Mr. Coffee Nerves: I don't remember ever watching a single episode of this show -- it doesn't seem like the premise and setting allowed for much in the way of compelling drama.At least "Little House on the Prairie" had the common courtesy to show a good farm-implement mangling from time to time and they blinded a cast member every time the show fell below "Hart to Hart" in the Neilsens.Yes, I said "cast member," not "character." Landon was stone cold.
HotIgneous Intruder: John Boy lost his gig shilling Cadilacs to John Hamm.Hee-Haw./Erin is stil the hottest girl of the Waltons.
someonelse: It circled back and re-jumped the shark when they had new-actor-Johnboy-in-a-coma. Then they slammed the water skis in reverse and jumped it again when Mary Ellen's husband didn't really die at Pearl Harbor.
Bslim: The long non-awaited reunion that no one has been clamoring for.
CarnySaur: That show jumped the shark after Will Geer died.

someonelse: I vaguely recall an out-of-left-field episode involving Elizabeth and a poltergeist that rivaled LHotP's mime rape episode in weirdness.
JusticeandIndependence: ...and the comments from EW turn into a fight over God and Government handouts.The Waltons, a farking TV Show from 1972, is somehow a guide on how to live for some people. Amazing.
Delawheredad: God I HATED that show. A house full of kids and NOT once did the brothers engage in a fist fight or rough house to the point of breaking things and the girls NEVER stabbed each other in the back. "Fantasy Island" was more realistic.
whatshisname: Sunday night on CBC right after Disney. The ads were from Kraft and taught you how to throw 14 random Kraft products together to get delicious cheesy peanut butter Miracle Whip snacks.

A house full of kids and NOT once did the brothers engage in a fist fight or rough house to the point of breaking things and the girls NEVER stabbed each other in the back. "Fantasy Island" was more realistic.Actually, all that did happen.The show crapped out after John-Boy left. I have to agree with the Olivia 70s agsty comment. Apparently, the actress complained all she did was pour coffee. Well, that's what women did in the 30s, if you were poor and lived on a farm.
