drew first, and A Man Called Shenandoah
rides out of town, as for the first time we get a custom episode ending
song!

My past remains
Lost in the shadows
Once more I roam
This land so lonely
Oh Shenandoah
You're doomed to wander
So roam
In search of home

So lonely

Episode 6 - Obion - 1866

A Man Called Shenandoah arrives somewhere on a train. He sees a drummer
who looks suspiciously like somebody from The Dukes of Hazzard looking
back, startled to see him! The drummer is getting on the next car on
the train. Instead of just going down to the end of the car to meet
him, A Man Called Shenandoah lowers the window and starts shouting,
causing the drummer to get back *off* the train. By the time A Man
Called Shenandoah figures it out, the train is moving again, so a stunt
double with much less hair throws himself off the moving train!

Robert Horton sings "A Man Called Shenandoah"

After an ad for something called "A Man Called Shenandoah" A Man Called
Shenandoah walks into town. A weird guy on a porch says hello. They
chat. Luckily the strange guy runs the hotel where the drummer stayed
and tells A Man Called Shenandoah (maybe) his name. Suddenly the
Sheriff comes out with a gun, accusing A Man Called Shenandoah of being
Bill Toland, wanted in Denver! Having told the Sheriff this, the
drummer rented a horse and hightailed it out of town, which doesn't make
the Sheriff suspicious at all, and, wait, how do you return a rented
horse if you left town? Can you return it in the next town like a
rental car? The Sheriff tries to lock up A Man Called Shenandoah in a
jail refreshingly made of chicken wire instead of bars, and gets
clobbered for his trouble. A Man Called Shenandoah steals the Sheriff's
horse and chases after the drummer! The crazy hotel guy, due to the law
of conservation of characters, is down at the telegraph office reading
aloud the wire that says A Man Called Shenandoah isn't Toland. A Man
Called Shenandoah arrives at a way station where they guy has been paid
to lie about which way the Drummer went. A Man Called Shenandoah beats
the information out of him. Except all he finds out is that 'north' is
the wrong direction. The chase continues! A Man Called Shenandoah
finds a cigar butt the drummer tossed aside and presses it against his
wrist to find out how hot it still is (ouch). Soon he's sighted the
drummer, and the chase begins in earnest! The drummer gets far enough
ahead he can string a triprope and trip A Man Called Shenandoah's stolen
horse, knocking A Man Called Shenandoah cold!

Commercial for the CHILL CHEST, the best way to keep drone ice cream
cold.

That night, A Man Called Shenandoah finally comes to, all trussed up by
a fire. The drummer thought A Man Called Shenandoah had been dead for
four years and ... doesn't know his name. Bah. A Man Called Shenandoah
tells the drummer he only remember 3 months back. Four years ago was
the fall of '66 which makes this 1870 which is a problem as we've
already been told it's the 1880s in an earlier episode. Flashbacks
ensue! The drummer was the Sheriff of Obion. He sees a wanted man on
the street in the night in the rain. Men in the street shoot each other
while the cowardly Sheriff hides! A Man Called Shenandoah bursts in the
Sheriff's office demanding action! The Sheriff gives A Man Called
Shenandoah his gun and tells him to take care of the killer! A Man
Called Shenandoah agrees and promises to come back and kill the Sheriff
personally. The Sheriff splits town. Wherever Obion is it's 700 miles
away. A Man Called Shenandoah rides there on a different horse and ...
as I suspected, it's now a ghost town. A Man Called Shenandoah finds
the graveyard and the grave of the killer "he drew second on October 1,
1866" but doesn't look for the grave of his friend Huey which might
actually yield some clews. A Man Called Shenandoah rides off singing

The man I sought
That day was buried
Deep within
The land so lonely
Oh Shenandoah
You're doomed to wonder
I'll roam
In search of home
'cross the land
so lonely

Episode 6 - Obion - 1866
A Man Called Shenandoah arrives somewhere on a train.
Suddenly the
Sheriff comes out with a gun, accusing A Man Called Shenandoah of being
Bill Toland, wanted in Denver! Having told the Sheriff this, the
drummer rented a horse and hightailed it out of town, which doesn't make
the Sheriff suspicious at all, and, wait, how do you return a rented
horse if you left town?
This sounds like a case where the rental price should be equal to the
sales price. That being said, the Western Union folks had horses that
went one direction one week and then maybe a week or two later went back
the other direction...so maybe you can rent a horse and then some other
guy will need a one way trip in the opposite direction and can rent it
back to its original owner?

There are some answers here:

"'Livery stables in the West were less formal than those in large
cities and could offer some options when it came to rentals. If you
were a stranger you could be required to pay in advance an amount that
could equal the value of horse and tack. If you were known to the owner
to be an upstanding citizen you could pay the regular rental fee either
in advance or upon your return. I contacted Ponderosa Stables in
Phoenix and they agreed some kind of security would be required to
insure the animal would be returned. And if the wasn't returned a
warrant would be sworn out for his arrest.

"As to the question, what happened if someone wanted to rent a horse in
Tombstone and leave it in Tucson, author and authority on the
Butterfield Overland Trail, Gerald T. Ahnert says 'I checked over 100
livery stable ads in California newspapers for 1870-1885. If you rent a
horse and buggy you would have to return them. The only way a one-way
rental would work is if the livery stable owned a chain of them. None
of the ads indicate this situation.'"

This conclusion seems to be pure assumption based upon the ads not
specifically stating 'one way rental available'. Without walking into

That's what A Man Called Shenandoah referred to him as to everyone he
spoke to:
Conductor, did a drummer get on the train?
Hotel clerk, did a drummer check in?
Sheriff, have you see a drummer?
Way station owner, did you sell a drummer a horse?

He did this without having ever spoken to the man; I guess he could tell
by the guy's outfits.

BTW I'm assuming they're using 'drummer' to mean 'salesman' and not
'Ringo'

One of the show's attempts at authenticity, I think:

Drumming – Soliciting of customers in a retail establishment, such as
“can I help you find something?”

https://www.legendsofamerica.com/we-slang/4/

It follows that "drummer" would be slang for "salesman." To this day,
we still talk about "drumming up sales."

Of course, as you imply, they could have said "salesman" just as easily.

How do we know he's a drummer?
That's what A Man Called Shenandoah referred to him as to everyone he
Conductor, did a drummer get on the train?
Hotel clerk, did a drummer check in?
Sheriff, have you see a drummer?
Way station owner, did you sell a drummer a horse?
He did this without having ever spoken to the man; I guess he could tell
by the guy's outfits.
BTW I'm assuming they're using 'drummer' to mean 'salesman' and not
'Ringo'
Then why didn't he say "salesman"?
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Door-to-door
"People who use this sales approach are often called traveling salesmen,
or the archaic name drummer, to "drum up" business."
Westerns like Gunsmoke use 'drummer' for any traveling salesman, like
the guys that sell Miss Kitty her liquor.
I take it people may have been more familair with the term back then?
How old do you think I am, anyway? ;)

Drummers were called that because certain of them literally used drums
to attract attention before beginning their pitch. As in "drumming up a
crowd".

Did he have a sample case with him? I don't remember.

I watched the series. It had problems, but was interesting for the fact
that they did slowly paint a picture of who Shenandoah was over time --
he had been in the Union Army, was an officer, was in a certain unit
that was in certain places at certain times -- which was serial
continuity in an era when there was practically none outside of soap
opera. They couldn't stretch out the mystery for long though. It's too
bad they couldn't have simply wrapped it up in the last episode.

Robert Horton was interviewed here about it:

http://tinyurl.com/y8cue7k8

(the real URL is four lines long)

He says they never got the chance to do a SHENANDOAH wrap-up.

I remember Horton quitting WAGON TRAIN to do other work. It was a very
big deal because TV actors just didn't quit a show back then. Horton
came in for a lot of criticism, much of it based on the perception that
he just wasn't that good an actor, or at least not good enough to be
the movie star he thought he really was.

It was popular enough that Gene Roddenberry could sell Star Trek as
Wagon Train to the stars.

Ward Bond's death should have killed Wagon Train, but John McIntyre
became available when the original half hour Naked City was cancelled.
WT still runs on MeTV.

Eric Fleming leaving Rawhide was much more surprising.

