  • Unfortunately, folks in Sheridan still believe Pratt is Legend, and it's a bit much for the drink-loving Pratt

      One of the things that worked against Legend is that it was on the new UPN network. They didn’t have the stamina to let the series grow and really find its strength. Still, what we do have are a collection of tales in which actors Richard Dean Anderson and John DeLancie can really work their magic.

      In this second installment of the series, Mr. Pratt Goes to Sheridan, the Legend legend has grown considerably since


      we last saw him, and Pratt just isn’t comfortable with it. His new contract with his publisher calls for him to write 5 books a year while residing in Colorado with Bartok (DeLancie). As Bartok described it in the pilot, Pratt provides the imagination and he brings in the science to make it happen. Unfortunately, folks in Sheridan still believe Pratt is Legend, and it’s a bit much for the drink-loving Pratt.

      Pratt’s weakness ...


      • is that anytime someone says they read his books, he gets suckered in. In this case, a bank robber named Gentlemen Jim Siringo is the compliment giver. He needs Legend’s help. It seems he’s a bank robber that only robs from insured banks, and he gives to the poor. He’s a Robin Hood of bank robbers, apparently, only now he’s been framed for murder. He puts his life in Legend’s hands, something
        that makes Pratt very nervous but which also catapults him into action.

        Stephen Baldwin plays the young Siringo, while Robert Donner appears as the town’s mayor. Both give convincing performances. Baldwin has a poignant scene with Anderson where the similarities of their characters can’t help but move the viewer. It’s unexpected and thought provoking, especially for the Pratt character.

        All ends well, of course, and it’s fun to see early forensics used in this offbeat western.
