Re: Episode 416 - FOREVER

I too was very disappointed that they wouldn’t let Pernell come back; at the very least for that episode. Joe and Ben would have needed Adam so much after losing Hoss, and then with Joe’s new grief. Not only that but Pernell being there for Lorne and Michael would have meant a lot to them and to hi...

Re: Episode 135 - SHE WALKS IN BEAUTY

I think Regan, by her actions, showed that the rumors about her were true. She knew she would eventually break Hoss's heart. I thank her for recognizing it and walking away from the relationship, which showed she did at least care for Hoss. (Unlike that Helen Layton from "The Courtship" :mad ) About...

Re: Episode 327 - THE DESERTER

Love this episode. Lots of great and powerful character scenes between David Canary, Ben Johnson and also Ellen Davalos who plays Ben Johnson's wife and who manages to say more with her quiet facial expressions than most actresses say with hundreds of words. Ben Johnson is a pretty low-key actor (w...

. This was the first screen credit for Ena Hartman, who played Caroline, the daughter of the hotel janitor. She was also in the first episode of "Adam-12". MeTV.COM has a "things you didn't know" article about the episode, and one of the little tidbits is: It was a big week for Ena Hartman. Later th...

Re: Episode 288 - THE PRICE OF SALT

You might also recognize her - well, at least her voice - as "Zira" from the 3 original "Planet Of The Apes" movies.

Re: Episode 80 - GABRIELLE

Diane Mountford was a friend of Michael's son, Mark, who was trying to break into acting. She did a terrific job as Gabrielle. I agree; it's not easy to play "blind" but I think she did a good job. I appreciate that she ends up with family and they're both happy, but I've always thought she would h...

Re: Episode 166 - THE PRESSURE GAME

I think part of the "Laura" problem was the episodes were all written by different writers. (Even Laura's house changed.) For a 4-episode arc, you would think they would make an effort to write her character more consistently. The writers / directors: The Waiting Game - Ed Adamson / Richard Sarafian...

Re: Episode 416 - FOREVER

Those are my thoughts. Anybody agree? Anybody hate me? I don't agree, but I don't hate you either. I didn't watch Bonanza when it originally aired, so my reaction to the episode is different than someone who watched it when it originally aired. But I do think they could have had a happy ending. Rat...

Re: Episode 199 - THE RETURN

Was that actually Lorne Greene kicking in the barn door to that explosive fire? His son said he was fearless, but did Paramount really let a major star risk his life like this??? It looks like him. He wasn't really close to the flame, but if he had tripped... there is a slight delay from when he ta...

Re: Episode 65 - ELIZABETH, MY LOVE

I just listened to the DVD episode commentary by the writer, Anthony Lawrence. It was really interesting. A couple items of note: - If you've ever wanted to see Alex Sharpe, the stunt man who wrote 7 Bonanza episodes including "Ponderosa Matador" and "The Hayburner", he plays the bodyguard of Mandib...
