Re: The Big Valley

There were many times when The Big Valley stole ideas from Bonanza. In the episode [sorry-forgot the title] when Heath first goes to the ranch he races a train and jumps the tracks exactly like Joe did on The Stallion! I loved both shows but many shows copied each other. :modeller You got that righ...

Re: The Big Valley

Nobody on those westerns sustained any serious damage as long as they were the series regulars. But if you were a guest star and got shot, well adios! Adam Cartwright was injured a number of times. But when Pernell Roberts guest starred in an episode of The Big Valley, I think it was "Cage of Eagles...

Re: Episode 82 - THE TALL STRANGER

I agree with all that's been said that Hoss didn't really put that big of a beating on Connors. Hoss could have. He could have killed him too, but deep down Hoss's hatred for him was tempered by his morals. He felt such disgust and contempt for Connors that he wanted to make him pay in some way. i t...

Re: Episode 7 - THE SAGA OF ANNIE O'TOOLE

January- don't you KNOW that "everywhere" is close to the Ponderosa? :grin The fellas could make it to town and back twice in one day. Laura Dayton's ranch appeared to be just over the hill. Aunt Lil took a ride over and got there in no time. In fact, all their friends seemed to be a stone's throw a...

Re: Episode 176 - SQUARE DEAL SAM

I don't think the rest of the C's were surprised at Hoss's behavior. In "The Scapegoat", they talk about Hoss always "bringing home strays". The Washburns hardly looked like a dangerous duo anyway. :grin In "The Frenchman", Joe invited Francois to stay at the Ponderosa and he had just threatened to ...

Re: Episode 178 - OLD SHEBA

Wow that's some interesting story about Dan Blocker. I'll bet Old Sheba was one of the few animals strong enough to toss him fifteen feet! :grin It's a funny episode. But Joe and Hoss were pretty dumb in this one. :yes Did they really think they could use an elephant as a "workhorse"? And where were...

Re: The Barkleys Were in Danger When they Left the Ranch

THAT photo. Suddenly I understand where my liking for Han Solo came from (yes, I mean in the '77 original). What did Laura do, really? What did Laura DO? Well apparently she spent a lot of time hating her husband! :grin She seemed like a pretty cold woman and when he sought "comfort" elsewhere, it ...

Re: The Barkleys Were in Danger When they Left the Ranch

So true, nothing ever rattled Victoria Barkley! She was thrown from horses, punched and had guns pointed at her and she never lost her cool. I think she was the type of character that Bonanza had in mind when they said that Laura Dayton would be a tough, no nonsense frontier woman. But unfortunately...

The Barkleys Were in Danger When they Left the Ranch

I have been watching some of The Big Valley lately and it occurred to me that the Barkleys had the same problem as the Cartwrights when they venture away from the family home. They get kidnapped, robbed, beaten, shanghaied, etc. It's a wonder these people ever ventured far from home. :grin In an epi...

Re: The Big Valley

I just watched a few episodes and it seems like Heath got shot or beaten up in every one. But for a guy who sustained so many injuries he came back the next week to look like a GQ cover model. :grin Not a mark on his pretty face or totally ripped body. :no
