Re: Episode 139 - THE TOY SOLDIER

...Also, the Indian who throws his lance and kills McDermott's right hand man, has committed murder and no one seems to care. The man was just standing there and the Indian (Esther's brother) slaughters him. Where are the Cartwright standards--or anyone's standards? You tell the man to drop his wea...

In the case of the actress Julia, the stumbling block was not her age, it was her ambition. She was not about to settle down on the Ponderosa and be content with being a rancher's wife.
I absolutely agree with this. Julia wanted to be a STAR. She didn't really care about anything else.

Adam says that their Thoroughbred was not as "thorough" as he thought. I bet with a much smaller rider, that horse would've beaten Blackie. But I suspect it wasn't just a race between horses. Adam himself was trying to beat his bratty little brother. :grin
There ya go. :grin

Re: Episode 119 - THE LAST HAIRCUT

I had commented on this a few years ago but let me add, I do wish they had actually shaved Perry Lopez' head for the last scene. The scene would have been so much better, more dramatic, had they shown his hair falling away and then for him to actually be bald. That rubber bald cap just ruins it for...

Re: Episode 72 - BROKEN BALLAD

I like the friendship between Adam and Ed in this episode. One thing that bugs me is when Adam calls out Billy in the middle of the street. This is how innocent people get shot! But this happens a lot on westerns: spectators just standing around while two people are getting ready to shoot it out. I'...

Re: Episode 146 - HOSS AND THE LEPRECHAUNS

Yeah, I thought it was strange that people were saying "little green men" instead of "little men in green". The history of that phrase is interesting. I remember there was an episode of "Star Trek" where the Enterprise went back to the 1960s and someone said something about "not believing in little ...

Re: Episode 361 - A MATTER OF CIRCUMSTANCE

Hi all, am very late to this party, but I'd heard there was a missing scene in AMOC; after Ben finds Joe on the kitchen floor and before we see the doc standing by the bed talking about the accuracy of the book. Anyone seen it the missing scene? The gap between when Ben finds Joe and the scene with...

Re: Episode 361 - A MATTER OF CIRCUMSTANCE

The "lost" episodes weren't really lost. Bonanza was released for syndication in 2 packages. The first package, which contained all the season 1-6 episodes (except "Lothario Larkin" for some reason) was much more popular, so people started referring to the 2nd package as "lost". The "lost episode" p...

Re: Episode 92 - LOOK TO THE STARS

This episode is as relevant today as it was 50 years ago... maybe more so. Sometimes prejudice isn't as blatant as Mr. Norton's, but we're all guilty of making judgments based on appearance, race, accent... so many things. I think it's more dangerous to think "oh, I don't have any prejudices" than "...
