Sheer Terror episode #113 - 3 of 3 pages

I think Millie gave too much information when asked who those people were riding into town. (Lucas and Mark) She did not have to tell them Lucas was going to help transfer the money. That put Marks life in jeopardy even more. Thanks wildwest!

Did ya' notice Mark threw the saddle bags on and didn't tie them down? He put his hand back to hold it. I did that once and they slide off. I bet they were in a hurry to get that scene done so they didn't give him time to tie them down. Whoopee! Not too pleasant an experience when those bags fall off.
I did notice the horse that Johnny rode back to the ranch for Niles was a close second to Razor. Razor has two white socks in the rear and Blueboy one. I can always tell if it's Blueboy he also has a few white hairs on his forehead, Blueboy was a bay with a that tan nose. Razor sometimes is hard to tell. They use the same bit on every horse he rides. Oh by the way I LOVE JOHNNY HANDLING THOSE TEAMS ~ He was so good he never got in the way when they were stopping them! Loved the way he picked up the rein he dropped in The Deadly Wait...
Am I stuck on Johnny or what???

This episode must have been shot in another town, for one thing North Fork didn't have the name of the town on their Stage Depot sign and another thing, it looks like they intentionally blurred the name of the town out. Cowgirl!

The villains, Mr. Sloan and Andy, take Milly hostage 24 hours before the stagecoach is going to arrive with the money. They then have her open her store and pretend all is normal for an entire day, while they watch her. Apparently, their reason is to so that they can pop out of the store at the right moment to rob the stage...ok, but why grab her 24 hours in advance? Why run the risk that she might tip somebody off? Just enter the store 30 minutes before the stage, and hold her hostage at that point.

I think this qualifies more as a "plot hole" than a blooper. Definitely not a "blooper!" You know, a person can take just about any script apart (or novel for that matter), in one way or another, if that is his or her goal. The film industry is especially susceptible, what with all the freeze-frame gizmos we have at our fingertips in this day and age. While that pursuit can in itself be diverting, it can get in the way of simply being entertained which, after all, was the creator's original intent... don't cha think? What say you? You be the judge. Thanks Renewed Fan!
