PostSubject: Rage   Fri Mar 18, 2011 12:04 am

I've been on a LH marathon today and Rage was one eppy I watched. Two things sort of rubbed me wrong that I don't think were very believable. First: Rose was obviously a doll at times. I understand they couldn't use the real baby all of the time, but couldn't they make it look a bit more realistic???
Then the part where Hester Sue and Elizabeth's beau came by Laura's to tell her that she was going to be alright. He mentions to Hester Sue that the lamps are still burning but they aren't answering .....no one just left lamps burning right? Laura then sees them driving off, yells a yells for them but they don't hear her. They should have heard her.....
I do like this episode because it shows that mental illness also happend back then. It did make me think of My Ellen also....

This is one of my favorite episodes from Season 9. I've written a couple of fan fics surrounding what happened. Actually one of them ties this episode back to My Ellen. I think I'll have to read them again. Smile

It always drives me crazy when you can tell the babies aren't real. I don't know why, but it does.

I doubt anyone ever left lamps burning. Fire hazard and all. And yes, despite the wind you would think they would have heard Laura screaming at the top of her lungs.

I wish they would have shown Almanzo and Jenny reuniting with Laura before the funeral scene. Talk about drama.

I agree about not showing Jenny and Almonzo. It would have been an awesome thing to see he realize Mr. Stark had his wife and child.

I just can't imagine how they left it out. If you want to read those fan fics I wrote that reunites Laura, Jenny, and Almanzo, you can find it at http://www.fanfiction.net/s/3577681/1/33_Safe_Again

This was okay episode. I could tell, some scenes they used a doll. I thought, they we're going show Jenny telling Almanzo, Edwards, Mr. carter, & the other guy. That Thomas was in their house. Laura is brave young lady.

Yeah, it's quite obvious in one of the scenes there's a doll's leg dangling from under the blanket. I also wondered why in the scene where Jenny finds Almanzo, Isaiah, and John that there is no dialog. You'd think Jenny would scream under her breath, someone would tell her to slow down, etc. This is one of the better episodes of season 9, although it does have some of the elements of "My Ellen".

This was a good episode. I never noticed the doll instead of the real baby. This was such a scarey episode.You could tell how scared she must have been.But she remained kind of calm.

I,too wished that had shown Jenny getting to Almanzo to tell him that Mr.Stark was at the house and he was in a rage believing Laura and Jenny to be his wife and daughter.

All the shows with Rose, it's obvious when they change to a doll..even when she had her son. The "package" in the blanket is so small and rectangle shaped it seems at times. At church once it switched from this tiny bundle to the "real" shots and back again. Even back then they had realistic baby dolls and real size dolls, I don't know why they did that either.

This was a bit like "My Ellen" showing a complete mental breakdown but I remember my daughters going "What!?" when you hear the gunshots...that was a bit scary and if they died, I would think way over the top.

yes I agree.

But I found the girl a bit annoying.

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.
