  • A young pastor staying with the family is a zealous preacher, who scares the family with his fearful sermons. But how long can the Waltons withstand this strange person sent from God?

    5 seasons. That's how long they can withstand him. But who I to say that? Maybe it got unbearable somewhere in the 3rd season, but back to this AWESOME EPISODE! This has got to be one of my pesonal all time favorites in the entire Walton series! I think that the overall most funniest part is when the newcomer Reverend Fordwick goes with Zeb to an innocent sit in with the Baldwin sissies, not knowing that they're really serving him is bootleg whiskey. And then he becomes drunk of course and sadly, goes to his first sermon like that. I EXTREMELY recamend this episode! ~Old Shows Finatic
