A wonderful start to a wonderful show
10 April 2001 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was the pilot to the wonderful TV series. The series did kind of get a little sappy and saccharine as it went along, but it was NOWHERE near as bad as Full House in that department! One of the things I really like about the show is the closeness of the Ingalls family. Melissa Gilbert, Michael Landon, Karen Grassle, Melissa Sue Anderson, and Lindsay and Sidney Greenbush all looked so comfortable and at ease with each other. If you didn't know better, you'd swear they really were a family. This TV movie kicked off a great series that lasted almost a decade and introduced us to many actors who became very familiar and very beloved to viewers. Long live Little House!
