Interesting Carnival Episode
21 April 2013 | by See all my reviews

One of the better episodes of Bonanza that I have seen.Very,original in the storyline,about carnival people.Held my interest,all the way through.Daisy the fat lady,got me wondering about her acting ability which was quite flat,and who she was,a real carnival performer or what?The Lady who went missing was adventurous,bored with her life,and wanted some excitement,which she certainly got,but not the type she bargained for.The Strongman was of interest too,did he wrestle in real life? I also noticed he died,at quite a young age.I always, love the integrity of the Cartwright boys,they have so much class,honour,and respect,not to mention,good manners.The straight forward stories are a breath of fresh air,compared to today's programming...
