The Hulu original series, “Quick Draw,” is a half-hour procedural comedy set in the Old West. It has, however, something of a modern sensibility to it. In this exclusive clip from Monday’s upcoming episode, we see that sensibility in a video for a “whiskey support group for not drinking whiskey.”
Part of episode 5 — available on Hulu starting on Monday (Aug. 26) — the clip shows what happens when the good citizens of Great Bend, Kansas gather together for what they thought was a group for drinking whiskey. Alas, it seems that the Alcoholics Anonymous model isn’t such a hit with the men (and woman) of the frontier.
“Quick Draw” follows the crime-fighting adventures of Sheriff John Henry Hoyle (John Lehr) and his sidekick, Deputy Eli (Nick Brown) out on the frontier world of the Old West. Although Hoyle is a man of learning — and therefore suspect in this rough-and-tumble world — the townspeople gradually accept his sharp mind, forensic expertise and excellent shooting skills (not necessarily in that order).
