I had heard rumours of this - that the original manuscript was far from the idyllic version presented in the published version of her books.  I'm glad to see her original work finally being published.

When I was a youngen  I had a crush on Mary.  The real Mary is kind of ugly.

Is this the version where Nellie Oleson pimps out Mary to ugly guys because she's blind and it doesn't matter what they look like?

They could just use the actress who played Nellie real life, she was molested terribly as a child.

I hated this stupid show. I could never understand why there were kids in my school who liked this show when there were so many other top quality programs like CHiPs and Knight Rider.  How can you compete with a talking car?

remind us to bring this up later because there are a couple things wrong with what you just posted.


Nothing would be grittier than a cameo visit from Michael Landon.  I wouldn't watch, though.

So it's gonna be "The Road" crossed with "Tombstone", shot all in sepia tones, and Half-Pint will have a gruff, growly voice?

Ooh, can't wait.

The not-safe-for-children tales include stark scenes of domestic abuse, love triangles gone awry and a man who lit himself on fire while drunk off whiskey.

This sounds very much like what happened with Anne Frank's diary. The original version was NSFW in a direct, matter-of-fact manner and the first version published was heavily edited.
 
2014-08-18 12:05:33 PM
(Not that her diary was particularly idyllic. The comparison kind of breaks down there, but the rest stands.)

I like Little House a lot more as I got older.  I mean, nothing's going to compete with a talking car when I was a kid, except a talking car that also transformed into a giant robot.  That said, I think Little House holds up remarkably well.  The production doesn't look cheap, and fits the rustic feel of the story well.  Also, there is a remarkable amount of serialization for a show of that time, let alone a children's show.

That headline made me think of Michael Landon with torn jeans and tattoos.  I'll be in my gay bunk...

It's remarkable that she had a diary at all, being blind and deaf like that.


There, now the dumb jokes are out of the way.

Well, radiation poisoning will do that to you.

So.....even grimmer than the time that Albert's girlfriend being raped, impregnated and the later murdered by a guy in a clown mask? Or the time he accidentally started a fire that killed his stepsister's baby and his best friend's mother? Or the time he successfully kicked a morphine habit just in time to get a terminal disease and die?

Yeah, the first couple of seasons may have been family friendly. After that, they could have just renamed it " Life Sucks And The You Die, Albert"

I recall reading about someone asking her why she didn't include more of what really happened in the books, and her saying that if she had, they wouldn't be children's books. Little Starvation on the Prairie? There's pretty grim stuff as is. Reading between the lines, it's pretty clear that at a certain point they were starving.

It doesn't get a whole lot grittier than blowing up your own hometown out of spite.

Too bad there wasnt an abundant supply of large indigenous mammals on the prairie that they could kill and eat and skin.

You don't even have to read between the lines. A plague of grasshoppers came at one point and ate everything they could find. During the hard winter in De Smet, they were reduced to begging for seed wheat from the Wilder brothers. The Wilder books weren't whitewashed at all.
