Trivia

While a number of minor (or perceived) inconsistencies exist between Ponderosa (2001) and Bonanza (1959), a few glaring retroactive consistencies are present. Most notable among these is the fate of Little Joe's mother, Marie. In the original series, Marie's death was depicted in the episode "Marie, My Love" as a result of falling off a horse in front of the Ponderosa ranch house. Meanwhile in the new series, Marie is killed in Virginia City by a miner who is trying to murder Ben Cartwright. Making the situation even more confusing, the pilot for the original series identifies Little Joe's mother as "Felicia" and not Marie. See more »

The Ponderosa
21 November 2002 | by See all my reviews

This is the kind of show that needs to be on television. It is a good show that shows real family values and morals that is so lacking in television today. This show attracted the young and old alike. Hopefully the "Cartwrights" and The Ponderosa will continue to enhance our television viewing. LONG LIVE THE PONDEROSA!!!!