That sales point referred more to the quality of WAGON TRAIN and it
being an anthology. WAGON TRAIN featured stories about the travelers,
and these characters were often played by A-list movie actors, e.g.
Bette Davis and Charles Laughton, which was very unusual in early TV.
Despite Roddenberry's pitch, STAR TREK never did anything like that.

Actually that movie in Peru was going to be Fleming's last
in any case. He had planned to quit acting after that movie
and retire to run a horse ranch in Hawaii.

He was tired of the whole Hollywood thing. From what I've
read about him and interviews with his cast mates on
Rawhide, he was a very private person and tended to keep
to himself. Not a good match for the party hardy scene
in Hollywood and the motion picture and television way
of doing business.

Episode 6 - THE VERDICT

Three men (including Bruce Dern) sneak around in the dark, waiting for
the Sheriff's light to go out.

A Man Called Shenandoah is meeting with the Sheriff who finds a record
of a man he's looking for when gunshots erupt outside! Without
finishing telling A Man Called Shenandoah what he needs to hear, the
Sheriff races outside only to be shot down by Dern. A Man Called
Shenandoah returns the favor. Dying, the Sheriff looks up at A Man
Called Shenandoah and croaks "His name was ..." and kicks the bucket.

Robert Horton sings "A Man Called Shenandoah"

In the Marshal (as it turns out)'s office, the doctor says if A Man
Called Shenandoah had killed Dern he'd have saved them all a lot of
trouble. A drunk lynch mob bursts in! A Man Called Shenandoah denies
them - at gunpoint.

The next day A Man Called Shenandoah is digging through the Marshal's
ledgers when the now sober lynch mob shows up to thank him, and ask him
to be the new lawman! A temporary gig, 2 or 3 days, 'til the Governor
can send down a replacement. Evil Ed Asner, a lawyer, shows up to
defend Dern. A Man Called Shenandoah agrees to wear the badge until the
trial!
Dissolve to the trial. Evil Asner is trying to cast doubt on if Dern
was really with the other killers or was the one who shot the Marshal.
Witness after witness buckles as Dern's smirk broadens.

After a scam commercial, the DA has A Man Called Shenandoah on the
stand. Evil Ed cross examines. Of course the fact that Shenandoah
doesn't know who he is or where he's from becomes a problem. Evil ed
accuses A Man Called Shenandoah of faking amnesia to hide great crimes.
Dern is acquitted! The town now believes Dern. Dern and Evil Ed have
drinks. Dern offers Evil Ed $3000 for his legal fees, and admits he was
one of the robbers and killed the Marshal. Evil Ed goes straight to A
Marshal Called Shenandoah and rats Dern out! Double jeopardy is
attached for murder, but Evil Ed wants A Man Called Shenandoah to help
get Dern for robbery! Out in the classic abandoned hideout shack (with
a huge fake rock in the middle of the road in) Dern and Evil Ed meet up
with the other two robbers. A Man Called Shenandoah appears with a
rifle and tells Evil Ed to get their guns! Ed starts but Dern throws
hot coffee in his face! A Man Called Shenandoah guns down one of them,
and another guns down Evil Ed! That one tries to get behind A Man
Called Shenandoah but Evil Ed guns him down! Only Dern is left! Dern
tries to run for it and A Man Called Shenandoah bravely shoots him in
the back! Dern thrashes and flails and wildly overacts his death scene,
twisting and turning and intertwining his legs!
A Man Called Shenandoah and Evil Ed (with his arm in a sling) walk to A
Man Called Shenandoah's horse. Evil Ed tells A Man Called Shenandoah he
can stay on as Marshal as long as he wants. Evil Ed tells A Man Called
Shenandoah that he's a decent man (which doesn't mean a lot coming from
a lawyer named Evil Ed). A Man Called Shenandoah rides off (Asner
idiotically forgets which arm is in a sling and waves goodbye with it)
and sings!

This lonely man
Must keep on riding
Through the barrrrrreeen land so lonely
Oh Shenandoah
You're doomed to wander
So roam
In search of home
'cross this land
So lonely

Amusingly, in the distance, A Man Called Shenandoah's horse shies and
refused to cross a gully and they're stopped dead as the picture fades
out ...

Heh. A Man Called Shenandoah's name was on the other side of the gully,
and the horse didn't want to get shot dead.

Episode 9 - INCIDENT AT DRY CREEK

A small format change with this episode, as we pick up a narrator (in
the best tradition of THE FUGITIVE) who sounds alarmingly like Jack Webb
...

"Another town, another place; another lonely trail in search of all the
lost yesterdays. A trail without end for a man with no name, no memory,
no past; for A Man Called Shenandoah."

A Man Called Shenandoah rides into town and heads for the Sheriff's
office. A sign on the wall says there's a Deputy job available, good
pay. After some fairly entertaining back and forth, A Man Called
Shenandoah blows the job when he asks for Ben Tiller.

Robert Horton sings A Man Called Shenandoah over the original credits
set in the snow ...

A Man Called Shenandoah sees a sign for a gunsmith. In the shop are a
young boy, Frankie, and a pretty girl, the gunsmith's daughter. He
gives her his gun for repair and gets a loaner. She tells him that Bart
Tiller (Bart? It was Ben before the credits) left town 10 days ago and
he doesn't have any friends and to be careful.

The Sheriff hears a shot in the saloon and runs in! A Man Called
Shenandoah gets there in time to see the Sheriff stagger out shot; A Man
Called Shenandoah shoots at three fleeing men and bravely kills one in
the back. They were Ben Bart Tiller and his friends, the friends he
doesn't have! This gets him the Deputy job.

On the street, A Deputy Called Shenandoah meets the young boy Frankie
and his father. He goes into the gunsmith's to hit on the pretty blonde
and pick up his gun. He comes away with a weapon and a dinner
invitation.

Later, checking the town at nightfall, A Deputy Called Shenandoah hears
a noise on the roof of the bank! He sees a figure trying to get in a
window and bravely shoots at it, not knowing who or why it is or if
they're armed! He then finds the body of the young boy, Frankie.

Frankie gets a deathbed scene. A Deputy Called Shenandoah says he fired
a warning shot (yeah, straight at the kid) and the kid returned fire but
... no gun was found. The father vows to kill A Deputy Called
Shenandoah. A Deputy Called Shenandoah says it can't have been the kid
on the roof since he didn't have a gun. Huh?

At the mine where the father (Yorby) used to work, A Deputy Called
Shenandoah finds that Yorby was fired for consorting with Bart Ben
Tiller! Given the confusion over Tiller's first name, they've stopped
using it at all.

A Deputy Called Shenandoah finds that Yorby requested the hotel room
overlooking the bank specifically. Yorby accosts him and gets a
bellyful of fist for his trouble. A Deputy Called Shenandoah's theory
is that both Yorby and son were on the roof, and Yorby did the shooting,
and A Deputy Called Shenandoah bravely killed the unarmed boy by
mistake, which somehow makes it all right.

A Deputy Called Shenandoah goes to bring in Yorby and fisticuffs ensue!
A Deputy Called Shenandoah beats a confession out of Yorby. It happened
just as A Deputy Called Shenandoah had wildly theorized.

In jail, Yorby denies everything. A Former Deputy Called Shenandoah
heads out after Tiller despite having been paid in advance for a month
and having never had dinner with the pretty blonde and despite there
being no hurry as the Sheriff has assured him Tiller will be back. A
Man Called Shenandoah sings!

"Once more I faiiilllled
To learn the aannnsswweerrrr
Once more I rooooaaamed
This land so lonely
Oh Shenandoah
You're doomed to wander
So roam
In search of home
Cross this land
So lonely"

And this time ... his horse crosses the gully!

The episode description says AIRWOLF - Shenandoah bids farewell to Julie
Wade. Episode: Town on Fire. Hmm. We'll see what happens.

Episode 8 - Town on Fire

A Man Called Shenandoah tells Mr. Wade of Wade City that it's time to
move on. His cute daughter Julie enters the scene! Hey, it's the cute
daughter from Father Knows Best and the evil bitchy commissioner from
Star Trek TOS Metamorphosis! A Man Called Shenandoah says he's been
there a month, and would stay if he knew about his past. They kiss.
"It didn't seem like a farewell kiss" "I didn't mean it to be."
Suddenly a shifty man on horseback sneakily pins a note to the place you
pin notes to!
NOTICE
TODAY IS TOM WADE'S DAY.
TOMORROW WADE CITY WILL BE
BURNED TO THE GROUND
AROUND HIS BODY!
Johnny Kyle
"Tom Wade" "Wade City" and "Burned" are hand printed in bold, so we know
they mean business.

