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.
