  • Country music legend Mutt Taylor and Maria Bamford is on there as a Christian entrepreneur named Amy Sleeve Person and, uh, the three of them are super fans of the short lived television Western series Bonanza that, sadly not short lived it all sadly well that you know that show only had 431 episodes.

  • It was only on.

  • It was only on during the fifties sixties and seventies, its's So they Each episode they go, uh, they focus.

  • They do a deep dive on an episode of Bonanza.

  • We talk about it scene by scene.

  • We really get in depth.

  • There's a lot of these shows right now podcast where people go over real shows.

  • And this is sort of a satirical take on that, and you talk about Bonanza and it's, uh, it's a very funny show.

  • I'm curious.

  • If you've heard from actual fans of Bonanza, then you know that this exists.

  • I would have to say no, which is good.

  • No, it's hard to find a real fans of Bonanza, although there is.

  • There's ah website.

  • There's a forum called Bonanza boomers dot com, and I check in with it every once in a while, just waiting for somebody to post on there.

  • Hey, there's a podcast where each episode is devoted to an episode of the show We All love.

  • But so far they have not discovered it now.

  • Well, I'll tell you what.

  • My brother Neal is a huge fan of Bonanza.

  • Wow, and he has a encyclopedic knowledge of that show.

  • And whenever I'm with him, he makes me watch a couple of them.

  • So I know a lot more about Bonanza than you would ever imagine.

  • Oh, really?

  • Well, it is a fascinating show.

  • We've learned a few things were only 12 episodes in and a pair.

  • It constantly happens that one of the Cartwrights develops a love interest who seems like she's gonna move to the Ponderosa and be a permanent member of the cast.

  • And she always dies, always gets killed.

  • Everyone says I like her and I might want to marry her at before the episode she's killed.

  • Yeah, one of them got a pitchfork to the side and one of them, like they've been dying of diseases and fascinating.

  • And then the other thing is that about half the episodes, or maybe a third of the episodes, the story cannot accommodate all four of the regular members of the cast.

  • So the very first scene is two of the characters going well, we're off to California.

  • Good luck not getting paid this week exactly.

  • Well, people should check that out because it really is very funny.