Robert Horton sings "A Man Called Shenandoah"

Mr. and Daughter Julie talk about how much they already miss A Man
Called Shenandoah. A Man Called Shenandoah rides past sneaky men ...
sneaky men WITH DYNOMITE! They toss a bundle into the Wade's
storefront! KA-BOOM! A Man Called Shenandoah's stuntman whirls his
horse at the sound! An unknown voiceover shouts THAT'S JOHNNY KYLE!
Somehow A Man Called Shenandoah gets to the wreckage before anybody else
in town. He and the doctor "I'm what passes for one around here" get
the girl out of the building - nobody even asks about the father.
At the hotel, A Man Called Shenandoah tell the Sheriff that she can't be
moved. The Sheriff shows A Man Called Shenandoah the note. Kyle
apparently does this routinely. People are already abandoning town!
The doctor says they have to keep Julie completely still - the explosion
that killed her father injured her spine! A Man Called Shenandoah
visits her in her sickbed and promises to stay.
Out on the street the fleeing townsfolk almost run over A Man Called
Shenandoah! The Sheriff is letting Otis out of the cell, telling him to
get his family out of town. they Sheriff has given up, because only Tom
Wade ever beat Johnny Kyle!

Night on the empty street of Wade City. A Man Called Shenandoah lights
a lamp in the hotel lobby so the bad guys will know where to find him.
The doctor has stayed behind to sit with Julie. They reiterate she
can't be moved. A Man Called Shenandoah gathers guns from the WADE CITY
MERCANTILE CO. TOM WADE. prop. and hides them in various storefronts
around town. A Man Called Shenandoah is raiding the Sheriff's gun rack
when he hears men on horses throwing lanterns like Molotov cocktails!
He shoots and misses and puts out the flames. But then he hears 7
riders coming in, including Johnny Kyle! Shooting erupts! Despite 7
men on horses being in a clump in a crossfire, the doctor and A Man
Called Shenandoah only manage to wound one of them before they ride away.
Julie wakes up! Exposition! A Man Called Shenandoah says he couldn't
marry her because what if he already has a wife?
The doctor and A Man Called Shenandoah build a barricade in the middle
of the street. The doctor says there are only 5 bad guys left! (I
guess they got two) Waiting and dramatic music ensue. Suddenly the 5
bad guys ride in! A Man Called Shenandoah gets one of them; two more
dehorse. A Man Called Shenandoah gets one of those! And then the
other! The remaining two circle around! The Doctor misses one point
blank with a shotgun, and is in turn shot down by the bad guy, who is in
turn shot down by A Man Called Shenandoah! By my calculations this
means we're down to Johnny Kyle and A Man Called Shenandoah! Kyle
charges! A Man Called Shenandoah's rifle is empty! Kyle jumps his
horse over the barricade and A Man Called Shenandoah pulls his pistol
and shoots Kyle in the soft underbelly as he passes overhead! Without
hitting his horse! The doctor is okay!
People start to come back and disassemble the barricade.
Julie says there must be a lot wrong with Tom Wade's way if the people
wouldn't hang around to fight. She tells A Man Called Shenandoah to go
find the answers he needs. They kiss, repeating the poignant dialog the
episode began with:
"That didn't seem like a farewell kiss."
"I didn't mean it to be."
In the lobby A Man Called Shenandoah says his farewells to the doctor.
Clever dialog about the futility of digging up the past ensues.

A Man Called Shenandoah sings! Original lyrics!

The giiiirrrrrrl I left behind
Will haaaaaunnnnnt meeeeee
As I riiiiiiiiide
This land so loooooooonely
Oh Shenandoah
You're doomed to wander
So roam
In search of home
'cross this land
So loooonnnnnnnnnnnnnnelyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy

Written By Robert Hamner
(good night John Boy)

It ends with the same footage from last week with his horse shying at
the gully and refusing to continue.



So, these are the dumbest bad guys ever. They have two goals: Kill Tom
Wade and burn the city to the ground. They got Tom Wade (by accident)
on their first try. So why keep riding into the center of town where
people are shooting at you? Why not just set the upwind edge of town on
fire and watch it spread?

Episode 10 - The Locket

The Jack Webb sound alike narrator solemnly intones:

"A flash of a familiar face; a desperate need to find one man alone in
all this desolation. Only a name: Abbott. Not a lot to go on for a
man with no name, no past, no memory. There never is for A Man Called
Shenandoah."

Abbott? What happened to Ben Bart Tiller?

Suddenly three riders start shooting at A Man Called Shenandoah from
absurdly far away. In a ridiculous rookie mistake, they shot the three
riders shooting and the reaction shots of A Man Called Shenandoah being
shot at IN THE EXACT SAME CAMERA SETUP so the background doesn't change
*at all* and the people just pop on and off as it cuts back and forth.
Sheesh!

A chase ensues! The three ... they might be Indians ... fail to hit A
Man Called Shenandoah with their rifles but he gets two of them shooting
back over his shoulder with a pistol! His gun fails so he throws it at
the third! He kills the last knife wielding one with his bare hands!
Robbing the corpse, he finds a locket, and, inside, a picture of ... A
Man Called Shenandoah! And another of a young girl.

A Man Called Shenandoah sings! But this time the snows have melted, and
he's against the desolation background of this episode.

A Man Called Shenandoah rides up on the horse he stole from the Indian
he murdered with his bare hames (the Indians shot his out from under
him) to Trader Sam's a lonely outpost in the desolation. Trader Sam
says he saw the locket a week ago. Inexplicably A Man Called Shenandoah
asks if the locket belonged to A Man Called Abbott; it did. He heads
off in search of A Man Called Abbot.

Another rider comes to Trader Sam's. It's Martin Landau! Landau is a
bounty hunter with a wanted poster for ... A Man Called Abbott!

In a town, A Man Called Shenandoah asks the Sheriff (in an office that
looks suspiciously like the one in the previous episode) for A Man
Called Abbott. He finds a wanted poster on him! Martin Landau tells A
Man Called Shenandoah to stay away from Abbott because the bounty is
his! The Sheriff tells them both to go away!

Back in the desolation once again, Martin Landau must choose between
going left to Buffalo Horn 72 miles or right to Rock Pass 14 miles. He
and A Man Called Shenandoah decide to ride together because of those
pesky Indians on the warpath. Abbott's wanted dead or alive; Landau
wants him dead 'cause it's easier and A Man Called Shenandoah wants him
alive long enough to answer some questions.

Seven Indians ride across the desolation. Landau and A Man Called
Shenandoah bravely hide and watch them go by. A Man Called Shenandoah
is an expert tracker, and they're only half a day behind Abbott.

Abbott's wanted for murder for beating up his woman when he caught her
with another man. Um, what? And since when is that a crime?

Camping out that night, Landau tries to knife A Man Called Shenandoah in
his sleep! Using his wily Indian with a knife murdering skills, A Man
Called Shenandoah clobbers Landau and runs off his horse!

Once again A Man Called Shenandoah rides alone across the desolation.
He finds an Indian war party attacking a covered wagon! The Godless
Heathens steal whisky and festive floral women's hats (no, seriously)
from a wagon plainly marked U.S. ARMY.

Night falls. A Man Called Shenandoah sneaks up behind and murders a
drunken Indian, festive flowered women's hat and all. And another!

Martin Landau stumbles across the desolation and finds his horse!

A Man Called Shenandoah leads the wagon survivor on one horse across the
desolation. I guess he murdered *all* the sleeping drunken Indians
*and* their horses. The man turns out to be Abbott (no, I don't
understand either). Abbott can only shake his head that he doesn't know
A Man Called Shenandoah but the locket *is* his because the Indians cut
out his tongue! Gah.

