| This one bored me...
overly repetitive theme song boring watching everyone screwing each other

"The Young Country" was an installment of "The ABC Movie of the Week" and is currently posted on so many of these made for TV movies. I generally enjoyed these films...especially the really goofy ones involving alien impregnations ("The Stranger Within"), witches in Old Salem ("Crowhaven Farm") and weird monsters living up in the chimney ("Don't Be Afraid of the Dark"). They were neat because they were edgy and different. Edgy and different is NOT what I would call "The Young Country"...a film that seems an awful lot like the TV show "Maverick" and several other movies I've seen over the years.

The story involves a couple gamblers who try to outdo each other-- and the big prize is retrieving some stolen money. To do so, one poses as a lawman. There's more to it than that...but I don't really care to talk about it more.

The bottom line is that folks trying to film flam each other is a dull topic to me...and this treatment is even duller than usual. Perhaps you'll enjoy just wasn't to my taste.
