Really Awful Series from a Good Film
17 April 2006 | by (Marietta, GA) – See all my reviews

The LITTLE WOMEN miniseries of 1978 was so well-received that NBC tried to make a series of it. A few of the original cast members from the miniseries (Dorothy McGuire, William Schallert, Robert Young, Ann Dusenberry) returned, but the key role of Jo was recast. Unfortunately they tried to modernize the series by adding "socially relevant," preachy scenes. The characters were made to act like no one would think of acting in the late 1800s. In one episode Laurie got sick and Jo crawled into bed with him to keep him warm or some such nonsense! Plus everyone had loved Eve Plumb as Beth, so they returned Plumb to the series as the Marches' Southern cousin Lissa who was Beth's lookalike. Urgh! Viewable only as a curiosity.
