Picks and Pans Review: The Dooley Brothers

UPDATED 07/30/1979 at 01:00 AM EDT Originally published 07/30/1979 at 01:00 AM EDT

CBS (8 p.m. ET)

Sprung from prison after 30 years, a pair of crotchety old gunmen challenge the decrepit sheriff who arrested them in this failed pilot. The result is a delightful geriatric Western in which the only thing that bites the dust is the genre itself, a victim of dead-eye parody. Garrett Brown and Robert Peirce are amusing as the two young Dooley bone-heads, but the oldsters—Dub Taylor, Rusty Lee and Grizzly Green—gun down everything in sight except each other and limp off with the show.
