There was a thread a while back about the same actor playing multiple roles, and I don't remember this being mentioned there. I just noticed another one while watching Look Back To Yesterday. The actor who played Vance Reed, Miss Plum's fiance, was Cooper Huckabee, who also played Herman in Troublemaker. Herman was the student in Miss Beadle's class who kept dropping his book and disrupting the class. He's also the one who was late to class because his "cow was birthin'".

That's right!!!!!!!!!!

I guess they did these out of order...but he couldn't really come back to walnut grove as a doctor when they blew it up!

The Ingall's just couldn't keep male children...I know they did it for ratings, but it was sad.

I don't think I will ever be able to watch this episode again, its too sad. I can deal, and even enjoy crying while watching this show, but I cried all the way through the two hour episode, and for a few more hours after that in bed. It was not fun.

This episode is so sad. It's weird, but I love it, yet hate it at the same time! The thought of Albert dying is unbearable. As usual, Matt & Michael L's performance here, amazing! Melissa Gilbert also makes me cry when Charles makes Laura face reality and tell herself that her brother is going to die! One of the most heartbreaking scenes ever.

One thing that always bothered me...both times he "comforted" Jenny (Shannen Doherty)...both when he arrived at Laura's house again after his hospital stay, then at the school...I couldn't help but feel that SHOULD'VE BEEN Carrie or Grace instead! Blue Even Cassandra...but it would have been more fitting with Grace or Carrie...esp. Carrie! Jenny hardly knew him, yet Carrie practically grew up with him! She was his sister, for God's sake! Oh well... it's a shame they couldn't bring the family back one more time, at least for a few minutes in that episode!

Carrie and Grace were with Caroline in another town though weren't they? If you mean the whole family should have been there, I agree. They had Caroline "seemingly" stay away until he died and when they came back to Walnut Grove , he wasn't mentioned at all in the last show, no grave site, no mention of how much Albert liked this town, fishing hole, something.

It was not written by the same man that wrote earlier shows, I always felt it was written (in my opinion of course) by a man ready to move on and who just wanted it to end and go on to something else..the destroying of the set took over any emotional attachment to the people. Even if the fans didn't like "A New Beginning" as much, he could have had a more emotional wrap-up of the characters they grew to love.,

I've always been chocked by the way Caroline seems to have forgotten Albert. She must have to come to be along with him when he was diying. And of course, she must have remembered him when she returned to Walnut Grove with Charles. No Huh?

It is too bad that they didn't take care of the whole Albert issue in the "Last Farewell". They had a chance and blew it with Karen Grassle being in that episode. They could have simply visited his grave in Walnut Grove. I never criticize Michael because I think he wrote some wonderful things, but I think he didn't handle the end of Albert the way he should have.

Willie should have been with Albert when he climbed that mountain in 'Lookback". They could have even brought Patrick back for a scene with him. Albert, Andy, Willie and Laura could have put those club badges in the box at the end.

In a lot of respects the writing was very weak when it came to Albert and the Leukemia situation. It's ironic that one of the greatest all time scenes in Little House was Albert and Charles in that hospital scene in Look Back To Yesterday. The rest of it could have sure used some improvement. I loved that character so much that I hated to see him discarded in the end without a little more recognition.

I agree...your ideas with Willie and the badges are great.
Leukemia was used with Charles Jr(or insinuated) and the boy that wanted to see the ocean, I felt using it again with Albert was overkill. I don't understand, besides ratings why they killed him off anyway. It was like they wanted no reason to have a special and bring him back. He was well liked, I don't get it.
I agree the writing was fine most of the time, but no one is perfect and the later scripts weren't that great, they had moments, (Willie's speech to his mother for instance) but not many.

I would have liked to see a special years ago, but now, too many are gone. Without, Charles, Doc Baker, Rev Alden, Mr. Edwards, and "Albert" because of the death, there would be a void.

PostSubject: Cheese Balls and Dough Balls   Sun Feb 17, 2013 10:26 am

Cheese balls are a very common fish bait. Laura used Dough Balls in the episode with Mr. Sprague, which was common also.


Here is the fish bait recipe you can use to make yourself some cheese ball bait so that you can have it handy any time you are going fishing.

To get started gather together 10 Oz. of pie pastry dough and flatten it out with a rolling pin. Roll it out until it is nice and thin and smooth. Next crumble up some blue cheese and grate up some cheddar cheese (4 Oz. of the blue cheese and 6 Oz. of the grated cheddar cheese). Take the crumbled blue cheese and the grated cheddar cheese and spread it out over the top of the flattened pastry dough.

Now fold the pastry over again covering up all of the blue cheese and cheddar cheese you just spread out on top and then roll it again. Roll it nice and thin. Keep doing this until you see that the cheese has been mixed in thoroughly throughout the dough. You will probably need to do this a few times before the cheese gets really mixed in.

Once the cheese has been mixed in thoroughly, start kneading your pastry dough vigorously while forming it into a ball. Then put the ball into a large freezer bag and add ten drops of cheddar flavoring to the bag as well. This will really get that cheesy smell going and that is what we want.

When you are ready to use some to go fishing with just take it out of the freezer and let it thaw out. You should smell a pretty strong cheese scent by now. This is what is going to attract the fish. After it has thawed out go ahead and pull smaller pieces from the large cheese ball and roll those pieces into smaller cheese balls about one inch wide to use for your bait and you are ready to go.

These cheese balls are a great fish bait that are good for catching catfish, carp and bream. Give this cheese ball fish bait a try. You just might be pleasantly surprised to see how effective they really are when it comes to catching fish.
Dough Balls
Dough ball fishing bait works as well as other baits commercially available. Fish are attracted to the tasty treat and can't help themselves when they yank the whole ball and get hooked in the process. Dough balls can be made in different flavors to appeal to many varieties of freshwater fish such as catfish, crappie, carp and crawfish. Easy to prepare, dough balls may be made ahead of time and kept in a zippered plastic bag in the refrigerator for a week or more.

I like to think that he lived to become doctor Albert Ingalls
because it stops me from crying to much! bawling cryB

This was the duchess of cambridges take on how she felt when William proposed during their official engagement interview with ITN reporter Tom Bradby. There was a real giggle at the end. Cute.

I watched this on You Tube. How very sad that Albert came so close to his dream of studying medicine, to be felled by a terminal genetic blood disorder.

I'm glad they didn't show his death; it ended on a triumphal, hopeful note.

I love this film so much but I think they could have left out the sub-plot/story about the grain price problem..More attention could have been directed towards Albert and the interactions with the other characters.

It was most moving when Charles forces Laura to say that her brother is going to die.

You are spot on about the interactions with other characters. I wrote a story 4 years ago that dealt with the same subject and posted it on fanfiction.net. The reviews really surprised me. There are a lot of people that share your opinion including me!

They strongly hinted that Albert was going to die and Kent McCray said that was the intention, but for whatever reason it seems like they couldn't bring themselves to confirm his fate onscreen. I can understand them choosing not to show his death, but they did two more movies without any mention of Albert or his death. They could have erased any doubt people had about whether he died, but chose not to.
