Little House On The Prairie: Season Six (1979 - 1980/NBC/Lionsgate Blu-ray)

Picture: B Sound: B Extras: C Episodes: A-

Little House on the Prairie (more like Little Town on the Prairie) continues its Blu-ray rollout with this upgraded Season Six Blu-ray set. It is a season of changes for the Ingalls, as little Laura Ingalls rapidly approaches womanhood she meets and falls in love with Almanzo Wilder. But will she be ready for everything? As she she becomes a teacher, she must learn and faces various challenges of being an adult, but with the love and support of the townsfolk of Walnut Grove she will surely become a new woman.

The Ingalls are the picture perfect ideal American family on the frontier, it would not be far fetched to say their family are one of the pillars of the community of Walnut Grove. Along with all the excitement and adventure, there is also danger on the frontier, but there is a bigger danger for Charles/Pa Ingalls now, his little Laura is growing up and starting to notices boys and boy are starting to notice her too. And while Ingalls girls are the town's little angels, Laura can be quite the little temptress/devil when other girls come between her and her man. But one does (and should) question Laura's choice in a man who is 1) twice her age, 2) beats up her student after thinking him getting too close to Laura and 3) only sees her as a woman after she legally turns 16.

Based on the popular children's book written Laura Ingalls Wilder as always noted when we cover these sets, it is the story of the Ingalls who lived on the American Frontier, the challenges and changes of nature and the families and children who grew up there. It is filled with wonders and yearning of a child and their dreams, hopes and fears.

The 1080p 1.33 X 1 digital High Definition image and lossless DTS-HD MA (Master Audio) Mono mixes show their age and are a little rougher than earlier seasons on Blu-ray, but look as good as we expect they ever will. Extras include the 'Little House' Phenomenon - A Lasting Legacy.
