Little House On The Prairie: Season 8 (1981 - 1982/Lionsgate DVD Set)

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

Little House On The Prairie's epic story continues on home video with this exceptional release of the classic television series by Lionsgate. Spanning 22 episodes, this limited edition collection has fully restored picture and sound as well as a ton of new extras that are a must for fans of the series. This Eighth Season was produced by star Michael Landon during 1981 & 1982 and follows Laura's family through many exciting real life struggles.

Nellie and Percival must move to New York and the Oleson's adopt Nancy. Dr. Ledoux moves to Walnut Grove and proves, beyond a doubt, that he deserves the community's respect. Charles and Nels become concerned when the children of the town are influenced by a daredevil to attempt dangerous stunts. Mr. Edwards loses his son and enlists the aid of Charles to investigate the real circumstances behind his death. The Ingalls and the Wilders share cherished memories when they are snowed in at Christmas. Charles and Caroline risk losing James and Cassandra when an uncle files for custody of the children. Laura and Almanzo's budding marriage faces serious difficulties following Almanzo's terrible stroke. When James is shot and lapses into a coma, Charles turns his to his faith in order to save his adopted son.

Presented in standard definition with a 1.33:1 full frame aspect ratio and a sharp, lossy English 2.0 Mono Dolby Digital Audio mix, the picture and image push the boundaries of DVD but, as with anything, would benefit to a high def update the way most earlier seasons were issued and are reviewed elsewhere on this site. A Digital Copy of all episodes are also included.

Extras include:

Interviews with Dean Butler and Dabbs Greer

Laura's Long Winters Documentary

Laura Ingalls Wilder Historic Site Tour

Season 8 Trivia Challenge

This season is fantastic and a great addition to your collection!
