I never watched Little House when I was young and I regret that. I was in my 40s before my wife got me hooked on the series. I've since bought each season and have watched and really enjoyed them all.

Season 8 seems a bit off though. I'm only about 3 disks into the season, but many of the long-standing characters leave the series and the stories seem to shift focus to the younger children. They also seem to re-hash themes from prior seasons. Michael Landon appears to be taking more of a back-seat role on the acting front as his character plays less and less of a feature in this season.

I like the episodes so far, but they are not as good as earlier seasons. If you have enjoyed the series as a whole, then you should enjoy season 8 as well. Just keep in mind that the stories are not as impressive as prior seasons.

I'd recommend this series to anyone willing to watch it. I read the books when I was younger and started watching the series because of that. As watching the series progressed I became one of those "Came because of the books, stayed because of Michael Landon" types. I enjoy the characters and will definitely be holding on to the entire series for any children to watch because the concept of family-friendly TV is going downhill fast...

The sound quality is not as good past season 6 and I've not been able to get closed captions to work (the packaging up to season 6 indicates closed caption available); still unsure whether it's a disc issue or a TV issue, but if you require CC I'd recommend checking up on this before purchase.

I enjoyed this season of Little House as much as the others. It's such a great family show. I didn't have the problem of the audio not going along with the actors' lips as I had in seasons 6 and 7 of this series. Some of the scenes are cut away a little sharply it seems and the interviews with Dean Butler are a little lame, but overall I am still enjoying the series and plan to complete the collection.

The 8th season of Little House on the Prairie brings to a close the main cast that we've seen the last 8 seasons. Heartwarming episodes are just great and I loved every moment. I am sad to see the end of the 8th season as LHOTP just wasn't the same seasons 9 and 10. Totally worth the money to complete your set with season 8!

I love the LHOTP series, but the DVDs could be so much better. Editing, timing, sound are often way off, but like big corp. has figured out, I'll watch it anyway, because the show is just so wonderful.
