This was such an emotional episode, poor Jamie just wants a family. little does he know Ben has already started enquires into adopting Jamie months before Jamie understands what he truly wants which is to become a Cartwright. I recommend watching this episode just purely for Mitch's acting delivery of some really hard scenes.

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?" :laughing

I'm not a big Jamie fan because I am an Adam girl and really enjoy the first 6 season more than the others. Not that Adam's exit was due to Jamie's entrance I just think Jamie's character presented a different kind of Bonanza. That being said though, this was a good episode and Mitch Vogel does a good job in it.

I think that ep is about to play soon on MeTV and I want to watch it. Until a couple of months ago, I ever watched past season 6, but lately I have.

I was already late teens so Jamie didn't appeal to me but I realize Jamie was added to appeal to the younger kids. I was still a Joegal, was then, still am. Some of the Jamie episodes caught on and were actually very good. This one is important since it helps show how Jamie came to stay forever with the Cartwrights and shows Ben as a father. Mitch was a good actor. Some of the later episodes were really good, especially when Michael became writer/ director/producer. :thumbup

Funny, but this one just recorded today, well yesterday and I'm watching it now. I don't like Jamie like I did Adam even though he is way closer in age that Adam was. I just like his character. I haven't finished watching the ep so I don't know what happens. Going to go watch it now and if I have more to comment, I will be back.
