As a little girl, one of my favorite shows on television was Little House on the Prairie. It happens to be on again in syndication on the INSP channel. The channel also shows reruns of The Waltons, Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman and inspirational movies. There is such an innocence in these shows. So many good morals. Dave and I are addicted to Little House. Even though we have seen every episode, we still watch them again and again. As I write this, “The Camp Out” one of the earlier episodes is on.
Over the summer I was watching a marathon of Orange is the New Black – quite possibly the complete opposite of wholesome and innocent. Now I am stuck on a Little House marathon.
My kids won’t watch it – not even when they were younger. I can’t even think of a children’s show that’s on the air today that could compare to it. That’s just too bad.
Did you watch Little House? Did you read the books? I always loved Mary Ingalls. Dave’s favorite was Mr. Olsen. Who was yours?
