4.0 out of 5 stars Five stars for the story! January 21, 2004
Format:DVD
This television series is based on the books of Laura Ingalls Wilder (1867-1957), who wrote the story of her family's life on the prairie. I read these books growing up and then loved the TV series as well. Michael Landon, that I had seen on "Bonanza", was the icing on the cake: one of my favorite actors helping to tell one of my favorite stories.
Here's an episode guide, with a tiny description:
1. Castoffs: Pa gives Laura a new dog after her dog Jack dies. She doesn't want a new dog.
2. Times Of Change: Charles and Mary are very disappointed in what life in Chicago is really like.

3. My Ellen: Friend Ellen drowns and Ellen's mother thinks that Laura is her daughter.
4. The Handyman: When Charles is away, Mary suspects that Caroline and a hired man are falling in love.

5. The Wolves: After Laura and Andy set up a pen for wolf cubs in the barn, wild dogs try to get into the barn.
6.. The Creeper of Walnut Grove: Laura and Andy try to figure who is stealing things in Walnut Grove with hilarious results.
7. To Run And Hide: Dr. Baker finds a new doctor for the town after he loses a patient, only to find that the new doctor may not be so dedicated.
8. The Aftermath: Jesse and Frank James take hostages.
9. The High Cost Of Being Right: After their barn burns down, Mr. Garvey's wife gets a job in spite his objections.
10. The Fighter: Charles boxes a man who turns out to be very ill.
11. Meet Me At The Fair: At the fair, Carrie climbs into the basket of a hot air balloon.
12. Here Come The Brides: A newcomer falls in love with Miss Beadle, and Nellie Oleson falls in love with the newcomer's son.

5.0 out of 5 stars Keep them coming! January 8, 2004
Format:DVD
For those who'd like to know, here is the in-order list of episodes from Season Four, which first aired from September 1977 to March 1978. Memorable moments include the death of Laura's beloved dog Jack (and the introduction of his replacement Bandit), a near divorce of the Garveys (that concludes in the judge pronouncing both of them "crazy,"), Carrie's adventures in a hot-air balloon, the birth of Grace Ingalls, Mary's dealing with blindness, and the introduction of Adam Kendall. Thanks to all involved in the DVD release of this beloved TV series! I can't wait to buy this one!

1.0 out of 5 stars Great Show, Lousy DVD! September 5, 2004
Format:DVD
Little House is one of the best family shows ever made and deserves far better treatment than what is given here. DVD seasons 1-3 suffer from the same problems, but season 4 seems to be the runt of the litter. There are a number of problems from poor audio (there are times when someone is speaking and no sound at all is heard), lack of picture clearness, horrible editing, deleted scenes and an overall feeling of inbalance. The people responsible for this abonimation should be ashamed of themselves.

Stick with the VHS.

5.0 out of 5 stars Watershed Fourth Season for Little House June 19, 2006
Format:DVD
Season 4 of Little House probably has the most turmoil and changes for little Walnut Grove and its townspeople as of yet.

In this season, Laura's beloved dog Jack dies (of old age) and she is so distraught that she cannot accept the family's new pet, Bandit; Charles and Mary travel to Chicago, where Charles calls himself a dumb farmer and Mary finds out that her fiance John is no longer in love with her; Charles goes away for business and handyman Chris is hired to finish the kitchen for Caroline, in the process falling in love with her; Doc Baker loses a patient in a fall and decides that he is no longer a good doctor and decides to become a farmer instead; Alice and Jonathan Garvey nearly divorce over Alice working; Jesse and Frank James hide out from the law in Walnut Grove; Miss Beadle falls in love with farmer Adam Simms, Nellie falls in love with Adam's son Luke, and both run off to get married (only the elder Simms' marriage is a keeper); Mary gets her first teaching job, in a backwoods country; the Ingalls family learns of a big inheritance, causing their old friends to think they will be putting on airs and Mrs. Oleson to want to rub shoulders with them; the Ingalls family welcomes Baby Grace; Mary begins to lose her eyesight and after becoming blind, goes to a special school in Iowa; with the town's resources and economy faltering due to the railroad, the Ingalls family decides to follow Mary to Winoka, Dakota, where she has a teaching job with her instructor, Adam.

The last two episodes of this season are two of the very finest that Little House would ever produce. The emotions are raw and very much on the surface. The acting is stellar - - in fact, Melissa Sue Anderson was nominated for an Emmy for her work as Mary in the two part episode.
