some adult topics be careful...

I was looking for a wholesome show to watch with my 1st & 5th graders and a few of the episodes were great. But tonight we saw the one where John-boy got engaged to Daisy and at the end of it both my kids had questions I hadn't wanted to get into yet. Like how and why women can have kids without a husband and why Grandpa was putting alcohol in the lemonade...

Well worth watching!

With all the questionable programs out there today, I feel very comfortable letting my children watch The Waltons. Just about every episode has an important lesson on family values and social responsibility.

I love this show

This show depicts a time when everyday Americans were often truly like this. It doesn't play into some cliche hillbilly myth, but shows people living a much freer, and in many ways happier existence. Yet Neo Con white America (the audience that I would imagine to watch something like this today) will likely be uncomfortable with the Walton's closeness to nature, their laid back approach to life, their GENUINE dedication to family and community, and people who swim, not in pools mind you, but in the creek! Just weird!
