"Little House On The Prairie" Season Eight was the final year of the traditional series; Season 9 and the following TV movies revolved around the new(er) cast after Charles and his family moved to the city. As a result, most fans of this beloved program consider this to be the final season and the best of this long running family friendly dramatic program.
Mary and Adam move to New York in season eight and return for a Christmas visit with the entire family in the Ingallses little house. Nellie also moves and Mrs. Oleson adopts a new daughter who is even more warped (believe it or not) than Nellie ever was. Cassandra and James' uncle strikes it big and tries to steal his niece and nephew away from Charles and Caroline on the eve of their legal adoption. Caroline teaches Laura's class a very humanitarian lesson when Almonzo is away. ...These, and many more classic eps are just waiting to be viewed from Season 8!
Here is a detailed list of ever episode from Season 8:
The Reincarnation of Nellie (part 1) (October 5, 1981)
Percival and Nellie move New York so that Percival can run the family business. The Olesons decide adopt a girl named Nancy who is even more spoiled than Nellie ever was. Suffice it to say, Mrs. Oleson falls in love with her new adopted daughter.
The Reincarnation of Nellie (part 2) (October 5, 1981)
Coincidentally (because Nellie moved there in the previous episode), Adam and Mary move to New York at the beginning of the episode. Where Nellie was simply a spoiled brat, Nancy proves to be a demented creature hell-bent on causing trouble. With the help of Albert and Willie, Mrs.Read more ›

There is a lot of drama in this season (8): Almanzo gets hurt and cannot walk, then he and Laura lose their home, almost their relationship, and Eliza Jane tries to save the day and fails (all in one two-part episode). James gets shot and almost dies so Pa, slightly crazed, takes him away and erects an altar and prays for him out in the woods. "Stone Soup" is a touching episode where a very pregnant Laura struggles to look after the dying tree plot. We are also introduced to Nancy (Harriet, in her sadness over Nellie moving away adopts a replacement) and her famous line "You HATE me!!" Nancy creates a lot of drama as she is more evil than Nellie.
As a big fan of the show, and of the real Laura Ingalls Wilder, I enjoyed this season. It is definitely not true to the books, terribly inaccurate, but as a television show, it is great. Out of the whole series, the first season was the closet in authenticity to Laura's fiction books with more unique plot lines. As the series progressed through the years, it moved further and further from the literature. I also highly recommend the pilot episode to true fans; it is not found on any of the season disks, only separate.
Amazingly though, Season 8 is one of my favorite seasons even with the loss of some big name characters. This season focuses on more "sadness, death, and overall morbidity as you will be crying for most of them". Flu Epidemics, Charles and Mr.Edwards seeking revenge, Laura and Almonzo losing their home to a Tornado, Almonzo suffers a stroke, Charles Ingalls son getting shot in a bank robbery, the loss of Mr. Edwards son (John Jr.) in a horrible accident that causes him to become a raging alcoholic and then eventually loses his family in the process. The final 2 hour episode "He was only 12" was one of Michael Landon's best performances as Charles Ingalls.Read more ›
