Best Television show and movie for all ages
6 November 2001 | by (Hell) – See all my reviews

Little house on The Prairie and the movies are all excellent movies for all ages to enjoy. I can never get enough of that show and watch it back to back in the morning on TBS. I would love to go back to their days and see what they had to go through compared to the way things are done today. It's to bad they didn't give the part of Carrie a bigger part. She was such a cute little girl. It's a shame that Michael L. and Victor French passed away. It would be great if there was a reunion and had the orginal cast members come back including, Carrie, Nelly, Willie, and everybody else who helped make LHOTP the big success it has and always will be.
