"They snub you on Sunday and come to your place on Monday,' Little Joe, annoyed by the hypocritical attitude of the townsfolk.
The following episode, The Saga of Annie O'Toole is much more entertaining and features the Cartwright's involved in settling land disputes between miners. Into the mix comes Annie O'Tool who claims she has inherited a good section of land from her recently deceased father. Initially and with Adam Cartwright's help she sets up a cafe to feed the miners with her speciality Mulligan stew going down a treat. However unscrupulous Gregory Spain claims to be the real owner of Annie's land and a battle takes place with Ben Cartwright in the middle to adjudicate.
Bonanza had by now found its feet and the rest of the first season was made up of a run of episodes that rate amongst the best western television ever made - next we will look at episodes 11 - 15 and the appearance of a young James Coburn.`
