The best episode of Bonanza I've seen
11 November 2018 | by velo-48741See all my reviews

I'm not a fan of the later seasons of Bonanza. But this episode shocked me as to how good it was. Better than good, it was excellent. Extremely well written and superbly cast, it hooked me in the first 3 minutes. The plot has much in common with the first half of The Outlaw Josie Wales (which came along several years later).
