Yeah, amazing isn't it! I think that is one of the strong points of the show. Compared to the other bad guys Al ain't that bad... Ok, he
bitchslapped Trixie, killed Alma Garret's husband to get a goldclaim, has a commissionair's throat cut, kills "one-of-his-own" to get back into grace with chinese mob boss Wu etc etc, but he also kills the Reverend so the doesn't suffer anymore, forms a "government" and does everything he can to prevent Hearst from taking over town and also to save his own ass

The other characters are kinda worse... Toliver is plain evil, Farnum is a conniving little bastard that begs for mercy when he's caught and Bullock should take some anger management classes.

It's just brilliant writing with an amazing and charismatic cast! Hopefully the 2 planned tv movies live up to my expectations...
The box said 'Requires Windows 95 or better'. So I installed LINUX.
