      Audience Member Terrible waste of Ben Johnson's acting, and insulting representation of an iconic TV series. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 02/16/23 Full Review Audience Member It was worth watching if you like Bonanza!I like Bonanza so it was okay to me.Michael Landon Jr., son of the series' "Little Joe," shows up as Joe's son Benj Cartwright; and Dirk Blocker, son of Dan "Hoss" Blocker, has a supporting role as a journalist.I knew that one dude the journalist looked,& sounded a lot like Hoss come to find out it's his son!Don't quite understand why he didn't play Hoss's son in the movie instead of the guy who did?I especially liked the part with the Surveyors getting shot at!They were there to check property line's for the Ponderosa,& let's just say i know what it feel's like to be them having Surveyed for 10 years.In the end the Ponderosa's...NOT FOR SALE!
