Liked it a lot
20 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I thought the movie was very good, and actually bugged NBC about airing it again for a long time. I had it on 2 tapes, but can't find either of them now; maybe I watched them so much that the tapes became unwatchable. The story was a little odd; I think the Ponderosa was bought by someone who wanted it for the timberlands, so this old foreman and Little Joe's son (Michael Landon Jr.) found some documents left by old Ben that would invalidate the sale. I especially liked the guy who played Adam's son, A.J., and was shocked that Dirk Blocker didn't play Hoss' son. He played a reporter who was sent out to do a story on the Ponderosa.
