MeTV is almost done airing Season 7. I now understand why this season is part of Bonanza's "lost episodes" package .... it really hasn't been very good. :sad

But The Trouble with Jamie is one of the few stand-out episodes, IMO. It struck all the right notes between humor and drama and strained father-son relationships. At no point did I feel the storyline dragged at all. The actor who played Jamie was well-cast (typical of Bonanza), he was fun to watch. His spoiled impudence made his comeuppances all the more satisfying (such as Hoss dunking him into the horse trough or Ben giving him a good tanning. Ha!)

The Cartwrights sure taught Jamie a thing or two! I love this episode and the gifs!

My Favorite episode.... So good, Ben gave us a solid demonstration of being a fatherly figure with a young boy without a frame, without rules and without limites. Ben gave him a very good lesson and taught him many things about right and wrong, and respect. It was a hard and painful lesson, but a very necessary one. Perfect Ben. Very good job.

This is one of my least favorite episodes. IMO, Ben (and Joe and Hoss) put up with Jaime's behavior for far too long. And at the end, when the boy does seem to be on the right road to behavior, he's handed back to his father simply because his father promises to do better.
