My favorite show
2 November 2000 | by Jenn-69See all my reviews

I'm nearly 40 years old, I love Little House on the Prairie. I didn't watch too much of it 20 years ago, but totally enjoy watching 2 hours every week-day morning. I actually set my clock to wake up during the summer months, so I don't miss any shows, even though I've seen them all several times. It is a clean show. I say by far, this is my favorite show on tv.

I would love to see a 2000 reunion with all the surviving cast members. I think the Oleson's are pretty cool people. I love the on-going "fussing" with the Ingall's & the Oleson's. I truly hope they don't take this show off the air.
