Harriet Oleson: Now, I would say that's interesting. Wouldn't you say?
Melinda Foster: Interesting?
Harriet Oleson: Mm hm.
Melinda Foster: I would say that's probably the worst exhibition of bad taste I'll ever see! Oh! How could anyone pick that dreadful color?
Harriet Oleson: I agree with you completely, of course. But after all, they're just children. Well, I was trying to be kind. You know, they really come from a family that doesn't have very much culture.

Here we go again...
10 August 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The episode in which Mary goes blind is a heart-wrenching, sad episode. It was done so well. It's one of my favorites. I'm sure the episode got high-ratings, but I'm not sure why they decided to travel down that same road again...Even when I was a little girl and watched this episode, I wondered why they had to travel down this road. Were they so pleased with the previous episode that they just had to try again?

I will admit, though, that there are some good points in this episode. Adam's fear of Mary getting her sight back (when indeed, it did happen to Adam later on) give you a glimpse into the person he really is. Mary's admitting that she wanted her sight back for herself was also another good point to this episode. But the whole crying - tell me it's not true - bad news scenes...well...I just didn't feel the hurt for them. They've been down this road and accepted it. Let's just leave it alone!
