Love is strange
10 June 2016 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Although Stu Erwin's Irish brogue is not terribly convincing, the whole Bonanza episode leans most successfully on the humorous side as three women show up at the Ponderosa claiming to be mail order brides for Hoss Cartwright. Not like the Cartwright boys ever had any trouble getting women even Hoss.

Of course it's not Dan Blocker looking for a bride, it's Stu Erwin who wants a bride and a mother for his little daughter Sharyl Locke. He just signs his advertisement Hoss Cartwright.

Answering the ad is Majel Barrett taking time from Star Trek to play a gal from Kentucky who comes to the Ponderosa with her hillbilly brothers Claude Hall and Wynn Pearce. Also answering the ads are Mitzi Hoag from Boston and Danielle Aubry from Cajun New Orleans. This episode was awash with accents.

And believe it or not it all works out and I think you can figure it out. The course of true love is strange indeed at times.
