TV show description:
This TV series is based on the true story of former Las Vegas Sheriff Ralph Lamb (Dennis Quaid), a fourth-generation rancher tasked with bringing order to Las Vegas in the 1960s. It’s a gambling and entertainment mecca that’s emerging from the tumbleweeds.

Ralph Lamb wants to be left in peace to run his ranch, but Las Vegas is now swelling with outsiders and corruption which are intruding on his simple life. Recalling Lamb’s command as a military police officer during World War II, the Mayor appeals to his sense of duty to look into a murder of a casino worker.

This begins Lamb’s clash with Vincent Savino (Michael Chiklis), a ruthless Chicago gangster who’s moved West and plans to make Vegas his own. (The character is based on real-life crime boss Marcello Giuseppe Caifano.)

Lamb has two deputies who help him keep law and order. His diplomatic and even-keeled brother is Deputy Jack Lamb (Jason O’Mara). Deputy Dixon Lamb (Taylor Handley) is his charming but impulsive son.

The ambitious Assistant District Attorney, Katherine O’Connell (Carrie-Anne Moss), grew up on the ranch next to the Lambs and also lends a hand in preserving justice.

Series Finale

Episode #21 — Sons of Nevada
After Porter Gainsley’s bombing of the Tumbleweed and attempt on Katherine’s life, Lamb and Savino decide to team up to take out their common adversary once and for all. To prove his commitment to the task, Lamb hands over the tapes with the recordings from the bug in Savino’s phone, and then the mobster and former sheriff get to planning their assault on Gainsley.

Since the ranching mogul is too heavily protected at his home, they decide to target him at a livestock auction, but that plan goes awry when Dixon shows up and holds Gainsley at gunpoint. A firefight breaks out and Lamb is forced to save his son and flee, giving Gainsley time to regroup and amass more artillery for the coming war.

When Jack is ousted as interim Sheriff by more of Gainsley’s men, he and Dixon join forces with Lamb and Savino, and together they craft a plan that involves using Jones the hitman to put Gainsley in a corner. Jones plays his part well and leads Gainsley and his thugs into a trap, where Lamb gives him his freedom as a reward.

After an intense firefight, Lamb gets the drop on Gainsley and decides to arrest him instead of killing him, setting the proper example for his son and staying true to his morals.

In the end, Lamb gets his Sheriff job back, putting him at odds with Savino and his plans for growth in Vegas yet again.

Meanwhile, Jack plans to propose to Mia, but his plans are derailed when she breaks up with him after finding out about the bug he planted in Savino’s phone.

Tommy pursues Mia even harder, and the two wind up spending the night together. After Gainsley is taken into custody, Jack goes to Mia’s place to fight for her, but is crushed when he discovers Tommy there with her — in nothing but a bath robe.
First aired: May 10, 2013

It’s a great show and I love that its a period piece. I love watching it for the old fashion and cars. The writing and acting are excellent. I’m betting Vegas will be a big hit if you give it time.

GREAT CASTING…GREAT SCRIPTS…GREAT ENJOYMENT…VIVA “VEGAS”!!!!!!!!

As far as I am concerned, I could watch an episode every single day…I would love to see two hour episodes…I would love to see a full length movie…everyone is perfectly cast in their roles and the script is anything but boring! I care about these characters…they are not flat…they have depth…even Sorvino…and I don’t just mean the 6ft deep hole kind of depth found in the desert north of Vegas…actually, I didn’t want to like Sorvino, but I truly enjoy the “bad guys” just as much as I enjoy the “good guys”! Kudos to the writers and the director! Well done!

Keep this show! Love the Lambs (especially Dixon), Sorvino, his hoods and the very interesting women that you find in Vegas….especially love Mia’s character…cool, highly intelligent, well educated- “book wise” and “street wise”-compassionate and strong…very, very strong…have never seen a character portrayal quite like hers…and played so brilliantly by Sarah Jones…

Do not destroy these characters! Do not destroy this show! RENEW VEGAS! May it last many, many seasons…

Please, please, please leave Vegas on. It’s another really good solid show and has a great cast. If you cancel Vegas and Golden Boy I may have to find another station to watch I have been dissapointed many times in recent years because of all the shows you guys cancel you pull us in get us hooked then leave us hanging. Come on CBS do us all a favor and keep something good on for a change.
