Another Landon mess
15 January 2018 | by Thomas001See all my reviews

Aside from the futile attempt at comedy, there is a pattern about the worst Bonanza shows - they all are written by Michael Landon and directed by Michael Landon. Little Michael did ok as Little Joe, as long as he was told what to say and what to do, much as most of Hollywood should do. In this show he takes credit for writing AND directing Ben Cartwright to be a gumshoe, sheriff's assistant, to find a kidnapped kid. Spooky sounds and bizarre stares wrapped it up for me. I give it 2 stars only because the little kid was really cute.
