1 It jumped for me when Pernell Roberts left, but the all time worst episode has to be when Hoss sends away to China for fireworks and gets Marlo Thomas as a mail order bride instead. Really stupid plot and resolution at the end. Made me think it was filmed for no reason other than to complete the season's episode order because everyone phoned it in. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on September 18, 2014, 4:10 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
2 OMG! Soggy really hit the nail on the head with that one! I know right away when Little Joe sees some chick and gets that "smitten look" on his face that I best be making a beeline for the remote and find a true crime story on ID or something. This is one episode bound to leave me bitterly disappointed. I've been through a broken engagement IRL. Everything isn't cool by the following week like on TV, so I avoid those episodes of BONE-anza like the plague. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on September 11, 2012, 3:37 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
3 And then there was that recurring meme of the doomed fiancee. You'd think the ladies of the Old West would have figured out after awhile that if your beau's last name is Cartwright, you had best run for your life lest you soon find yourself as dead as a red-shirted Star Trek crewman. But no; they kept lining up to get hitched to the old man or one of the boys, and they kept dying. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 8, 2011, 7:01 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
4 Soggy, True- but at least he was still beholden enough to the "Bonanza" producers to keep his hair a somewhat realistic length for the time and setting- unlike "Little House"! AFAIC, though, the show lost its heart not to mention all its fun when Hoss died. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on April 20, 2011, 8:21 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
5 When it became The Michael Landon Show (c.1971). The guy was writing and directing episodes right and left, and of course they were all episodes that portrayed Joe in as heroic a light as possible. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on April 18, 2011, 11:10 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
6 The painted scenery - when they were outside the rocks and trees looked as if they were just painted on reall cheap sound stage. -- Submitted By: (lrbloom) on November 28, 2010, 8:34 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote

8 I loved watching this show however once Pernell Roberts left, it boned the fish for me. The show was about Ben Cartwright and his THREE sons, Adam, Hoss and Little Joe and those six seasons that Pernell was on are aptly named "The Glory Years". It was a sheer delight to see the three brothers in their weekly adventures and sometimes misadventures (i.e. The Wooing Of Abigail Jones) and the blatent attempt to replace Adam with the character of Candy was a slap in the face to the viewers even if Candy wasn't an actual brother replacement. Without Pernell there to portray Adam, the original premise of the series was gone. -- Submitted By: (gagedesoto) on October 5, 2010, 11:20 am - (4 votes) - Login to Vote
9 When Hoss died and Little Joe's hair got long and grey, it was time to leave pa's house. This show just went on too long. Candy replacing Adam was OK but when Joe was so old that they had to bring in Jamie the show was just BONED. -- Submitted By: (fletch000) on February 9, 2010, 5:17 am - (-1 votes) - Login to Vote
10 Not a bad series but sometimes it got distracting how cheap the show was. Like, no matter WHERE they went to, the campfires they built always looked EXACTLY the same- and the stagecoach had one wheel that never turned! Still, they should have just sold the ranch when Hoss bought the farm! Can't say I ever missed Adam who was even stodgier than Ben and, frankly ,always was somewhat relieved when he quietly departed in the rerun circuits. What's also funny was how neither Lorne Greene or Michael Landon had EVER done much (if any) horseback riding befo as city folk before being cast but they quickly learned how to ride like experts to keep their jobs!
