PostSubject: Some things I've noticed   Mon Oct 11, 2010 11:28 pm

Some things(bloopers, etc) I've noticed while watching LHOTP-

  • In "The Raccoon", where Jack and Jasper are fighting, you can see both animals are tied.-Big Blooper! mad

  • The Edwards have the same house that the young couple had in "Money Crop"

  • The Mumfords have the same house as the Noordstroms.

  • In "Town and Country Party", Rosemary's bra is visible under her wet dress.

  • A portable toilet and cars can be seen behind the train as Pa races up behind it on "The Caboose".-Big Blooper! mad

  • Olga Noordstrom can be seen in the crowd watching the tug of war in "Founders Day".


Feel free to add to the list. Smile

Yes, Alex. There are lost of these "bloopers" in LHOTP, but I think that the biggest, is the one you've noticed in "The Racoon", where Jack and Jasper are fighting ...both of them tied. Ranting

As for the houses, you'll notice that the School for the Blind of Walnut Grove is just the same building where lives Amos Pike in "Haunted House" , and the same hotel-house that Laura would receive when Mrs. Flannery would die. It seems that whenever they needed a big, important house, they will pick this one. Huh? The great blooper is that they distroyed it TWICE, when the fire caught it , and when Laura and Almanzo blow it up in "The Last Farewell". Whistle

There is a blooper picture of Almanzo coming out of the mercantile and in the reflection of it's windows you can see a modern day car.
Reading through the bloopers is fun. No one is perfect, even television executives, lol.

Another thing, for some reason, Laura and Mary seem to grow a lot between "Country Girls" and "Town and Country Party".

The lighting changes a lot between scenes near the end of "Founder's Day" Ranting

The children grews up pretty fast when they are little, Alex. Maybe is for that cause that you've noticed a so big change in Mary and Laura when "Town and Country Party" was aired. Smile

Another thing,
The shots of some couples kissing before they were engaged, isn't that a bit out of character for the time?
Laura and Almonzo only kissed after they were engaged(in Those Happy Golden Years).

Near the end of Circus Man, Laura's pigtails keep reversing. It's the scene where O'Hara is standing in the door, which I think is after he comes back after being asked to leave. When Laura is facing the camera, her left pigtail is hanging in front of her while her right pigtail is on her back. When the camera is on O'Hara, Laura's pigtails are reversed -- left pigtail on her back and right pigtail in front of her. It could be the other way around, but that's the way I remember it. I'm sure they filmed all of the parts of the scene with Laura facing the camera first and then all of the parts of the scene with O'Hara facing the camera (or maybe the other way around).

Um another thing, in several scenes, eg when the girls are walking into the school for the first time(in Country Girls), also where she catches the eggs and breaks them(Pride of Walnut Grove) Melissa Gilbert looks like she's trying very hard not to laugh! Laughing

In the episode where an Indian grandfather is injured and recouperating in the soddy at the Ingalls farm, there is a scene where they are all in the wagon and trying to get back to their people. It looks like the wagon is really going fast because it is bouncing everywhere. But during one split second, you can see a hand shaking the wagon cover.
(Sorry, I forget the name of the eppie and haven't watched it recently so the story may be off, but the hand is there.)

In "Mr Edward's Homecoming", Grace Snider is stamping the letters but there is no ink on the stamp because it doesn't show on the letters. scratchead

I think the epie's name is "Freedom Flight".

And, my! I didn't notice they were shaking the wagon! I must watch this one again! greenS

PostSubject: I hate...   Wed Nov 17, 2010 1:21 am

I HATE!!...

...that the writers had to write so many tragedies into Mary's life! Ranting
Having an engagement break up, losing 2 babies, one through a a miscarriage, the other when the Blind School burns down(that is another one). And portraying Mary as being bitter in life!(that is totally against the LHOTP books) Ranting
I don't blame Melissa Sue Anderson if she got sick of the later seasons... :(


I feel like panning the writers! Frying pan

And let's not forget -- Mary gets kicked by a horse and has to have a risky operation, goes blind, and feels left out when Adam regains his sight, becomes a lawyer, and makes new friends.

Only Mary becoming blind should be in IMO, because that really happened. I have no problem with that but with the other "tragedies".

Yes. I have no problem with adding some fiction to historic shows, but not to the point of changing the spirit of the real story. The fact of Mary being bitter and almost going crazy (like the moment she lost her baby in the fire) goes againts the spirit of the books her sister wrote. And then...why sio many tragedies? She had enough with loosing her sight. banghead

Besides, as you've noticed, she experiences a lot of problems even before of becoming blind..when she brokes with John Jr. it was really heartbreaking!

I don't mind if they add a bit of fiction either, as long as they don't corrupt the storyline a lot like as with Mary...IMO I have no problem with having Adam Kendall in the storyline but that's about all the added Mary bits I approve of. soapbox

Has anyone else noticed that Mr Pike's house appears to be the same as Widow Thurmons?

And it managed to be owned by many people and destroyed and then miraculously put back together again numerous times.

Yes. She looked much, but much prettier with her hair down. However, she looks more spunky with her eternal pigtails. Wink

This is really funny! In Ma's Holiday, when Mr Edwards is telling his "Sitting Bull" story, Laura is so engrossed in the story, when she reaches to pick a bean out of the dish with her hand, she actually puts her hand in her milk cup! Laughing

If anyone's noticed, Laura and Mary swap sides of the bed after the 1st episode.
In Harvest of Friends Mary is on the left, and Laura's on the right.
Thereafter, Laura is on the left and Mary on the right, for the rest of season 1 and season 2.(not sure about the other seasons because I haven't seen them greenS )

That's the way it is for seasons 3 and 4 (Mary next to the window). There's one episode where Mary and Laura switch sides and then switch back, I think because Mary wanted to keep the lamp on to study. Laura woke up the next morning and came down to breakfast in a bad mood. Charles asked her if she got up on the wrong side of the bed, and Laura replied, "No, we switched back."
