Editorial Reviews

One of the longest running and most popular of all television programs, BONANZA has become a part of American mythology. For fourteen seasons, audiences enthusiastically tuned in to see the High-Sierra adventures of the Cartwright clan. Nestled amongst the pines above the shores of Lake Tahoe is the Ponderosa, the thousand-square mile home of Ben Cartwright and his sons, Adam, Hoss and Little Joe. Guest players were a veritable Who's Who of classic Hollywood and upcoming superstars, and timeless stories continue to appeal to contemporary audiences of all ages.

I bought this for my father for his 89th birthday. When I was a child, the whole family would gather around the TV to watch Bonanza together. My father is enjoying the collection.

Reasonably priced and money we'll spent! The picture content in color to boot is professionally phenomenal! How relaxing it is to sit down and watch "Bonanza" take on the Wild West in their original episodes on DVD!

In my opinion Bonanza is the greatest of all the T.V. westerns that ever graced the small screen. It was the first ranch type western, it was also one of the first shows in color, it had some fantastic scenery. This DVD set of the first season is very good. Worth owning.

Who hasn't ever watched Bonanza? I think it's one of the most popular show and expanded over about two generations. Of course, Little Joe is my favorite, followed by Hoss. I don't care much for Adam (to bossy and proper). Joe and Hoss bring a lot of life to the show. There aren't many funny episodes in this set, but there are some good serious ones. My favorite episodes:

The Newcomers
The Philip Diedesheimer Story
The Truckee Strip
The Hanging Posse

This is the first half of the first season of Bonanza, one of my favorite early TV shows. I adored my Dad, and his favorite types of film and TV show were westerns, so of course they were mine also. We watched Black Saddle, Two Faces West, Cheyenne, Sugar Foot, The Rebel, Have Gun Will Travel, The Big Valley, Wanted Dead or Alive, Lawman, Rifleman, etc. Recognize some of those? If you're over 50, you probably do.

I have to admit though, that as a girl, not all westerns were quite a "good fit" for me. A fairly gritty series, like Gunsmoke for instance, tended not to hold my attention a great deal. The in-your-face realism was a little too intense for me, especially at twelve and up. Though I can remember many of the cast members very clearly and even remember most of the actor's names to look them up on Wikipedia, I couldn't recite even a single plot to you. I'd bet most of the guys could though. Gunsmoke is what I would now call a little "too testosterone overloaded." The ingredients in it appeal primarily to the male of our species; not because there is anything particularly sexual about it, but because it involves the challenge and rawness of actual western life--it's sort of camping out without even camping equipment, something most sensible women would never do!

Bonanza on the other hand, and though with a splendid balance, has a lot more estrogen on board. I doubt I recognized it at the time, but as an adult viewing the DVD it becomes ever so obvious.
