  • Nellie is having a Halloween party but Caroline won't let Laura and Albert attend without taking a nap first ... which is where the problems begin.

    I would really like to be able to give this episode a higher score but I find that I simply can't. When Nellie throws a Halloween party, Laura and Albert are very excited about going but Caroline makes sure they take an afternoon nap before having such a late night.

    Whilst napping, Albert dreams that he and his sister are captured by a tribe of extremely fearsome Indians and, naturally, it is up to Albert to save the day. The last time an Ingalls child let their imagination run away with them, we had little Carrie dreaming up a friend, now we have Albert taking on the Indians. The premise might be very sweet and look good on paper but it didn't transfer well to the screen at all, which was unfortunate.
