Lawmen: Bass Reeves Repeats A Big Problem After 1883's Historical Inaccuracie

Lawmen: Bass Reeves started to derail from its historical track in Lawmen: 

Bass Reeves episode 5, when the show mostly skimmed over

one of Bass's biggest real-life rivals, Jim Webb.

The long conflict between Webb and Reeves could have

been documented over the course of an entire episode,

however, it was reduced to just one introductory scene

that was mostly a shootout ending with Reeves killing Webb without much build-up.

Webb had no lines in the series, making his character feel like a missed opportunity

and a clear indication that historical accuracy would no longer be the driving force.
