Throughtout the show, many women, Harriet Oleson, with the mercantile, Nellie Oleson and Caroline Ingalls with the restaurant, they supposedly owned these properties. Many married women were seen signing legal documents. These things would have been impossible, because in the 1800s, married women did not have any legal rights, once they were married. See more »

I don't know what it is about this show, but it is one of my all time favorites. I am now in my early 40's and still watch it every time it airs. I own every DVD and even recorded every show long before DVDs were available. Michael Landon had a gift about the shows he wrote and directed. The best episode, in my opinion, is "The Lord is My Shepherd." The story lines and family atmosphere of these episodes says a lot. I can remember growing up watching these shows every Monday night - brings back fond memories of sharing those times with my family, particularly my grandmother, who adored Michael Landon as much as I did. I wish TV of today had the family values like it had many years ago. Shows such as "Little House" will forever remain a piece of history. Thank God Michael Landon left us such wonderful TV memories! :-)
