Ghost towns, phantom gunfighters, cowboys vs aliens....it's all good. Heck even time travelers in a DeLorean are okay in my book! Yeah, that's right, I love Back To The Future Part III! But this isn't about Marty and Doc, so we'll get back to the TZ episode at hand.
Pete Grant (Doug McClure), a young gunfighter looking to prove himself against Denton, who is now restored to his former "Fastest Gun In The West" moniker. We'll just say that Fate works in funny ways.
This episode is another gem, it's got terrific atmosphere and of course anything with Martin Landau in it is good in my book.
