Overview

Set in Jefferson County, VA, in the year 1935 or thereabouts, season three of The Waltons opens with the two-parter "The Conflict," in which oldest Walton son, John-Boy Richard Thomas, is shot while trying to protect a relative. Fortunately he survives the ordeal and is packed off to his freshman year at Boatwright College right on schedule. Meanwhile, John-Boy's mother, Olivia Michael Learned, considers enrolling in art school, and his 15-year-old sister Mary Ellen Judy Norton Taylor makes the decision to become a nurse. Of the many individual story strands, there are a few standouts, notably the episode in which Grandpa and Grandma Walton Will Geer and Ellen Corby move off the family mountain after an argument with son John Ralph Waite; and at season's end, John is working himself into pneumonia while trying to keep his lumber mill active and prosperous in the depths of the depression. Also, the Waltons draw even closer together than unusual when Grandpa suffers a heart attack; and Ronnie Claire Edwards becomes a regular in the role of Corabeth Godsey, the alcoholic wife of storekeeper Ike Godsey Joe Conley.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Donald Liebenson
You can take John-Boy Richard Thomas out of Walton's Mountain, but you can't take Walton's Mountain out of John-Boy. Still "spinning dreams of the long, long ago" in the words of Earl Hamner Jr., who created and narrates this autobiographical Depression-era series, The Waltons Season 3 finds the eldest son of the sprawling brood taking his first "faltering" steps from home. Now attending Boatwright University, he is discovering "how little I knew about some things and how well my parents prepared me for others." Lesson 1 is "a sense of pride and accomplishment," which serves him well in "The First Day," as he suffers a series of mishaps with a towed car and missing application forms, indignities at the hands of taunting upperclassmen, and disastrous run-ins with an imperious professor. Later in the year, John-Boy gets a rebuke and a pep talk from his mother, Olivia Michael Learned, for thinking that he's not good enough to date a girl from a wealthy family in "The Thoroughbred"; and he gets a chance to stand up for a classmate accused of cheating in "The System." Also this season: John Ralph Waite and Olivia renew their wedding vows in "The Woman," which features John Ritter in his recurring role as Rev. Matthew Fordwick; the family marks Grandpa's 73rd birthday, a milestone that's marred when he suffers a mild coronary that seems to drain his feisty spirit. Will Geer, who portrays Grandpa, earned an Emmy for this season, as did Ellen Corby, who portrays his devoted wife. The close-knit Waltons, one of the most functional families in television history, prevail over other crises, including the uprooting of kinfolk in the powerful two-part season-opener, "The Conflict," and inspire others to appreciate their own lives an embittered blind woman in "The Job," for instance. The season finale, "The Venture," crystallizes what made The Waltons one of television's very best family hours, as neighbors rally to help complete John's new mill after he is hospitalized, and Walton and Sons is born.

    solid family entertainment

    Watch the series starting with Season One. The stories are about everyday situations, with realistic characters, but each episode is watchable, and can be sued to teach about everything from courtesy and manners to integrity and morals.
    The Waltons are a too good to be true, in some ways BUT if you value true family and history, you will not be disappointed.

    Better Family Times

    I grew up with the Walton family, and I loved the real life situation stories written by John-boy Walton about the life and times of the 11 members of the Walton family. It is a wholesome true to life series that is truly inspirational and a really nice break from all of the smut and squallor on today's TV sets.

    The Job

    The Walton's tv series proved to be good family drama about a family in rural West Virginia during the 1930s and 1940s. It showed how they dealt with the issues of the depression, war, physical handicaps, and just plain growing up.
