"...paved the way for the success of the popular TV series Little House On The Prairie... Britt Gillette, The DVD Report
Editor's NoteWhen 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.
