The 24 episodes included in this box set feature a number of very strong stories, including a handful of classics, all immersed in the series' typically old-Hollywood production values. (Several season two shows were directed by Waltons' star Ralph Waite.) Among the best is the premiere, "The Journey," in which the ever-noble, college-bound John-Boy (Richard Thomas) passes on a school dance and an important date to take an aging neighbor, Maggie Mackenzie (Linda Watkins), on a special, final journey. "The Separation" finds Grandpa (Will Geer) and Grandma (Ellen Corby) Walton feudingeven living apart--after the former crafts a secret plan to raise money to pay the family's electricity bill. (Their reconciliation is one of the series' most enjoyable and tender moments.) The memorable "The Thanksgiving Story" is a nail-biter in which John-Boy, facing a hopeful future as he awaits college and a visit from his girlfriend, endures a head injury in the family mill and must undergo surgery. Finally, "The Honeymoon" sees John (Waite) and Olivia (Michael Learned) finally taking their honeymoon after 19 years of marriage and seven kids. Throughout all the major storylines is a constant buzz of subplots concerning John-Boy's younger siblingstheir joys and disappointments, first loves, accomplishments and relationships with one another. The Waltons never slows down, but it is capable of revealing the most delicate of feelings within shared or private moments. --Tom Keogh
The packaging is standard with most DVD sets and the quality of the pictures are fine.
It captured peoples hearts because it told stories of real people, real people in a family that loved and cared for each other.
This is a wonderfully enjoyable series if you like The Waltons and their good family values.
I bought this as a Christmas present for my mother who absolutely loves the Walton's!Published 1 month ago by Dannikins

|The Waltons Season 2 Special Edition||
There are two "editions" of Season 2, but the difference appears only to be a simple repackaging. The original set was housed in a digipak case (folded, book-style paperboard with transparent, hard-plastic disc holders inside), but the second edition is sold in an amaray keep case.
