We'll stay out of trouble this time
6 February 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Okay, I admit it, I really do love this episode. This is one of the "lighter" episodes, though maybe not as light-hearted as some of the other well-done episodes.

In this episode, Pa and the boys (minus Adam, who probably would have kept them all out of trouble) and even Hop Sing were in San Francisco. They act like this is the first time they've been there, but it's been referred to as a visiting spot in the past. Anyways, two of the Cartwright's best hands disappear and it seems, according to Hop Sing's Number 3 cousin, that they've been shanghaied! So Pa and the boys go out to investigate.

I won't go into detail of what happened, but it's a bust your guy episode at times, what with first Pa then Hoss getting it. My favorite part is Hoss wondering how much the woman sold his Pa for...

If you like the lighter side of Bonanza, definitely check this one out!
