Editorial Reviews

When Little House on the Prairie made its television debut in September 1974, it captured the hearts and imaginations of families across the country. A top-rated series throughout its nine-season run, the timeless show's themes of love, discipline, morality and strong values continue to resonate with viewers around the world through its continued syndication. Nominated for 17 Emmy and three Golden Globe awards during its original TV run, Little House on the Prairie was based on the best-selling books by Laura Ingalls Wilder that documented the extraordinary adventures of a young pioneer family's struggle to build a new life for themselves on the lawless American frontier of the 1870s.

Many of the dvd's in this set are missing scenes from the series. For example, when the blind school catches on fire, Hester Sue goes to check on the tea kettle before she finds the smoke coming from the basement door. Also, one of the blind children is awakened because he is snoring and he goes to the bathroom to blow his nose. He then becomes stuck in the bathroom because the door won't open. That is why Mrs. Garvey had to go back and rescue him, resulting in her and baby Adam's death. These scenes are completely cut from the dvd. I found this out because someone had uploaded the full episodes on youtube and I realized when I rewatched my dvd's that certain scenes were missing. There were other episodes that were the same way but this is the one that sticks out in my mind. If I am going to spend money on dvd's, I expect them to be full and unedited. After all, it's not like they had to be edited for commercials. I cannot find the full episodes on youtube now (I found this out a couple of years ago after I had bought the dvd set years before). I was told the unedited dvd's were sold in France. Just know when you buy these that you are not getting the full, unedited episodes.

As others have stated, this set is heavily cut and therefore missing MANY scenes. The only ones I know of (for a fact) that are NOT cut/edited are the ones on Amazon.de called "Kleine Huis Op De Prairie". They have English audio so there's no need to worry about making a purchase. There are also some with the title "Unsere kleine Farm", but I have not personally seen them & cannot comment on if they are cut/edited or not (or if they have English audio or not). I have the "Kleine Huis Op De Prairie" versions so again, I can 100% confirm that they are NOT edited and DO have English audio.

No idea why other countries can get 100% uncut episodes, while the US get's this garbage.

Posted 1-23-2014... OK, here's the deal, so think before you buy... LHOTP Season 1 blu-ray will be available late March 2014 with much improved picture & audio quality, remastered, un-cut, in original 4:3 aspect ratio. I tell you this so that you can think about what you want to do... Buy the entire DVD set here, at a savings no doubt, but with a number of episodes being cut and not remastered from the original 35mm films (especially from Season 4 onward), or, wait it out, and buy the higher quality blu-ray sets as they become available. I have already purchased the entire series on DVD (just not all at once like this product), but will gladly buy the blu-ray sets when they come out. I can't say that for most other shows I've already bought on DVD, but I can with this one. The series is that good, as it was beautifully filmed, and is worthy of watching in the highest possible quality on a large HDTV (I prefer plasma, 50 inch+).

Do an AMAZON SEARCH for "Little House on the Prairie Season 1 (Deluxe Remastered Edition Blu-ray + UltraViolet Digital Copy)" in order to find the Season 1 blu-ray, and do a search for more seasons from time to time, as they will likely be released before long. Also be sure to check out tvshowsondvd.com for detailed press releases concerning the Season 1 blu-ray and upcoming releases.

UPDATE: There is also a new "deluxe remastered" version of at least Season 1 coming in the DVD format as well (in addition to blu-ray), just so you know...

I wanted to buy this set. I will not buy this as many of the scenes are missing and episodes are missing. You really should look into getting this fixed cause a lot of people would buy this if in fact it was UNCUT AND UNEDITED. The true fans of the show will notice in a minute if something is missing. The price you are charging for this set is way to high since scenes episodes and season ten is not included. One person had a review take out the scene selections part of the dvd if this is why everything is edited If you ever get this problem fixed I will buy but not until then.

What a shame

I bought this at target on Black Friday for $100 (regular price) I've always been a fan of this show and its nice to find episodes rarely aired on hallmark.

It hasn't been remastered (something I'm willing to overlook) unlike the previous complete series set release this one includes the pilot episode movie.

A few things I like:
Price, when some members of my family collected each season they paid upwards of $30 per season and the first season set did not include the pilot movie and you had to shell out an additional $15 for that movie.

The set comes in its own dvd binder, the discs are well protected and it will last for quite some time.

A few things I love:

Price and seeing some episodes rarely seen on Hallmark.
Bonus features

A few things I don't like:

The liner notes are pathetic, it only includes the titles of the episodes with no discriptions. Forcing me to make my own.

This set is an absolute shame, this company missed a great opportunity of offering a product that loyal fans would have gladly paid a premium for. I fully agree with so many other posters here in regard to the deceptive marking of the set's content; it should have been clearly described and given buyers the choice of purchasing the edited version or not.

cc?
No subbies at all. The pilot disc claims to be captioned but it's not. The discs of the 9 seasons ARE captioned however. To complete you will need to buy the box marked special edition with the 3 sequel films and 2 discs of extras. Those discs are also captioned.
