SIX-GUN JUSTICE SPEED LISTEN—THE RIFLEMAN

SIX-GUN JUSTICE SPEED LISTEN
THE RIFLEMAN
POW! POW! POW! POW! POW! POW! 
POW! POW! POW! POW! POW! POW! 
I know what you're thinking, did he fire twelve shots or eleven, or maybe only ten? Well, to tell you the truth, in all this excitement, I've kinda lost track myself. But being this is a modified Winchester Model 1892 rifle, with a large ring lever drilled and tapped for a set screw, the most recognizable TV rifle in the world, and would blow your head clean off, you've got to ask yourself one question, do you watch The Rifleman on reruns? Well, do you, punk?—Dirty Lucas McCain...It's time once again for another Six-Gun Justice Speed Listen. Step out of the saddle, stretch your spine, take care of your horse, then set yourself down on the closest tree stump and join Six-Gun Justice co-host Richard Prosch as he shares everything you need to know about TV's The Rifleman in under fifteen minutes...Available now on all your favorite podcast streaming platforms or by utilizing the player below...

  1. My favorite episode is the first season's "The Sheridan Story," which actually has a body count of zero. Two superb character actors guest-star; with Royal Dano as a former Confederate soldier still suffering from a war-time wound and Lawrence Dobkin as General Phil Sheridan. The former Reb wants to kill Sheridan (who was the one who shot him during the war) and the scene in which these two confront each other is brilliant. Both actors chew the scenery, but the dialogue is excellent and the characters they play are such that scenery-chewing is appropriate. Dobkin manages some subtle touches in his performance as well (a subdued "I did that?" when he sees the Reb's still unhealed wound is wonderful). It's a half-hour of well-written and well-acted character drama.

  2. The writing of the half-hour episodes of so many of the early TV Westerns was brilliantly concise and powerful. Great stuff...
