When Will and Laura are beside the lake, they refer to their kiss "last night". Yet Adam was gone "last night" and returned in the day. Based on his comments the day he returned is the Saturday after the engagement party. So the correct comment should have been "last week". See more »

Cold Case: PONDEROSA
5 July 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

WE DO NOT like to give reviews for any film, TV show or TV episode that will have overwhelmingly negatives as its basis. Here, we must make an exception; as we believe that it is necessary to express our disappointment with a series installment, even if it is a now 50 year old BONANZA hour.

WE RECENTLY VIEWED this episode on an afternoon oldies channel, that being MEE-TV. We don't remember it from our old, youthful viewing days; so it was as if we were watching a new production.

FROM THE VERY beginning we could see what was coming. They weren't telegraphing plot twists, they ere delivering it with all of the speed and accuracy of the then future invention of the Internet. We do mean everything. Right from the title and opening scenes, one could see it all coming.

THE CAST FEATURED the usual players. Lorne Greene, Dan Blocker, Michael Landon and Pernell Roberts were joined by Guy Williams (cousin Will Cartwright)and Kathie Browne as young widow, Laura Dalton. She has mixed feelings about just who is in love with and predictably it is her and Will who wind up together. (She is introduced as Adam's fiancée in the story's start).

IF IT PLEASES the court, may we please offer an explanation as just how and why this whole story came to be? Thank you! FROM VERY EARLY in the BONANZA Series' history, Pernell Roberts publicly knocked the production. He obviously felt that he was deserving of greater artistic endeavor*. Bringing in Guy Williams character could well have been an answer to this. Hois Will Cartwright could have filled a hole in the series and Adam could have been written out (which eventually did happen).

BUT, AT LEAST for then, Adam remained and Guy Williams got the girl and left the Ponderosa forever.

OR SHALL WE say; he left, at least until syndication time.
