very nice episode
30 December 2017 | by See all my reviews

Unlike the many Bonanza shows which tease with race issues, mental illnesses, gender, age, and yatti yatta, this one deals with the influeza, and it did it very well. It is a safe subject, after all, who could possibly take the opposing side? Well, they found a contention anyway, the method to cure it. It was a great show to watch, except the acting of Dr. George Woodtree, which bombed. Fortunately, it was very brief.
