A Girl for Adam
4 July 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Characters involved: Ruth Halversen and Chief Chato

Main Cartwright character: Adam

Anna-Lisa (who played in Black Saddle) played the White Buffalo Woman whom the Indians thought had magical powers to heal the sick. They also thought she wasn't human. That caused her some problems when the Chief's son touched her and learned something else.

But that's only part of the story. When Adam tries to rescue her, one of the brother's shoots him with an arrow before he kills him. Now with two dead men, two dead Indians, and an injured Adam, Ruth has to save him. Of course anytime a woman tends a man who's sick, we know what happens, and this episode is no exception.

I must be honest. I don't really care for Adam, so this episode didn't do much for me. But I will say I loved the bantering at the beginning of this episode when Adam and Ben are arguing and Hoss and Joe are sitting outside listening. That's classic Bonanza, and I love it! Hoss and Joe can pull off any scene together.

There wasn't a lot of fighting in this episode - basically the Indians did what they seem to do best - kill white men - then leave.

I won't revel too much, but there is a cheesy scene between Adam and the woman, then another after Adam is discovered by his family...Oh well, they can't always get it perfect!
