bak of my head the hole way through I'm thinking even Red Dwarf had a better Western than this...
What do you mean, "even?"

In its prime, Red Dwarf regularly handled quite a few sci-fi concepts with more depth than many more serious SF shows. But yeah, Gunmen of the Apocalypse was pretty cool. Although, Western setting aside, a more pertinent comparison from the Dwarf library would probably be The Inquisitor, except in that case it was the rogue justice-seeking simulant who had the ability to travel through time.
I mean "even" because Red Dwarf went to shit for a while.

They didn't know what to do with all the money that came with success.

Possibly my least favourite episode and then I buy a 300 page hardcover which is just an adaptation of that same episode strung out to 8 times the size.
