  • Great episode

    This is a very good episode. I like it because it shows the boys reaction when they find out Ben is kidnapped. Joe and Hoss want to immediately go find Ben and shoot it out, but though Adam wants to find Ben, he wants to trick the bad guys. I think that also shows where Adam's education comes in, as compared to Hoss and Joe. This is a typical episode of Bonanza, similarities from different episodes, but it still has a very good plot. I definitely think this is one of the best episodes of Bonanza because of the character development and the plot.moreless
