      Each episode takes me back to my years growing up in the 70's. We too had a large family.
    • RIP Ralph Waite

      I just learned that yesterday afternoon that Ralph Waite passed away. You were a great father to those kids and a great actor. You'll be missed.

      I have read many derogatory reviews of "The Waltons" over the decades. However, the ones that have been written since the Internet became commonplace are the most annoying. Writing a well-researched critique is one thing. Making fun of something you don't like is something else, especially if it's not been researched at all!

      To all those who dislike "The Waltons":

      It is "Little House on the Prairie" in which the children refer to their parents Caroline and Charles as "Ma" and Pa". In "The Waltons" the children refer to their parents Olivia and John as "Mama" and "Daddy".

      I've seen this mistake made at Television Without Pity, the IMDb and TV.com a number of times.

      P.S. I do love "The Waltons" and have since its debut.moreless

      The best part of this show? "Goodnight John Boy"! At least then I knew the agony was over...
    • actors hair styles

      5.0
      I always liked watching the shows but this is supposed to be in the 1930's and each of the actors had 70's hair styles. This distracted me from the show being believable.
