TV: B is for...

Bonanza

PONDEROSA-BASED WESTERN ranchgoings with the redoubtable LORNE “GALACTICA” GREENE as paterfamilias Ben Cartwright, MICHAEL “TEENWOLF” LANDON as gold-hoarding Little Joe, and of course DAN BLOCKER as big ol’ Hoss. Along for the (bloody endless) ride: PERNELL ROBERTS (Adam), VICTOR SEN YUNG (the Chinese cook Hop Sing) and RAY TEAL (Sheriff Roy Coffee – eh?). As with all such Americana affairs, every single episode was the same. Best bit: map burning up in opening titles. Worst bit: “Due to an unforeseen change in our schedules, we now bring you an episode of…Bonanza”.
