Take me, not my son!
3 February 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

What do you get when you have one head-strong and short tempered young man, a daddy who is accused of doing something wrong, and a dead mother's good name being threatened? One HECK of an episode!

I'm not sure what the best part was. Little Joe's firy temper in the newspaper office, then later in the hotel where he actually kills someone was good. The drama surrounding the gunfight was good as well. Pa's sacrificing his future for that of his baby boy's was touching. And the journey towards New Orleans was simply sweet.

Unlike many of the episodes of Bonanza and Gunsmoke, this episode ended on a positive note. Ben's almost-too-nice-for-his-own-good attitude was something that helped the turnout. I guarantee you Adam and Little Joe wouldn't have been that nice...
