Judge David Johnson doesn't take kindly to prairie folk.
Kickin' it with the Ingalls on the prizzarie!
The latest collection of episodes in "The Girls of Little House on the Prairie" series (must…resist…inappropriate…calendar…joke) bundles up three shows from the legendary Little House on the Prairie, bound together with the theme of friendship.
"Town Party, Country Party"
Moral: Some people are born different but that doesn't mean they shouldn't be invited to your all-girls frontier party.
Trademark Little House Warm and Fuzzies Moment: When Olga's ill-tempered father sees his daughter playing for the first time and breaks down into tears.
Bad-Ass Michael Landon Moment: Opening up a pint of whoop-ass on Olga's dad, when he confronts him in the barn about meddling in his affairs.
Reason #2355 Why Living on the Frontier Would Suck: The cure for a short leg? A horrible wooden shoe.
"At the End of the Rainbow"
Moral: Sometimes the greatest gift you can give your family isn't riches but your love and unquestioning obedience.
Trademark Little House Warm and Fuzzies Moment: Pa tells Laura she's worth more to the family than any amount of gold.
Bad-Ass Michael Landon Moment: When Laura says she's glad she couldn't buy a huge house because that would mean Ma would have too many rooms to clean, Pa laughs along, agreeing.
Reason #2356 Why Living on the Frontier Would Suck: You have to wait four weeks for a screen door?!
"Be My Friend"
Moral: If you've got a surprise pregnancy, snooker some strangers into adopting your bastard child, using a complex system of river correspondence.
Trademark Little House Warm and Fuzzies Moment: Laura's tearful farewell to the baby.
Bad-Ass Michael Landon Moment: Baby daddy's forceful declaration to take responsibility for his offspring, following Pa's fatherhood pep talk.
Reason #2357 Why Living on the Frontier Would Suck: When your crappy wooden house burns down, you're pretty much screwed.
Picture quality ranges from gritty-and-dated to not-so-gritty-and-dated.
It's full frame, 2.0 stereo all the way, and no extras.
