Is the series appropriate/suitable for children?

It is, but there are a couple of episodes with very dark themes. I'm thinking of "Sylvia" and "May We Make Them Proud." Children might be disturbed by certain scenes in those.

scratchead It is great for children, but as Rob said, some episodes have dark themes. For those episodes, you would definitely want to be in the same room to talk them through things.

100 Mile Walk (The accidental explosion)
Darkness is My Friend (Charles getting shot through the door)
He Was Only Twelve (would be hard for them to see another child shot)

Sylvia is one that is not suitable for children. My Ellen and Rage would also be scary for children to watch. I don't watch Sylvia that much. Gives me the creeps.

Which episodes from each season do you think are suitable for children?

scratchead Depending on the age of your children, you would have to go through each episode from each season and decide that for yourself. Kids mature differently and some can handle the darker episodes better compared to the more immature child. What I feel is alright for my kids to watch might not be near suitable for yours. so you have to watch and decide on your own.

Like Sylvia where a girl gets raped/sexually assaulted, I don't think I like Be My Friend because of an abusive religious father and that Charles threatened to give Laura a whipping for walking along the creek and searching for notes in bottles all day and making him upset. I thought he would never hit her.

I wouldn't like The Cheaters due to Jonathan Garvey taking his son Andrew for a whipping because he cheated in an exam. Well, at least the ending was funny where Harriet Olesen found out that her daughter Nellie was the one who cheated and that she chased her out of the schoolhouse while the other kids followed them and Alice Garvey laughed.

And I certainly wouldn't like May We Make Them Proud because of Alice Garvey and Adam. Jr being burned to death.

How very serious/extreme. And how morally family/child-friendly and controversial, I think.

No wonder some episodes are rated-PG and one of them (Sylvia) is rated-12 while the rest is rated-U.

It's kind of funny, really. Little House has a reputation for being the ultimate "family show." But they definitely explored some very dark themes.
