Having just watched The Dream Riders, I came up with three observations that I couldn't resist sharing.

Firstly, in the scene near the beginning of the episode where the major is talking to Ben and the boys in front of the hearth, and the camera is on the major and Hoss, DB is clearly reacting to something that ML is doing off camera. He looks like he's trying to keep a straight face. Oh to have been a fly on the wall...

I then thought it was funny that the major's daughter Diana arrived with three little bags of luggage, yet she had at least three changes of outfit, and some of the dresses probably had hoops or lots of petticoats! I want her clothes! They clearly fold up very small. I'd never need to put a suitcase in the hold of a plane ever again...

Lastly, and is always the case - PR looks DDG as usual. Just sayin'... :grin

I never noticed DB watching something ML is doing. Now I have to go back and watch it! My favorite scene is when Hoss sends Joe for a ride and finally lets him down. Joe bops him a good one! Fun episode.

Yes. A fun episode but I can't help but wonder whatever happened to the balloon.

I know! They just let it float away. On the other hand I'll wager that Adam went after it.

I love Hoss' enthusiasm for the whole concept of flying. He is really keen to give it a go. And Joe, of course, with his well documented fear of heights, is adamant about not going up in it. Hoss plays a really cruel prank on little brother by sending him up in the balloon, so deserves the punch Joe lands on him.
Love Adam's sarcastic comment, after he picks up Diana and the private, in town. He says something about the ride home is going to be an interesting one, as those two obviously have a history.
Will have to watch that scene in the living room, again. Can't say I noticed Dan looking at Mike, but they did used to play tricks on each other, to try and make each other laugh during a scene - bad boys LOL

I hadn´t noticed before but yes, at one point Dan seems to be distracted by something Mike is doing. I read somewhere that they used to pinch one another whenever they were standing close together in a scene, in particular when the scene was dramatic.

Michael said that when he was on camera, Dan used to stand next to the cameraman and make faces at him to make him mess up his lines. Maybe Michael was paying Dan back. Boys will be boys!
