Have Gun – Will Travel’s Paladin [Richard Boone] lives by a unique code of honor that does not preclude the enjoyment of many pleasures. Wine, women, song – he loves them all. But as a greedy rancher finds out in, The Race, an episode from first half of the series’ fifth season, that also doesn’t preclude him from an appreciation of honor and maintaining a standard of honor, himself. It’s the combination of seeming contradictions that make Paladin so interesting – and why the series ran for six seasons and two hundred and twenty-five episodes.
