My wife's grandma lives with us now. She is 92. Besides doing word searches and jigsaw puzzles, she loves to watch Bonanza and Gun Smoke on TVLand. I am too young to have watched them when they came out, but since she has moved in, I have been watching.
Actually, they kick ass! I don't know if any of you remember watching them back in the day, but if you did, do you still try to catch an episode? It's amazing to see all the actors who later became popular, that were on those shows. Gun Smoke usually ends with my wife and me wondering who that guest star was.
So far I've been able to name Gary Busey, Anne Margret, the dude who played Ernest T. Bass, Ned Beatty and Ted Knight. Did Clint or the Duke ever play in these two shows? And who else should I look for?
