Editorial Reviews

The Waltons: The Complete Fourth Season finds life on Walton's Mountain changing in some significant ways. The first episode, "The Sermon," sets the tone with a story in which oldest son John-Boy Walton (Richard Thomas) is asked by the local preacher (John Ritter) to substitute for him at one Sunday service. Meanwhile, John-Boy's mother, Olivia (Michael Learned), is asked by the local schoolteacher to fill in for her for a week. Each of these Waltons has doubts that they're up to the task (Olivia has an especially hard time, since her charges include several of her own children). But they persevere, and Olivia finds herself teaching on and off throughout the season. Meanwhile, patriarch John (Ralph Waite) has a midlife crisis that causes him to leave home for a stretch, a cousin of Olivia's comes to grieve the death of her husband, the family closely follows the abdication of King Edward from the throne in England, and musician Jason Walton (Jon Walmsley) has a crisis of confidence as a performer. Special episodes include "The Fighter," starring Cleavon Little as a boxer who takes a paying job working for the Waltons, and whose presence upsets Olivia and Grandma (Ellen Corby). "The Genius" finds John-Boy being asked by his school to supervise a brilliant but socially cold 16-year-old who has to learn a lot about life. --Tom Keogh

Product Description

It's 1936: Hitler and Mussolini threaten the world, King Edward gives up the English throne for love, Gangbusters is on the radio, a movie crew hires John-Boy as a scriptwriter, Mary Ellen applies to nursing school, Jim-Bob discovers a shocking fact about his birth and a fire drives the Waltons from their home. Events large and small, far off and near touch the lives of all 11 Waltons, from Grandpa down to little Elizabeth. They bring tests, tears and triumphs...and bring the closely knit Waltons even closer together.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best season of the series November 21, 2006
By caj
There were many great seasons of this special show, but season four is the best IMO. Standout episodes include:

The Sermon - John Boy is asked to preach Sunday services and he gets plenty of coaching from proud Grandma.

The Competition - Ben gets angry and leaves just as the Waltons get into a competition for a huge contract.

The Search - Story by Ellen Corby (Grandma) Olivia, Jim Bob and Elizabeth are lost in the woods after a car accident.

The Fox - Grandpa's war stories don't quite live up to the truth.

The Burnout - The family is scattered after the house burns down.

The Quiliting - Tensions flare between Grandma, Olivia and Mary Ellen after Grandma plans a quilting party to announce Mary Ellen is ready for courting.

The House - Grandma and Grandpa are on different sides of the county's decision to tear down an old house.

4.0 out of 5 stars Waltons Series Remains a Classic in TV Viewing January 29, 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The age of innocence is long gone from America TV. I grew up in the 1960's and remember the days of family-friendly television. Remember those great family shows that every member of the family could enjoy - The Andy Griffith Show, The Dick Van Dyke Show, That Girl, Father Knows Best, Leave It To Beaver, and Ozzie and Harriet? A few family-friendly shows remained in the 1970's: The Partridge Family, The Brady Bunch, and best of all ... The Waltons. Since the Waltons left TV in the early 1980's there have been very few quality tv shows the entire family can watch and enjoy together ("The Wonder Years" stands out as one of these). Since the days of adult-oriented "Dallas" and other similar sleazy sex melodramas, the major tv networks have been set on corrupting and ridiculing the strong family values that made America a once-great and proud nation.

Thank goodness for The Waltons! The Waltons is a series that everyone in the family can sit down and enjoy together. Parents can relax because there is no cursing or foul language, no double-entendre sex jokes, no graphic violence, just real characters growing up in a much more innocent age than we currently live in. (For a look at how our grandparents grew up, watch the Waltons).

In Season Four of the series, 24 episodes are presented, all of them being quality family enertainment. I have my favorite episodes of season 4 and you will too - there is much to like about this season. John-boy grows closer to graduation from college and begins a newspaper, Mary-Ellen begins her first steps in her nursing career, Ben grows into a young man with strong ideas of his own, and of course there is always the steady presence of the parents and grandparents, guiding this large family through the trying years of the Great Depression.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love the Waltons! December 6, 2006
I love this series. I just wish they would get them out faster. Every year when we buy them, we will lay in bed at night and watch one episode. As the end of each season draws near, we may skip a night here and there to make them last longer. We really miss them when it's over. I wish they would release them all or at least release one every 4 or 6 months. I have no patience...

5.0 out of 5 stars Hello and Goodbye John Boy December 13, 2006
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
While we are getting ready to say goodbye to John Boy in the 5th season (not this 4th season), every episode deserves 5 stars. I loved this show growing up (high school) and can watch reruns forever. I'm planning on purchasing all seasons, as I treasure every episode. This is my all time favorite television show and, I think, always will be.

5.0 out of 5 stars America's Family November 15, 2006
It's unlikely that any of us have known a family "just like The Waltons" but I grew up in a community that had some a lot like them. In these times watching "The Waltons" should be tax deductable as "therapy." Where else can you get a hour of relaxation at such a great price.

Now don't get the wrong impression of my rating because this is an excellent family show and it gets 5 stars it that area, but the 2 rating is my opinion of the poor way that this quality show was put on DVD.. First i noticed that this is a bare bones transfer with no extras but you would think since we are paying good money for these dvds that they would at least make sure the trasnfer quality from film to dvd is excellent, but sadly its not, it seems like there was not much care taken in the transfer process. Let me explain, during the opening music i noticed that it fades in and out something that i did not notice in the previous 3 seasons. Also on a few episodes i just watched, it appears like there was little cleaning up of the film done before transfer to get rid of all the spots or floaters that sometimes appear on older films, it would have been nice if the time was taken to remaster the film for good dvd viewing. It also would have been nice to include a closed caption feature for the hearing impaired for those who need it. In closing i really enjoy watching the Waltons and I am very pleased to have it on DVD, but if a little more care and extra work was put into the transfer process this could be so much better and i would feel i am getting the most for my money spent...

5.0 out of 5 stars Forget the Brady Bunch..... February 2, 2007
.....and to you naysayers out there, forget the lame-duck 7th Heaven as well. Not only is this one of the best family TV classics to ever hit the airwaves, it also happens to be, for the record, one of the most outstanding, well-crafted, poignant, family-oriented shows EVER. They know how to avoid cliches (where the Bradys cannot) and (sorry, again) know how to be BOTH sincere AND endearing WITHOUT being lame or watering it down (where 7th Heaven always seems to excel at). Plus, they also know how to show a little more pickup (where Little House can't; it's not at all lame, but does tend to drag on).

Sure, they even have their own disputes and squabbles amongst themselves, but also without turning it into something downright nasty, brutal, or patronizing. So, having said all that, this is definitely one classic TV show which will always deserve a special place in my heart. ;)

No English Subtitles, FRENCH ONLY! DUH!
This is on purpose. You can watch the "closed captioning" in English if you are hard of hearing. The subtitles are something entirely different.
