Re: Episode 406 - THE SADDLE STIFF

I like this episode. I like to see Ben doing ranch work, instead of just signing checks. And we get a realistic idea of how a large ranch would be managed.

Re: Episode 316 - MARK OF GUILT

. I was reading an article about "best souvenirs" and came across this mention of "chops": The Chinese have used seals colloquially known as chops to sign artwork and documents since the Shang dynasty (about 1600 to 1046 BC) — think of the square red mark in the corner of Chinese paintings. You can ...

Re: Episode 402 - A HOME FOR JAMIE

At one of the Bonanza conventions, this was one of the episodes we watched on a movie screen, along with Mitch Vogel and his stunt guy Rick Drown (the "stunt runt"). After the scene where Jamie and his grandfather go flying off the wagon, somebody hollered at Mitch "Oh my god, are you all right?" :l...

Re: Episode 18 - A HOUSE DIVIDED

i didn’t quite understand why Kyle sought Little Joe and how he knew of him. I can assume he had a relationship with his mother before she met Ben, but how did he know she had a son so many years later? I also don’t quite know why he needed Joe. Kyle was able to do business in other cities by himse...

Re: Episode 144 - THE WAITING GAME

My favorite part of this episode is at the very end, when Laura starts counting with Peggy. It was really spooky, and Kathie Browne played it like someone who was descending into a trance. Then Peggy brings her out of it - "No, Mommy, he's dead, he's never coming back, never!"

Re: Episode 430 - THE HUNTER

The last show filmed was "The Marriage Of Theodora Duffy", but since it didn't center on a Cartwright, they changed the order the episodes aired to end with "The Hunter". Like other fans, I wish they had allowed ML to write a final episode; even if PR didn't return, a family centered episode with Be...

Re: Episode 110 - THE DEADLY ONES

I really liked the General Diaz character; he had some dignity, and I think he played well with Ben. Leo Gordon was his usual effective villain. BTW, he was married to an actress named Lynn Cartwright. She played the older Geena Davis character in "A League Of Their Own". I was not crazy about the M...

Re: Episode 122 - THE ACTRESS

I can't fault her completely. She was ambitious and went after what she wanted. I sometimes wonder if this episode was written as an almost "inside joke" about some actors and how they can be so single minded in their quest for fame. The BZ script writers were obviously very familiar with the actin...

Re: Episode 96 - BLESSED ARE THEY

The kids are adorable, and I liked Ben turning into "King Solomon". However, I don't like the spooky part of the plot; in fact, I think the episode would have been better without the Reverend character.

Re: Episode 203 - THE DEBT

The geographic scenery is markedly improved over that of previous seasons, something that I have come to associate with the season 7-and-on era. I am a huge Adam fan, but I find much to love about the seasons after his departure; I'm probably the *only* Adam fan who does! I think they did seem to f...