Landau gets the drop on them! He's gonna kill Abbott and strand A Man
Called Shenandoah! Landau kills Abbott. A Man Called Shenandoah kills
Landau. As Abbott dies, A Man Called Shenandoah pulls out a #2
Ticonderoga pencil and tells him to write where he got the locket, but
all Abbott can write is an 'X'

A Man Called Shenandoah buries both men instead of taking Abbott's body
in for the $500 reward which would be like a years pay.

A Man Called Shenandoah sings!

The man I sought
That day was buried
Deep within the land so lonely
Oh Shenandoah
You're dooms to wander
I'll roam
In search of home
'cross the land
so looooooooooooonellllyyyyyyyyyy

The desolation is gullyless.

Checking the U.S.C.O. database it looks like the they (unsurprisingly,
in 1965...) broadcast these out of order - for example, "The Onslaught"
which aired first isn't the first produced episode: "Survival" is.

"Incident at Dry Creek" (your ep. #9, presumably...) is #7 in the

Oh, you found production order? Excellent! URL, please?

I've read elsewhere that ONSLAUGHT was the second ep filmed - the thing
is, it's clearly the pilot - it's where A Man Called Shenandoah gets
clobbered and loses his memory! You have to wonder why they'd film an
origin story second.

If "The Onslaught" was filmed second, then the prod. codes are all

all this desolation. Only a name: Abbott. Not a lot to go on for a
man with no name, no past, no memory. There never is for A Man Called
Shenandoah."
Abbott? What happened to Ben Bart Tiller?
Checking the U.S.C.O. database it looks like the they (unsurprisingly,
in 1965...) broadcast these out of order - for example, "The Onslaught"
which aired first isn't the first produced episode: "Survival" is.
"Incident at Dry Creek" (your ep. #9, presumably...) is #7 in the
production order; "The Locket" (this one) is #14.
Oh, you found production order? Excellent! URL, please?
https://cocatalog.loc.gov/cgi-bin/Pwebrecon.cgi?DB=local&PAGE=First
[search: Man Called Shenandoah]
I can easily add the prod. codes to the Wiki page - but it's likely I
won't get to that today...

I've read elsewhere that ONSLAUGHT was the second ep filmed - the thing
is, it's clearly the pilot - it's where A Man Called Shenandoah gets
clobbered and loses his memory! You have to wonder why they'd film an
origin story second.
If "The Onslaught" was filmed second, then the prod. codes are all
messed up! - According to the prod. codes, it's #6(!) in the production
order!
Yeah, I had found that, and decided to just watch them in air order
because I found the production info troubling. But I hadn't seen the
whole order until now, so I'll revisit it. Thanks!

Episode 11 - The Reward

I opted to continue watching these in airing order.

As people dance downstairs, a rummy who looks suspiciously like Arnold
Ziffel's father sells a gunny a wanted poster for ... A Man Called
Shenandoah! Opening titles are back to being over the snow.

A man comes down the stairs to the dance but ... I don't think he's the
gunsel who's face we never saw. At the dance, A Man Called Shenandoah
is hitting on the leader of Mudd's Women. He lures her outside for some
air.

The Jack Webb-a-like announcer solemnly intones:
"The night. A momentary pause in the search. But the night can be no
friend for a man with no name, no memory, no past. For A Man Called
Shenandoah."

Small talk ensues. Mudd's Woman complains of the lack of smoochies.
Murray comes out and claims the next dance. The mystery gunsel puts a
gun to A Man Called Shenandoah head, gets the wet kiss at the end of A
Man Called Shenandoah's hot fist for his trouble, is punched into a
buggy that runs away with him, making good his escape!

Mudd's Woman finally gets her smoochies! Harv has found the wanted
poster! A Man Called Shenandoah has no explanation for why there's a
$500 reward on his head, but he heads off to Soldier's Mound Texas to
find out!

Print shop owner Murray says goodbye. Mystery Gunsel watches from on
high.

Campfire at night. Mystery Gunsel fires into the bedroll of A Man
Called Shenandoah! A Man Called Shenandoah, hiding elsewhere, fires
back! The only casualty is the canteen of A Man Called Shenandoah.

Just outside of town A Man Called Shenandoah runs into a man in a wagon,
who looks suspiciously like the police inspector from LAND OF THE GIANTS
and turns out to be the Mystery Gunsel! He's a bounty hunter! He's
taking A Man Called Shenandoah in!

After the commercial, stupid Gunsel trips over his own feet and gets
clobbered again. A Man Called Shenandoah gets to the Sheriff alone.
The Sheriff doesn't know him, and has no such wanted poster! "I'd say
whoever had this printed was trying to kill you without going out of the
house!"

Back to New Mexico and Mudd's Woman, followed by the Gunsel. While A
Man Called Shenandoah was out of town, she got engaged!

A Man Called Shenandoah confronts print shop owner Murray. The fake
poster was put out by the man Mudd's Woman is going to marry, to be rid
of A Man Called Shenandoah! And that man is ... Murray!!!

Murray runs outside only to be shot from ambush by the Gunsel! A Man
Called Shenandoah returns the favor!

A Man Called Shenandoah leaves town. Maude gives him a sandwich. He
says to tell Mudd's Woman that she didn't see him before he left.

A Man Called Shenandoah sings!

"Once more I failed
To learn the answer.
Once more I roam
This land so lonely
Oh Shenandoah
You're doomed to wander
So roam
In search of home
'cross this land
so lonely"

Shenandoah!
And why would a gunslinger need to _buy_ a wanted poster?
Okay, there's a complicated subplot that's only revealed in bits across
the ep and some of it is told by people that are probably lying, but
here:

Shenadoah comes to town and takes up with Mudd. Mudd had been going
with Murray for a long time. I guess they were on a break (Oh-my-God if
you say that again *I'm* going to break up with you!!!). Nobody tells A
Man Called Shenandoah about this. Murray is homicidally jealous but
tells no one. Rummy spots a notorious bounty hunter in the hotel above
the dance and tells no one but Murray because reasons. Murray makes up
one phony wanted poster and gets Rummy to sell it to Gunsel (they act
like they've been having dealings before but I have no idea what they'd
have been). Murray claims he just did it to get Shenandoah out of town
and away from Mudd, but ... you don't need a DEAD OR ALIVE poster for
that! Gunsel tries to take Shenandoah at the dance but ends up in the
runaway wagon instead. Gunsel follows A Man Called Shenandoah back to
Texas (somehow getting way ahead of him in the process) and then back to
New Mexico again. Rummy spots Gunsel hiding in the livery and runs in
shouting it to Murray in front of A Man Called Shenandoah. Murray
panics and runs outside where Gunsel shoots him thinking he's A Man
Called Shenandoah. The real A Man Called Shenandoah shoots Gunsel from
behind the safety of a pillar. Hey! Then A Man Called Shenandoah says
"If the Sheriff wants to talk to me I'll be at the hotel" so there *is*
law in the New Mexico town! Shouldn't somebody have told HIM about the
poster!?!?

Unless he's Print Shop Owner Murray wouldn't he have to get out of the
house to get it printed?
Yeah, at this point there's pretty much only the one suspect.

Back to New Mexico and Mudd's Woman, followed by the Gunsel. While A

A Man Called Shenandoah confronts print shop owner Murray. The fake
poster was put out by the man Mudd's Woman is going to marry, to be rid
of A Man Called Shenandoah! And that man is ... Murray!!!
Seems that Sheriff in Texas knew more than he knew he knew. And how did
Murray know that A Man Called Shenandoah was going to lure his hussy
outside for smoochies so that he would need to print a fake wanted
poster to lure A Man Called Shenandoah out of town so A Man Called
Shenandoah wouldn't crash Murray and Hussy's wedding?
It's complicated.
And my description of it wasn't?
Stop making me think about this.

On GUNSMOKE, you turn your prisoner over to Marshall Dillion, and he
wires for your reward money. Here, Gunsel apparently had to take his
prisoner to the Sheriff who put out the poster in Texas. And ... he's
gonna be pretty ripe by the time you get the body there.

So why doesn't he turn A Man Called Shenandoah over to the local Sheriff
and have him wire for the money? Maybe that only works if the local
lawman is a Fed?

Murray runs outside only to be shot from ambush by the Gunsel! A Man
Called Shenandoah returns the favor!
Oh, NOW they can hit the broadside of a barn.
Yep. In the dark. A Man Called Shenandoah even shoots from behind a
pillar that Gunsel hits dead center.

