"I'm a fan of Bonanza and I like horses, cowboys, cattle, etc.This is a great TV show but, a little bad transfer on this DVD and this DVD is not terrible except, they removed the original theme music and the video is washed out. I don't care about it.There are four episodes on one disc:1. Day of Reckoning
2. The Avenger
3. The Ape
4. Breed of ViolenceMy favorite episode on Volume 5 is "Breed of Violence."In this episode "Day of Reckoning":After Matsou the Indian (Ricardo Montalban) save's Ben's life, Ben gives him a parcel of Ponderosa land. Mastou cuts his hair aand learns to farm. But Matsou's former tribe kills the wife of Ike Daggett (Karl Swenson), Ben's neighbor who hated Indians. Ike Daggett kills Matsou's pregnant wife as revenge, which drives Matsou to torture Ben, who he bames for tansforming him.Guest Star: Ricardo MontalbanWritten by: R. Hamer Norris, Leonard HeidemanDirected by: Richard BartlettIn this episode The Avenger:After Ben and Adam are convicted of murder, a young man named Lassiter (Vic Morrow) takes up their cause. Lassiter's parents were lynch victims and he is dermined not to let that happen to others.Guest Stars: Vic Morrow, Jean AllisonWritten by: Clair HuffakerDirected by: Christian NybyIn this episode The Ape:Hoss becomes friends with Arnie Gurnthie (Cal Bolder), a huge retarted man. Arnie loves Shari (Karen Sharpe) the saloon girl, but when she spurns him he accidentally kills her.Guest Stars: Leonard Nimoy, Cal BolderWritten by: Gene L. CoonDirected by: James P. YarbroughIn this episode Breed of Violence:Sheriff Kincaid (Val Avery) is strict with his daughter, Joe's friend Dolly (Myrna Fahey). To escape his tryanny she leaves town with Vince Dagen (John Ericson), unaware that he has robbed a bank.
She learns the truth when he and his companions kill a guide while trying to kidnap the Cartwrights.Guest Stars: John Ericson, Myrna Fahey, Val AveryWritten by: David LangDirected by: Johnny Florea"Breed of Violence" is a very good episode and David Lang is one of the best screenwriters and wrote other two Bonanza episoses. I think David Lang could probably eat white rice with ketchup and toasted bread and butter and we'd call David Lang "The David Lang Bread and Rice Guy" and make of the meals called "DAVID LANG'S SPANISH BREAD ROLL TOAST,WHITE RICE AND CORN ON THE COB" and that'd be the best meal ever to have for lunch or dinner and you should have it sometime if you go to New England. Delicious!I hope you all love Bonanza!I loved, liked, enjoyed and I loved it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
