Re: Episode 182 - THE SAGA OF SQUAW CHARLIE

The mother of this episodes angers me because she is like many who prejudice. She has no reason to hate Charlie but she calls him dirty and doesn't wish for her daughter to have anything to do with him. Kudos to the writers of Bonanza for writing this episode during a time of civil unrest.

Re: Episode 252 - JUSTICE

I'm more of a fan of the first 6 years of Bonanza because those are the Adam years, but this is one of those after Adam ones that I like. Beau Bridges plays both the shy clerk and a killer very well. His uneasy nature is evident throughout the episode. I love the battle between he and Joe at the end...

Re: Episode 33 - SHOWDOWN

This episode is fine for an early one. I have to say however, that Ellie McClure was maddening to me. She was a little to Marilyn Monroe breathy for me.

Re: Episode 164 - ENTER THOMAS BOWERS

This is s great episode although it could have been over in the first 15 minutes if they'd had just asked him to sing! Lol I like that Bonanza took the time to delve into social issues and although I do love the ending and I know it's only an hour show, i feel that Mr. Bowers was a little too willin...

Re: Episode 158 - NO LESS A MAN

Any Adam episode is a good episode, except A Knight to Remember. I will watch it, but it's definitely my least favorite Adam episode. On this one, I do love the interaction between Adam and Roy. I did find it odd however, that Adam was willing to stand up for Roy but Ben had to think about it. I kno...

Re: Episode 154 - BULLET FOR A BRIDE

This is a good episode until the end. Ugghhh. Ben is so wonderful he sends the swindlers on their way with a letter for a job in San Francisco. Obviously Papa Marxus and Lon didn't want to work or they wouldn't be looking for a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. Why couldn't the Ben Cartwright o...

Re: Episode 9 - MR. HENRY COMSTOCK

Not one of my favorite episodes because it seems long and drawn out. Initially they meet an "old timer" who had been swindled which sets up the memory sequence. They meet Henry Comstock, then there is a dance to go to but Hoss and Henry go to the diggings and Hoss gets into a ruckus, Little Joe gets...

Re: Episode 9 - MR. HENRY COMSTOCK

This may be my least favorite first season episode. First because the "history" is mostly from Dan De Quille's book, The Big Bonanza , and when it came to writing history, Dan De Quille (real name William Wright) clung to the same motto Mark Twain did -- "Never let the truth get in the way of a goo...

Re: Episode 104 - A HOT DAY FOR A HANGING

I thought it was a nail biter but had a bad ending. The ending made no sense: the sheriff gets a spine after Ben steps in. If the townsfolk were so intent upon hanging Hoss, his dad's little speech wouldn't have made any difference. Having it be an Adam episode would have been nice just because I lo...
