Bonanza--I got my love of this show from my dad, whose favorite was "Hoss" Dan Blocker. I'll admit I had a teen crush on Michal Landon (Little Joe), and went on to enjoy him in Little House on the Prairie. This show ran for 14 yrs. & ended a year after Dan Blockers untimely death (after a surgery).
Dan and Michael play chess behind the scenes while Lorne watches <<< so cute
