It all began when actress Vicki mused: "Kendra's funny isn't she?"
Vicki added: "She does some things and goes and gets a ten, and then practically the same things that she's..." before trailing off.
Michael agreed with Vicki's uncertainty as he replied: "Yeah, but it's all that contrivance isn't it? I think she's doing a reality TV gig. When she thinks it's appropriate she'll... like her go at Edwina was all for the cameras."
But she was only able to collect the one during the dismal Grim gallery challenge before that.

In 1974, TV audiences were introduced to the Ingalls family, a frontier clan living in a rustic cabin in the Minnesota wilderness during the 1870s and '80s. America was in the middle of its Me Decade, with an exhausting war and general upheaval at home. The weekly dramas of a farmer and his children—based on the Little House on the Prairie books by Laura Ingalls Wilder—were an irresistible look at a simpler time when people based their lives around family, home, and church. (All nine seasons are available on Digital HD on Amazon; seasons 1–3 are also available on Blu-ray and DVD from Lionsgate. »

It's nearly impossible to talk about Little House on the Prairie without talking about the show's director/executive producer/star, Michael Landon, who succumbed to pancreatic cancer in 1991. When EW reunited many members of Walnut Grove—Ingalls kids Laura (Melissa Gilbert), Mary (Melissa Anderson), Carrie (Lindsay Greenbush, who split the role with her twin sister, Sidney), and Albert (Matthew Laborteaux), along with town bully Nellie Oleson (Alison Arngrim), Laura's husband, Almanzo Wilder (Dean Butler), kindly schoolteacher Miss Beadle (Charlotte Stewart) and Ingalls matriarch Caroline (Karen Grassle)—memories of Landon were everywhere.

Who you gonna call?If your brain doesn't automatically shout "Ghostbusters" after hearing those four words, there's something wrong with you -- because, 30 years later, the film is still one of the most memorable movies ever made.First released in June of 1984, the flick spawned a sequel, cartoon, video games, toys and never-ending speculation over when we'll finally get "Part III."Well, we still don't have an answer for that last one, as Bill Murray, Sigourney Weaver, Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson and Annie Potts all addressed the elephant in the room when they recently got together again for Entertainment Weekly's Reunions Issue. "I say the money's not right yet," joked Murray after Al Roker asked about doing another one. "It's really hard to — to recreate something that was so beautiful, so wonderful. I hear there's gonna be one with all women, Ghostbabes, something like that."It's true, director Paul Feig is making an all-female version, »

Chicago – Melissa Gilbert has grown up a bit since portraying Laura Ingalls on the 1970s TV classic “Little House on the Prairie,” but her roots aren’t far behind. She’s just released “My Prairie Cookbook: Memories and Frontier Food from My Little House to Yours,” and appeared last month at North Central College in Naperville, Ill. – at an event sponsored by Anderson’s Bookshop – to greet admirers and sign her new menu planner.

From 1974 to 1983, Gilbert starred as Laura Ingalls as a child – Ingalls eventually grew up and wrote the “Little House on the Prairie” series of books – and the NBC-tv show also famously featured Michael Landon, Melissa Sue Anderson, Alison Arngrim and Merlin Olsen. Landon also executive produced the show, and was so convinced that Gilbert was the »

Sean Durkin, the director of Elizabeth Olsen's "Martha Marcy May Marlene," is in negotiations with Sony Pictures to direct a big screen adaptation of the "Little House on the Prairie" TV series. The show, which aired on NBC from 1974 to 1983 and starred Michael Landon, focused on a pioneer family living in the 1880s in the American Midwest. It was known for is wholesome values and was loosely based on a series of children's books by Laura Ingalls Wilder, who based it on her childhood. The project was originally set up for David Gordon Green (Pineapple Express), who ended up dropping out. Abi Morgan (The Iron Lady, Shame) wrote the script. »

I was certainly taken aback by Sean Durkin's debut feature Martha Marcy May Marlene back in 2011. Most notably, it put Elizabeth Olsen on the map after delivering a wonderfully complex and honest performance, which is something she unfortunately has not been given the chance to repeat. After I saw that film, I was eager to see what Durkin was going to do next as a director. For a little while, it looked like a Janis Joplin film, starring Nina Arianda, was going to be his next project, but now it seems it will be a big screen adaptation of the hit television series "Little House on the Prairie". Based off of Martha Marcy, Durkin seems like an odd choice. I do not pretend to be a "Little House" expert (and, quite frankly, if you are pretending to be a "Little House" expert, you need to figure out your life »

