A special project
2 May 2016 | by See all my reviews

After being paroled to Ben Cartwright after his invaluable help during the prison riot in the previous episode, Tim Matheson gets hired on at the Ponderosa. He becomes a special project for Lorne Greene and for David Canary who knew him back before he was in the joint.

Matheson does not adjust easy to life on the outside. Rough bunkhouse humor is not something he takes to at all. The word 'institutionalized' hadn't come into usage yet, but that's what Matheson is.

And of course a new ex-con in town is the first one suspected of a robbery taking place in Virginia City. Deputy Bing Russell comes to the Ponderosa on that case.

You know it works out for Matheson as he became a series regular in that last Bonanza season. You'll have to see how on your own though.
