Legend - Mr. Pratt Goes to Sheridan
Episode 2 “Mr. Pratt Goes to Sheridan”
Here we are for the second episode in the one and only season of Legend as Ernest returns to Sheridan to make it his home both for the advantages being friends with the Professor provides as well as some gentle pushing from his publisher. Naturally the townsfolk are overjoyed to have their hero return but Ernest is still having problems adapting to life as his alter ego Nicodemus Legend and things get a little complicated when a notorious bank robber and accused murderer (Jimmy Siringo ) states he will only give himself up to Legend in person. There is of course much more to the story and much to his chagrin Ernest finds himself in Tucson along with the Professor investigating the bank robbery and death of a guard and planning for the arrival of Jim.
Well I said I was going to be watching the series and I decided I might as well make it part of the podcast although I may have to revise the idea of recording with my ipad, the audio is a little flat/dull. Anyhow the episode was a lot of fun although the plot was not unfamiliar to me but then again if I had seen this episode when it was originally released then the shows that came after would have been picking plot points from this. Originality isn’t quite dead and ultimately it’s how you present a story to the audience and the writers by combining good old fashioned integrity and honesty with modern forensics gave us a twist that worked very well. There was also plenty of humour as you would expect and a healthy dose of western themed hijinks, all told and enjoyable episode of television.
The next podcast will probably be looking at the first season of SG1 as a See It/Skip it overview and look for the further advances of Legend in the feed over the next few months. As always reviews and ratings are appreciated as is any social media sharing. If you want to come on the show and talk Stargate then please get in touch, I would love to have some new voices on the podcast as well as drawing on the many people that helped us through nearly 400 episode of the Gatecast.