Once a rather surprising project on David Gordon Green's plate, the film adaptation of famed TV show "Little House On The Prairie" is now in the hands of an equally surprising name. Sean Durkin ("Martha Marcy May Marlene," the TV mini-series "Southcliffe" which is worth catching up with), is now the man behind camera for this movie, which has its origins in the children's book series by Laura Ingalls Wilder about a family living in the American Midwest in the 1880s. Abi Morgan ("Shame," "Brick Lane") penned the script, and Scott Rudin will produce. [THR] The ever-busy Spike Lee is back behind the camera, stepping once again into the documentary world. He's making a movie about Little League phenom Mo'ne Davis and "the Taney Dragons and their journey to the Little League World Series." [Wooder Ice] Stephen Chbosky, of "The Perks of Being a Wallflower" fame, is shifting gears a bit, going the family. »

Seventies TV shows seem to be rife for adaptation in our modern age of cinematic product, but they don't always guarantee the nostalgic drive they seek to inspire. For every Charlie's Angels there's a Starsky And Hutch waiting to piss everyone off. Yet somehow, a movie reboot of Little House On The Prairie isn't the worst idea that could be floated past our very eyes. According to a scoop from The Hollywood Reporter, director Sean Durkin, the man who brought Martha Marcy May Marlene to the screen back in 2011, is negotiating to head up the project based on a script by The Iron Lady scribe Abi Morgan. Scott Rudin is producing, and the film is being set up with Sony as the studio backing it. The original Little House On The Prairie series ran from 1974 to 1983. It adapted the autobiographical works of Laura Ingalls Wilder, as she recalled her childhood »
Two years ago, we learned David Gordon Green was in talks to direct a Little House on the Prairie movie. Green seemed like an odd choice for the children's book adaptation, and he has since moved on. But producer Scott Rudin (Captain Phillips) is not taking the project in a new direction. THR reports that Sean Durkin is in talks to direct. Durkin's lone feature credit is the intense drama Martha Marcy May Marlene, which is mcuh closer to Green's early work than the 1970s Little House TV series. I still expect the movie to be a family friendly affair, but the team of Rudin and Durkin---not to mention screenwriter Abi Morgan (Shame)---indicates Little House will have higher ambitions than the average kids movie. Hit the jump for the synopsis of the Laura Ingalls Wilder book. The adventures continue for Laura Ingalls and her family as they leave their »

Sean Durkin, the filmmaker behind Martha Marcy May Marlene, is now tackling a different sort of family drama and is in negotiations to direct Sony's adaptation of Little House on the Prairie. Prairie is best known as the iconic TV series that aired on NBC from 1974 to 1983 and starred Michael Landon as the patriarch of a pioneer family living in the 1880s in the American Midwest.

First announced a couple of years ago, development on a film version of literary and TV perennial The Little House On The Prairie hasn't moved quickly. But gingham may be about to come back in style after all. The peculiar news this morning is that Sean Durkin, director of the indie psychological thriller Martha Marcy May Marlene and producer of Simon Killer, is in talks to open the doors.Most of us encountered the TV adaptation of Laura Ingalls Wilder’s semi-autobiographical children’s classic book series on Channel 4 Sunday mornings, as it chronicled the gentle adventures of Ingalls family on the 19th century American frontier. We were introduced to Charles and Caroline Ingalls and their three daughters, Mary, Laura and Carrie.The word you're looking for is "wholesome", but there's something interesting afoot with the new movie that nobody's quite telling us yet.

Ah, family. It’s the cement of civilization, the source of many people’s most reliable love, and the folks who have to take you in when no one else will.
And if families weren’t so serioulsy screwed up, Jason Bateman might not have a career.
The actor, who got his start as a child on such family-oriented series as "Little House on the Prairie," "Silver Spoons" and "Valerie," owes much of his adult success to playing Michael Bluth on the hit TV series "Arrested Development." Bluth was one of the “sane, conservative, everyman, straight men that I always play,” says the 45-year-old actor. Often those straight men of his exist within a family of lunatics.
Since "Arrested Development," Bateman has played similar roles in films as diverse as Hancock, Juno, Couples Retreat, The Change-Up, The Switch and even the slapsticky Identity Thief, all of which placed him in some family-related, »
