  • A painful example of when outside characters head into Walton's mountain.

    1.1
    The Waltons works best as an ensemble cast interacting with each other. Unfortunately when you throw in a grieving widow without the emotional setup so that we in the audience care about the situation, we just want to run and hide. This is a sequel to a prior episode about a farcical wedding called "The Shivaree" from season 3. Now cousin Olivia must cope with that loss. The final result is basically to move on with life. Flashbacks replace character exploration and I couldn't help but find myself apathetic to the entire situation. This might have been a good idea on paper but it fails miserably when put to film.moreless

    • Opening Narration: Sometimes life goes on in peaceful cycles like the seasons, a gradual blending of time and events that we scarcely notice, and just as we think we may have learned all there is to know about life, fate conspires to show us just how little we do know. Such was the case one especially beautiful day in early fall. Our parents had told us that Olivia Hill had lost her husband in an accident and that she was coming to spend a few weeks with us.

    • Closing Narration: Our family learned a lot that fall about life, about loss, but mostly about loving, thanks to Olivia and to Calico.
