Bunch of bull
14 January 2014 | by See all my reviews

I do not like this episode. It's just so boring! There are some funny parts in it (my favorite is when Joe and Hoss are discussing their trip in front of Adam), but for the most part it's pretty boring. There are other "bull" stories that are a lot better...

In this episode, Hoss and Little Joe go to Mexico to buy a seed bull for $10,000.00. I cannot even imagine buying any kind of animal for that price! WOW!!! Back then that was like...what? a million dollars or something in today's standards? Anyways, the entire episode is about the boys getting this bull back home.

One of my least favorite episode so far.
