Re: Episode 147 - THE PRIME OF LIFE

Do you think maybe the writer just wanted a reason to name Adam "Bull of the Woods"? My daughters are I are not watching Bonanza in order, and all have lists of episodes we want to watch, so whenever we have time for a few eps, there's always a bit of discussion on which episodes we're going to wat...

Re: Episode 26 - THE AVENGER

I enjoyed the Cartwright scenes (except for a few gripes already mentioned above), but I hated the episode as a whole, because I was so angry that it was basically an episode for another show, pretending to be a Bonanza ep. It wasn't that uncommon to do that sort of spin off episode in the 1960s, bu...

Re: Episode 48 - THE COURTSHIP

But I could never understand Hoss' combination of refusing to believe that Helen was a gambling addict and/or his declarations that even if it was true, it wouldn't make any difference to him. I thought that was classic Hoss logic, actually. :laughing He's leading with his emotions there, and that'...

Re: Episode 141 - CALAMITY OVER THE COMSTOCK

I've always been a big fan of Stephanie Powers and she did an awesome job in this episode. I won't go so far as to say Stephanie Powers could do no wrong as an actress. But I will say, if it ever happened, I haven't seen it. And I agree with whoever it was who said she goes over the top -- I just t...

Re: Episode 5 - ENTER MARK TWAIN

I was not a fan of this version of Mark Twain. The actor's fine, I just didn't like the way he was written. Too cutesy for me, I guess, just doesn't "feel" like the books and stories and articles I've read by Samuel Clemens. It would be interesting to know or to read any stories of Clemens he wrote ...

Re: Episode 4 - THE PAIUTE WAR

There was some good Adam stuff in this. :yes This episode is based on an actual incident (or a chain of them). I tried to write a "short summary" of the actual history, but the episode touches on so many different things, it's really long! For a TL;DR version, the historical person James Williams pr...

Re: Episode 2 - THE SUN MOUNTAIN HERD

It seemed like the writer was purposefully throwing in the word, "bonanza", everywhere he could just because he could. I wondered if someone at NBC saw the pilot, and complained, "But you never explain why it's called Bonanza ," and the authors were just trying to make him happy. Thank goodness the...

I am too, when it comes to costuming. Sticking to history would have seriously cramped Adam's style!

Re: What does your nick stand for?

I've used variations on this nickname since before there was an internet. Back when you had to dial up particular discussion boards, I was Trixie True. Then, after the Internet came along, I went to register somewhere and Trixie True was taken, so I gave 'her' a middle name, Nicole. So it's TNTrue f...
