Never has gone out of style.
25 January 2001 | by (Auburn, Me) – See all my reviews

I was a Junior in High School when this show premiered on NBC. A number of us were discussing the new shows on TV and everyone was in agreement that this one would probably not last long even though it seemed to be very well written and done. Well how wrong we all were. Even now years after it has gone off the air the episodes are still great to watch. Some shows just never go out of style. Little House on the Prairie is one of those shows.
