World War II has a profound impact on The Waltons: The Complete Seventh Season, as does the absence of John-Boy Walton (Richard Thomas), central figure in the first six years of the popular television drama. With John-Boy offscreen, stationed in England and writing for the American "Stars and Stripes" military magazine, The Waltons places its entire focus on the rest of the clan. One can feel a gap in the show, but The Complete Seventh Season holds up largely because of the war's influence on storylines. Patriarch John Sr. (Ralph Waite), his wife Olivia (Michael Learned), and their large brood spend 1941 adjusting to ceaseless changes, beginning with increased demand on John's lumber mill to meet defense contract demands. With John spending more and more time off the mountain negotiating with the government like a buttoned-down businessman, operation of the Waltons' mill falls to his son Ben (Eric Scott), who has to learn what it means to be the boss of hired hands. Meanwhile, Jason (Jon Walmsley) gets closer to graduation and still makes his way by playing piano at the Dew Drop Inn. He also finds himself feeling guilty over not enlisting in the war effort, but is uncertain about whether or not he might be a conscientious objector--a position that doesn't sit well with some of the men in town.

Jim-Bob (David W. Harper) dreams (and dreams) of becoming a pilot but is too young to enlist. The laconic teen also falls in love with a girl leaning toward entering a convent--the experience is painful, to say the least. But something in Jim-Bob grows up after that and stays that way. As for the girls, Mary Ellen (Judy Norton Taylor) struggles with a full-time job as a nurse while leaving her baby at home, though none of those complications compares with the loss she endures the day Japan attacks Pearl Harbor, where her doctor husband is stationed. Erin (Mary Beth McDonough) and Elizabeth (Kami Cotler) carry on with work and school, and Grandma (Ellen Corby) gets around pretty well while suffering the long-term results of a stroke. The war affects everything on Walton's Mountain, including race relations, the clientele at the Dew Drop Inn, the employment scene. But if that's not enough change for The Complete Seventh Season, there's a whopper of a development midway through the year affecting the health and presence of Olivia in the show. There's always change on The Waltons, but none has ever been quite as extensive or sad as what happens on The Complete Seventh Season. Despite (or even because of) the withdrawal of Richard Thomas from The Waltons, there is a delicate balance between the other characters heretofore unseen. --Tom Keogh

4.0 out of 5 stars Season Seven: A Time for Change January 20, 2008
Format:DVD
While this season may not be the best season of "The Waltons," it certainly is a season to be remembered. Right from the start, the beloved grandfather has died, and everyone is grieved in "The Empty Nest 1&2." Will Geer had apparently died between season six and seven, leaving Grandma (Ellen Corby) quite alone. Ben, now working the mill with his father, marries Cindy. More importantly, WWII begins with the bombing of Pearl Harbor--where Curt is stationed, and he dies as a result. Olivia (Michael Leanerd) finds out she has turberculosis and leaves the Walton family for a while. Elizabeth has her 13th birthday, Jim-Bob gets a tattoo, and Jim-Bob joins the Army.

Truly one of the most interesting seasons "The Waltons" had, however the disappearance of Richard Thomas and Will Geer is keenly felt. One could say that this was also one of the more weaker seasons of the show, but still one worth watching. The following is an episode list of Season Seven:

1. The Empty Nest (1)
2. The Empty Nest (2)
3. The Calling
4. The Moonshiner
5. The Obsession
6. The Changeling
7. The Portrait
8. The Captive
9. The Illusion
10. The Beau
11. Day of Infamy
12. The Yearning
13. The Boosters
14. The Conscience
15. The Obstacle
17. The Parting
18. The Burden
19. The Pin-Up
20. The Attack
21. The Legacy
22. The Outsider
23. The Torch
24. The Talespin
25. Founder's Day--with a guest appearance by Earl Hamner, creator of the series.

So, everyone, relax and enjoy the changes this wonderful family endures. And remember, things in your family change too.

4.0 out of 5 stars Season 7 begins with Season 6 April 29, 2008
By T.S.
Format:DVD
I suggest you watch the last episode of season 6 prior to viewing the first episodes of season 7. It really makes you appreciate the relationship between Will Geer and Ellen Corby.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Day of Infamy" extremely well done July 4, 2008
Format:DVD
"Day of Infamy" chronicles the impact of December 7, 1941 on The Walton family. It is an incredibly moving episode with very understated but strong performances. Ralph Waite, Judy Norton-Taylor, and David Harper are particularly outstanding in the final heartbreaking scene. I know my own grandparents had to endure a moment just like the one when Jim-Bob brings the telegram home to the family, and I found this scene gut-wrenching.

Once again, a wonderful Season to enjoy. The Waltons always seem to warm our hearts and make us realize that family is what's really important in life. If you need to get back to the basics of what life is all about, you need the Waltons, they won't fail you. Good old fashioned values are what's missing in todays society, if only we could all take a lesson from the Walton family. Heart warming through and through....

5.0 out of 5 stars Waltons go through changes May 13, 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
As we all know, the Waltons go through many changes this season. Many are not happy changes, but they are depicted very well, and in a very moving way. I laughed and cried with them all over again. I have to say, I feel this season produced some of the best written episodes of the series. This was truly one of the finest series ever put on tv, and I feel privileged to have grown up with this family; it reminds me so much of my own family.

4.0 out of 5 stars 1941 - A Year of Infamy on Walton's Mountain January 18, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is the seventh of nine seasons of "The Waltons", a family-oriented drama set in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia. This season originally aired in 1978. This is the first full season without the central character of John-boy Walton. During the first five seasons, John-boy was the focus of the show, as he is the narrator, and his journals and writings are the source of the individual episodes. John-boy leaves his mountain home at the end of season five, and appears for several episodes at the end of season six. With John-boys absence, the show now focuses on the other members of the Walton family (and friends). In my opinion, this season is the first where the writing suffers a bit. To be sure, there are some very good episodes in this season, but there are several episodes which lack the quality and feeling typical of earlier Walton seasons. Even with an "uneven" season in terms of quality, these episodes are still worth watching (and owning), as they deal with real family and personal issues in a humane and loving way. The Waltons is a classic TV series that beat the odds, in that it had a loyal audience without resorting to special-effects, gratuitous violence, or overt sexual themes. It is entertainment with a message suitable for the entire family. I watch The Waltons with my children and they love the shows. Walton time is family time.

Three episodes stand out in my mind as exceptional. The first is a touching two-part episode devoted to the death of Grandpa Zeb Walton (Will Geer), who died between seasons six and seven. This is a touching episode that will bring tears to every viewer. Ellen Corby (Grandma Walton) who suffered a real-life stroke, reprises her role as Grandma Esther Walton, and her long life with Zeb is recounted in flashbacks.

5.0 out of 5 stars Grampa Walton's Goodbye June 16, 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
After receiving my 7th Season of the Walton's I immediately put it in my DVD player. The first show was about Grandpa Walton's death. In real life I had heard Will Geer had died and felt sympathy for all of the cast as they were such a perfect family from "the old days". As the Walton's each said their goodbye at the grave, I shed a few tears with them also knowing how they all felt.
