Very good episodes. I recorded them when they were on Encore Western. INSP has Bonanza's lost episodes if you get that.

Last night I watched Ride the Wind. I like the episodes with historical references (e.g. Philip Diedesheimer-Story, which is one of my favorite). The sciptwriters were able to tell good stories and not hair-rising tales. Especially for me as an European/Austrian it was very interesting to learn about the Pony Express. Otherwise I would have never giving thoughts about such a topic.
There is the moving scene when Ben stands in the Livingroom and is talking to Hop Sing, Adam is away :sob :sob :sob :sob and Joe and Hoss are not working anymore for the ranch, the house is empty and silent now … So that’s the fate Ben Cartwright is expecting ? (It happend when you think about the sequels.) This is not my Bonanzaworld …

I find that scene very touching. Also informative - Ben asks Hop Sing if he remembers when Marie was there, which tells us that Hop Sing has been at the Ponderosa since Joe was either very young or not yet born.

Clearly a favorite of mine. :horse ML does some of his best work on this episode. Not only him, but the casting is good all the way around. Those clever writers even managed to get Ben and Hoss into the action without it appearing contrived.

This Episode is one of my favorites, too. I'm interested in history and so we can learn more about the Old West! :fasthorse
