Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Donald Liebenson
Based on the beloved books by Laura Ingalls Wilder, Little House on the Prairie was one of those unabashed, old-fashioned family series that apathetic critics often take for granted but that earn the undying love of viewers. After leaving the Ponderosa, Michael Landon, as Charles Ingalls, found a welcome home for ten seasons on the banks of Plum Creek in Walnut Grove with his steadfast wife, Caroline (Karen Grassle), and daughters Laura (Melissa Gilbert), Mary (Melissa Sue Anderson), and Carrie (Lindsay and Sidney Greenbush). Frontier life here is idyllic, but not without hardships. Each episode in this inaugural season extols the virtues of hard work, perseverance, community, and, above all, faith. In the premiere episode, "A Harvest of Friends," the residents of Walnut Grove pitch in to help an injured Charles fulfill an obligation and keep his new home. The second episode, "Country Girls," introduces the good-hearted general store owner Mr. Oleson (Richard Bull), his shrewish wife (Scottie MacGregor), and their stuck-up daughter, Nellie (Alison Arngrim, who was recently honored with a Young Artist Lifetime Achievement Award). Other benchmark episodes include: "Mr. Edwards' Homecoming," in which Victor French, reprising his role from the Little House premiere movie (also available on DVD), joins the cast as frontiersman Isaiah Edwards; the powerful two-part episode, "The Lord Is My Shepherd," in which a guilt-stricken Laura runs away from home following the death of the infant brother she initially resented; and the heartwarming "Christmas at Plum Creek," which echoes O. Henry's story "The Gift of the Magi." Parents disheartened by the often crass programming that TV offers as family entertainment these days will welcome the return to Walnut Creek. For nostalgic viewers who grew up with the Ingallses and wish to introduce them to a new generation, this six-disc set will offer many quality family hours to come.