A Man Called Shenandoah leaves town. Maude gives him a sandwich. He
says to tell Mudd's Woman that she didn't see him before he left.
Who is Maude and why is she giving strange nameless men sandwiches?
Unless she was at the dance, this is the first and last time we ever see
her.
This town is just full of hussies.
Post by anim8rfsk
Also I'm not sure why he's avoiding Mudd; she didn't do anything wrong,
and her old beau is dead, and she's probably up for some condolence
smoochies.
And he isn't even the one who shot Murray!
I know! He shot the guy who shot Murray! That should definitely put
him in line for smoochies!!

A Man Called Shenandoah sings!
"Once more I failed
To learn the answer.
Once more I roam
This land so lonely
Oh Shenandoah
You're doomed to wander
So roam
In search of home
'cross this land
so lonely"
And then his horse refuses to cross the gully. Again.
This ep is both gully and end announcer free.
The horse demanded perks when it renegotiated its contract.
Or he finally got it to go in the gully and it never came out.

Episode 12 - A Special Talent for Killing

A Man Called Shenandoah rides (on the speckle butt horsie from last
week) into a ghost town - or is it? There's a light on in the hotel.
Across the street men suspiciously watch him from hiding. In the hotel
(have I mentioned that they use the same hotel set every week?) the desk
clerk looks suspiciously like that incompetent historian that betrayed
James Tiberius Kirk to Khan Noonian Singh. As she tells him that El
Dorado isn't a good place to stay, a man looking suspiciously like
Petroni from Airport, Airport 75, Airport 77, and Airport The Concord
This Time It's Personal enters but refuses to acknowledge the heartfelt
friendly greeting of A Man Called Shenandoah. A Man Called Shenandoah
is looking for Ben Daniels but refuses to say why ... and the townsfolk
don't like it at all.

You know, half these episodes would be self resolving if he'd just
*tell* them why he was looking for whomever.

A Man Called Shenandoah sings the snowy theme!

The Jack Webbian narrator (whom the CC confusingly identifies as
Shenandoah!) solemnly intones: "El Dorado, a town of empty streets and
rotting buildings, of dead mines and buried dreams. Another place to
search for a man with no name, no memory, no past. For A Man Called
Shenandoah." Boy howdy, that's a mess of a mouthful even without
telling us it's A Man Called Shenandoah speaking!

The next morning A Man Called Shenandoah wants breakfast in the hotel.
The historian tells him to get breakfast on the trail, far away. The
three lurking lurkers speak of getting the information, finding out who
sent him, and killing him. Breakfast is a steak, medium rare, eggs up,
pot of hot coffee, black. Very strong. Where in this ghost town 50
miles from nowhere is she getting fresh eggs, much less fresh steak?

It's been five years since the mines died. Petroni wants information!
A Man Called Shenandoah says they won't get it! Petroni threatens "by
hook or by crook, we will!"

A Man Called Shenandoah goes for a walk. Petroni savagely beats the
Historian who betrayed James Kirk! They decide (make up out of whole
cloth) that the mine owners must have sent A Man Called Shenandoah! A
Man Called Shenandoah sees a dog and decides to follow it! It leads him
to the EL DORADO EMPORIUM, BEN DANIELS PROPRIETOR! The place is as much
of a wreck as the rest of the town. The dog leads him to a grave out
back! One of the lurkers three tells him he's just found Ben Daniels!
The lurker tells A Man Called Shenandoah he can't leave now. Wackiness
ensues, and only A Man Called Shenandoah walks away!

After the commercial, A Man Called Shenandoah reloads (refreshing to
see) and walks down the street, only to be ambushed by half of the
lurkers two! Petroni soon joins in the festivities. A Man Called
Shenandoah escapes!

Back at the hotel, A Man Called Shenandoah asks the Historian where
they've hidden his horse. She'll tell him but only for a price - a ride
out of town!

A Man Called Shenandoah finds his horse! Annoying, it is *not* the
speckle butt he rode in on. The Historian is too stupid to untangle the
bridles! The lesser half the the lurkers two breaks in and shoots A Man
Called Shenandoah before A Man Called Shenandoah plants him!

Now the Historian tells the sordid backstory - Petroni has reopened the
mine and is stealing ore. Petroni killed Ben Daniels to keep him quiet.

A Man Called Shenandoah and the Historian wait for Petroni to show. The
Historian whiles away the hours by complaining she's hungry. The old
dog tells A Man Called Shenandoah that Petroni is staked out across the
street! A Man Called Shenandoah shoos his horse that is not his horse
down the street and when Petroni comes out to shoot it, bravely cuts him
down from hiding!

Now that everybody but the Historian is dead, she decides to stay, in
hopes that A Man Called Shenandoah will return one day. He rides away
on the speckle butt.

A Man Called Shenandoah sings:

"The girl I left behind
Will haaaaauuuuuunnnt meeeee
As I riiiiiide this land
So lonelyyyyyyyy
Oh Shenandoah
You're doomed to wander
So roam
In search of home
'crosss this land
so lonelyyyyyyyy"

The Historian and Old Dog watch as he rides speckle butt out across the
barren desert, so lonely.

With no ending narration and no gully, the end credits run over a
*still* of A Man Called Shenandoah riding through the snow. So lonely.

Episode 13 - The Siege

A Man Called Shenandoah enters the only hotel lobby in the Southwest and
rents a room. The clerk interrupts his stimulating checkers game to
tell Tim to go get the Sheriff! Now!!1!!

A Man Called Shenandoah sings the snowy theme song!

A Man Called Shenandoah comes down the stairs of the only hotel lobby in
the Southwest to face the clerk, the Sheriff, and the Tim! The clerk
says A Man Called Shenandoah skipped out, owing him $35!1! And ... he
doesn't remember A Man Called Shenandoah's name. Two years ago A Man
Called Shenandoah was laid up sick and skipped out the window leaving
his blanket roll behind. A Man Called Shenandoah offers to buy it back
... for $35!

As the lonely harmonica plays A Man Called Shenandoah, A Man Called
Shenandoah goes through the lonely contents of the lonely blanket roll.
Inside is a Dear John letter!! Dated January 11, 1867! Dear FRANK!
Nora is marrying Andrew Styles, and asks Frank to forgive!

A Man Called Shenandoah quickly heads to Acova, Texas, where the Dear
Frank letter was posted. He asks for Styles, who looks suspiciously
like the guy who helped James Tiberius West that time Arte had a heart
attack. Styles says he must be Frank Moyer and ... HE WON'T SEE HIM!
Fisticuffs ensue! A Man Called Shenandoah leaves and leads Old Speckle
Butt to the hotel.

Styles, a meek mild mannered businessman, straps on a gun he's clearly
unaccustomed to. He has a letter *from* Frank, telling Nora he's going
to make her a widow! Nora was married to Frank and never divorced!!

Judge Albert Evans goes to talk to A Man Called Frank Moyers. Frank
insists on talking to Nora and ... actually *tells* the Judge he has
amnesia!

A woman who looks suspiciously like one of the lesser Van Pattens comes
to the hotel cafe and introduces herself as ... NORA!!!!

Nora's not a lot of help. She just says he left three years ago and
wrote every so often saying he couldn't come home yet. She waited
almost a year before she married somebody else (floozy). She tells him
about the widowmaker threat letter. Suddenly a new customer says "Hello
Lily"!!!1!! She works at the Cimarron and the Judge put her up to it!
He paid her $10! A Man Called Frank tells her to tell Stiles he's got 5
minutes to show himself or Frank's coming after him.

Five minutes later they meet on the street. Stiles says he's going to
kill Frank rather than let him see Nora! But he can't do it. He takes
A Man Formerly Called Shenandoah to see the woman who was his wife!

The judge shows A Man Who Used To Be Called Shenandoah the letter he
wrote Nora.

Stiles brings out Nora. She's a little girl! Named after her mother,
who died two years ago. They were keeping her secret lest A Man Once
Again Called Shenandoah try to claim her. She's four years old, and,
yes, the math doesn't work out at all.

