The third season of the Waltons continues the tradition of meaningful family entertainment. Just like the first two seasons, there are wonderful episodes in this season as well, with extensive character development in the children, John and Olivia Walton, and of course the trials of aging in Zeb and Esther Walton. The family members are so real, the plots so interesting, and the acting so excellent, that one forgets that this is a show. It is so engrossing, it is like watching a real live family.

The biggest disappointment for me is the quality of the reproduction. The first two seasons displayed superb video reproduction. The color is vivid, the film is scratch and blotch-free, and the sound quality is clear. Unfortunately, the third season episodes show none of these quality markers. My version shows scratches, blotches, poor faded color, and an inferior sound track. Much to my disappointment, the quality is not any better than taping the shows off the television. To produce the episodes without cleaning up the scratches and imperfections is uncharacteristic of the Walton tradition. The Waltons is a show known for its quality, and here are reproductions that fall far short of acceptable quality standards.

While it is nice to have the third season on DVD, viewing the episodes in this shoddy condition is a major drawback. I hope the producers of this series clean up their act and clean up their tapes before producing season four.

This season is one of the best. The highlight of the season is the first episode called 'The Conflict'. We meet Grandpa's sister-in-law Martha Corrine, her son Boone, and grandson Wade. The conflict is over the county forcing Martha Corrine off her home and land in order to build a road. It will break your heart.

Also, John-boy begins college, Ike and Corabeth get married, John-boy enters a dance marathon, Grandpa has a heart attack right before his birthday, and John-boy gets Blue the mule.

Like so many others, I too watched the original broadcasts of the Waltons for many years and loved being transported back in time to a place where family mattered, friendships were cherished, and life was not all about "getting stuff" as it is today. It seems utterly impossible to find decent family programing that is newly broadcast these days, so our family has turned to tried and true old favorites. We have the entire collection of the Little House on the Prarie series, and that was the best purchase our family ever made for entertainment! My boys (yes boys like Little House too!) are 7 and 3 and gobbled it up. I was able to use it as a reward for getting chores done and bathtime out of the way. I was literally BEGGED for another "ma and pa" show. That got me thinking about other shows that I enjoyed as a child that were wholesome, taught morals and values, and were also entertaining. The Waltons was the first one that popped into my mind. Watching these shows is a breath of fresh air...no foul language, no sexual innuendo, no having to fast forward to get past violence. The nice thing is that it also isn't dumbed down sitcome-style entertainment, but instead is a drama that truly draws your entire family into the story lines. We all long for simpler times without cell phones beckoning us and computers allowing us to work from home. Poverty wasn't a sin in the time of the Walton's, lack of time for the family was.

I can't tell you how much we are enjoying this series, and like others, we simply wish we could go and buy all the years at once to devour!

Why Are These Being Re-Released?
It's just as well, as the previous sets were double sided which made it virtually impossible to avoid getting fingerprints on. That & the fact that dual sided discs are the cheap route for pressing discs from various distributors.
