This was fun!
2 February 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Some episodes of Bonanza can get a little stuffy even a little pompous. That can't be said about this episode. This was funny. And it wasn't just the writing. This was well acted and the music and sound effects added a lot. In this episode Hoss tries to hide from his brothers that a beautiful Mexican lady is coming to he Ponderosa. He feels he can win her by fighting a bull to impress her. Hoss and Little Joe's attempts at mastering bull fighting can only be called hilarious. Once the lady arrives though Adam's polished approach appears to be what works with her. Only after some near disastrous attempts at really fighting a bull does this story sort itself out One thing for sure, it's going to cost someone a lot of money.