A Man Called Shenandoah tells the judge the widow threat letter isn't
his handwriting. They assume the hotel clerk gave him the wrong blanket
roll. A Man Called Shenandoah is tired of the false leads and decides
to join a cattle drive to Hayes City. He rides away on Old Speckle Butt
and sings:

"Once more I failed
To learn the answer
Once more I roam
This land so lonely
Oh Shenandoah
You're doomed to wander
So roam
In search of home
'cross this land
So lonelyyyyyyyyyyyy"

While we see stock footage of him riding the horse not known as old
speckle butt across the endless desert.

The end credits are against the lonely still of the soon to be dead
horse in the snow ...

Episode 14 - The Bell

A Man Called Shenandoah rides across the lonely snowless prairie.
Surrounded by gullies, his non speckle butt horse comes to a stop, so A
Man Called Shenandoah takes the opportunity to sip from his canteen,
therefore allowing him to hear a sound he'd have never heard if he'd
been moving - a mission bell! He rides to the sound, which is coming
from a painting of a mission that looks suspiciously like the de la Vega
hacienda, in a landscape that in no way shape or form resembles where A
Man Called Shenandoah had been riding. He rides to a bell tower that in
no way shape or form resembles the paining of the mission. A man is
raising a huge bell (call it 3'x3') on a rope. It slips and hurtles to
the ground, almost squishing A Man Called Shenandoah and his horse, who,
in the stupidest move I've ever seen, had decided to ride right under
the scaffolding erected to raise the bell! The bellman offers A Man
Called Shenandoah food and drink. This town was attacked so often by
Indians that the people abandoned it, and the bellman is moving the bell
to his town, 25 miles away. He cons A Man Called Shenandoah into
helping him, partly by donning his priest's robes.

A Man Called Shenandoah sings the snowy theme!

Produced by Fred Frieberger!! On noes!!!!

In return for the food and drink, A Man Called Shenandoah helps the
priest load the bell on the wagon. Before he even gets out of sight, he
can see the priest and his donkey aren't going to get the bell very far
by themselves. So he helps, even though it's nothing time sensitive and
he's got to meet a man in Wellington Falls who may know his real name.

A Man Called Shenandoah's horse (not Old Speckle Butt) picks up a stone,
giving them a chance to save money by standing and talking. Poorly and
intermittently dubbed, the priest explains he's stupid and wants the
bell to convince his townsfolk to follow him. A Man Called Shenandoah
sees a man on horseback watching them, and decides to abandon the
priest! The lone watching rider magically splits into two and accost
the priest! The bell is made of Aztek Gold!!! They don't believe he's a
priest because he doesn't have a gun! (What the Hell?) They kill his
mule as step one in stealing the bell (good plan). They won't believe
it's bronze!

After the commercial, A Man Called Shenandoah manages to sneak up on
them, but the lone rider's partner manages to sneak up on him! A Man
Called Shenandoah tells them that gold is soft so the bell can't be
gold! A poorly staged fight erupts, where the second lone rider kills
the first, and A Man Called Shenandoah kills the second! We learn that
A Man Called Shenandoah can speak Spanish!

A Man Called Shenandoah and the priest use the horse that is not old
speckle butt to pull the wagon (completely forgetting about the two lone
riders' horses). They come to a toll bridge run by an armed couple, the
female half of which suspiciously resembles the Keeper from the first
Star Trek pilot. They try to scam them for toll money. A Man Called
Shenandoah takes the gun away but the priest won't cross the bridge.
Lots of annoying bickering ensues. The toll couple run away the wrong
direction for no reason except they had no more lines. The wagon rolls
on the final mile to the priest's town, while the bickering continues.

Finally they reach the town of grumpy people. They don't care about the
bell, they just want him there to do meaningless voodoo rituals that
help no one. Because he's now in a terrible hurry, A Man Called
Shenandoah talks to the annoying townspeople and talks to the annoying
priest. At least what they say doesn't make a lot of sense.

The townspeople inexplicably decide they love the bell (which has become
much lighter) and now rings constantly even though it hasn't been hung
yet. A Man Called Shenandoah rides off into the desert, the bell
pealing behind him.

End credits over a still of the snowy horse.

Wow. By far the worst episode ever of A Man Called Shenandoah, and we
know exactly who's to blame.

Episode 15 - The Young Outlaw

A Man Called Shenandoah rides across the lonely snowless prairie. from
behind a bush, a gun points at him! Just as A Man Called Shenandoah and
his horse are about to cross the gully, the gun fires at the horses
feet, 'causing it to rear and backtrack! A young outlaw tries to hold A
Man Called Shenandoah up, but A Man Called Shenandoah easily disarms him
and takes his bullets. The young outlaw is headed to join with Adam
Clark, the same person A Man Called Shenandoah is looking for!

A Man Called Shenandoah sings as his horse crosses the endless lonely
snowcovered wilderness.

After the commercial, A Man Called Shenandoah rides across the lonely
snowless rocky terrain. Across him are emblazoned the three words we're
expecting ...
THE YOUNG OUTLAW
but then to our shock and horror come the four words we'd hoped never to
have inflicted upon us again:
Produced by FRED FREIBERGER
Hell, I may bail on this right now.
A Man Called Shenandoah stops to see the young outlaw is following him
on foot. They conversate. The young outlaw says he can find Adam Clark
because he once read an article about where he hides out (yeah, that's
gonna work). A Man Called Shenandoah gives him a ride.
They conversate. The young outlaw blathers on about his backstory, like
we care. Suddenly A Man Called Shenandoah stops his horse and gets off
(on the lonely plain exterior) and walks into ... a blatantly obvious
stage set not remotely resembling the live terrain. They find an old
hobo hiding in the brush. Suspicious looks are exchanged when they
mention Adam Clark. Later at the campfire the hobo tells stories of
Adam Clark. The young outlaw dislikes him. The hobo doesn't like A
Name Called Shenandoah. A Man Called Shenandoah doesn't either. The
young outlaw tosses green wood on the fire! The hobo tells him the
smoke will bring every gun in the area, and, sure enough, 3 SECONDS
LATER, every gun in the area walks out of the brush, guns brandished.

After the commercial, every gun in the territory says the hobo fits the
description! They all agree he looks sick. One calls him Adam! The
young outlaw laffs! Hah, hah! The guns want the $5000 reward and slap
the hobo around. Then they slap the young outlaw around. A Man Called
Shenandoah objects! The guns leave empty handed.

A Man Called Shenandoah and the hobo conversate. The hobo has a bullet
in him. A Man Called Shenandoah says Adam Clark will know who he is.
Finally after 25 minutes of the audience grinding it's teeth, A Man
Called Shenandoah says he thinks the hobo is ... Adam Clark!

The next day the three walk aimlessly across the barren lonely prairie.
Suddenly the hobo trips in a gully! In standard Fred Frieberger cheap
ass producing, they stop to talk. For no reason. About nothing.

Later, the kid says they need to go right because that's what the map
says. Map? MAP!? What the Hell map!?!?!?

At a ghost town - ghost town? what the Hell ghost town??? - every gun
in the area is waiting. Our three ride up and everybody starts shooting
at each other. The hobo pulls up floorboards in the hotel and gets his
hidden stash of rifles and ammo! He *is* Adam Clark! A Man Called
Shenandoah lectures him. I neither know nor care what about. More
shooting ensues. Clark has some sort of breakdown. The young outlaw is
disillusioned. A Man Called Shenandoah kills every gun in the area.
While the young outlaw gathers the horses, A Man Called Shenandoah and
Adam Clark conversate about how his cowardice was all an act to dissuade
the young outlaw from being a young outlaw. Adam Clark dies saying A
Man Called Shenandoah is nobody he ever knew. The young outlaw says
he's going back to face the music, and A Man Called Shenandoah hands him
his bullets.

There's no ending narration, no ending vocals. Just an instrumental and
a still of A Man Called Shenandoah riding his horse in the snow towards
a gully he'll never reach.

the young outlaw from being a young outlaw. Adam Clark dies saying A

his bullets.
There's no ending narration, no ending vocals. Just an instrumental and
a still of A Man Called Shenandoah riding his horse in the snow towards
a gully he'll never reach.
It's a freeway?

Thanks for watching. These reviews have been entertaining.

