Liked it a lot

10/10

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.

Since I'm such a fan of Bonanza the TV show I flipped when I saw that there was a movie based on the series.I couldn't wait to watch it.After watching it I was extremely disappointed.How could you have Dirk Blocker play only a reporter & NOT the son of Hoss Cartwright??? What is up with that?! I also didn't like Alistair MacDougall as Adam Cartwright Jr.I don't really know what it was but he just didn't fit for me.Maybe it was the Australian accent? I found the movie to be way too corny & at times boring.When I 1st started watching I was expecting to LOVE this movie but as it went on, I was just wanting to turn it off.I think the only reason I watched it till the end was because I was such a fan of the show.If you're a fan of the show than you might be disappointed by this movie as well
