I am familiar with all the episodes up to this stage and there is no questions that the production values, beautiful music and great acting have created a real legacy, hence the endurance of the series todate.
We are now at a stage where the writers are running short of ideas, so we have plots and scenarios from the early episodes played out here with different characters - it is not always the case, but too often this 'recycling' crops up.
The show so desparately misses Alison Arngrim at this stage.
I still adore the series and whilst I have given the other series a full 5* rating, I have docked a star for 'repitition'.
Still great nevertheless!
The good news for me is that season 8 is considerably more satisfying where the stories have predominantly a greater focus and a better sense of purpose and the drama and humour are more finely balanced like in the earlier seasons. However, having said that this doesn't necessarily mean this season is as good - it's certainly a long way from the standard set in seasons 1-4 - yet at the same time any forcasting of 'Little House On The Prairie' impending death (which wouldn't have been an unreasonable assumption after season 7) seems somewhat premature.
Arguably the most far fetched storylines are the opening two part 'The Reincarnation Of Nellie' and the last episode of the season the two part 'He Was Only Twelve'. The first story involving the adoption of Nancy by the Oleson's because they miss Nellie (after her departure) is really cringe inducing stuff. To have to pick a girl who is as close to Nellie appearance wise and also in temperament as possible is just plain stupid. The second story 'He Was Only Twelve' if anything is even worse where 'Little House.....' decides to suspend reality altogether to bring back James (the Ingalls adopted son) after he had suffered a severe gunshot wound. Michael Landon had seriously lost the plot with this story as it was really better suited to his next big project 'Highway To Heaven'.
Elsewhere though there are many examples of 'Little House......' doing what it does best - telling warmhearted stories that everyone can relate to.Read more ›
I remember watching this as a child as well, and it is one of those series that you can watch whatever age you are, as it appeals to all. While it is set in 1800's America, it somehow appears timeless, meaning it can be watched time and again without being dated.
She spends hours watching and it is always a winner when you buy something that is appreciated. She certainly does. The quality of the film is excellent.
Little House will always be welcome into our house believe me.
I have had all the Little House DVD's from Amazon. I'm halfway through series 8 and still got series 9 to look forward to.
These DVDs are a real trip down memory lane - watched them first time around on TV when I was a teenager.
The characters in Little House are well-acted and believeable. It's always sunny in Walnut Grove (apart from the terrible Christmas Snowstorm (series1 and disc3 series8.
Good things usually happen - but when the bad stuff comes then there is someone to sort it out - this is usually Charles Ingalls (the late Michael Landon) who laughs alot, plays his fiddle and has a deep, often religious/moral,insight.
Each episode is 45mins - just long enough to watch when you need a boost!