Episode 15 - The Young Outlaw
A Man Called Shenandoah rides across the lonely snowless prairie. from
behind a bush, a gun points at him! Just as A Man Called Shenandoah and
his horse are about to cross the gully, the gun fires at the horses
feet, 'causing it to rear and backtrack! A young outlaw tries to hold A
Man Called Shenandoah up, but A Man Called Shenandoah easily disarms him
and takes his bullets. The young outlaw is headed to join with Adam
Clark, the same person A Man Called Shenandoah is looking for!
Can I ask a question? Why did the horse forget his name too?

A Man Called Shenandoah stops to see the young outlaw is following him
on foot. They conversate. The young outlaw says he can find Adam Clark
because he once read an article about where he hides out (yeah, that's
gonna work). A Man Called Shenandoah gives him a ride.
They conversate. The young outlaw blathers on about his backstory, like
we care. Suddenly A Man Called Shenandoah stops his horse and gets off
(on the lonely plain exterior) and walks into ... a blatantly obvious
stage set not remotely resembling the live terrain. They find an old
hobo hiding in the brush. Suspicious looks are exchanged when they
mention Adam Clark. Later at the campfire the hobo tells stories of
Adam Clark. The young outlaw dislikes him. The hobo doesn't like A
Name Called Shenandoah. A Man Called Shenandoah doesn't either. The
young outlaw tosses green wood on the fire! The hobo tells him the
smoke will bring every gun in the area, and, sure enough, 3 SECONDS
LATER, every gun in the area walks out of the brush, guns brandished.
After the commercial, every gun in the territory says the hobo fits the
description! They all agree he looks sick. One calls him Adam! The
young outlaw laffs! Hah, hah! The guns want the $5000 reward and slap
the hobo around. Then they slap the young outlaw around. A Man Called
Shenandoah objects! The guns leave empty handed.
A Man Called Shenandoah and the hobo conversate. The hobo has a bullet
in him. A Man Called Shenandoah says Adam Clark will know who he is.
Finally after 25 minutes of the audience grinding it's teeth, A Man
Called Shenandoah says he thinks the hobo is ... Adam Clark!
The next day the three walk aimlessly across the barren lonely prairie.
Suddenly the hobo trips in a gully! In standard Fred Frieberger cheap
ass producing, they stop to talk. For no reason. About nothing.
Later, the kid says they need to go right because that's what the map
says. Map? MAP!? What the Hell map!?!?!?
At a ghost town - ghost town? what the Hell ghost town??? - every gun
in the area is waiting. Our three ride up and everybody starts shooting
at each other. The hobo pulls up floorboards in the hotel and gets his
hidden stash of rifles and ammo! He *is* Adam Clark! A Man Called
Shenandoah lectures him. I neither know nor care what about. More
shooting ensues. Clark has some sort of breakdown. The young outlaw is
disillusioned. A Man Called Shenandoah kills every gun in the area.

I think I'm suffered all the Fred Freiberger eps. At least I *hope* so.
IMDb wasn't right on this - he did more than they have listed for him.

be trying to shoot him on sight. So why don't they freaking COLLECT it?

Episode 15 - The Young Outlaw
[snip]
There's no ending narration, no ending vocals. Just an instrumental and
a still of A Man Called Shenandoah riding his horse in the snow towards
a gully he'll never reach.
This makes me sad... :(

Episode 12 - A Special Talent for Killing
A Man Called Shenandoah rides (on the speckle butt horsie from last
week) into a ghost town - or is it? There's a light on in the hotel.
Across the street men suspiciously watch him from hiding. In the hotel
(have I mentioned that they use the same hotel set every week?) the desk
clerk looks suspiciously like that incompetent historian that betrayed
James Tiberius Kirk to Khan Noonian Singh.
Is she still a ginger?
Post by anim8rfsk
As she tells him that El
Dorado isn't a good place to stay, a man looking suspiciously like
Petroni from Airport, Airport 75, Airport 77, and Airport The Concord
This Time It's Personal enters but refuses to acknowledge the heartfelt
friendly greeting of A Man Called Shenandoah. A Man Called Shenandoah
is looking for Ben Daniels but refuses to say why ... and the townsfolk
don't like it at all.
You know, half these episodes would be self resolving if he'd just
*tell* them why he was looking for whomever.
Hence why he never does.

A Man Called Shenandoah sings the snowy theme!
The Jack Webbian narrator (whom the CC confusingly identifies as
Shenandoah!) solemnly intones: "El Dorado, a town of empty streets and
rotting buildings, of dead mines and buried dreams. Another place to
search for a man with no name, no memory, no past. For A Man Called
Shenandoah." Boy howdy, that's a mess of a mouthful even without
telling us it's A Man Called Shenandoah speaking!
The next morning A Man Called Shenandoah wants breakfast in the hotel.
The historian tells him to get breakfast on the trail, far away. The
three lurking lurkers speak of getting the information, finding out who
sent him, and killing him. Breakfast is a steak, medium rare, eggs up,
pot of hot coffee, black. Very strong. Where in this ghost town 50
miles from nowhere is she getting fresh eggs, much less fresh steak?
It's been five years since the mines died. Petroni wants information!
A Man Called Shenandoah says they won't get it! Petroni threatens "by
hook or by crook, we will!"
Does Petroni even say what information it is he wants?
Post by anim8rfsk
A Man Called Shenandoah goes for a walk. Petroni savagely beats the
Historian who betrayed James Kirk! They decide (make up out of whole
cloth) that the mine owners must have sent A Man Called Shenandoah! A
Man Called Shenandoah sees a dog and decides to follow it! It leads him
to the EL DORADO EMPORIUM, BEN DANIELS PROPRIETOR! The place is as much
of a wreck as the rest of the town. The dog leads him to a grave out
back! One of the lurkers three tells him he's just found Ben Daniels!
The lurker tells A Man Called Shenandoah he can't leave now. Wackiness
ensues, and only A Man Called Shenandoah walks away!
Apparently the lurker was wrong about A Man Called Shenandoah not being
able to leave.
Post by anim8rfsk
After the commercial, A Man Called Shenandoah reloads (refreshing to
see) and walks down the street, only to be ambushed by half of the
lurkers two! Petroni soon joins in the festivities. A Man Called
Shenandoah escapes!
Back at the hotel, A Man Called Shenandoah asks the Historian where
they've hidden his horse. She'll tell him but only for a price - a ride
out of town!
A Man Called Shenandoah finds his horse! Annoying, it is *not* the
speckle butt he rode in on. The Historian is too stupid to untangle the
bridles! The lesser half the the lurkers two breaks in and shoots A Man
Called Shenandoah before A Man Called Shenandoah plants him!
Now the Historian tells the sordid backstory - Petroni has reopened the
mine and is stealing ore. Petroni killed Ben Daniels to keep him quiet.
Who was Daniels going to tell, living in a ghost town?
Post by anim8rfsk
A Man Called Shenandoah and the Historian wait for Petroni to show. The
Historian whiles away the hours by complaining she's hungry. The old
dog tells A Man Called Shenandoah that Petroni is staked out across the
street! A Man Called Shenandoah shoos his horse that is not his horse
down the street and when Petroni comes out to shoot it, bravely cuts him
down from hiding!
Now that everybody but the Historian is dead, she decides to stay, in
hopes that A Man Called Shenandoah will return one day. He rides away
on the speckle butt.
Which gives a strange mental image given that most natural redheads are
freckled....

So how exactly is she supposed to survive, being the only person in town
and no one in the outside world (except A Man Called Shenandoah, who
won't tell anyone because he won't even tell people what the information
is that he won't tell them) knowing there is a viable mine next door?

The Historian and Old Dog watch as he rides speckle butt out across the
barren desert, so lonely.
With no ending narration and no gully, the end credits run over a
*still* of A Man Called Shenandoah riding through the snow. So lonely.
And no snow in the actual episode, again.

