Though Still Enjoyable, It's Hard to Tell One Season of "Bonanza" From the Next

1 October 2012 9:00 PM, PDT | | See recent JustPressPlay news »

Few classic shows made it to 14 seasons like Bonanza, but the ones that do leave an everlasting impression on popular culture for decades to come. It’ll come as a surprise of no one that the era of the western has long since come to an end, but in its golden age we got serials like Rawhide, Gunsmoke, and Bonanza. The latter told the story of the Cartwright family, a father and his three sons, making a living any way they can in late 1800’s Nevada, headquartered on their ranch, the Ponderosa. By the fourth season, the characters played by Lorne Greene, Michael Landon, Dan Blocker, and Pernell Roberts had been firmly established with few surprises to offer. Instead the show tells one story after another (and so on for many seasons to come) with some solid writing and acting from the regulars. It might not have any surprises or groundbreaking storytelling, »
