While it is enjoyable to return to Walton's mountain for a visit, this entry was fairly weak.
The "love" triangle between Erin, Paul and Ashley Longworth jr. was poorly acted all around. Jonathan Frakes (who originated the role of Ashley in the series) was surely missed.
The production values are good. Its amazing that they managed to recreate all the sets and secure all the familiar locations (not to mention the cast)for this television movie special. Nevertheless the direction, script and acting did not come together.
You may not want to skip this one, but the other entries later that year were much better.
