Charles Dickens in Bonanza

Since I'm on Christmas break, I actually have time to watch TV shows that I like to watch, but are always on while I'm at school. One of these shows is Bonanza, the classic Western television show. I remembered seeing this episode ("A Passion for Justice") a while ago, but I only saw the second half of it. I finally found it on YouTube in six parts and watched the whole thing. In this episode, Charles Dickens (played by Jonathan Harris, known for his role as Dr. Smith in the show Lost in Space) pays a visit to Virginia City. He finds himself in legal troubles, however, when he finds out that his books are being printed in violation of his copyright.

I don't know how accurate a portrayal this would be of Charles Dickens, but I found the episode enjoyable. I hope you enjoy it too! :-)


  1. Mmmm, I love Bonanza. Adam (or rather, the actor for Adam) died this year. Did you hear that? I haven't seen this particular episode. I'll have to see if I can locate it!

  2. I heard about the actor who played Adam. It's sad that all the Cartwrights are gone...

    The whole episode is on Youtube. Someone made a playlist for it at Youtube so you can watch the whole thing without having to click on the next part. I think this should lead to the playlist:
