Whip Wilson vs. the Two-Gun Gang: A Serial
by Randall L. Whipkey
Next week, Home Theater Cable is treating subscribers to a
new six-episode serial starring Clint Wormwood as hero Whip
Wilson in action against Two-Gun Gurney and his band of outlaws.
In each of the first five installments, Whip captures a
different member of the Two-Gun Gang before ending the episode
in cliffhanging peril caused by the remaining villain(s)--danger
from which the good guy somehow escapes at the beginning of the
next episode of the serial. Whip finally earns his white hat by

the railroad tracks and continues with Whip capturing the
- The Saguaro Sam capture isn't in the same installment as
the snake-filled pit cliffhanger.
- The escape that the hero makes just before taking in Two-Gun
Gurney to face justice isn't the one from being trapped in
a burning cabin.
- Neither the tied-to-the-railroad-tracks cliffhanger nor the
bounding-boulder peril is in the same episode as the scene
in which Whip sneaks up behind and nabs Backshootin' Brophy.
