  • A carnival troop comes and stays at the Waltons homestead. Esther and Olivia don't like the fact that a belly dancer is in their barn.

    I love Waltons. And I hate to give Waltons a bad review, but this episode was long and boring, and it made me go to sleep. The dark, retro colors will help with the sleeping part. Although the Waltons are seen in future episodes using things that the carnival troop gave them (mostly always the tent). The troop gives color to the episode though, which is why I gave them 4 points. The other 1 point is givin' to the episode for the cast's excellent acting abillities. So, if you like Waltons, like I do, then you should just skip this episode ~ Old Shows Finatic.
