superb acting, but ....
28 August 2017 | by Thomas001See all my reviews

The casting was great, the acting was superb, the script was not so much. This was obviously a theme designed to invoke particular emotions, but it was so overdone and predictable, as in "I bet I know what will happen two scenes from now". That made it kinda dull to watch, the only thing missing was the funky background melody played on clarinet, french horn and tuba, which Bonanza uses for their "comedy shows."

But everybody played their role very well, notably the role of Annie Conners.

I note that Ben and Little Joe get credit too, but I don't recall seeing them on this show.
