The 1960s feminist plot and the horrible attempt at an accent (sorry Marlo) makes this episode quite cringe-worthy for me.

Although there are many "incredible" (meaning not believable) things in this episode, the one that strikes me as most incredible is that the horse pulling the fireworks stays while the things zoom and boom and spark. In reality, that horse would have taken off, dragging the wagon behind it and setting off fires across the Ponderosa. Of course, we know someone held the horse but it always irked me because that poor horse must have been terrified! Where's the HSUS when you need them?

Amusing episode. You would never see that casting decision today. Would be fun to have a Marlo Thomas commentary track - although she likely disowns the role.

Dan Blocker with a stand out comedic performance as usual.

From the behind the scene pictures I've seen Marlo looked like she really enjoyed being on Bonanza, although I agree, an Asian woman should have played this role. My favorite BTS from this was all 4 of the guys being naughty, trying to impress a friend of Pernell's that was on the set! :ha

Marlo Thomas wasn't really the right actress to play an Asian woman but I love all of the BTS pictures I've seen. Marlo joined right in joking with them and they had a great time. I love Marlo for taking over as spokesperson for St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital that her father had started. She has a good heart as did Danny Thomas. :thumbup
