I'm not speaking of Dennis Weaver as an actor when I make this comment.. I'm speaking of his character Chester. I didn't care for his character. In my eyes he was weak. Everytime some little something would come up, instead of trying to solve the problem himself, it was that same old Mister Dillon!! Mister Dillon!! Everytime I hear this it makes my skin crawl! Festus, however, was tough.. he didn't wait for Mister Dillon. If there was a problem he took charge, took a stand, and was a brave sidekick to Dillon. Festus could be relied upon no matter how tough it got. He was brave and stood by Marshall Dillon.
