drugs!!!! not good for you
15 January 2015 | by (South Africa) – See all my reviews

This is another one of little house on the prairie's outstanding episodes and Micheal Landon did a great jod AGAIN as director and actor in this episode. This is the first time we see Charles and Albert since their departure in the last episode on season 8. In this heart gripping first part of a 2 part episode we see how Albert is addicted to drugs Morphine and you can just see from the get go how drugs affect your personality and its not for the better. But I loved this episode even though its dark it's very important to watch because it takes on a subject that is really worth watching and learning about. Stay tuned to the 2nd part where you will see what happens when Albert stops and the withdrawal symptoms kicks in
