Are these the names of Bonanza episodes or 1980s action films?

Were "Desert Justice" and "Firewalker" on the big screen or the small?


The classic western Bonanza ran for 14 seasons from the late 1950s to the early 1970s. Over its 430 episodes, it told many action-packed stories of the Cartwright family.

The episode names almost sound like they could be movie titles. In fact, sometimes they were! Season 10, Episode 26 is called "The Running Man," sharing a name with the 1987 Arnold Schwarzenegger film.

With that in mind, here are 20 different titles. Can you tell which ones are Bonanza episodes and which are action flicks from the 1980s?

I did lousy and I’ve watched a lot of Bonanza. Action movies no.

20/20. I’m completely shocked. I did a process of elimination of the ‘80’s titles, and then decided if it was a Bonanza episode. Still, I’m in disbelief.

20/20. There were about 5 or 6 Bonanza episodes that I really liked but the only title I remember was "To Die in Darkness" with James Whitmore.

20/20. 18 & 19 had me stumped so I guessed them. They sounded like they could have been both.
