In the last scene, Laura is wearing the same dress she wore when she was 15 for her first teaching assignment, which would have been well over 5 years ago in the timeline of the series. See more »
Even though there was a court order to remove the citizens of Walnut Grove, the U.S. army could not enforce it. Minnesota was a state, which meant the Army would have illegally been used for law enforcement duties. County deputies or state police should have been sent in to enforce the court order. See more »
I would much rather see this type of movie and/or show on TV anytime than some of the weird, grotesque things that are on now. What is this world coming to with all the zombies and vampires, etc. and wacky, idiot, reality TV that we have to see now? Why can't we have nice wholesome shows like they were back then? Why shouldn't they have blown up the buildings? I think that it was only fair that the townspeople took with them what they brought. The "landowner" should not be able to get that for free, too. He was only showing how very greedy he was and how unreasonable he could be. If he had been a "real" human being, he would have tried to negotiate with the townspeople to try to be fair.