Episode 11 - The Reward
I opted to continue watching these in airing order.
As people dance downstairs, a rummy who looks suspiciously like Arnold
Ziffel's father sells a gunny a wanted poster for ... A Man Called
Shenandoah!
And why would a gunslinger need to _buy_ a wanted poster?
Okay, there's a complicated subplot that's only revealed in bits across
the ep and some of it is told by people that are probably lying, but
Shenadoah comes to town and takes up with Mudd. Mudd had been going
with Murray for a long time. I guess they were on a break (Oh-my-God if
you say that again *I'm* going to break up with you!!!). Nobody tells A
Man Called Shenandoah about this. Murray is homicidally jealous but
tells no one. Rummy spots a notorious bounty hunter in the hotel above
the dance and tells no one but Murray because reasons. Murray makes up
one phony wanted poster and gets Rummy to sell it to Gunsel (they act
like they've been having dealings before but I have no idea what they'd
have been). Murray claims he just did it to get Shenandoah out of town
and away from Mudd, but ... you don't need a DEAD OR ALIVE poster for
that! Gunsel tries to take Shenandoah at the dance but ends up in the
runaway wagon instead. Gunsel follows A Man Called Shenandoah back to
Texas (somehow getting way ahead of him in the process) and then back to
New Mexico again. Rummy spots Gunsel hiding in the livery and runs in
shouting it to Murray in front of A Man Called Shenandoah. Murray
panics and runs outside where Gunsel shoots him thinking he's A Man
Called Shenandoah. The real A Man Called Shenandoah shoots Gunsel from
behind the safety of a pillar. Hey! Then A Man Called Shenandoah says
"If the Sheriff wants to talk to me I'll be at the hotel" so there *is*
law in the New Mexico town! Shouldn't somebody have told HIM about the
poster!?!?
I don't think that back story actually helps. :P
And that's why I initially skipped it ...

Nope, and the ending credits are over the barren desert, but not the
Gully of Doom.
So now the horse won't even go near the Gully of Horse Doom. Beginning
to suspect the horse is smarter than A Man Called Shenandoah.
It's not the same horse he road in the episode either!

"The night. A momentary pause in the search. But the night can be no

Small talk ensues. Mudd's Woman complains of the lack of smoochies.
Murray comes out and claims the next dance. The mystery gunsel puts a
gun to A Man Called Shenandoah head, gets the wet kiss at the end of A
Man Called Shenandoah's hot fist for his trouble, is punched into a
buggy that runs away with him, making good his escape!
I think that metaphor needs a chiropractor now.

Mudd's Woman finally gets her smoochies! Harv has found the wanted
poster! A Man Called Shenandoah has no explanation for why there's a
$500 reward on his head, but he heads off to Soldier's Mound Texas to
find out!
Because all crooks return to the scene of the crime. Even when they
didn't actually commit a crime.
You'd think this would be a good time to find a telegraph. And I guess
there isn't any law in the town A Man Called Shenandoah is in even
though they have the only print shop for hundreds of miles. (correction

Just outside of town A Man Called Shenandoah runs into a man in a wagon,
who looks suspiciously like the police inspector from LAND OF THE GIANTS

taking A Man Called Shenandoah in!
Because A Man Called Shenandoah just shrugs his shoulders and says "Okay"?
Yeah. And up until now, Gunsel had been trying to take in Shenandoah
dead - I'm not sure why he's suddenly going for alive.
The horse had words with him, maybe.

After the commercial, stupid Gunsel trips over his own feet and gets

The Sheriff doesn't know him, and has no such wanted poster! "I'd say
whoever had this printed was trying to kill you without going out of the
house!"
Unless he's Print Shop Owner Murray wouldn't he have to get out of the
house to get it printed?
Yeah, at this point there's pretty much only the one suspect.

A Man Called Shenandoah confronts print shop owner Murray. The fake
poster was put out by the man Mudd's Woman is going to marry, to be rid
of A Man Called Shenandoah! And that man is ... Murray!!!
Seems that Sheriff in Texas knew more than he knew he knew. And how did
Murray know that A Man Called Shenandoah was going to lure his hussy
outside for smoochies so that he would need to print a fake wanted
poster to lure A Man Called Shenandoah out of town so A Man Called
Shenandoah wouldn't crash Murray and Hussy's wedding?
It's complicated.
And my description of it wasn't?
Stop making me think about this.

On GUNSMOKE, you turn your prisoner over to Marshall Dillion, and he
wires for your reward money. Here, Gunsel apparently had to take his
prisoner to the Sheriff who put out the poster in Texas. And ... he's
gonna be pretty ripe by the time you get the body there.
So why doesn't he turn A Man Called Shenandoah over to the local Sheriff
and have him wire for the money? Maybe that only works if the local
lawman is a Fed?

Also I'm not sure why he's avoiding Mudd; she didn't do anything wrong,
and her old beau is dead, and she's probably up for some condolence

I know! He shot the guy who shot Murray! That should definitely put
him in line for smoochies!!
Maybe that was the problem. Hussy didn't like Murray, just wanted his

who shot Murray for her.

And then his horse refuses to cross the gully. Again.
This ep is both gully and end announcer free.
The horse demanded perks when it renegotiated its contract.
Or he finally got it to go in the gully and it never came out.

And he isn't even the one who shot Murray!
I know! He shot the guy who shot Murray! That should definitely put
him in line for smoochies!!
Maybe that was the problem. Hussy didn't like Murray, just wanted his
money, and is upset with A Man Called Shenandoah for shooting the man
who shot Murray for her.

A Man Called Shenandoah sings!
"Once more I failed
To learn the answer.
Once more I roam
This land so lonely
Oh Shenandoah
You're doomed to wander
So roam
In search of home
'cross this land
so lonely"
And then his horse refuses to cross the gully. Again.
This ep is both gully and end announcer free.
The horse demanded perks when it renegotiated its contract.
Or he finally got it to go in the gully and it never came out.
That is a common fate for those on shows who demand too much of a pay raise.

As per DT, I'm wondering what happened with the horse and the gully at
the end... ;)

The end credits are over the gully landscape, but don't include the
gully scene.

Episode 11 - The Reward
I opted to continue watching these in airing order.
As people dance downstairs, a rummy who looks suspiciously like Arnold
Ziffel's father sells a gunny a wanted poster for ... A Man Called
Shenandoah! Opening titles are back to being over the snow.
A man comes down the stairs to the dance but ... I don't think he's the
gunsel who's face we never saw. At the dance, A Man Called Shenandoah
is hitting on the leader of Mudd's Women. He lures her outside for some
air.
"The night. A momentary pause in the search. But the night can be no
friend for a man with no name, no memory, no past. For A Man Called
Shenandoah."
Small talk ensues. Mudd's Woman complains of the lack of smoochies.
Murray comes out and claims the next dance. The mystery gunsel puts a
gun to A Man Called Shenandoah head, gets the wet kiss at the end of A
Man Called Shenandoah's hot fist for his trouble, is punched into a
buggy that runs away with him, making good his escape!
Mudd's Woman finally gets her smoochies! Harv has found the wanted
poster! A Man Called Shenandoah has no explanation for why there's a
$500 reward on his head, but he heads off to Soldier's Mound Texas to
find out!
Print shop owner Murray says goodbye. Mystery Gunsel watches from on
high.
Campfire at night. Mystery Gunsel fires into the bedroll of A Man
Called Shenandoah! A Man Called Shenandoah, hiding elsewhere, fires
back! The only casualty is the canteen of A Man Called Shenandoah.
Just outside of town A Man Called Shenandoah runs into a man in a wagon,
who looks suspiciously like the police inspector from LAND OF THE GIANTS
and turns out to be the Mystery Gunsel! He's a bounty hunter! He's
taking A Man Called Shenandoah in!
After the commercial, stupid Gunsel trips over his own feet and gets
clobbered again. A Man Called Shenandoah gets to the Sheriff alone.
The Sheriff doesn't know him, and has no such wanted poster! "I'd say
whoever had this printed was trying to kill you without going out of the
house!"
Back to New Mexico and Mudd's Woman, followed by the Gunsel. While A
Man Called Shenandoah was out of town, she got engaged!
A Man Called Shenandoah confronts print shop owner Murray. The fake
poster was put out by the man Mudd's Woman is going to marry, to be rid
of A Man Called Shenandoah! And that man is ... Murray!!!
Murray runs outside only to be shot from ambush by the Gunsel! A Man
Called Shenandoah returns the favor!
A Man Called Shenandoah leaves town. Maude gives him a sandwich. He
says to tell Mudd's Woman that she didn't see him before he left.
A Man Called Shenandoah sings!
"Once more I failed

I don't think you meant "gunsel"...

Dems & the media want Trump to be more like Obama, but then he'd
have to audit liberals & wire tap reporters' phones.
