Episode One (3/3/18)

Summary: In the Old West, Eli arrives in the little town of Charlesville to take a job as the town's new rabbi, but there's been a mix-up, and soon he's reluctantly sworn in as sheriff. And he already has an enemy - Adam, the man who wanted the sheriff job... and who went to Hebrew school with Eli. He and Eli had the same Bar Mitzvah, but Eli got to read the entire Torah parshah, and everybody forgot Adam's Bar Mitzvah. Adam challenges Eli to a duel at high noon, but since it's Saturday, Eli has to hire a Shabbos goy to fire the gun for him...

Episode Two (4/14/18) - Playoffs Round 1!

Summary: As the gunfight begins, Eli's mother, Mrs. Goldfarb arrives. She is largely oblivious to the gunfight; she just wants to see (and nag) her boy. Eventually she gets shot - except she really wasn't; it's just a plot for Eli's sympathy. After many histrionics - during which Eli has a nostalgic chat with Adam - Mr. Johnson rushes in to report that the Nazis are back! Wait, what? In the Old West? They're back? Yes. Apparently they were here before... and now they're back. Well. That clarifies everything.
