An urban western, duh!

Looks cool, progosk. Thanks!

Part of me enjoyed this, part of me wants to laugh. The infusion of the "American Western" genre seems more of a surface-deep anachronism than anything else. Eastwood, on the other hand, mastered the art of saying something without talking: it's all about attitude. Here, the juxtaposition of modern day elements with cowboy outfits feels uncomfortable. Still, the episode is beautifully shot.

Aside from putting a western in a modern, urban setting, it seemed to be pretty cliché.
