Editors Note
Note When CBS debuted its new series, THE WALTONS, in 1972, no one was prepared for the level of success it reached. Telling the story of a large family living on Walton's Mountain during the Great Depression, the series tackles universal themes that continue to ring true to this day. Told from the perspective of John Boy (Richard Thomas), an aspiring writer who makes his way through college and into adulthood, THE WALTONS is a timeless work of entertainment. This groundbreaking season takes the show into the conflicts of the World War II era, as soldiers train on the family property and Curt enters military service. Though a period of transitions, it is also a time of homecoming as John Boy drops in from New York City and Grandma Esther makes an emotional return from the hospital. This collection presents every episode of the sixth season.

Reviews
ReviewSource DVD Verdict
Review The Waltons had a successful run by any measure. It was critically acclaimed, earning a flotilla of Emmy and Golden Globe nods over the years. It was long lived, spanning almost ten years in its nine-season run. Most important, though, was its extensive and loyal fan base, which allowed the show's ratings to flourish in a time when fluorescent gel bracelets and preppy clothes ruled the day...If you have even the slightest interest in family television, you could do much worse than The Waltons. It doesn't always go for the obvious neat ending, which causes you to think about the people and events in ways you didn't expect. The stories aren't always sweet, but the overall tone of the show is. Best of all, you and your family might actually absorb some of The Waltons' care, respect, and good humor.
